Tegan and Sara The Riviera Theatre - Chicago, ILSara Quinn

They both can sing. They both can play the guitar. They both can play the piano. They both can write songs. Is there anything that identical twin sisters Tegan and Sara Quinn can’t do?! I’m not so sure there is… It seems like everyone these days is doing a cover of Rihanna’s “Umbrella” – either during their live show or on YouTube – and Tegan and Sara are no exception to the trend. It actually caught me off guard as I could barely recognize their version. My friend Tim had to make me stop and focus on what I was hearing from the stage and sure enough, after a moment or so, I could make out the infamous chorus and resounding “ella ella ella, eh eh eh.” Not many fans that I spoke to after the show were expecting the girls to play that song. Needless to say, it was reassuring that I wasn’t the only one who didn’t see that coming. Also surprising to many fans was the insane light show that accompanied Tegan and Sara during their 90-minute set. I guess some fans haven’t realized just how far Tegan and Sara have come in their career. They are now selling out The Riv in Chicago and can afford their very own light show on tour! I for one am very proud of them. The duo hailing from Canada ended the night with my personal favorite song of theirs “Back In Your Head” and I left the show feeling content and satisfied. More photos and the night’s set list after the jump…
