Okayplayer Holiday Jam 2013 W

UPDATE:  The contest has ended!  Congratulations to all of our winners!  See you on Monday!

Its that time of the year again folks. You know, the time when you take your corniest Holiday-Special-ready Cosby sweater out of mothballs and your favorite band–The Roots, natch–and your go-to music site decides to ring in the holidays the only way we know how; The 7th Annual Okayplayer Holiday Jam. Featuring The Roots and hosted by comedic star Hannibal Buress, this year’s jam will be as unpredictably amazing as always. So if you want your chance to experience some once-in-a-life time impromptu jams and must-see guests from OKP’s finest (we can’t tell you who’s gonna be there but think back to last year’s party; think Q-Tip, Talib Kweli and The Roots performed a classic rendition of “Electric Relaxation”–or A$AP Rocky performing “Goldie,” or dancehall legend Johnny Osbourne running down his classic “Budy Bye” and the list goes on and on.

For your chance to win, simply enter your first and last name and email address and you could win a pair of tickets for you and a friend to attend the most exclusive Holiday bash in the city (please note, by entering you are also signing up for OKP’s email list bringing new music to your inbox as well as the jump-offingest events in your urban locality). We’re giving away 25 pairs (each comes with a PLUS 1!).  Winners will be notified via email on Thursday December 5th.

    For a site that questlove is heavily involved in you would think there would be more sizes for big people.
