The Winning Ticket: The Saw Doctors

Saw Doctors @ 9:30 Club

As a way to say thanks to our loyal readers, We Love DC will be giving away a pair of tickets to a 9:30 Club concert to one lucky reader each week. Check back here every Wednesday morning at 9am to find out what tickets we’re giving away and leave a comment for your chance to be the lucky winner!

This week’s giveaway is a great treat from the Emerald Isle: two tickets to see The Saw Doctors at the 9:30 Club on Thursday, August 12th (Tomorrow!)

The Saw Doctors are a great Irish rock band. In Ireland these guys are superstars with 18 Top-30 singles and 3 #1-singles over the last 25 years. I’d bet a pint or two that there are some fans over there who would kill to see The Saw Doctors in the intimate, indoor setting of the 9:30 Club. If you’re unfamiliar with The Saw Doctors, they specialize in a great story-telling pub-rock sound. In some ways they play like an Irish-version of The Stranglers. Their lyrical style is full of great Irish humor and whimsy, but can also deliver some real bar-keep wisdom too. Also of entertainment value on Thursday night will be The Saw Doctors’ legendary fan-base, made up of enthusiastic Irish diaspora of which DC has plenty.

For your chance to win these tickets simply leave a comment on this post using a valid email address between 9am and 4pm today. One entry per email address, please. Tickets for this show are also available through Ticketfly If today doesn’t turn out to be your lucky day, check back here each Wednesday for a chance to win tickets to other great concerts.

For the rules of this giveaway…

  1. Sounds like a great show! Tickets or no, I have a new band to add to my listening queue. Thanks!

  2. I echo Brandy’s comments. Should be a great show or at least a great band to keep an eye out for.

  3. The next best thing to hopping a flight to Ireland! Hopefully they’ll bring some cooler Irish weather with them.
