PDX Pipeline T-shirts

Get Your Pipeline T-Shirts Right here

If you want one, donate $12 or more to the Pipeline cause on Paypal. We use this money to pay for tickets and drinks, expensive new email system for our ticket giveaways, plus other stuff to expand our coverage and web backend (TWSS). I don't really know what we'll spend your donation $$ on, but we are going to enjoy it. :)


Every week, Pipeline gives away many tickets to great shows all around Portland (and sometimes outside of Portland). We usually reserve many/most of these for friends of ours on Facebook & in our Email list.

For a month, we are showing everyone the tickets we are giving away and anyone can enter to win. However, you will need to join our email list here (ideal) or be a member of our Facebook Group to see these deals in the following weeks.

    Rose City Rollers tickets? Hell yeah! The best sporting event since gladiator games and chariot races in the coliseum. Better looking warriors though.

    Please Please Please Pick me for MOS DEF Tickets!! I want to win these tickets for my boyfriend & I. He loves Mos Def and I’d be the best girlfriend if I got us tickets!
    Help me be the best girlfriend with free tickets!!

    Two things I love: Pete Yorn and free things. It’s also my sister’s birthday on the 23rd, and it’d be a treat to take her! Crossing my fingers now. ;)

    Mos Def would be AMAZING and a great way to ring in my 30th birthday early (it’s on 9/11). I always hate celebrating it on the actual date since most people are in mourning. If we got these it would be a gift I don’t think my husband could top and a birthday I could never forget!

    Rose City Roller’s.

    Sounds exciting!
    more exciting with free beer! ; – )

    Oh man, I loves me some LiveWire real good. The guy who’s curing Cancer AND the gal from Reno 911 this month?? I would LOVE to go…

    And of course, like all these smart people, I’d really love to go to the Derrrrby and watch some ladies lay a smack down.

    Thanks so much Julian!

    I would love to see Live Wire tomorrow night! I could take my boyfriend, have some laughs, get him all liquored up with some beer, and maybe even get lucky when we get home! Come on, I need those tickets, pleaseee!

    I have never been to a Rose City Rollers match, but would LOVE to go experience it. I hear it’s amazing and most importantly shows how bad-ass women are! I love beer too, and am super excited about being VIP for a night! =)
