Haiku Contest: Win Tickets to See Vampire Weekend at a Secret Small New York Show

It's year-end list time, and one album that will surely be showing up a lot is Vampire Weekend's Modern Vampires of the City, so why not celebrate the closing of 2013 by seeing the band live? On December 10, they are taping a performance for PBS's Live From the Artists Den at a secret, intimate New York location, and we have one pair of tickets to give away. All you need to do is haiku: Write your best Vampire Weekend–inspired haiku in the comments section below and we'll pick the best to win the tickets. (Note: The show is 18 and over.) This poem can be about one of their songs, one of their albums, or their general vibe, but it must be in 5-7-5 structure. Here's an example: 

Vampire Weekend:
Guitar, Bass, drums, and keyboard
Fuck! Oxford comma

Put your submissions in the comments below by midnight Eastern time tonight, December 5, and we will reveal the winner on Friday, December 6. Full contest rules are available here. Good luck! (And if you want to attempt all angles for tickets, you can also try your luck on the Artists Den website for a seat.)
