Win Tickets ($36): Back Fence PDX ‘Russian Roulette’ @ Disjecta | True Unscripted Stories, Emmy-nominated Director Arthur Bradford (July 20)
Russian Roulette begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of the 8 storytellers will be randomly drawn. They spin the giant Bunk Bar WHEEL to decide the prompt for their story. 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. To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($40): Candlebox – 20th Anniversary Tour @ Crystal Ballroom | Alternative Rock, Grunge (July 21)
Love Stories & Other Musings, the fifth studio album from Candlebox (released April 3 on AudioNest/Fontana/Universal), evidences a newfound level of maturity for the band, formed in 1991 in Seattle. At the same time, listening to it with the volume knob cranked up emphatically reveals that frontman Kevin Martin, lead guitarist Peter Klett, drummer Scott Mercado, and their bandmates, remain filled with the youthful exuberance that marked their first go-round in the 1990s, a decade during which they ran off a string of alt-rock classics while selling north of 5 million albums.

Win Tickets ($150): Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks: Record Release Party @ Aladdin Theater | American Folk, Country (July 24)
“Dan Hicks is imminently engaging, twisting his signature mishmash of damn near every musical style known to man into songs that feel supremely natural…Add to that Hicks’ penchant for writing lyrics filled with a dry wit reminiscent of Garrison Keillor and Frank Zappa, and you’ve got something very strange – very strange and very wonderful.” – Seattle Weekly To win, comment on this post here.
