It's late, the Phillies just lost, I needed to get an emergency pulpotomy this afternoon (which should hold me over until I can get a pulpectomy next week), I got about four hours of sleep last night because I had an icepack plastered to my face, and I just found out today that Boston blogs harder than Philly - so I'm going to keep this short:
Last Friday's WXPN Free-at-Noon concert featured Tegan & Sara, the Canadian twin sisters whose new album The Con gets better with each listening. They played to a full house ('XPN always calls it a "sell-out crowd," but I don't see how a free concert can "sell" out) and rocked hard and loud.
They played a lot of their new stuff and a couple of old songs and had plenty of pretty funny (and often pretty flaky) banter. NPR has the concert archived (though their website doesn't list everything they played), and I've got some photos from the show.
Tomorrow's free concert, another "sell-out," is Crowded House, with Joan as Police Woman opening, which should be pretty good. But next week's show - Rufus Wainwright and Neko Case - should be pretty great. I would suggest you get your free tickets for that one now, before they
sell out run out.
