Win Tickets ($36): A Walking Tour of Portland’s Sinful Past: Shanghaiers, Saloons and Skullduggery | Downtown Portland (August 12)
As a nexus for labor and shipping in the Pacific Northwest, Portland often had the repute of a rugged, rough and tumble town, more than willing to allow the miners, loggers, and fishermen an opportunity to part with their hard earned cash in whatever debaucherous manner they chose. In addition to the shanghaiers and con men, always on the prowl, saloons, gambling halls and bordellos also thrived in “Whitechapel,” “The North End,” or Old Town, as we know it today.

Win Tickets ($60): The Selecter @ Aladdin Theater | Ska/2-Tone, w/ The Grand Yoni of the IMPACT! Sound (August 14)
Whenever successful bands from the past reform they invariably start trading in nostalgia and become “heritage” acts. No one expects them to grow artistically or continue to excel at the same things that brought them popularity in the first place, but that’s what The Selecter have done in the past few years. They’ve played at major festivals, headlined 3 UK tours and recorded three studio albums, the latest of which, Subculture, is mixed by UK dub-master Prince Fatty. Legendary 2-Tone artists, The Selecter, released their new studio album SUBCULTURE to critical acclaim in June last year on DMF Records. To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($60): Reckless Kelly @ Crystal Ballroom | w/ Cascade Crescendo, Roots Rocks, Americana, Country (August 15)
Understanding the virtuosity of Reckless Kelly requires the perspective of where the band has been. Cody and Willy Braun grew up in the White Cloud Mountains of Idaho. They moved to Bend, Oregon, and then migrated to that great musical fountainhead, Austin, Texas. 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)

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.
