By now you should be quite familiar with the gorgeous sounds of The Portland Cello Project, so it's no surprise to you that this ensemble has a new record on the way. Out today courtesy of Kill Rock Stars, The Thao And Justin Power Sessions is the finest work of the PCP, as it balances their swelling arrangements with a pair of talented voices: Local gent Justin Power, and Thao Nguyen (Thao & The Get Down, Stay Down). Want to have a listen?


The Portland Cello Project - "Tallymarks" (Featuring Thao)

You're totally right, that really is a great song.
To celebrate the release of this record, the PCP (plus Justin Power and Thao) will be throwing a "CD Release Extravaganza" at the Aladdin Theater this Friday night, and we want you and a guest to go for free. But that's not all, we'll also toss in a copy of the The Thao And Justin Power Sessions CD as well. That way you can learn all the songs in advance and scream out the words loudly while the band performs. (Please do not do this.)

To get these tickets, and your copy of the CD, just comment below with why you deserve to be the glorious winner. The best comment by tomorrow (Wednesday) at noon will be the winner of the two tickets. Good luck.
