Getting intimate with a set of twins

Don’t underestimate the tiny twin sisters Tegan and Sara. They are giants in music as they proved with the huge turnout they drew at the Palladium earlier this year. They come back opening for Paramore at Verizon Theatre, but make a stop at Good Records for an intimate in-store appearance. Get there early and priority will be given to customers making a T&S purchase. We predict the store will fill up quickly.

DEETS: Good Records, 1808 Greenville Ave. 2:30 p.m. Free.

This kind of blues is ideal
The Blue Man Group comes to town with its innovative performance of music, comedy and whatever else they throw in the mix. With alien looks and complete silence, these blue men should blow you away.

DEETS: Winspear Opera House, 2403 Flora St. Sept. 19–26. $40–$150.

Concert notice: Good Records announces Tegan & Sara in-store performance in September

Tegan & Sara

Other than a Facebook udpate, there aren’t much more details at the moment, but Good Records just posted this:

Just found out that Tegan & Sara will be stopping by for an instore acoustic performance when they are in town with Paramore.

The duo plays with Paramore Sep. 10 at Verizon Theatre as part of the Honda Civic Tour. Tickets are already on sale. If it’s like Good Records’ other in-store shows, T & S will likely play the day of, but it could be an early gig. The show at Verizon is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. It’s a Friday, so you might have to beg the boss to let you start your weekend a little early. And if it’s packed anything like their show at the Palladium earlier this year, then plan on getting there early. But we’re speculating here. We’ll keep you posted when Good Records releases more deets.
