ACL FRIDAY PREVIEW: Tegan and Sara: Canadian twin sisters with heartfelt indie pop


Our neighbors from the north are known for many musical sensations—Justin Bieber, Celine Dion and Drake to name a few.  However, Canada’s greatest musical export may in fact be Tegan and Sara.

Openly lesbian and identical twin sisters Tegan and Sara Quin make melodic, quirky indie pop.  Their songs are biographical and emotional, yet somehow catchy and delightful at the same time.

Tegan and Sara are no stranger to putting on a show.  They’ve been touring since 1998 when they first graduated high school.   Their shows are down to a science.  They each alternate strumming the guitar, playing the keyboard and leading the vocals.

ACL is just one stop on their tour with the Black Keys and will most likely feature favorites from 2007‘s critically acclaimed “The Con,” their 2009 album “Sainthood,” as well as new songs off their upcoming album “Heartthrob.”

Audiences should expect a fun, heartfelt and thrilling show when they play Friday at 4:30 p.m. on the Bud Light Stage.
