This coming Tuesday, on April 2, Talib Kweli comes to Portland's Hawthorne Theatre with not just a huge back catalog of hits, but also some new songs from his forthcoming album Prisoner of Conscious, due out April 23. And the legendary emcee will be performing with a live band. Plus! Portland's own hiphop-and-beyond practitioners Chicharones are on the bill, making this a can't-miss evening of excitement.

This is a damn fine bill and a rowdy Tuesday night, and we're giving away a pair of tickets to a lucky End Hits reader. Hey, you're lucky! Hey, you're reading End Hits! Then enter, by sending an email to this address with the words "Talib Kweli" in the subject line. Please include your first and last name in the email; we'll select a winner at random and send them on their way to the show. This closes first thing Monday morning (9 am), so—ready, set, go!

Tickets are on sale here, too.
