Win Tickets: McTuff @ The Goodfoot | Joe Doria on the Hammond Organ, Fine Funky Soul Jazz (July 1)

Win Tickets ($59): Oregon Zoo Summer Concerts Presents Grammy Winner Aimee Mann, Rhiannon Giddens | Rock, Folk, Country, New Wave, Bluegrass, Jazz (July 16)
Aimee Mann’s Mental Illness, her first album in five years, will be released on March 31 via her own SuperEgo Records. The record follows 2012’s Charmer, which Rolling Stone proclaimed “shows off the more pop-oriented side to her usual acoustic tendencies.” With this follow-up, she returns to a more musically soft-spoken but still lyrically barbed approach, as heard in the album’s lead single, “Goose Snow Cone.” To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($90): Oregon Zoo Summer Concerts Presents Brandi Carlile | Alternative Country & Folk Rock (July 29-30)
“Everyone needs to be risking something,” says Seattle-based singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile. She’s discussing the M.O. behind The Firewatcher’s Daughter, her stunning new release – her first for artist-friendly indie label ATO. The 12-song collection marks a triumphant return after a three-year recording hiatus, and her strongest, most rock & roll album to date. To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($60): Oregon Zoo Outdoor Summer Concerts Presents Blind Pilot | w/ Gregory Alan Isakov (August 12)
“The past isn’t finished with us yet. Love can be like that, too. A couple of years ago I found love in different forms leaving my life at once. In a single month I lost my closest group of friends, my 13-year relationship ended, and my dad was diagnosed with cancer. I had just stopped touring to write the next Blind Pilot album, but instead I was watching each of my plans unthread as a new season pulled forward relentlessly. To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($95): Oregon Zoo Outdoor Summer Concerts Presents Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo / Rick Springfield (August 16)
Pat Benatar: she’s always been a rule-breaker and a trail-blazer, she remains a bold and distinctive artist both on stage and on record, and now, after more than three decades in rock ‘n’ roll, she’s a bonafide living legend. To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($70): Oregon Zoo Summer Concerts Presents KALEO – Express Tour 2017 | Indie Rock, Folk, Garage Punk (September 1)
Every story has two sides, and that adage is certainly true for Kaleo, the four-piece band from Iceland who now call the US home. Call it a split upbringing: the isolated heritage that results from coming of age in Iceland has paired with the fresh inspiration of moving to America, and the band has built a sound to match the disparate landscapes. A gorgeous and raucous blend of rock, folk and blues, Kaleo’s debut LP embodies that very spirit of duality: titled A/B, the album showcases the band’s multi-layered dynamics and ability to play different genres with equal skill.

Win Tickets ($60): Oregon Zoo Outdoor Summer Concerts Presents Conor Oberst with special guest M. Ward (September 3)
Conor Oberst joined his first band at the age of 13 and has been releasing music since 1993. Over the next two plus decades, he’s released cassette-only recordings, split 7-inches, and a dozen albums of uncommon insight, detail, and political awareness with his band Bright Eyes, under his own name, as a member of Desaparecidos, as leader of the The Mystic Valley Band, and with the Monsters of Folk supergroup.

Win Tickets ($60): Oregon Zoo Outdoor Summer Concerts Presents Mac DeMarco | w/ The Garden, Rock & Roll (September 9)
Before you ancients out there turn your heads and scoff at the premise of a twenty-something rock-and-roll goofball calling himself an old-anything, consider this: said perpetrator, he who answers to the name Mac DeMarco, has spent the better part of his time thus far writing, recording, and releasing an album of his own music pretty much every calendar flip, and pretty much on his own.
