Reminiscent of its 2009 phenomenal line-up of performances by international mega-superstars Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend hits a home run again this year with a huge concert and program featuring one of today’s biggest music stars: pop sensation Tegan and Sara.
The iconic world-renown lesbian event — the original Dinah Shore Weekend — is celebrating its 24th Anniversary by upping up the volume more than a notch for its high-profiled party on Saturday night.
Keeping the festivities at the Palm Springs Convention Center, twin sisters Tegan and Sara will headline the famed soiree on Saturday, April 5, 2014.
Continuing their mission to become the biggest pop sensation out of Canada since Justin Bieber, Tegan and Sara have been on an unstoppable meteoric rise since the release of their seventh studio album dubbed “Heartthrob”, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200. The band’s lead single “Closer” has broken into the Top 20 on the pop charts, is currently on rotation on over 150 Top 40 radio nationwide, and week after week keeps a solid spot on the VH1’s Top 20 Countdown.
Canadian-born Tegan and Sara Quin have been lesbian cult favorites ever since they first grabbed attention as 15-year-olds. They are sisters, they are twins, they are both lesbian, and they make outstanding music. It’s no surprise they recently have been invited to perform “Closer” with Taylor Swift at one of her August Staples Center shows, were featured on NBC’s The Today Show on September 30th, and were handpicked by Dinah alumnus, Katy Perry, to perform at the “We Can Survive” benefit concert on October 23 at the Hollywood Bowl.
The band has just released a brand new track entitled “Shudder to Think” as part of the soundtrack for the Oscar-buzzing film “Dallas Buyer’s Club”, which premiered with RollingStone.com.
As ardent feminists and LGBTQ rights advocates, it’s only fitting the duo will bring their “Heartthrob” world tour to the largest lesbian event in the world: Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend. For more information on Club Skirts, visit www.thedinah.com.
