Do you already have plans for New Year's Eve? Well, then may I heartily suggest the always rambunctiously fun "Fir Ball 2013" at the Doug Fir (830 E Burnside)! This year they'll be hurling themselves into 2013 with a fantastic lineup: DJ Safi spinning on the patio, The Minus 5 (featuring Scott McCaughey and R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck), AND Weinland's NYE Super Group made up of 20-plus of Portland's finest musicians playing the 25 top dance songs of all time! Expect Prince, Michael Jackson, Journey, Bee Gees, Bell Biv Devoe (YEEEESSSSS!!), Beastie Boys and more!
Plus I imagine there will be alcohol.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO TO THIS? FOR FREE?? Normally, tickets for the Fir Ball sell out quick, and will run you $22 advance or $25 the day of show—but I've got TWO FREE TICKETS to give away to a very lucky Blogtown winner. And wait, there's more! I will also throw in a $50 GIFT CERTIFICATE to Doug Fir, which should help fill your belly with food and cocktails.
To enter, email me here by noon Friday, Dec 21, and put "I MUST WIN THIS!!" in the subject line. The winner will be picked at random and notified by email on Friday. But whether you win or not, go to this show, and start the best year ever with one of the best shows ever!
UPDATE: And we have a winner! Thanks to everyone for playing!
