Win Tickets ($59): L7 @ Crystal Ballroom | Grunge, Punk Rock, Alternative Metal (November 2)
Although often lumped in with the “Seattle Movement” of the early ’90s (due to their sound, look, and attitude), the all-female punk band L7 hailed originally from Los Angeles. The seeds for L7 (whose name was taken from a slang term in the ’50s that meant someone who was a “square”) were planted in 1985, when a pair of guitarists/singers, Suzi Gardner and Donita Sparks, decided to start a band. Over the next few years, the group extended its lineup to include bassist Jennifer Finch and drummer Dee Plakas, as their sound grew more and more metallic, yet never losing the attack and simplicity of punk.

Win Tickets ($34): Noah Gundersen @ Aladdin Theater | Indie, Folk, w/ Whitehorse (November 3)
For Noah Gundersen, the past few years have brought about immense growth and change, both as an artist and as a young man grappling with issues of identity and independence.
