Tegan and Sara, Chatham, Capitol Theatre, July 17

February 11, 2014

Very much like a teenager, when I discovered that Tegan and Sara were making a stop in Chatham (yes, Chatham) on their summer tour, I ended up pressing refresh over and over once tickets went on sale. I had my eye on the V.I.P. Meet & Greet tickets, but not so much to say hello — I do think I’ve grown out of that whole malarkey, but in order to give ’em a heads up about the comic that I’ve been toiling away at for over a year now.

I did get the fancypants tickets and everything kind of fell into place to allow Roisin and I to double-up a visit with my parents and the concert. But my somewhat impulsive buy wasn’t necessarily the best thought out excursion as I live about 12 hours away from Chatham. Semantics.

The Meet & Greet was kind of awkward, the line-up was filled with boasts and tears but I think the whole giving of the comic proposal scenario went well enough — no one’s sent and email to ask me to knock it off which lifted some weight off my shoulders. In a perfect world I’ll hopefully be able to post a bit more about the comic before the end of this year.

The setlist:

Drove Me Wild
Goodbye, Goodbye
I’m Not Your Hero
Back In Your Head
The Con
Walking With a Ghost
Hop A Plane
I Couldn’t Be Your Friend
I Was A Fool
Now I’m All Messed Up
Where Does The Good Go
Shock To Your System
How Come You Don’t Want Me
Feel It In My Bones
