    Have always wanted to goto The Video Dance Attack Halloween Party…..the totally awesome 80’s monster bash!!

  5. Harlan Mayer October 19, 2015 at 8:03 pm #

    It’s the video that really made horror and music a natural combination… Thriller


  6. Teresa October 19, 2015 at 9:19 pm #

    This is the best Halloween event, no contest. I never miss it!

  7. Kristie October 19, 2015 at 9:27 pm #

    I lived through, and love the 80’s, music, clothes and especially the aqua net induced bangs! My boyfriend on the other hand claims to hate 80’s music, but he can sure bust a move to a Boy George song! Lets put on some leg warmers and celebrate Halloween :)

  8. Kaitlyn G October 19, 2015 at 9:32 pm #

    I’m finally back home and this would be the perfect opportunity to meet up with friends! Otherwise I’m stuck handing out candy and chilling with my dog!

  9. Jay October 19, 2015 at 11:22 pm #

    It will be the best experience party.

  10. Becka Cook October 20, 2015 at 5:48 am #

    This would be a blast!

  11. Karmel October 20, 2015 at 10:03 am #

    Would love to enjoy a Howling good time at the dance attack! Please gift tix for my groovy ghoulies.

  12. Loren October 20, 2015 at 11:34 am #

    Would love to check this out! Have never been and Halloween seems like the perfect occasion.

  13. Ryan G October 20, 2015 at 11:45 am #

  16. Allison gerdes October 20, 2015 at 3:46 pm #

    I already have my outfit ready! 80s night in the ballroom is my most favorite thing to do on a Friday, can’t wait for the Halloween edition!

  17. Rylee October 20, 2015 at 3:54 pm #

    My friends and I come to 80’s night almost every month! It is our absolute favorite thing to do! We’re your biggest fans. Pick me!!!!!

  18. Raven October 20, 2015 at 4:22 pm #

    I’ll be dripping in gold circa cheezy Elizabeth Taylor movie thus I want to be nowhere else except PDX’s best venue THE CRYSTAL BALLROOM dancing to Thriller (RIP Elizabeth & Michael BFF4L) and walking like an Egyptian!

  19. April Jackson October 20, 2015 at 4:23 pm #

    I would like to go because with kids and work (and being too old for this shit) we don’t get to go out much. Making my husband wear a costume would just be a bonus!

  20. Chad October 20, 2015 at 4:54 pm #

    I can name that tune in one word – Thriller!

  21. Jen October 20, 2015 at 6:57 pm #

    I’d love to win so that I can convince a friend to go with me!!! It’s been so long since I’ve gotten to go. What better time than Halloween!

  22. Shira October 20, 2015 at 10:38 pm #

    We love 80’s video dance attack and try to go whenever we can. We couldn’t make it to the Halloween party last year (we’ve been in the past) but we got a babysitter and are on track to go this year in costume and we couldn’t be more excited. It would be super cool to have free tickets to offset the cost of the babysitter! Pick me please! ;-)

  23. Steven Estrada October 20, 2015 at 10:46 pm #

    The last New Wave dance attack was insanely fun! Now this time for the best holiday of the year, count me in! HELL YA

  24. Alissa Davenport October 21, 2015 at 1:06 am #

    I would LOVE to be able to attend this event! I’m forced to work the night of Halloween and was bummed thinking I was going to miss out on all of the fun, but now I have hope again because I have the night off during this awesome event! I had to work on Halloween last year as well, so it’s about time I get to celebrate and have some fun!

  25. Nannette October 21, 2015 at 5:43 am #

    Would love to return for 5th year in a row. PLEASE!

  26. Kamren Ketcham October 21, 2015 at 8:47 am #

    Halloween is my favorite holiday and would love to bring lots of friends to 80’s music, dancing and costumes! It is perfect! Would love to win tickets!

  37. Meghan October 22, 2015 at 5:56 pm #

    My husband and I were looking for something fun to do on Halloween- and we’re planning to go as Marty McFly and Doc, so what better place for us to go party?! :D

  38. Elizabeth October 22, 2015 at 9:33 pm #

    My husband and I have 3 kids and have never been to a “grown up Halloween party”. We have a hotel in Portland this year on the 30th and would love these tickets. This sounds like a blast and love the idea of dressing up, and dancing the night away:)

  39. Amanda hatch October 22, 2015 at 10:18 pm #

    I’m in to win it! I’m down to dance the night away! 97.1 has my name all over it! 80s here I come!

  47. Aubrey October 23, 2015 at 3:27 pm #

    Hope I win!

  48. Ashley October 23, 2015 at 11:30 pm #

    Because I was born in 88! 80s dance attack sounds like a good time and 1988 was a good year because I was born…and born to win tickets to this party!!

  49. Nathan Wickstrom October 24, 2015 at 12:01 am #

    Suck my blood, sever my arteries, my blood will flow on your floors

  50. Staci Hart October 24, 2015 at 2:04 pm #

    I have the perfect group of amazing beautiful model friends and costumes ready to go for this event!!!!! :) we won’t disappoint you ;)
    Thank you for the opportunity that you give us all to win tickets for fun events like this :)

  51. AugBug October 25, 2015 at 10:37 am #

    Have never been, sounds fun! Looking for a good place to wear a hot costume…

  52. Milly October 25, 2015 at 10:46 am #

    I want to win tickets because EIGHTIES MUSIC + HALLOWEEN.

  53. Courtney October 25, 2015 at 3:39 pm #

    Because my friends and I need a night out without our toddlers! And we still love to dress up:)

  54. Keemac October 25, 2015 at 7:29 pm #

    And Walkers Everywhere?

  55. Thao October 25, 2015 at 10:32 pm #

    I love that this is the original music with the video. Sometimes people remix the song so much it loses its original appeal. And of course another chance to dress up for Halloween!!!

  56. Liz October 26, 2015 at 12:13 am #

    Who knew my cone bra from the Madonna concert would actually find another event to go to!

  57. Rob October 26, 2015 at 12:28 am #

    These tickets would totally allow me to justify dressing like Michael Jackson all week long. Need to get into character.

  58. Nick October 26, 2015 at 8:22 am #

    Just moved up to Portland from Phoenix with my fiancee and our friend Nathan is coming to visit us this weekend. We would love to show him a great time this weekend and this is one event we would love to do! Would need three tickets (I know it’s an odd number)

  59. sHERI October 26, 2015 at 10:00 am #

    Went to this a few years ago, excited to go back on Friday for festivies.

  60. Emily Dings October 26, 2015 at 10:12 am #

    Halloween is the best holiday of the year, and Video Dance Attack is the best dance party in Portland. My friends and I are going to be the cast from Wet Hot American Summer, and we can’t wait to electrify the dance floor with our white-hot moves.

  61. Chloe October 26, 2015 at 3:53 pm #

    I really really want these but I also really really NEED these

  62. Gabby October 27, 2015 at 4:31 pm #

    Is it too late!? I’m a teacher and I spend my days working hard to help my little kiddos grow up big strong. I’ve decided Halloween will be my opportunity to let loose and finally have some fun of my own. Help my dreams come true! Pick me! If not for me, then do it for the children!!

  63. Morgan Oyster-Sands October 27, 2015 at 10:50 pm #

    Halloween is my favorite holiday! I would love to go and dance ALL night!!!

  64. Patricia October 28, 2015 at 11:49 am #

    I’ll never give you up, I’ll never make you cry, I’ll never run and hide or desert you if I get picked!
