Show/Contest Fucking Crush: Win a pair of tickets to Amanda Palmer / Tristan Allen at Berklee this Sunday

December 7, 2010

By now you’ve heard the story, right? Boston superstar happens upon piano wunderkind on the street, invites him to her house to play for her, gives him his big break? Wherein wunderkind = Berklee summer school student Tristan Allen and superstar = our new BFF Amanda Palmer (there she is, below, with a few of us at the BMAs the other night – where she won Artist of the Year). The pair will take to Berklee’s stage this Sunday, and you and a friend can be there for free! Alls ya gotta do is send us an email with the subject “TRISTAN & AMANDA” by Friday morning, when we’ll pick a winner.

More about the project:

“The minute I saw him play the piano, I was mesmerized,” said Palmer. “He reminded me a lot of myself when I was younger. The fact that he had the guts to ask me if he could play his music for me, right there on the street, was what sold me. I thought: ‘This kid totally has what it takes to make it.'”

You can download their piano duet “János vs Wonderland” on our latest sampler!
