THE CON 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION!

Tegan & Sara are performing an acoustic set at Amoeba Hollywood in celebration of their new CD, The Con X: Covers. To attend this event, purchase The Con X: Covers CD in-store only at Amoeba Hollywood on Thursday, October 19th. Fans will also receive a limited edition autographed poster commemorating the show with purchase of the album. 1 ticket + poster per CD purchased, max 2 per person. Space is limited! In-store purchases only (no online/phone orders). PLEASE NOTE: Eventbrite tickets are not required for and do not guarantee admission to this event.

This special acoustic performance will be their only L.A. show besides their two sold out shows at The Theatre at Ace Hotel.

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Tegan and Sara’s classic 2007 album, The Con, Tegan and Sara release The Con X: Covers on October 20 via Warner Bros. Records (available a day early for the Amoeba Hollywood in-store event!). The new album features 14 of Tegan and Sara’s favorite artists, each interpreting a song from the original album.

Tegan says, “As the 10th anniversary of The Con approached, Sara and I started to brainstorm meaningful ways to celebrate what was easily one of our most important records. Almost immediately we established that a tour playing all 14 songs in a more intimate and stripped-down arrangement would be memorable for our diehard fans. But we also wanted a companion piece that would live on past the anniversary, hence The Con X: Covers album was born.

“We wanted the proceeds to go to our recently launched Tegan and Sara Foundation, which raises money for self-identified women and girls in the LGBTQ community. With that intention set, we asked 14 artists who were either outspoken allies of the LGTBQ community or LGBTQ themselves to each cover a song from The Con, in any fashion they saw fit. All the artists agreed to donate their time and energy to the project and their labels all agreed to waive their fees as well. We are beyond grateful for the contributions of each artist, and we hope fans of The Con will be moved by their interpretations.
