Oh, Tegan and Sara. Where would our ears, minds, and hearts be without you? Call me crazy, but I’d almost rather be sleeping with the fishes than living in a T&S-free world. And hey, maybe I’d become a ghost and the girls could totally get to walk with me, right? Going strong since the late ‘90s, our favorite pair of indie-darling Canadian twin sisters (I know, it’s so hard to choose a favorite) are continuing to rock out well into the 21st century. With the release of the sisters’ most recent effort, Heartthrob, and a cross-continent string of live tour dates, it’s not hard to see why Tegan and Sara have remained so respected and relevant, even as other folksy, Lilith Fair-ian contemporaries have faded into the ether. Do yourself a massive favor and head out to the Meijer Gardens for a late June twin-treat. T&S are here at your service, so expect only the best of what complimentary guitar licks and tender indie pop hooks have to offer.
