Pipeline is once again giving away many Portland event tickets this weekend including MarchFourth, James Hunter, Kathy Griffin & more!
Win Tickets: Lost Ox @ The Goodfoot | FREE, Part Whiskey Blues Soul Grass, Two Parts Neo-funk Groove (May 17)
Formed in early 2017, and quickly gaining traction around Portland, Lost Ox is part rapidfire rambling lyrics, part whiskey blues soul grass, two parts neo-funk groove; all with an extra helping of electro-psychedelic heat. The prog-blues-folk quartet bring their own brand of inventive playfulness to performances; weaving dark, murderous yarns in the same stride as delightfully groovy jive numbers, saturated richly with improvisation and interplay.

Win Tickets ($50): The Brian Jonestown Massacre @ Crystal Ballroom | w/ Cat Hoch, Rock & Roll (May 22)
Named in tribute to the legendary Rolling Stones guitarist and his influence in introducing Eastern culture and music into the world of Western rock & roll, the Brian Jonestown Massacre formed in San Francisco, CA, in 1990. Some 40 different members passed through the group’s ranks over the next half-decade, but their focal point always remained singer/guitarist Anton Newcombe, who along with bassist Matt Hollywood, guitarist Dean Taylor, organist Mara Regal, accordionist Dawn Thomas, drummer Brian Glaze, and “Spokesperson for the Revolution” Joel Gion, recorded the Massacre’s 1995 shoegazer-influenced debut LP, ‘Methodrone.’ To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($50): Hal Ketchum, Clarence Bucaro @ Mission Theater | Chart Topping Country Artist (May 25)
Five years ago, Hal Ketchum packed up his guitars and left Nashville, turning his back on a successful, 20+ year career in country music. He’d already sold more than 5 million albums, racking up a half-dozen Top 10 hits – including staples like “Small Town Saturday Night” and “Hearts Are Gonna Roll” – along the way. But Ketchum was exhausted, and his multiple sclerosis, a condition that often left him partially paralyzed, wasn’t making matters any easier. He wanted to go home. And that’s exactly what the singer/songwriter did, heading back to Texas for some peace, quiet, and serious introversion. To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($70): John Butler Trio Crystal Ballroom | Rock, w/ Mama Kin (June 21)
The contradictions in John Butler are evident, and, despite his magnificently successful career (with number one albums in Australia and sell-out tours) his is a troubled soul. One of the most successful recording artists Australia has ever produced and a musician whose reputation has begun to rock the waters of both Europe and America, Butler is nevertheless a man on the edge, poised like a beautiful suicide. Where will he go next? Up or down? Despite the tensions within the man and his music the new album makes his future trajectory abundantly clear. To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($44): Summerland Tour – Featuring Everclear, Marcy Playground, Local H @ Crystal Ballroom | 90s Alt Rock (June 24)
Considering Everclear has written and recorded some truly iconic ’90s alt-rock hits, it would be all too easy these days for the band to be a victim of its past successes, relegated to performing as a glorified jukebox, existing to satisfy the nostalgic cravings of Gen Xers everywhere. But singer-guitarist Art Alexakis isn’t about to start phoning it in now. To win, comment on this post here.
