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.
Win Tickets ($90): Joe Walsh, JD & The Straight Shot @ 2016 Oregon Zoo Summer Concerts | Guitarist for The Eagles (September 11)

By then Joe’s fans already included guitar icons Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page. “I don’t listen to many records,” Clapton said, “but I listen to his.” Page talked of Joe’s “tremendous feel” for the guitar, adding, “I’ve loved his style since the early James Gang.” To win, comment on this post here.
