Win Tickets ($20): Once Upon a Mattress @ ACMA Summer Theatre | Hit Broadway Musical Comedy (July 30-Aug 1)
ACMA Summer Theatre presents the musical comedy Once Upon a Mattress, a farcical twist on the tale of “The Princess and The Pea,” which offers a better-than-usual answer to the question of what makes a “true” princess. (Hint: a true princess gets muddy, stands up for herself, and has a great sense of humor. She might or might not feel a lump in the mattress). To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($44): Floater @ Crystal Ballroom | Rock, Alternative Rock, w/ Cambrian Explosion (July 31)
Portland-by-way-of-Eugene, Oregon trio Floater deliver their best album to date with “Wake,” their eighth studio album. Writing more sophisticated, well-crafted songs with each release, “Wake” (Typhon Records) delivers a twelve-track collection of melodic, pop-laden psychedelic guitar-rock decked out in chunky guitar riffs, primal drumming, and soaring vocals.

Win Tickets ($24): The Yachtsmen & Philly’s Phunkestra @ Jimmy Mak’s | Yacht Rock, Funk, Jazz, Soul, R&B (July 31)
The genre of music called “yacht rock,” which has been rediscovered by hipsters in the past few years, was created in the mid-to-late ’70s and ran its course by around 1984. This is the kind of laid-back, hedonistic “lifestyle music” that lends itself to balmy happy hours on the beach. To win, comment on this post here.
