Win Tickets ($60): The Alarm @ Aladdin Theater | Rock, Punk, Acoustic (August 9)
With idealistic spirit, a powerhouse live show, and bigger than big hair, the Alarm were part of an early-’80s wave of bands (the Call, Big Country, and the Waterboys among them) who dealt in soaring anthems inspired by the righteous idealism of punk. Clearly influenced by the impassioned political fervor of the Clash, the Alarm also worked in a mostly acoustic, folk-punk vein that provided a counterpoint to their hard-driving guitar rockers. 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)
