Win Tickets ($24): Soul’d Out & The Goodfoot present: Mike Love | Roots Reggae (September 17)
Revolutionary music may seem hard to come by in these days and times. Long gone is the era of artists like Bob Marley, The Clash, Stevie Wonder and Patti Smith getting airplay and bringing their messages to the masses. But that doesn’t mean that the revolution isn’t still brewing in the hearts and minds of many people around the globe. To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($60): Karla Bonoff @ Aladdin Theater | Folk, Rock, Pop (September 18)
Born and raised in Southern California, Karla Bonoff was a songwriter by the age of fifteen. She and her sister Lisa were writing songs and playing as a duo titled “The Daughters of Chester P” named after their father, Dr. Chester Paul Bonoff. She had already fallen in love with the guitar and studied with Frank Hamilton of the famous folk group, The Weavers. By 16, Karla and her sister Lisa auditioned for Elektra Records. An 11-song demo [recorded by Doors’ engineer Bruce Botnick] was recorded but no deal came of this first effort. To win, comment on this story here.

Win Tickets ($20): Havana Nights Salsa Dance w/ Cuban Orchestra Melao de Cuba @ Mississippi Pizza Pub | Dance Lesson, AfroCuban Salsa Latin Jazz (September 18)
Salsa music is exemplary of all things Cuban, in the sense it is warm, sensual and easygoing. Use the conga, horns and cowbell rhythms to take your hips for a journey. Just as molasses is transformed into rum, one of the oldest spirits of the world, Melao de Cuba transforms elements of Afro-Cuban and Spanish music into vibrant, danceable music that lifts your spirit and brings joy to your heart.

Win Tickets ($40): Destroyer @ Wonder Ballroom | w/ Frog Eyes, Indie Rock (September 18)
Trouble in Dreams continues Bejars lyrical and musical assault on all that is stagnant in modern popular music. His is a body of work that consistently flouts convention in favor of musical leaps of faith, statements of purpose cloaked in subterfuge, and the joyous refrain of an optimists heart cloaked in cynicism. Anthems sprawl with shifting layers of guitar and piano, spinning just to the edge of chaos and back, while referencing fantastical realms and mysterious women who may or may not approve of our interloping voyeurism.

Win Tickets ($40): Toro Y Moi @ Revolution Hall | w/ Astronauts, etc, Indie Soul, Supermelodic Pulp (September 19)
Opening to the scream of F1’s speeding around a racetrack, and maintaining that intensity with booming guitar riffs and psychedelic effects throughout, the forthcoming album from Toro Y Moi is definitely making a statement. Or maybe a few statements. But Chaz Bundick, the frontman and songwriter, is leaving it up to you to figure out what they are. While it is obvious that each song is crafted around a personally meaningful experience, Chaz seems to purposefully leave the lyrics just vague enough to let each listener mold it into something unique. Chaz presents you with a few themes: love, beauty, nature; and gently lets go of your hand so you can wander off on your own. To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($84): Portland’s Rose City Rollers @ Oaks Park | Fresh Meat vs Salem, Rosebuds Double Header, Wreckers vs Medford (September 18-20)
