Today’s Reason To Drink

SP_TeganAndSara_byChrisBuckSo excited to see my girls tonight here at the Mercury Ballroom, and Saturday in Indy! Here’s the staffpick I wrote about the show tonight:

Tegan & Sara
Wednesday, May 7
Mercury Ballroom
611 S. Fourth St.
$43.50; 7:30 p.m.

Canadian twin sisters and indie rockers Tegan and Sara Quin have a way with words — words you’re likely to find tattooed on arms, backs and rib cages of their faithful followers. I just want back in your head. Where does the good go? I got so city girl on you. I was walking with a ghost. Their self-penned lyrics are quick and to the point, set to a catchy beat. They’re touring in support of their seventh studio album, Heartthrob, which landed the girls their highest first-week chart position ever. Some say their earlier stuff was better, while some argue their sound has matured. And most fans, like myself, just happily swallow whatever they’re dishing out. The duo will open for Katy Perry later this year, so a stop in at the Mercury Ballroom is certainly a catch. —Sara Havens
