    My ex-wife, (and friend) and I decided to start dating after I met up with her at a fast food joint in Anchorage, Alaska right after she attended the Quarterflash concert on New Years Eve 1984-1985! btw…our beautiful daughter just turned 21 this month!!! Yay Adrianna!!!

    My husband doesn’t like to go out on New Year’s Eve. He calls it “Amateur Night”. I am positive I could persuade him to get off the couch for the evening if we won Quarterflash tickets. He loves 80’s music, and nostalgia, plus being a native Oregonian endeared him to Quarterflash even more. And I would love the opportunity to dress up and celebrate with someone beside Dick Clark for once! : )

    My husband and I live in the house where Marv Ross grew up. I LOVE Quarterflash!!!! I grew up in the 80’s and have always loved them. There couldn’t be a better way to ring in 2012 than celebrating the anniversary of Quarterflash!!!

  8. Ed December 22, 2011 at 12:48 pm #

    Quarterflash is awesome! This will be a GREAT show!

  9. Colleen Fulford December 22, 2011 at 1:34 pm #

    My parents met at a QuarterFlash concert, before when they were the Seafood Mama’s. I would love to win them tickets to this concert!

  10. Greg December 22, 2011 at 2:22 pm #

    I’ve been a fan of Quaterflash since they were called Seafood Mama. Oh that Rindy!!

  11. Tonia December 22, 2011 at 2:44 pm #

    Have not yet experienced the Aladdin Theatre and Quaterflash would definitely do it right!

  12. The big DA December 22, 2011 at 3:03 pm #

    Sure, everyone loves Rindy Ross, from Seafood Mama days onward (and so do I) QuarterFlash wouldn’t be such a rockn’ band without Marv Ross, Jack Charles and DiGiallonardo!

  13. Dave G December 22, 2011 at 3:07 pm #

    This would be a super fun time, bringing back great memories, and at my favorite venue in the city! (Not to mention it’s close to home)

  14. Kathy L December 22, 2011 at 3:15 pm #

    No plans for New Year’s Eve…..Yet! A trip down memory lane with Quarterflash sounds like a great time! And….I’ve never been to the Aladdin Theatre. There’s a first time for everything right?!

  15. Shari December 22, 2011 at 3:30 pm #

    Pick me!! I live in Seattle and would live to experience NYE PDX-style!!

  16. Tina December 22, 2011 at 3:32 pm #

    I live two blocks from the Aladdin and would love to spend New Year’s eve with Quarterflash.

  17. Bill December 22, 2011 at 4:06 pm #

    I would love to start off the new year with some retro music. 2011 was a great year and I want to celebrate!

    Portland rocks i really want to be there much love!!!!

  21. Mprothe December 22, 2011 at 7:27 pm #

    30 years and Counting. I had a pastor and friend who shared how much he loved Seafood Mama! Then, in college I had friends who shared how they knew Rindy and Marv as teachers in Central Oregon. Then there was the movie “Night Shift” which featured Seafood Mama, now, in the ’80’s Quarterflash. Their music was very much a part of my ensemble of “walkman” music as I worked late into the night during my 80’s college years.

    Greetings! Due to economic hard times…My husband and I have not been on a “date” in almost a year and would love to see Quarterflash! Last time we saw them was in 1980 in Vegas when they were the opening act for Elton John! Please pick us :)…..Happy Holidays

  28. John December 23, 2011 at 12:11 pm #

    I would like to attend, but wouldn’t pay. I am a full time student.

  29. Huck December 24, 2011 at 5:32 am #

    I grew up listening to them. What fun.

  30. Rich December 24, 2011 at 12:00 pm #

    I can never win the coolness one-upsmanship of “what was your first concert”: can’t trump the B-52s, or Gang of Four, or The Fixx, or The Police, not with Quarterflash in Darlington, SC.

    Not until now. Because now completing the circuit of 80s awesomeness to midlife crisis, it’s QUARTERFLASH FOR THE WIN!

    They need me as much as I need them! And I need them to need me. Which is NOT a Quarterflash lyric, but OMFG wouldn’t it have been brilliant if it was?! Pretend it was.

    Find another fool and pretend it was a lyric. Yes, that’s half ass, so pretend.

    You’re welcome!

  31. Jamie Martin December 24, 2011 at 12:29 pm #

    I wanna go!

  32. steve burnett December 24, 2011 at 12:57 pm #

    I NEED something to do on NYE!!!!

  33. Tammy December 24, 2011 at 11:10 pm #

    “…….. for a band to make it big in America, it had to be three quarters rock and one quarter flash!”

  34. lance young December 25, 2011 at 8:19 am #

    I’m coming into Portland to see my girlfriend for new years and want to have a good time !!

  35. Evelyn S December 25, 2011 at 12:25 pm #

    Absolutely Love Quarterflash and have yet to see a concert at the Aladdin.

  36. Carolyn December 26, 2011 at 4:55 pm #

    Started dancing to Seafood Mama, can’t believe Quarterflash emerged 30 years ago!

  37. Heidi December 26, 2011 at 8:13 pm #

    My boyfriend just surprised me and is flying up from Baton Rouge to be with me for NYE. He needs to experience Portland and a party at the Aladdin with Quarterflash would just about sum it up…with a few brews of course.

  38. Indipendance December 26, 2011 at 11:57 pm #

    I have badass shoes for this party!!! Gimme tickets pretty please!

  39. perry j December 27, 2011 at 3:23 pm #

    My Girlfriend (of almost a year) and is 33, has never been to a concert EVER, and I cant think of a better way to break her in than at a quarterflash concert at such a FANtastic venue as the aladdin theater and on new years eve. Our first new years together would be such a memorable one if we won.

  40. Susan Smith December 27, 2011 at 7:15 pm #

    You can’t get any better than this for New years!

  41. JC December 27, 2011 at 10:42 pm #

    One of the best concerts ever: Quarterflash & Night Ranger

  42. Jedidiah Fugle December 29, 2011 at 2:18 pm #

    If I get these tickets, I promise Will Smith will be my plus one.

  43. Kellie December 29, 2011 at 8:14 pm #

    I saw Quarterflash play a set in a basement club in downtown Portland in 1982. They were just getting popular, Harden My Heart was exploding on the scene. They were wonderful and I remember standing close enough to them to touch them (but I didn’t). It was a magical time and Quarterflash brought a lot of pride to Portland.

  44. Tracer December 30, 2011 at 5:52 am #

    We would sure love some tiks. Cheers

  45. Kathleen Alley December 24, 2015 at 8:22 pm #

    No idea who Quarterflash is but then I have not been out to any event on New years Eve in twenty years.

  46. Darcella December 24, 2016 at 6:51 pm #

    I remember Quarterflash in my younger days! Still a great band! Would so love to see them in concert, Pretty please!
