Win Tickets: DJ Logic, Klozd Sirkut @ The Goodfoot | Funk, Jazz, Hip hop, Rock, Soul & World Beats (February 22)
The theorem of turntablist as musician has been long proven in the capable hands of DJ Logic, whom with jazz as his foundation has become a wax innovator by crossing genres and mixing his sound across the map. As one of the world’s most accomplished turntablist’s, DJ Logic is widely credited for introducing jazz into the hip hop realms and is considered by most as a highly respected session musician and an innovative bandleader.

Win Tickets ($60): Typhoon @ Crystal Ballroom | Post Pop, Indie Rock (February 23)
If a Fellini film, a Bosch painting, and a Rorschach drawing had a collective sound, it would be Typhoon’s new release. The 14-track record Offerings is a musical and lyrical excursion into surreal imagery, eerie soundscapes, and an emotionally jarring narrative. To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($20): Goodfoot 17-year Anniversary Show | w/ McTuff, Funk, Soul, Jazz, Psychedelia (February 24)
After 17 long and wonderful years of music we thought we’d celebrate by inviting our favorite funky organ trio down from Seattle for a little dance party. McTuff, led by B-3 burner Joe Doria, combine master musicianship with an Earth rumbling groove as they tear through jazz, funk, soul and psychedelia. Come to our birthday party– no presents necessary! To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($40): Bully @ Aladdin Theater | Rock, w/ Melkbelly (February 25)
Bully burst onto the scene in 2015 with their critically acclaimed album Feels Like. Today the band announces Losing. The album was engineered and mixed by lead-singer Alicia Bognanno in Chicago at Electrical Audio. To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($40): WHY? @ Revolution Hall | Alternative Rock, Indie, Alt Hip Hop (February 23)
The final words sung on the sixth album by WHY? are an apt place to begin: “Hold on, what’s going on?” Because while there’s much familiar about the oddly named Moh Lhean—mastermind Yoni Wolf’s sour-sweet croon, his deadpan poet’s drawl and ear for stunningly fluid psych-pop-folk-whatever arrangement—a great deal has changed in the four years that’ve passed since 2012’s Mumps, Etc., an LP that honed the band’s orchestral precision and self-deprecating swagger to a fine point.

Win Tickets ($50): The Wood Brothers @ Crystal Ballroom | Americana, Folk Rock, Rock, w/ The Mastersons
In a career chock full of highlights, The Wood Brothers hold a special place in their hearts for their performances at Levon Helm’s legendary Midnight Ramble. As repeat special guests at Helm’s famed Woodstock barn, the trio—guitarist Oliver Wood, bassist Chris Wood, and drummer Jano Rix— developed a cherished friendship with the late icon that transcended simple musical collaboration and left an indelible mark on their songs and their lives.

Win Tickets ($44): Pimps of Joytime @ Revolution Hall | Funk, Soul, Dance, Pop (March 2)
Anyone familiar with the Pimps of Joytime live experience knows the feeling—it’s that moment when a deep bluesy groove morphs into a full-on EDM dance beat, or the sensation when the wide-eyed audience collectively elevates in sync with the band’s tangible energy. To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($30): The Academic @ Mission Theater | Indie Rock Group From Ireland (March 3)
Nothing will ever feel as free as the first time you hit the recording studio to lay down your own music, a rush that Irish foursome The Academic channeled perfectly on their 2015 debut EP ‘Loose Friends’. The joyful intensity of those early songs was all ripped jeans and carefree nights, as the band sang about youthful passion with optimistic fervor and a cheeky wink.

Win Tickets ($70): Squirrel Nut Zippers @ Aladdin Theater | American Jazz, Swing Revival (March 11)
2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the Squirrel Nut Zippers most celebrated and commercially successful album Hot. Originally released in the summer of 1996, Hot was the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed debut The Inevitable. By this time the group had already established a substantial live following across the country thanks to early support from NPR, college radio and non-commercial stations. Hot wound up selling over 1.3 million copies. To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($66): Baker’s Dozen Coffee-Beer & Doughnut Fest @ Ecliptic Brewing | 13 Coffee Beers, 13 Doughnut Makers (March 11)
The 4th Annual Baker’s Dozen is Portland’s, and the world’s, only coffee beer and doughnut festival. It features three things Portland does best: beer, coffee, and doughnuts. Portland is home to several dozen craft breweries and independent roasters so the marriage of the two made in hoppy, caffeinated heaven. Those results then pair hedonistically with doughnuts. Mix’n’match; no single coffee beer is designed to complement any particular doughnut. Last year the event sold out in advance and tickets are limited to 500 (to ensure attendees can sample everything). To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($80): Grammy Winner Jonathan Davis @ Crystal Ballroom | Korn Frontman (April 6)
Music heightens the senses, conjures catharsis, and unlocks other levels of consciousness. Just ask Korn frontman Jonathan Davis. Throughout his storied career, he’s unleashed his demons night after night on stage, sharing an escape with audiences of millions. However, Davis does something that he’s never done before on his 2018 solo debut. To win, comment on this post here.
