The Winning Ticket: Paul Oakenfold

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 we are giving away a pair of tickets to see Paul Oakenfold, arguably the most well-known DJ in the world, perform at the 9:30 Club on Tuesday, November 23rd. A major force on the electronic music scene for more than twenty-years, Oakenfold has introduced the world to new scenes and sounds in electronic music over and over again. Oakenfold says that the Facelift tour is all about representing the evolving nature of dance music and to make his point he is bringing along two hot electronic acts as openers, Chuckie and the Nervo Twins, and a sick audio/video set-up that should give Deadmau5 a run for his money.

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…

Comments will be closed at 4pm and a winner will be randomly selected. The winner will be notified by email. The winner must respond to our email within 24 hours or they will forfeit their tickets and we will pick another winner.

Tickets will be available to the winner at the 9:30 Club Guest List window one hour before doors open on the night of the concert. The tickets must be claimed with a valid ID. The winner must be old enough to attend the specific concert or must have a parent’s permission to enter if he/she is under 18 years old.

Michael splits his free time between defending the little guy and championing the underdog. He has been haunting the concert halls, dive bars, and greasy spoons of DC for the last 16 years. His interests include live rock music, researching obscure military/political conflicts, and good hamburgers. He is a friendly grump, has wisdom beyond his years, and is on a life-long quest to attain music nirvana. Follow him on Twitter if you dare!

  1. Paul Oakenfold is someone I’ve wanted to see for about 10 years now and have never had the chance! Fingers crossed on this one! I’ll just happen to be in town that night.. coincidence?!

  2. LOVE him, he has helped me love, laugh, live, run and DANCE through MUCH of my life. The soundtrack to good times ALWAYS features P.O. <3

  4. I eat bananas so that I don’t get a cramp in my foot. They also taste good. What a pleasant treat you know? Enjoying one just after a sip from a fresh cup of joe. I have some granola too. I’m going to eat that later to stimulate my metabolism. I do all this and still do not have a girlfriend. This has nothing to do with Paul Oakenfold.

  5. I hear he’s great live, but never seen him. I just want to go to an awesome concert on a Tuesday for free.

  6. Please put me on the guest list so I can put on my Jazzy Shades and Get Em Up to experience Future Funk while being Hypntotised by Paul Oakenfold.
