On Monday, June 10, the one and only Pharoahe Monch shall be holding down the Hawthorne Theatre stage, bringing his socially conscious hiphop to a Portland crowd. Monch is a fiery performer who incorporates the history of jazz, funk, and soul into his music, as can be heard on his most recent single "Damage."

We're giving away a pair of tickets to see Pharoahe Monch, and you would like to win them! Send an email to this address with "Pharoahe Monch" in the subject line (spelling counts!). Please include your first and last name in the email, and we'll select a winner at random and give him or her the hookup. This contest closes Monday, June 3 at 5 pm, so get on with it!
