G. Love is a genre-bending pioneer with a sound The New York Times described as "a new and urgent hybrid" and NPR called a "musical melting pot." He has a magnetic stage presence, and artfully balances his appreciation for the simple joys in life with his obligation to speak out for justice and equality. His performances are suitably riotous and rousing to match, with infectious call-and-response hooks and funky sing-along choruses at every turn. Get your tickets now or enter to win here!
Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, Fri March 17, 9 pm, $30-$45, all ages
Enter to win an experience you'll never forget: HUMP! is a one-of-a-kind festival of short, dirty films curated by the filthiest of them all, Dan Savage.

HUMP! 2023 will be at Revolution Hall March 3-11 and feature ALL NEW FILMS. So get your tickets now or enter to win here!
