Win Tickets ($36): Back Fence PDX Russian Roulette @ Disjecta | Live storytelling. No lies. No notes. No time. (July 2)
How it works: Russian Roulette begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of the 8 storytellers will be randomly drawn. They spin the wheel to decide the prompt for their story. They can play or pass. If they pass another teller can steal their prompt. Then the risky part…each storyteller has only 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story based on that prompt! It’s like we invented a new game called truth AND dare. 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.
