On last night’s Tonight Show, Tegan And Sara showed up to give a spirited rendition of “Closer,” the dance-pop hit from their very good new album Heartthrob. On the show, Tegan, Sara, and their backing band all made a clear and noise-free visual statement in favor of marriage equality, wearing pink stage clothes and displaying a big equal sign on the drums. They also had enough fun playing the song to expunge any memories of LL Cool J talking about “Accidental Racist,” something that happened earlier in the show. Watch it below.
Heartthrob is out now on Sire.
