Win Tickets: Lost Ox @ The Goodfoot | Part Whiskey Blues Soul Grass, Two Parts Neo-funk Groove (August 9)
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.

For many bands, and especially those who’ve been together for several years, recognizing maturation, progress or palpable evolution is a daunting task.

Win Tickets ($100): Jawbreaker w/ Swearin’, Hurry Up @ Crystal Ballroom | Punk Rock (August 17-18)
Independently minded and adhering to the old-school D.I.Y. punk mentality, West Coast punk-pop trio Jawbreaker’s street-smart — yet poetic — lyrics, spirited musicality, and marathon live shows put them a cut above contemporaries like Green Day and blink-182. After a series of EPs and singles, guitarist/singer Blake Schwarzenbach, bassist Chris Bauermeister, and drummer Adam Pfahler released the band’s debut album, Unfun, in 1989.

Win Tickets ($79): Oregon Zoo Summer Concerts Presents Punch Brothers and Andrew Bird | Progressive Bluegrass, Classical, Acoustic (August 18)
All Ashore, Punch Brothers’ fifth album and the first to be self-produced by the quintet, is both ambitious and easygoing, a lot like the “ridiculously eclectic” combo, as London’s Guardian once called the band. The work has the feel of a nine-song suite, one that invites you to unravel the threads of its connected themes and stories over repeated listening. To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($75): Oregon Zoo Summer Concerts Presents Pink Martini with Special Guest Ari Shapiro | Pop, Classical, Jazz (August 25-26)
Pink Martini is a rollicking around-the-world musical adventure… if the United Nations had a house band in 1962, hopefully we’d be that band. To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($70): Grammy Winner Midge Ure + Paul Young @ Aladdin Theater | 80s UK Rock Icons, Synthpop, New Wave (August 26)
An artist who has received Ivor Novello, Grammy, BASCAP awards along with a flotilla of gold and platinum records, really needs very little introduction. Musical success is seldom measured in time spans of more than a few years, if not Andy Warhol’s often quoted “fifteen minutes”, so the fact that by the time Midge’s single “If I Was” went to No1 in 1985 he had already crammed several musical lifetimes into a 10 year professional career speaks volumes – Slik, The Rich Kids, Thin Lizzy, Visage, Ultravox and of course the most famous one off group in musical history Band Aid had by then all had the guiding hand of his musical navigation.

Win Tickets ($70): Blind Melon @ Crystal Ballroom | American Rock (August 29)
In recent years, the tale of Blind Melon has taken a dramatic turn – from an abrupt and tragic end, to a rebirth and reconnection with their legions of dedicated fans. No matter how you slice it, the group was responsible for some of the most memorable and pure- sounding rock music of the ’90s, and with their reformation in 2007 with singer Travis Warren, Blind Melon have picked up with their fans, exactly where they left off.

Win Tickets ($50): Andrew W.K. @ Revolution Hall | Singer, Songwriter, Motivational Speaker, Punk, Rock (September 7)
As an artist, he seemed to have emerged out of nowhere, fully-formed right out of the box, with an image, a style, and a sense of purpose that set him far apart from his peers. If that seemed to good to be true, then maybe it was. Andrew W.K., the critics opined, was either the savior of music or its biggest fraud. To win, comment on this post here.
