oin us for an evening with Mars Retrival Unit!

Win Tickets ($36): Portland Story Theater Presents Lawrence Howard, Armchair Adventurer, in Polar Opposites @ The Old Church Concert Hall | Recounting Heroic & Tragic Events 100 Years Ago (January 6)
Polar Opposites recounts heroic and tragic events in Antarctica one hundred years ago. Scott and his four companions fought their way to the Pole only to find the Norwegian flag flying there: Amundsen had beaten him by five weeks. Crushed by disappointment, utterly exhausted and short on food and fuel, Scott and his companions froze and starved to death on the return journey, just eleven miles from a huge cache of provisions and supplies. This a tale of the agony and the ecstasy, of accomplishment and failure, of a glorious victory overshadowed by an even more glorious defeat. To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($40): Destroyer @ Wonder Ballroom | Indie Rock (January 10)
Of his 12th studio album and its enigmatic title, Destroyer’s Dan Bejar offers the following: Sometime last year, I discovered that the original name for “The Wild Ones” (one of the great English-language ballads of the last 100 years or so) was “Ken.” I had an epiphany, I was physically struck by this information. In an attempt to hold on to this feeling, I decided to lift the original title of that song and use it for my own purposes. It’s unclear to me what that purpose is, or what the connection is.

Win Tickets ($50): Steel Panther – Lower The Bar Tour @ Crystal Ballroom | Comedic Glam Metal Band (January 12)
The title of Steel Panther’s third full-length album, All You Can Eat, came from a dream.
