Last month when I went to see Hanson at The Orange Peel, while I was traipsing around trying to
seduce Taylor before the walk get out of the sun, I stumbled across one tiny, measly little flyer pinned to the wall, advertising a show exactly one month from the date of the Hanson show. it was for Tegan + Sara. WHAT. TEGAN +SARA? I nearly went through the ground. They are only one of my favorite bands ever!!
Years & years ago, the sassy Ms. Alex introduced me to the glory that is T+S, and I haven't looked back since! I have a huge emotional attachment to this band - taking the pilgrimage to see them five (FIVE?!) years ago in Atlanta was the first time I drove myself out of town EVER (my how times have changed!), the crowd from the aforementioned show taught me a lot about life, patchouli, and what not to wear, and some of these songs have been the only songs that got me through some of the more hellacious moments of my later teenage years. Hearing tracks off of "The Con" album (not to mention going all the way back to that ol tearjerker "Living Room") nearly broke my heart all over again, but it a good way. Being back in the eye of the patchouli storm again, however, nearly broke my heart all over again in a way that may require hospitalization. Anyway, yeah. LURB YOU, TEGAN & SARA.
MODEL THROUGH IT!!
