Win Tickets ($100): Jawbreaker w/ Swearin’, Hurry Up @ Crystal Ballroom | Punk Rock

We are giving away a pair of tickets to each night of Jawbreaker at Crystal Ballroom on August 17-18. To win, comment on this post why you’d like to attend & which show if you have a preference. Winner will be drawn and emailed Monday, August 13.


From our sponsors:
Jawbreaker w/ Swearin’, Hurry Up
August 17 & 18, 2018
All Ages | Doors 6:30 p.m., Show 8 p.m. | $50

Crystal Ballroom
1332 W Burnside St, Portland, Oregon 97209

Independently minded and adhering to the old-school D.I.Y. punk mentality, West Coast punk-pop trio Jawbreaker’s street-smart — yet poetic — lyrics, spirited musicality, and marathon live shows put them a cut above contemporaries like Green Day and blink-182. After a series of EPs and singles, guitarist/singer Blake Schwarzenbach, bassist Chris Bauermeister, and drummer Adam Pfahler released the band’s debut album, Unfun, in 1989. Independent label San Francisco Tupelo/Communion signed the group the following year, releasing Bivouac in 1991 and their breakthrough record, 24 Hour Revenge Therapy, in 1993.

    I want to go to see Jawbreaker because my folks wouldn’t allow me to see them play in Arkansas when I was 14. Now I’m 40.

    24 Hour Revenge Therapy is probably my favorite album of all time. Getting to see them play after all of these years would definitely bring tears to my eyes.

    Two nights which means double the chances of winning!?!
    I like those odds.

    Jawbreaker was responsible for a whole host of poor teenage poetry in my life, but also shaped a great deal of my musical taste. Seeing them would be the best!V

    Have friends coming into town to see this show with me! Need tickets!

    I once went to see Kembra Pfahler’s band JUST BECAUSE she’s the drummers sister.
    I’d love to see Kembra Pfahler’s brother.

    I’d love the chance to win tickets as Jawbreaker is one of my favorite bands and I’ve never had a chance to see them. Dear You is one of my favorite albums. Listening to them also reminds me of being home in Denver, where even my friend’s brewery named a beer after the album! Pick me, pick me! :) I’d love to attend the 8/17 show. <3

    NO. WAY. I would love to see Jawbreaker :) never have. Listening to Chesterfield King for the first time in the university broadcast booth in 1993… hella wayback machine… thanks for the memory in any case!

  23. Amanda August 7, 2018 at 1:26 pm #

    This would be amazing

  24. Dave G. August 7, 2018 at 3:58 pm #

    August 18th is open on my schedule…

  25. Kevin Larkin August 7, 2018 at 5:04 pm #

    So my special lady knows that I won’t make the same mistake as others when they said, “I kissed the bottle. I should’ve been kissing you. You wake up to an empty night. With tears for two.”

  26. Kevin Larkin August 7, 2018 at 5:12 pm #

    Because I want my new love to know it wont’s be true that “I kissed the bottle. I should’ve been kissing you. You wake up to an empty night. With tears for two.”

    I would love to go and win free tickets! I met this really sweet girl and I was hoping this concert would be our next date if I win those tickets :)

    The husband and I crushed on each other watching Jawbreaker play a kajillion years ago. We’ve been waiting for this reunion for years but kid finances are keeping us away this time. Would love a rare night out and some celebratory high-fives while singing our hearts out.

    My relationship with my wife started with Jawbreaker and continues to run on a steady diet of their songs.

  31. Trent Sergi August 8, 2018 at 10:48 pm #

    I’d love to see this band live and i’m currently getting on my feet here in Portland so it’d be great to be able to attend a punk rock show in the meantime

  32. Shelli Conant August 10, 2018 at 5:20 pm #

    Please, please, please!!!

  33. George August 12, 2018 at 12:55 pm #

    I have a friend who will be in town and this would make his visit magical.

  34. Chris August 12, 2018 at 1:55 pm #

    I cant believe they’re reuniting, never thought it would happen.

  35. Darryl August 12, 2018 at 10:08 pm #

    They broke up just before I started going to shows and I feel like they’re the only ones left that I still need to see.

    Friday show
