Win Tickets ($50): Buzzcocks @ Revolution Hall | Punk Rock, w/ Residuels (May 23)
If impact and influence are true measures of a band’s lasting greatness, Manchester’s legendary Buzzcocks should already be in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. Three bands from the now mythical 1976/77 British punk explosion set the benchmarks for everything that was to follow – Sex Pistols, the Clash and Buzzcocks. Practically inventing the independent record scene with their seminal self-financed EP Spiral Scratch, Buzzcocks instantly forged a unique relationship with their public.

Released later that year, his self-titled major label debut album sold 1.5 million copies, and though the follow-up, 2011’s This Loud Morning, debuted in the Top 10, he wound up as an indie artist once again.

Win Tickets ($40): Saint Motel + Phases @ Crystal Ballroom | Indie Pop Band, Dream Pop, Indie Prog, Nu Disco (May 28)
As heard on Saint Motel’s breakout single “My Type,” that thirst for joyful eclecticism gets channeled into a retro-futuristic brand of pop that’s big on bright melodies, shiny hooks, loungey rhythms, and clever yet candid lyrics. The title track from Saint Motel’s most recent EP (released in the US by Elektra earlier this year), “My Type” went top 10 at Alternative radio while Entertainment Weekly heralded it as a contender for “song of the summer.” To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($44): Jake Bugg @ Oregon Zoo Summer Concerts | Indie Rock, Folk, Rock (September 9)
In Jake Bugg’s hometown of Nottingham it’s a habit of speech not to say “on my own” but “on my one.” “As in, ‘Whadya leave me on my one for?’” explains Bugg. “It’s just something we say in Notts. But in a lot of ways it sums up this record because it mainly has been just me on my own. The first album where I’ve written everything myself, and produced a lot of it myself. There are a few tracks with other musicians but most of it is just me playing all the instruments, including bass and drums. A proper one man band. So it’s been a very solitary process.” To win, comment on this post here.
