Win Tickets ($30): Kevin Morby @ Aladdin Theater | Alternative, Singer/Songwriter, w/ Shannon Lay (August 22)

City Music is a quiet afternoon moment on a bench in Baltimore, a highway in Seattle at night where the distant houses look like tiny flames and a bottle of red wine being drained on a bridge in Paris. City Music is a bus pulling into St. Louis at dawn where the arch looks like a metal rainbow reflecting the days early sunlight. 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)
