    I want to go because an aquaintance of mine is in it, and I’d love to help her celebrate a success story of local filmmaking.
    And because I like going to parties.

    I would love to attend. My partner just broke up with me and I need a night out but can’t afford something as “cool” and “awesome” as this. And I LOVE Storm Large!! Thank you!

    Storm Large = Awesome
    Storm Large + Sketch Comedy + Mississippi Studios = Too Marvelous For Words, Just Get me THERE!

    I would love to get these ticket. I have never been to Mississippi Studios ( always good to see a newbee) and I’m a huge supporter of chicks that can ball ;)

  5. Nikki Hansell March 30, 2011 at 3:01 pm #

    STORM LARGE is AMAZING!!!! I love her shows. She alway put on great quality.

  6. angela March 30, 2011 at 4:21 pm #

    I’d like to go because I’m a SL fan – and this is a great venue! C’mon!

    give me the tickets or you will never get rid of me.

    I would like to win tickets to this event because I know several people who worked on this movie, and I would like to show my support for their success. I planned on attending, but after a family member recently passed away, I had to buy a last minute plane ticket to Kansas City, which wiped out my discretionary spending budget.

  9. Shely March 31, 2011 at 10:38 am #

    I have a compulsive need to be wherever Storm Large is…not in a stalker-ish way, but in a medical necessity way. Winning tickets would be like getting a rabies vaccination…or something.

  10. Nicole March 31, 2011 at 2:39 pm #

    I have not a cent to my name, and my girl deserves something great from me for all her love and support, and whats a more amazing way to show how awesome someone is than taking them to a storm large show! c’mon please please please i’m begging you down on my knees!

  11. Todd March 31, 2011 at 3:01 pm #

    these film makers are all amazing, and they deserve to be going to tribeca and to have the support and applause from the film community in portland oregon!! i would love to go just to hang out with such a talented group of wonderful people (oh, and to hear the great music and eat yummy food and to see mississippi studios before i head back to ashland…)

  12. Therese Gietler March 31, 2011 at 3:11 pm #

    This is awesome that you are offering 2 free tickets. It gives hope to the hoards of us that are broke because we put all our money into our indie films. I want to support all the fabulous filmmakers in Portland, I really do. As they have supported me. But Stella ate all my cash!

  13. Amy March 31, 2011 at 3:12 pm #

    I would absolutely love to go to this event and support two of my former classmates. Ms. Leading Lady O’Grady and Mr. Michael Herman from Oracle. I would also score big points with my man, surprising him with a Storm Large performance! Cheers to RID OF ME being a HUGE success!

  14. Jeremy M March 31, 2011 at 3:15 pm #

    I am in desperate need of deeper understanding. Portland is a city with an endless supply of mystery, excitement, and culture and I am just barely scratching the surface of what that is. I yearn to be submersed in it’s greatness, wowed by it’s secrets, and tutored by it’s historic wisdom. All in All.. I appreciate and support everything that this concert represents and would consider it a very flattering honor and privilege to be present at this event!! Go Katie and James..and rock on Storm Large. Promises to be a great night!!

  15. Benjamin Farmer March 31, 2011 at 3:17 pm #

    I’d like to attend because believe in this film, LOVE the cast and crew, and because I’m broke. I know how much heart and soul was poured into this film and I would love to be there to support our local filmmakers as they get ready to head to Tribeca! Thank you. :)

  16. Greg Hamilton March 31, 2011 at 3:32 pm #

    I’d love to go so I could give James and Katie a big “send-off to Tribecca” hug. I also helped break up a fight that happened after an insane house party scene in Rid of Me…so I’m hopin’ that counts for something…

  17. kim March 31, 2011 at 3:35 pm #

    It’d be awesome to support someone I knew as a kid with who’s lucky enough to do something she loves… plus I would love to be able to treat my delicious husband to a fun night out – oh and, that’s my birthday weekend! That’s got to count for something, right?

  18. kristin March 31, 2011 at 3:43 pm #

    i would absolutely love to get the chance to attend this event – it sounds awesome. love the performers and the great cause.

  19. dana r. March 31, 2011 at 3:49 pm #

    I would love to go to this event. great people and great cause. thanks!!

  20. Shay March 31, 2011 at 3:58 pm #

    it’s my neices’ birthday and she so LOVES Storm!

