Win Tickets ($50): Ben Rector & Gavin James @ Revolution Hall | Pop Rock, Singer/Songwriter (March 11)
Filled with rich string arrangements, percussion, pounding piano chords and effortless melodies, Brand New sounds anthemic. At the same time, its message is both sincere and humble, anchored by songs that are honest and meaningful. It’s pop music with a purpose. To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets: M.O.D. Club PDX featuring The Cool Whips, Original Middle Age Ska Enjoy Club @ Secret Society | Pop, Garage Pop
The Cool Whips philosophy is fun and exploring different ways to have that fun. The group is what Shakespeare might have called “a power pop quartet” if he’d been born in this time and listened to this sort of music. The foursome (guitarist Eric Ramon, bassist Susan Kearns, organist David Ricardo and drummer Kurt Steinke) plays a retro 60s style that’s still up to date. What else could it be? It’s being played today so it must be modern. It’s the Now Sound! To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($20): McTuff featuring Dan Balmer w/ Boys II Gentlemen @ The Goodfoot | B-3 Organ, Party Funk (March 12)
Seattle’s monster of the B-3 organ, Joe Doria, returns with instrumental funk behemoth, McTuff, for an evening of dance and drink. Tonight they have PDX guitar virtuoso, Dan Balmer, in tow…so that kinda ups the wow factor a whole lot. Kicking off the night is the irreverent party funk of B2G, made up of members of Quick and Easy Boys and Excellent Gentlemen. To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($36): The Brothers Comatose @ Revolution Hall | Americana, Folk, Bluegrass (March 12)
Their fans keep time with chopsticks, bounce around an inflated alligator, and shout the words to ‘The Scout’. The band shimmies to the stage floor in rhythm, brings out a friend to sing ‘White Rabbit’, and generally creates joyous mayhem. The Brothers Comatose, from San Francisco, are tearing up the West and moving out nationally in rapid style. To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($60): Umphrey’s McGee @ Crystal Ballroom | w/ Tauk, Rock, Instrumental Rock Fusion (March 13)
The original Umphrey’s McGee played a mix of originals and cover songs, waiting just eight months to release their debut album, the cheekily titled Greatest Hits Volume III. Their initial “proper” recording, Local Band Does OK, came out in 2002, followed shortly afterward by an appearance at the first-ever Bonnaroo in Tennessee, selling more albums than any other band on the bill. The 2007 double album, Live at the Murat, earned a four-star review in Rolling Stone and a Jammy for Best Live Album. To win, comment on this post here.
