No Beyonce? Solange for your birthday!

SolangeFor a gay’s 29th 25th special day there’s only one thing he could possibly want: Beyonce. That hair, those moves, that strut. Unfortunately for me, Diva’s not in town for February 19, 2013. So I did what any self-respecting/desperate gay would do, I bought tickets to go see Solange. That’s right, Daddy’s getting close to the Knowles’ DNA tonight at Paradise Rock Club in Boston.

Now Solange is certainly no Mrs. Carter, but to give credit where credit’s due she has established herself as more relevant than Michelle Williams in recent years. So girl should be proud.

No, all kidding aside, Solange has actually developed quite the delicious indie music career. And if you don’t believe me then check out her 2008 songs I Decided and Sandcastle Disco for yourself. In fact, I’m actually super excited to see the younger Knowles tonight, especially to hear her perform new single, Losing You, which was featured on the season 2 premiere of (D-Nast’s new favorite show) HBO’s Girls.

Musically, I’m a Lesbian

It’s no secret that I have the musical tastes of any American lesbian. I love me some Sara Bareilles, Rachel Yamagata, Colbie Caillat, Kelly Clarkson. The only music lesbians and I differ on is Nickleback. God they’re awful!

Anyways, the real reason for this post is tonight I’m seeing live the mother load of all lesbian music: Tegan and Sara! Of course I’ve seen them live before… I mean what kind of faux lesbian would I be had I not? But it doesn’t mean I’m any less giddy to see those chicas in action again. Especially since their new album, Heartthrob, drops on Tuesday. I’m already digging first track, Closer, and I can’t wait to hear more juicy love tunes tonight. 5 hours to go!

This vid of my favorite song I Know I Know I Know will have to tie me over till then. Enjoy!
