Win Tickets ($50): Hayes Carll @ Aladdin Theater | Singer / Songwriter, Country, Folk (July 15)
It’s been a while since my last album by some measurements of time. Not “history of the universe time”, or “getting a bill through congress time”, but in the lives of dogs and recording artists, five years and fifty-three days is only a little less than an eternity.

Win Tickets ($60): Tony Joe White Miller & Sasser @ Mission Theater | Swamp Rock (July 15)
“I’ve had unbelievable, beautiful freedom with the music for the last several years…” reflects Tony Joe White as a grainy dusk settles. Just entering his seventh decade, White spends his days off the road coaxing inspiration from his surroundings. Not one to write songs on command, they seem to find him-usually when he’s out on his property, a quiet couple of riverside acres some forty miles or so outside of Nashville. “All I can hear from where I sit,” he notes, “are coyotes, birds, or wolves.” To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($32): Sam Outlaw @ Lola’s Room | w/ The Lonesomes, Reverend Barron, Country w/ a Southern California Spirit (July 19)
These lines from the title track of Sam Outlaw’s debut album Angeleno could almost serve as a haiku-like artist bio. Outlaw is a southern Californian singer-songwriter steeped in the music and mythos of west coast country, absorbing the classic vibes of everything from ’60s Bakersfield honky-tonk to ’70s Laurel Canyon troubadour pop and refashioning them into a sound that’s pleasurably past, present and future tense. To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($70): The Jayhawks @ Revolution Hall | w/ Fernando, Country Rock, Alternative (July 20)
The incredible harmonies and distinctive arrangements of The Jayhawks set them apart from the rest of the Minneapolis music scene that emerged in the 1980s. By the early 90’s they became a driving force and inspiration behind the growing Americana movement. Combining the talents of singer-songwriters Gary Louris and Mark Olson, The Jayhawks released their major label debut, the acclaimed Hollywood Town Hall (1992) on the Def American label. This was followed by Tomorrow the Green Grass (1995), which produced the alternative radio hit single “Blue”. To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($84): Toad The Wet Sprocket @ Revolution Hall | Rock, w/ Rusted Root (July 21)
When Monty Python’s Eric Idle created the fictional band “Toad the Wet Sprocket” for the program “Rutland Weekend Television” in 1975, he never dreamed that anyone would actually use such a silly name. Fast forward to 1986, when four California teens desperately needed to come up with a name to call their band for an upcoming gig at a Goleta, CA watering hole called The Shack.

They infuse punk rock with Celtic instruments—violin, mandolin and the accordion—and they merge blues progressions with grinding guitars and traditional Irish music, the music of King’s youth.

Ben Schneider conjured Lord Huron from the depths of Lake Huron during a trip to his family home in northern Michigan in 2010.

Ben brought Lord Huron back with him to Los Angeles, where strange young things are known to flourish, unhindered. 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.
