A fixture on the Southern CA music scene for over 15 years, Led Zepagain is the West Coast’s most popular & beloved Led Zeppelin tribute act. When Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page caught their show in 2004, those years of hard work paid off, as Jimmy was hugely impressed, requesting to meet the band, posing for pictures, and remarking, “It’s amazing how much you sound like us…You must have grown up on this because you were inside the music, and you paid attention to detail in your presentation…I can tell you guys really love the music!” 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 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.
