PORTLAND CELLO PROJECT, THE ALIALUJAH CHOIR
(Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie) The long-form folk music perpetrated by Portland's own Alialujah Choir is pretty dreamy on its own. But it finds a perfect accompaniment in the sultry strings of the Portland Cello Project. Better? This show comes with friends from Blitzen Trapper and Blind Pilot. But tickets are sold out. So you'll need to be as creative as the musicians who make this mashup work so well. DENIS C. THERIAULT
