Vulture Contest: Win Two Tickets to a Private John Legend and the Roots Show


Last month John Legend and the Roots released their full-length collaborative album, Wake Up!, a rare bit of social commentary and push for activism that you can still dance to. On November 9, the two acts will be performing a private, intimate show at the Bowery Ballroom, and Vulture wants you to be there. All you have to do is pen one awesome haiku — that's five, seven, and five syllables — about Wake Up!. Leave it in the comments section below by 5 p.m. on Thursday, and make sure to come back Friday to see who won the pair of tickets. For instant inspiration, check out Legend and the Roots' lead single, “Wake Up Everybody,” right here.
