    I would love to win tickets! DJ Anjali and the Incredible Kid are my favorite djs to dance to. I spent New Year’s Eve dancing to them a couple years ago and want to end this year with them!

  8. ccc December 22, 2016 at 10:46 pm #

    what better way to bring in the new year but brown & loud?

  9. Amy December 23, 2016 at 12:35 am #

    Yes please! I can’t think of a better place to spend my NYE. I’ve been living away from Portland for a couple months and spaces like this is why I appreciate this city so much!

  10. Jessie December 23, 2016 at 2:39 am #

    Wow! What’s this gonna be like!?! Sounds interesting and a fun way to bring in the new year.

  13. David December 25, 2016 at 8:39 am #

    This is the first New Year’s Eve that I’ll get to spend in the same city as my partner. We love DJ Anjali and it’s basically the only music that has ever made my semi-shy self actually want to dance. Going to this New Year’s party would be the best way for us to ring in 2017 together in the most fun way possible.

  14. Scott Pierce December 25, 2016 at 5:13 pm #

    New Years fun.

  15. Vero December 25, 2016 at 9:47 pm #

    Porque necesito musica buena!!!!

  16. Juan Martinez December 25, 2016 at 10:10 pm #

    This would be a fun New Years Eve party to take my wife to. I haven’t been to this music in years.

  17. John Barzelay December 26, 2016 at 10:18 am #

    I want to get down and bring my lady with me.

  18. Bryan December 26, 2016 at 3:11 pm #

    My sweetie and I are reunited Dec 30 after 4 months apart and I would love to take her to this! She’s Punjabi and loves DJ Anjali!

  19. Felecia December 27, 2016 at 10:15 am #

    I need to shake my bon bon!

  20. Conrad December 27, 2016 at 10:22 am #

    Nothing like dancing the New Year in! My girlfriend will be in town and would love to be able to take her!!

  21. Keenan Recker December 27, 2016 at 11:50 am #

    Honestly, these two are the best DJ Duo I have ever heard. Ever. Last time I heard them was at goodfoot and the sound kept cutting out, totally massacring my vibe. I want these tickets to redeem that past experience and revive my vibe for 2017!!

    • The Incredible Kid December 28, 2016 at 4:01 pm #

      Keenan, so sorry to hear about your experience at the last Tropitaal you attended. The Goodfoot had just gotten a new piece of equipment which ended up being defective. We’ve played there since and everything worked fine. Email me, I want to make it up to you:

  22. Rae December 27, 2016 at 1:04 pm #

    A few friends coming to town that can’t swing the price tag but would love to come! Would be a NYE miracle :)

  23. Monica December 27, 2016 at 1:15 pm #

    happy anniversary Anjali and Incredible Kid! We love Orquestra Pacifico Tropical too.

  24. Yuri December 27, 2016 at 1:31 pm #

    Definitely want!!!!

  25. Schlomo Rabinowitz December 27, 2016 at 3:32 pm #

    This will definitely be the place to dance in the new year!

  26. Amanda Switzer December 27, 2016 at 4:10 pm #

    I need a good party for my date!

  27. Shane December 27, 2016 at 4:52 pm #

    Visiting Portland for NYE would love to attend this party to ring in 2017!

  28. Christian December 27, 2016 at 5:33 pm #

    My wife has been sick since Christmas Day and it would be amazing to finally get out of our house and celebrate the new year in style, fun and health! Goodbye 2016! Hello 2017!

  29. Carina December 27, 2016 at 6:28 pm #

  40. Marc C Sandoz December 29, 2016 at 9:42 am #

    I have never seen DJ Anjali before even though having been interested in Bollywood music for the last year so this sounds like a great way to spend NYE!

  41. Ben December 29, 2016 at 10:23 am #

    Orchestra Pacifico Tropical introduced me to cumbia music when they first came into the local music scene; I’ve fallen in love with the genre since. I’d be thrilled to spend New Years Eve dancing to their music, ¡viva la cumbia!

  42. Ellisha December 29, 2016 at 11:06 am #

    Yes Please! I have seen them like 8 years ago and it would be fantastic to celebrate the NYE with my man. I never celebrated NYE with a man. Please help me make it happen! :-)

  43. Peter December 29, 2016 at 11:39 am #

    Thank you pdx pipeline for offering an opportunity to win tix! I would love to take my lady lover so we can dance to OPT and the djs and visit with friends. Tickets are expensive for our budgets but we’d love to go!!! I’ll be driving 18 hours in the next 2 days to come celebrate NYE with her and I wanna take her out somewhere special! happy new year!

  44. Rebecca fund December 29, 2016 at 11:46 am #

  45. Rhiannon W December 29, 2016 at 1:49 pm #

    I need to shake off 2016 and bring 2017 in on the right notes… and this party is the way to do it!! Every moment dancing with DJ Anjali & The Incredible Kid leaves me smiling and steeped in positive vibes!

  62. Sashiko Yuen December 30, 2016 at 12:02 am #

    As someone with chronic illness issues, i usually spend 50% of the year in bed. But this year, on top of that, i had an accident. I’m feeling a bit better now, and would love to end it dancing. And take someone special with me.

  63. Andr0ne (andrew olsen) December 30, 2016 at 12:47 pm #

    It’s one of our roommates’ birthday on the 1st. She loves DJ Anjali and it would be a spectacular way to ring in the new year/birthday festivities. Would love to score some tix for some of our friends who are on the fence/haven’t bought tickets yet. This is going to be one fun outing.

  64. david December 30, 2016 at 1:46 pm #

    i’ve a friend from austria who would dig her last nite out in portland spent dancing. yes, please!

  65. Alix Z December 30, 2016 at 2:35 pm #
