Win Tickets ($20): Mike Dillon Band, Zony Mash @ The Goodfoot | Jazz Vibraphone Visionary (August 18)

Whether through his affiliation with artists like Les Claypool, Primus, Rickie Lee Jones, and Ani Difranco, or collaborations such as Nolatet, Garage a Trois, The Dead Kenny G’s, Critters Buggin or bands he has led, including Mike Dillon Band, Mike Dillon’s New Orleans Punk Rock Percussion Consortium, Billy Goat and Hairy Apes BMX, the Texas-native has set his own standard for 25 years now.

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 ($40): Funhouse Lounge Presents Back to the Future, the Musical Parody! | Featuring 14 Original Songs (August 30-September 29)
Return with us to Hill Valley to find out how things really unfolded on that fateful week back in 1955 when Marty McFly accidentally prevented his parents’ first meeting, thus threatening his own existence! To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($49): Happy Hour @ The Zoo: Party for Aquatic Animals! | Meet the Keepers, Lawn Games, Photo Ops, Drinks (September 5)
Having cocktails at the zoo isn’t just fun, it helps raise awareness and support for the zoo’s mission of creating a better future for wildlife. Visitors who are 21+ can enjoy a zoo experience with a date, friends or family at an adults-only event. To win, comment on this post here.

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.
Win Tickets ($62): Angel Olsen @ Newmark Theatre | Singer/Songwriter, Indie Folk, Rock, Alt Country (September 12-13)
