Win Tickets ($40): The Old Church Presents An Evening with Steve Poltz | Canadian Pop Rock / Indie Rock (June 10)
He was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia (Canada) but has lived most of his life in Southern California and those geographic poles are quite likely responsible for his unhinged genius. He is a dual citizen – Canada/USA – but has often said that, “should a hostage situation arise, I become conveniently Canadian.” To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($130): Tony Starlight’s AM Gold Seventies Soft Rock Show | Featuring a Special 75th Birthday Tribute to Barry Manilow (June 15)
The first set will be a tribute to great Barry Manilow. Sure, I jokingly call him “Barely Man-enough” on occasion, but that’s only because he wrote a song called “I Made It Through The Rain.” To people in Oregon, that’s nothing to brag about. Luckily, he wrote and sang a number of other classics. Songs like “Copacabana”, “Mandy”, “Weekend in New England”, “Could It Be Magic?”, “Somewhere In The Night”, “Bandstand Boogie”, “I Write The Songs” and more… To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($70): Violent Femmes @ Oregon Zoo | Folk-Punk-Improv, w/ Marcia Mello (June 16)
Violent Femmes’ ninth studio album and first full-length collection in more than 15 years, WE CAN DO ANYTHING may well be part of a long musical continuum but it is also among the most provocative and playful in the legendary band’s remarkable canon. As the title makes plain, founding Femmes Gano (vocals, guitar, banjo) and Brian Ritchie (acoustic bass guitar, vocals) remain intrepid as ever before, traversing infinite genre and emotion via their immediately identifiable mash of rambunctious folk, minimalist punk, cubist blues, cosmic jazz, and back porch rock ‘n’ roll.

Win Tickets ($70): John Butler Trio Crystal Ballroom | Rock, w/ Mama Kin (June 21-22)
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.

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.
Win Tickets ($60): Trampled by Turtles @ Oregon Zoo | w/ Deer Tick, Bluegrass/folk-rock (June 25)
Progressive bluegrass band Trampled by Turtles are from Duluth, Minnesota, where frontman Dave Simonett initially formed the group as a side project in 2003. At the time, Simonett had lost most of his music gear, thanks to a group of enterprising car thieves who’d ransacked his vehicle while he played a show with his previous band. Left with nothing more than an acoustic guitar, he began piecing together a new band, this time taking inspiration from bluegrass, folk, and other genres that didn’t rely on amplification.

The band’s first song, “Girls Your Age” popped online in the summer of 2015 announcing Transviolet’s arrival. “Girls Your Age” gained instant online traction with Sarah’s voice at once recalling the Lana, Lorde, Karen O and Imogen Heap: sultry, measured, assured.
