The Doug Fir has a special Valentine just for you. Tomorrow night, they're hosting a covers night for the big V-Day. Bands like Melville, Rebecca Marie Miller (of the Mynabirds), Spirit Lake, and Rio Grands will all be playing the best love-song covers, and to cap it off, the Moody Dudes will make a rare appearance. The Moody Dudes are a group of local all-stars who only play on Valentine's Day (and whose ranks include Blitzen Trapper's Eric Earley and the Parson Red Heads' Evan Way). It's safe to say they know their way around a love ballad.
We're giving away two pairs of tickets to the show—PLUS each winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the Doug Fir restaurant. As the Doug Fir's Anna Jensen puts it, it's good for "a fancy schmancy love-filled DF grubfest. (Probably 1 am cheese fries, but whatever.)"
It's the most romantic contest we've ever held! And it's just in time for those who forgot all about Valentine's Day this year (we're not judging). We'll do this one a little different—the FIRST TWO people to send an email to contest at portlandmercury dot com with the words "Save My V-Day!" in the subject line will each win a prize pack, with two concert tix and the gift certificate. Please include your first and last name in the email. This will go fast, so do it now!
You're still a winner if you buy tickets here.
