You’ll get a flight of 6 IPAs, and a separate list of all 6 beers including the hop varietals used in each, as disclosed by the brewers. You may get to smell-test some dried hops. You try to match the 6 with a list of 6 beers. To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($80): Martha Davis & The Motels @ Aladdin Theater | New Wave, Alternative Rock (January 9)
Whether you were there when The Motels first burst onto the music scene, or are just discovering them now, 2014 became a year of rediscovery for this iconic artist, which saw more Motels shows than in any year since 1985. Martha began writing songs at the age of 15 and has always known that the songs she writes are her mark. To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($46): Miz Kitty’s Parlour Enchantment by the Sea! @ Alberta Rose Theatre | Music, Acrobatics, Comedy, w/ Perola Jazz Band, Curt Carlyle & More! (January 9)
Spectacular Music, Acrobatics, Comedy, Surprises & of course Fabulous Door Prizes! Miz Kitty and Friends have been putting the Devil back into Vaudeville since 2002. To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($44): JD McPherson @ Wonder Ballroom | w/ HoneyHoney, Rhythm & Blues, Rock N’ Roll (January 13)
But in a very real sense, McPherson is much more a pioneer than roots resuscitator. He’s knocking at the door of something that arguably hasn’t yet been accomplished—a spirited, almost spiritual hybrid that brings the forgotten lessons from the earliest days of rock & roll into a future that has room for the modernities of studio technique and 21st century singer/songwriter idiosyncrasies that Richard Penniman would not recognize.

Win Tickets ($50): DeVotchKa @ Revolution Hall | Indie Rock, Gypsy Punk, Dark Cabaret (January 13)
A once in a lifetime opportunity for a band, some of DeVotchKa’s most iconic songs were revisited, restructured, and performed with a full 60-piece orchestra. Rather than hire a composer to create the charts for each instrument, the band took it upon themselves, with Tom Hagerman spending months locked away in his garage fleshing out each note that the orchestra performed.

Win Weekend Passes ($70): Old Time Music Gathering @ Tiffany Center | American Roots Music, Square Dance, One of America’s Most Unique Old-Time Events (January 13-17)

Head to a square dance, where live bands and enthusiastic square dance callers will help beginners and veterans alike swing their partners and promenade with pride. Take out your guitar, banjo, fiddle or mandolin and join an informal jam or improve your technique at an expert-led workshop.

Win Tickets ($70): Grammy Winner Shawn Colvin @ Aladdin Theater | Americana, Pop, Singer / Songwriter (January 15)
On her new album Uncovered, acclaimed singer/songwriter Shawn Colvin shines with sublime sensitivity, casting new light on an exquisitely curated collection of songs from some of the most admired writers in popular music history. Uncovered’s twelve tunes include songs by Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Tom Waits, Stevie Wonder, Robbie Robertson and Graham Nash to name a few, but in their selection and delivery, they are pure Shawn Colvin. As Shawn says: “Unless a song moves you, it doesn’t matter what you do with it.” To win, comment on this post here.
Win Tickets ($56): Shoot to Thrill – AC/DC Tribute / Steelhorse Bon Jovi Tribute @ Revolution Hall | + Throwback Hairband Hits (January 16)

Win Tickets ($36): Portland Story Theater Presents Lawrence Howard, Armchair Adventurer, in Shackleton, The Untold Story at Alberta Abbey | 2016 Fertile Ground Festival, The True Story of the Ross Sea Party (January 23)
This is a story that speaks to something very deep within the human psyche. It’s about a glorious, glorious failure. It’s about fortitude and determination. It’s about duty, and honor. It’s about finding vast reserves of strength we didn’t know we had within us. It’s about the way human beings respond to hardship and adversity. It’s about the indomitable power of the human spirit.
