Longtime Canadian metal band Anvil is coming back to Portland next week to blast the roof off the Hawthorne Theatre on Thursday, April 24. We got to know Anvil from the hit documentary a few years back, and now Lips, Robb Reiner, and Sal Italiano—gotta love those names—will be rocking out in the flesh, just for you. Plus, they're joined by a stellar bill of talent in Cemetery Lust, Spellcaster, and Maniak.

We're giving away a pair of tickets! To enter, send an email to contest at portlandmercury dot com with "Send Me to Anvil!" in the subject line. Please include your first and last name in the email. We'll select a winner at random and send him or her, plus a guest, to the show. This contest closes Monday at noon, so act now!

Tickets can also be purchased legitimately by going here.
