TD Music Café kicks off the summer concert season.
Tegan and Sara
TD Music Live kicked off the summer concert season with its first ever TD Music Café, Monday. Celebrating 11 years of supporting live music, the free outdoor pop-up concert series featured JUNO award winning duo, Tegan & Sara.
The legendary Roy Thomson Hall played host to the pop-up concert, with its patio converted into a very green Music Café. Offering free entry, the café featured performances by local community artists alongside headliners, Tegan & Sara. The duo played a lively set featuring songs from their breakthrough album, Heartthrob. Fans enthusiastically sang along to hits “Closer” and "Goodbye, Goodbye”, while enjoying the sunshine and Italian sodas at the café. Jian Ghomeshi of CBC’s talk radio program Q, MC’d the festivities, including a sit down Q&A with the sisters following their performance.
In addition, the event was proud to support MusiCounts, a community organization that provides underprivileged youth access to music education, which received a 25k donation from the Quin twins.
The summer concert season includes the TD Echo Beach concert series, TD Toronto Jazz Festival and Live Nation concert series.
