Win Tickets ($70): X The Band @ Crystal Ballroom | w/ Elettrodomestico (featuring Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go’s) (November 27)
Three decades after the inception of X, one thing is clear: X was not only one of the most influential bands to crash out of the punk movement of the late ‘ 70s, but the band’ s music continues to be sonically groundbreaking today. Songs written during the group’ s inception are as relevant and inventive today as they were in 1977. To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($40): Celebrating 6 Years of Back Fence PDX: RUSSIAN ROULETTE @ Curious Comedy Theater | Local & Out-of-town Storytellers Telling True, Spur of the Moment, 5-minute Stories (December 6)
About Back Fence PDX: RUSSIAN ROULETTE…How it works: each show begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of our 6 seasoned storytellers will be randomly drawn. To determine the random prompt for their story, they will spin the giant game show wheel. They can play or pass. If they pass another teller can steal their prompt. Then the risky part… each storyteller has only 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story based on that prompt! It’s like we invented a new game called truth AND dare.

Win Tickets ($60): Shakey Graves – The Tour X9 World Tour @ Eugene’s McDonald Theatre | Blues, Folk, Rock & Roll (December 7)
Back in December 2017, Shakey Graves proclaimed on his Twitter page, “Next album. New sound. Sell your suspenders.” The tweet was tongue-in-cheek, but Alejandro Rose-Garcia, the Austin native who’s been plying his trade as Shakey Graves since 2007, was making a dead-serious point about his latest album, Can’t Wake Up (Dualtone, out May 4).
