Enter to win an experience you'll never forget: HUMP! is a one-of-a-kind festival of short, dirty films curated by the filthiest of them all, Dan Savage. The films shown at HUMP! are always surprising—they can be hardcore, soft-core, comedic, serious, animated, musical—but all HUMP! films are made by real people, for real people. HUMP! 2023 will be at Revolution Hall March 3-11 and feature ALL NEW FILMS. So get your tickets now or enter to win here!
Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark, March 3-11, various times, $25, 21+
• ENTER TO WIN FREE TICKETS to see Lacuna Coil at the Crystal Ballroom on May 7!
Italian alt-metal superstars Lacuna Coil are shifting the paradigm, rocketing the Milan-based outfit into the upper echelons of metaldom. Lacuna Coil have never shied away from hard work, nor have they restrained their creative impulses to push things. New songs "Anima Nera," "Reckless," "Veneficium," and "Sword of Anger" are mind-blowers and the high-flying Italian act has demonstrated an uncanny ability to pull in rock, gothic, and metal audiences. Get your tickets now or enter to win here!
Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, Sun May 7, 8 pm, $28.50-$38.50, all ages
GOOD LUCK, and all winners will be notified by Monday at noon. And check back next week for more FREE TIX from the Mercury!
