Naaahhrrugah! Tegan & Sara are selling a limited edition (1,500 copies) CD at their shows of The Con Demos. That is both good news – because I love good demos and I love Tegan & Sara – and bad news, since it is only being sold at shows. And pretty much every T&S fan in the country is asking people who are attending shows to pick one up for them, so, there won’t be enough for everyone, clearly. They’ve sold about 300 so far. The first appeared on ebay for $100 — a 10x markup over the $10 price — and the next is climbing past $50. My hope is that CD-Rs will start to appear for cheap, or that flac files will be traded… (I mean ideally, would be perfect if T&S pressed up another thousand and sold them via their website, but, initially they said 1,500 is all there will be and when they’re gone, they’re gone).
At least they exist. I’m sure I’ll get one eventually.
In unrelated news, I plan to start using my stationary exercise bike this week, albeit on a really easy setting.
