Surely you know that McMenamins is opening the Crystal Hotel in downtown Portland next week. After all, we have been blogging about it for months and months now. To celebrate, there will be free concerts in Al's Den and Ringlers Pub, plus the one and only M.Ward will be headlining not one, but three shows at the Crystal Ballroom on May 3-5. Each M.Ward show will be unique (just like a snowflake!), including some fine openers like the Corin Tucker Band, David Bazan, Doug Martsch, and plenty more.

To celebrate this celebration, we are giving away a pair of tickets to the Tuesday, May 3rd show. Joining him that night will be Scott McCaughey and the Corin Tucker Band, so hey, lucky you. To win, just comment below and explain why you deserve to be at this show. The best comment by tomorrow at 4pm will be the proud winner of these two tickets. Good luck.

If commenting isn't your thing, just buy tickets here.
