UTG PHOTOS: Tegan and Sara (2/7/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Kellie Gannon, to photograph Tegan and Sara at the Masonic Auditorium in Cleveland on February 7, 2014.

I have to admit, I’ve had a girl crush on Tegan and Sara ever since I first heard “Walking With A Ghost” a decade ago. This killer track, from 2004′s So Jealous, ended up on countless mix CDs I made that coincided with my new driver’s license and newfound freedom to cruise around and blast whatever tunes I wanted.  That was ten years ago — fast forward to now and I was more than psyched …

Boston Calling 2014 Lineup

Brand New, Death Cab For Cutie, Modest Mouse Headlining Boston Calling

Last year Boston threw its first big music festival in quite some time — and they saw it pay off. Boston Calling Music Festival put on a two-day festival in May and September, both of which sold out, allowing them to bump their third installment (May 23 – 25, 2014) to three days.

Tonight they hid 10 vinyl records throughout the city with the lineup written on them, and the people who found them won free tickets to the festival. Thankfully someone already nabbed one and uploaded a photo, and it’s lookin’ pretty good.

The lineup listed is as follows …

Tegan And Sara Team Up With The Lonely Island For “Everything Is AWESOME!!!”

Sometimes you just need a peppy, positive song to get you through the afternoon. If you haven’t found yours yet today, let me direct your attention to “Everything Is AWESOME!!!” The collaboration between indie pop duo Tegan and Sara and goofball rappers The Lonely Island, which you can listen to right here, is so full of energy and thumping electronic beats that it might have you dancing in the halls of your office.

The song may not have the depth and nuance that Tegan and Sara fans have come to love in their music, but those aren’t exactly …

Tegan and Sara Cover Tears For Fears

With the help of producer/DJ Matthew Dear, the Canadian sister duo Tegan and Sara have recorded a cover of Tears For Fears’ “Pale Shelter.”

Tegan and Sara are no strangers to ’80s influenced hits, as shown on 2012′s Heartthrob, so tackling the 1983 single was a logical next step for the two.

“We have been heavily influenced by Tears For Fears’ impressive body of work and it was an honor to create a new version of one of our favorite songs. Matthew Dear immediately came to mind as an exciting collaborator and we were delighted when he said yes! …

Kriston McConnell’s ‘Best Of 2013′ In Music

When you’re listening to an album in February you may say to yourself, “THIS is my favorite album this year, definitely.” After that June comes around and you say, “No, THIS is my favorite album, hands down.” November rolls on by and you say, “Fuck all of those other albums, this is THE album of the year!” You think you have it all sorted out, then your editor asks you to put together a list of your favorite albums for the year. Well, shit.

2013 has been such a great year for music, and deciding which albums are “the best …

Tegan And Sara Perform Acoustic Version Of “Closer”

As if I didn’t need another reason to totally love this duo. Tegan And Sara partnered up with Keith Schneider and his band to record an acoustic version their hit single, “Closer,” from their most recent album, Heartthrob. The song itself is one of the best songs I think they’ve ever released, and hearing it sung acoustically just makes it that much better. I recommend checking it out, and you can watch them singing it by taking a look below the jump.
