Friday was the last official Tegan and Sara show for this album cycle. It was good, but kind of odd. First of all it was a random one-off, a month after the last official tour of The Con. Second of all it was put on by VanOC, the Vancouver Olympic Committee… for the Olympics a year away from now?! Anyways, the show went well and it was held in a great venue in Vancouver called the Orpheum… where multiple episodes of Battlestar Galactica where filmed. Do I have any other random facts from the show? Yes. It was dual billed with Broken Social Scene, and they were great. That was more of a statement followed by an opinion.

Ok but more important than the show, were the two days before that, where the whole band plus Chris Walla sat in a room for 7 hours and worked on the new material for the next album.

In closing,

Goodbye concerts, Hello studios.


  1. That was a good show. Also, your guys gear is heavy! I had to help pack that stuff on stage at Under the Volcano in August, and my little body couldn't do it! To the gym I shall go!

  2. It was a great show. Two thumbs up!
    I thoroughly enjoyed it, so good job to all of you and thanks for making 2009 great already.

    I know it is far away but....
    There's no doubt in my mind that the new album will be worth the wait, for realz. Excitement ensues.

  3. The Orpheum show was amazing! I don't think I have ever been to a nicer venue for a rock concert.
    I am so happy to hear that you, Ted, and Johnny are working on this next record! 2009 will be great for T&S!
