Tegan and Sara

When: Fri., June 9, 8 p.m. 2017

Since 1995, twin sisters Tegan and Sara Quin have dipped their toes in nearly every genre, from folk and rock to pop, releasing eight studio albums over the past twenty-two years. Last year's Love You to Death is their poppiest yet, drawing inspiration from eighties stars like Cyndi Lauper and Madonna, plus their modern-day successors like Taylor Swift, Lorde, and Charli XCX. The two openly identify as gay and are devoted advocates of LGBTQ rights, vocalizing support for Against Me!'s trans frontwoman Laura Jane Grace and opposition to California's Proposition 8, which would have determined marriage to be between a man and a woman. More recently, they've refused to boycott North Carolina in response to HB 2, and, in December of 2016, they founded the Tegan and Sara Foundation to fight for "economic justice, health, and representation for LGBTQ girls and women" in the wake of the presidential election. Their voices are as powerful in song as they are when demanding change. —Annalise Domenighini
