I mentioned it a few weeks ago, but the summer concert series has started.
There are few things I love more than live music. I may or may not have droned on about this before. For me, the experience of seeing a band you know and enjoy perform music live, right in front of you, is sublime. I love hearing how the song is the same, different, better and even worse than what I have on my iPod, making something I know backwards and forwards something entirely different.
So on Monday night, Courtney and I went to go see Tegan and Sara at Terminal5. I’ve been listening to them for several years now, but had never seen them in concert until now. They’ve had four or five CDs released, that I know of, and have grown exponentially as artists, but whether I listen to their early stuff, or their new CD, I love it. Listen to some of their new stuff from The Con here
So needless to say, excited about the concert. And speaking of which?
Kick ass concert, you guys. And I’m not even going to go into why. Because you know what? Me telling you that their banter and jokes and stories are hilarious, or that their music is even better in person, or that they are just an Easter basket of awesomeness is not going to make you go see them. But you should.
What I DO want to go into is how I want to find a way to become best friends with both Tegan and Sara and do fun things with them like play Wii games and go to the movies and drink grown up drinks. Because they are that cool.
And I’m fairly certain that they’re pretty invested in becoming friends with me, because they said they’ll be back performing in NYC sometime this fall, and even though there were a few thousand people there, I’m kinda certain that they were letting me know specifically.
So yeah. I will be at every NYC concert from here on out. Sara. Tegan. Comment it up and let me know when we can hang. No pressure.
