Tegan and Sara will be co-hosting the mvtU Woodie Awards with rapper Machine Gun Kelly on March 14 in Austin. How there’s time for an awards show right smack in the middle of South by Southwest, we have no idea. But it’s happening, and the twin sisters are pretty pumped about it: “We couldn’t be more excited to be making our debut as co-hosts and nominees […] Wow! It’s a good thing they got Machine Gun Kelly to step in as our tri-host(?) because no one else would be able to get a word in edgewise.”

The Woodies honor the year’s best music as voted by college students. So, I guess nobody’s listening to Dave Matthews Band in the quad anymore? This year’s event will feature a string of performances, including Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, HAIM, Timeflies, Travi$ Scott and others.
