Win Tickets to Saturday's Doves Show

By David Malitz

Look at those 9:30 club listings. Starting Saturday there's a string of six consecutive sold-out shows. But we have your ticket into the first of those sold-out shows, by Doves (listen), the trio known for its soaring Brit-rock anthems.

We don't just have tickets, we also have passes to the exclusive pre-party at D.C.'s Gibson Showroom (709 G St. NW) on Saturday afternoon. That's an invite-only affair with free food, free booze and photo and autograph ops with the band. Plus, we're giving away the entire Doves discography. Not bad, right?

It all goes down in tomorrow's edition of Got Plans? Here's the prize breakdown:

Grand Prize: A pair of tickets to Saturday's sold-out show at 9:30 club plus two invites to the Gibson Pre-Party
First Runner Up: Two invites to the Gibson Pre-Party
Second Runner Up: Doves catalogue on CD

To enter, just submit a clever sentence using both the words "doves" and "Gibson." For example: I can't believe Kirk Gibson hit two doves with that line drive! We'll pick our three favorites and announce them at the end of the chat. Good luck!

Why on earth did Debbie GIBSON think it was wise to follow in the footsteps of Ozzy Osbourne and bite the heads off some DOVES at the start of her "Deborah" tour?

Hey Debbie GIBSON, what do you think happened to those DOVES we got for the Phi Delta Omega party?

Brah, my GIBSON Flying V is way cooler than those grotty Fenders the DOVES play!

After Daniel "Boobie" GIBSON's poor performance against the Magic, the Cavaliers should be renamed the DOVES.

Oh yeah, sure, maybe an African dove, but a European dove could not carry Tyrese Gibson, and that's my point.

Going to the Gibson on 14th Street tomorrow night and will order Two Turtle Doves - vodka, coconut cream, creme de cacao and half & half - just in case you were wondering.

The right says we should be hawks, the left says we should be doves, and wild Mel Gibson says we should all have a drink!

Be a DOVE and make me a GIBSON with extra garnish please!

Did you see that girl with the DOVES t-shirt face-plant at the GIBSON last night?

Mel Gibson’s face paint kills two doves with one stone in Brave Heart: intimidation and beauty.

Mel Gibson's latest DUI arrest was, according to him, the result of his attempt to avoid doves flying backwards

When the Artist Formerly Known As Prince was just Prince, he really made love to that Gibson while belting out the lyric "when doves cry!"

Are those cocktail onions in that Gibson or did a flock of doves just lay their eggs in your martini glass?

Dude, Neil Young totally did not play his Gibson SG on the Hawks & Doves album - only the Fender Deluxe that goes up to 12 (not 11).

"CAW, CAW," said the doves perched on the roof of the Gibson.

For the last time, Debbie Gibson did NOT sing "White Wing Doves!" It was Stevie Nicks, and the song's called Edge of Seventeen!

The Doves played really well despite being all messed up on the Gibsons!

Before hitting his home run in Game 1 of the '88 series, Kirk Gibson feasted on a meal of snake hearts and doves tail, washed down with a nice chianti.

Seriously, I worked in the clubhouse at the time, and he's a total freak.

Does Prince play a Gibson or a Fender on "When Doves Cry"?

Mel Gibson raced onto the altar screaming outlandish obscenities while sacrificing 2 turtle doves.
