Update 5/17/12: Contest is over. Congrats to Jamaal Meezy Hinton and Stephanie Auld. Please shoot us an email for details on how to claim your tickets. Thanks to everybody for the entries!
Lupe Fiasco is playing City Hall tonight. Maybe you consider yourself a fan. You might bump The Cool every now and again -- hell, you might even loosely relate to the nerd-turned-cool kid premise. Chances are, you're probably not a diehard, sleep outside in the rain for concert tickets type of fan. Those fans aren't fans; they are Lasers. They're devoted, determined and dialed in. Page down to get the drop on the five things non-Lasers need to know about Lasers. And then, whether you're a Laser or not, leave a comment below for a chance to win a pair of tickets to tonight's show. We'll draw two winners around 4 p.m. (forewarning: we have hard tickets, so you'll need to stop by our office and pick them up).
