The Winning Ticket: The Roots


As a way to say thanks to our loyal readers, We Love DC will be giving away a pair of tickets to a 9:30 Club concert to one lucky reader each week. Check back here every Wednesday morning at 9am to find out what tickets we’re giving away and leave a comment for your chance to be the lucky winner!

This week we are giving away a pair of tickets to see The Roots perform at the 9:30 Club on Tuesday, December 28th. This is the second night of their two night-stint at the club. The Roots have been classing-up hip-hop for over twenty years with their live instrumentation and jazz-cool vibe. Most recently they have been holding down the fort as the house band for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Their five-nights-a-week gig on Fallon keeps The Roots super-sharp at all times. Enjoy a perfect Holiday chill-out show courtesy of these real instrument playing, hip-hop heroes.

For your chance to win these tickets simply leave a comment on this post using a valid email address between 9am and 4pm today. One entry per email address, please. If today doesn’t turn out to be your lucky day, check back here each Wednesday for a chance to win tickets to other great concerts. Tickets for this concert are also available through Ticketfly.

For the rules of this giveaway…

Comments will be closed at 4pm and a winner will be randomly selected. The winner will be notified by email. The winner must respond to our email within 24 hours or they will forfeit their tickets and we will pick another winner.

Tickets will be available to the winner at the 9:30 Club Guest List window one hour before doors open on the night of the concert. The tickets must be claimed with a valid ID. The winner must be old enough to attend the specific concert or must have a parent’s permission to enter if he/she is under 18 years old.
