Tegan & Sara at The Tower Theater

A decade ago, sisters Tegan and Sara Quin released The Con, an energetic indie-pop album that didn't quite fit in with the Band of Horses and The Nationals of the day. Since then, they've built an inspiring career writing songs for those who feel different or left out. The LGBTQ activists and artists are celebrating the anniversary of The Con with a special release of covers featuring Paramore's Hayley Williams, Ryan Adams and more as well as a tour that comes to The Tower Theater in Upper Darby on November 10.
