They’re already $40?  What?  You sure??

Okay, fine.  We’ll throw in two printable Summerfest tickets.

You want MORE?  Jeez.  You’re needy, aren’t  you…

Okay, fine.  How about a printable voucher for a $10 Summerfest gift card valid at participating food and beverage vendors at both Verge AND Summerfest?  Does that tickle your fancy?  I sure hope so because I really like you and want you to be happy.

Bleed ‘Til It Hurts*

You know that feeling you get when you do something good for someone else?   We think you deserve a little more.  How about tickets to see Crash Kings at The Rave?   FM102/1 and The Blood Center of Wisconsin will be hosting the Bleed ‘Til It Hurts blood drive at the Bayshore Town Center from 9am to 2pm on Saturday, February 6th.  We’ll give a pair of tickets to Kramp and Adler’s Missed Connections Mixer with Crash Kings and Violent Soho to everyone that donates!  Click on the flyer below to book your appointment:

Feel free to show up that day, however, space may be limited.  We think you should suck it up and make your appointment early.


Bleed ‘Til It Hurts” is a name we came up with because we are exceptionally witty and creative (and ridiculously good-looking).   It is a play on words.  If it actually starts to hurt, you should let someone know.  That would be smart.