  21. Sandi March 31, 2011 at 4:01 pm #

    I fell in love with Storm Large when I first saw her on television in a singing competition.
    This would definitely be a great night out with my husband.
    We’re always interested in local events that support great causes in our communities.

  22. Jonquil Martinez March 31, 2011 at 4:03 pm #

    I would love to come to this event because I want to support my friends, Oracle. And I love Storm Large, AMAZING! And I can’t wait to see this film. :) Super event for what is to be a fabulous movie.

  23. Shelley A. March 31, 2011 at 4:26 pm #

    What a great idea for a fund raiser: red carpet, comedy and appetizers! Awsome. I’d love to make this a date night event.

  24. Patrick Broadfoot March 31, 2011 at 4:32 pm #

    I am leaving for Florida so I MUST attend this show before I leave the lovely Northwest.

  25. Jeremy Brill March 31, 2011 at 4:42 pm #

    I need to get out of this house

  26. Jason Castro March 31, 2011 at 4:47 pm #

    I love film, parties, and Mississippi Studios!

  27. Per Enfield March 31, 2011 at 5:33 pm #

    Hooray for the Portland film scene! And parties!

  28. Sara March 31, 2011 at 6:16 pm #

    Great event for a fabulous film; winning would be a real treat :)

  29. erin March 31, 2011 at 8:35 pm #

    I would love to check out storm large, heard lots about her but haven’t seen her yet. And only seen 1 show at mississippi studios so need to check out this venue more as well.

  30. pdxRay March 31, 2011 at 9:24 pm #

    Sounds like a blast. Pick me!

  31. Emily March 31, 2011 at 10:51 pm #

    This is going to be a fantastic event! I’d LOVE to be there!

  32. Megan April 1, 2011 at 7:49 am #

    Hello! I would be DELIGHTED to win tickets to this event, because as a fellow actor I would love to be there to support this film. I am so excited that the Portland film community is really starting to show it’s chops, and this is the perfect example of how we can kick A, and take names. The producers, directors, cast and crew of this film are some of the most dedicated artists I know in Portland film; I look up to them, and would love to be there to celebrate such a great achievement.

    Thanks!! :)

    sounds like a grand time!

  34. shobha grace April 1, 2011 at 8:33 am #

    I would love to see storm large ( never have)

  35. Tara Dublin April 1, 2011 at 10:03 am #

    I’d love to go because so many of my friends have worked so hard to make this film a reality, and so many more are helping out at this benefit. I’m currently unemployed and I simply can’t afford the tickets. I’d just love to be there to show my love and support for so many people I admire, adore, and love.

  36. C April 1, 2011 at 11:21 am #

    Is there really anything better than Storm Large?!?!… yeah.. didn’t think so. ;D Wanna come show my love and support!!!

  37. Christopher Robins April 1, 2011 at 12:53 pm #

    ,. Sounds like awesome sauce, would love to go,.

  38. Jessica Kanewske April 3, 2011 at 7:19 am #

    I would like to go because Rid of Me was filmed at the candy store I manage, and I was also in the film. Candy store managers are humble people, who make very little money for peddling sugar. So not having to spend $100.00 bucks on tickets would make my life much easier.

  39. Chris Jackson April 3, 2011 at 10:27 am #

    To rise up from a life of quite desperation
    Tickets to this event would be an inspiration.

  40. Marcia Thomas April 3, 2011 at 11:21 am #

    Because I missed the last two Storm Large shows and because other people who missed 2 shows say that it is the stupidest thing they have ever done AND to support a grand start for Rid of Me.

  41. Cinnabunny April 3, 2011 at 2:42 pm #

    Why I want to win to free tickets? Because I’m cute and single and I loves to mingle in a pink bunny tail kind of way.

  42. sabrina April 3, 2011 at 6:25 pm #

    i adore katie; she’s incredible. i want to support her and james; i truly believe they’ll win first place at tribeca. i also happen to think that storm is awesome. and hell, the hubster and i could use a good date night (and if he doesn’t want to go, i’ve got a few a few babes in my crew who’d love to hang at such a cool event).

  43. David April 4, 2011 at 10:01 pm #

    My 53rd birthday is Friday April 8th. I have CF. “just saying”.

  44. Anastacia April 5, 2011 at 1:17 pm #

    Because I WILL show up a gold cat suit and roller skates. (Don’t worry, I will take the skates off before entering and imbibing.)

  45. Juan April 8, 2011 at 9:09 pm #
