Tegan and Sara

new york city friends!

we couldn't imagine spending the day after valentine's day (February 15th, 2010) with anyone else. who better than YOU, new york city, could help us nurse our candy heart hangovers?

we've decided, quite spontaneously, to offer an opportunity for some of you to spend an intimate night with us at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. perhaps it's worth noting that my use of the word intimate only applies to the small-ish size of the venue and the stripped down nature of the material we will be performing. i wouldn't call it an acoustic performance so much as a night of reinterpretations of the well worn and well loved album versions you've come to love.

we realize it's short notice, and we know the tickets will go fast. to those of you who miss out on the opportunity to share your post valentine's day loot with us, do not fret! we will return to your neck of the woods sooner than later. big announcements coming soon!

Yet another talented group hipsters used to like, but now shit on because they are popular.

Whe could anyone say a bad thing about these 2? They're talented, hard-working, smart as hell and have tons of cred.

Nice. I'll be there. I love these two little people.

they are utter shit. the only talent they have is for writing crap pop songs. how this is even considered "indie" is beyond me.

::sigh:: Judgemental hipsters, I'm bored with you. Go buy another scarf. Meanwhile I'll be at the show enjoying myself. These girls are awesome and put on an AMAZING show.

I don't care if they are lesbians or not. Their music just sucks hairy sweaty old-man ass.

They are great, and put on an amazing show, but $75? Got-dam!

Posted by Anonymous | January 29, 2010 11:14 AM

better be a pretty "intimate" show for $75...too bad...

Posted by Anonymous | January 29, 2010 11:33 AM

$75 is such a rip-off! WTF.

Posted by Anonymous | January 29, 2010 11:49 AM

seriously, $75? WTF?

Posted by Anonymous | January 29, 2010 11:52 AM

$75 for "stripped down nature of the material we will be performing. i wouldn't call it an acoustic performance so much as a night of reinterpretations of the well worn and well loved album versions you've come to love" ???

Posted by me | January 29, 2010 11:52 AM

I rarely complain about ticket prices but $75 is way out of line.

Posted by Anonymous | January 29, 2010 11:57 AM

i pulled the tickets up at noon but didnt buy them...75 is too much...

Posted by Anonymous | January 29, 2010 12:20 PM

Tickets to every other show on thi tour are between $30-$35. New Yorkers always get screwed. Are they going to play double the amount of songs with twice the effort?

Posted by Anonymous | January 29, 2010 12:37 PM

They'd better be performing naked for $75.

Posted by Anonymous | January 29, 2010 12:39 PM

They'd better put on a lesbian show for $75.

They'd better replace themselves with Morrissey & Johnny Marr for $75.

I love how everyone bitches about the ticket price, but guess what? Show is sold out big time and tickets were selling for 2x face on secondary markets.

11:39- That doesn't change the fact that T&S are assholes for doing this to their fans. Sufjan Stevens did four shows in October for (if I remember correctly) 15 bucks a ticket. He minimized ticket scamming by allowing no more than two will-call-only tickets per buyer and requiring ID for said will call. What I'm hearing from Camp T&S is, "We don't want you poor babies ripped off by scammers, so we're scamming you ourselves." $75 a ticket is outrageous and irresponsible. I feel sorry for anybody that bought into this.
