It’s Halloween and it’s also Monday which means you probably spent the whole weekend celebrating and didn’t think much about how the Holiday Itself is today. Perhaps you showed up at work this morning bleary-eyed with vague traces of glitter and/or eye makeup and/or glitter eye makeup lingering in your hairline, a smudge of body paint in the crease of your elbow. You probably ate a Snickers for breakfast from the stash you “bought for your neighbors” because Snickers have peanuts, which is protein, right?
While you might already be scheming about next year’s costume, don’t pack up your festive pumpkin lights just yet. We have a very special Halloween event just for you: It’s Tegan and Sara, renowned queer twin angsty-guitar-duo-turned-pop-sensation, streaming live from House of Blues Boston and presented by Live Nation!
Tegan and Sara are touring for their EIGHTH album, Love You To Death, probing further into the pop side that they began exploring on their 2013 album Heartthrob. The album is extremely danceable, but that doesn’t mean it’s not deep. The Quins explore their relationship as twins for the first time, push back against the normative expectations that come with marriage equality, and spiral through the confusion of falling in love with a girl who just wants to be best friends. Tegan and Sara may have cracked mainstream appeal in the past few years, but their music is still unapologetically and undeniably queer.
So come on in and watch this live performance with me! The show starts at 9:15pm EST. Then share all your feelings in the comments.
And also in the comments, tell me: What’s your favorite song from the new album? What old song do you hope they’ll play? How many plays do “Boyfriend” and “Closer” have on your iTunes? What’s the biggest feeling Tegan and Sara have made you feel? How was your Halloween weekend? Will you post a picture of you all dressed up?
