Win Tickets ($36): A Walking Tour of Portland’s Sinful Past: Shanghaiers, Saloons and Skullduggery | Downtown Portland (September 16)
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. Some of these storied establishments have come and gone, but others have survived, and many say that Portland, or “Strip City,” still has that vulgar and rugged reputation to this day.

Win Tickets ($35): Manchester Orchestra @ Crystal Ballroom | w/ Tigers Jaw & Foxing (September 18)
“Cope, to me, means getting by. It means letting go, and being OK with being OK,” says Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull. “You can cope in a positive way when bad things happen or a negative way, and that blend was a big lyrical theme for me on this album.” To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($40): Martha Wainwright @ Aladdin Theater | Singer Songwriter, Folk, Pop (September 20)
With an undeniable voice and an arsenal of powerful songs, Martha Wainwright is a beguiling performer and a refreshingly different force in music. Martha began building a buzz with her well-noted EPs, prior to her 2005 critically and commercially successful debut LP, ‘Martha Wainwright’. London’s Sunday Times included the song, “Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole” in their songs of the year and Rolling Stone called it “a blistering prelude to her debut album.” To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($28): LVL UP, Dude York, & Cende @ Star Theater | Lo-fi, Indie Rock, Emo (September 21)
Hidden Driver,, the opening track of LVL UP’s third album and Sub Pop debut Return to Love, never stops moving. What starts with unassuming guitars and vocals adds new lines, depths, and intensity, until its unrestrained, triumphant finish. God is peeking, softly speaking, repeats the chorus, working through the relationship between spirituality and creative inspiration, and introducing a band that is always pushing further.

Win Tickets ($70): Greg Brown @ Aladdin Theater | Guitar, Folk, Singer-songwriter (September 22)
Greg Brown was born in the Hacklebarney section of southeastern Iowa and raised by a family that made words and music a way of life.

Win Tickets ($70): Ride @ Crystal Ballroom | w/ Lo Moon, British Rock, Shoegazing (September 23)
Waving farewell to the Eighties: it was biggest pop kick there’d been in, ooh, ten years. During that godforsaken, musically atrocious decade, it was them and us. We hadn’t got a prayer. Our stuff didn’t register in corporate demographic terms, it was too vague and indefinable. And it didn’t register in the charts. There would be the occasional triumph, as the The Smiths, the Bunnymen or the Mary Chain made a lightning raid on the Top 20, only to limp back to obscurity the following week.

Win Tickets ($50): Thee Oh Sees @ Crystal Ballroom | w/ dreamdecay, Garage Rock, Punk (September 25)
Thee Oh Sees are the latest incarnation of songwriter, singer, guitarist (and Castle Face fearless leader) John Dwyer’s ever-evolving pop-folk psychedelic group. Dwyer, who hails from Providence, R.I., has been active on the San Francisco indie scene since the late ’90s, working with several bands, including the Coachwhips, Pink & Brown, Yikes, Up Its Alive, and Swords & Sandals, among others, and he formed OCS (which is an acronym for Orinoka Crash Suite, Orange County Sound, or whatever Dwyer decided it was on any given day) initially as a vehicle for the experimental instrumentals he was producing in his home studio.
