For all you Tegan and Sara fans out there who may not have heard, there is going to be a new DVD about the singing duo! The Canadian cuties take us on an adventure through their international tour and concerts in their latest project, Get Along. The movies (there are three), also show their relationship as sisters and artists, on and off stage. If any of you have been to a Tegan and Sara show, you know how interactive they are with their audience. I was lucky enough to get to see the two perform a few songs, tell a few stories, and take questions from their fans at a record store in Orlando, FL last fall. That is kind of what the movie is like on a grander scale--a peek into their career over the last 12 years.
You can buy the deluxe cd/dvd package, which includes 3 posters, 2 digital tracks, and 2 digital bonus tracks as well as the DVD, on their website. The cd is made up of 15 songs performed live. You can pre-order the bundle at their site and buy the cd and dvd on iTunes and Amazon on November 15th. They are also holding screenings of the movie in select cities and the twins themselves will be making appearances at some of the cities, holding Q + A sessions with audience attendees.
