Tegan Quin To Play at Housing Works Fundraiser

Singer/songwriter Tegan Quin from acclaimed Canadian band Tegan and Sara and author Augusten Burroughs (Running With Scissors; A Wolf at the Table) will co-headline SPIN.com's Liner Notes, an event at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe on Thursday, Sep 4, 2008.


Singer/songwriter Tegan Quin from acclaimed Canadian band Tegan and Sara and author Augusten Burroughs (Running With Scissors; A Wolf at the Table) will co-headline SPIN.com's Liner Notes, an event at Housing Works Bookstore Café on Thursday, Sep 4, 2008 to celebrate the cross-pollination of music and literature and raise funds for Housing Works, a New York-based non-profit organization. The event, presented by Spin magazine and the SPIN.com Book Club, will also feature a performance by musician Colin Frangicetto (Circa Survive) and readings by musicians Elizabeth Seward (Spelling & Grammar) and Stephen Christian (Anberlin), who recently published his first novel, TheOrphaned Anythings. The performances will be juxtaposed to highlight the effects the written word and music have over each other, and will be particularly special as Tegan recently penned a song for the audio edition of Augusten's latest book, A Wolf at the Table.  This event, 'Liner Notes,' an Evening of Music and Literature, will raise money for HIV/AIDS research while celebrating SPIN.Com's Book Club. 

"Like a scene out of a movie, earlier this year Augusten Burroughs asked if Sara or I might contribute a song to the audio version of his latest masterpiece (he didn't use that word, I did)," Tegan says. "I of course was honored and terrified to embark on trying to write a song for someone other than me. I am typically a narcissist and have never written about anything or anyone but myself.  Lucky for me Augusten loved it and I am so excited to share the stage with him!"
 
Tegan Quin is exactly one half of the songwriting duo know as Tegan and Sara, whose latest album, The Con (Vapor/Sire), has received worldwide critical acclaim, including a four-star review in Spin. Along with her twin sister Sara, she has toured the world over and appeared on such major U.S. television shows at The Tonight Show and Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
