Portland Cello Project, Laura Gibson

Not many bands come with a mission statement, but the Portland Cello Project does. To wit: “To Bring the cello to places you wouldn’t normally hear it,” “to play music on the cello you wouldn’t normally hear played on the instrument” and “to build bridges across all musical communities by bringing a diverse assortment of musical collaborators on stage with them.” How successful are they at fulfilling their goals? Well, the Portland Cello Project has toured everywhere from punk clubs to sports bars to theaters, they’ve covered the likes of Pantera, Kanye West and Britney Spears, and they’ve collaborated with folks like The Dandy Warhols, Crooked Fingers and, on their current tour, Laura Gibson. Check, check and check! Gibson will also be doing a set of her own songs at this date, so consider it a must-see. The State Room, 638 S. State, 8 p.m., $14 advance/$17 day of show
