speaking of female cops, this has absolutely no ig content whatsoever, but i
was reminded of this by this post.  a very funny story that took place while
i was waiting outside of the bottom line in nyc to go see the ig $10 tour
shows there.  i was standing there talking to this woman, when this woman cop
walks down the street towards us.  as she passes us, this woman says, not
loudly, but loud enough for this woman cop to hear, "hey pig!!!"  the cop
then quickly wheeled around, grabbed this woman, threw her up against the
wall, cuffed her, and dragged her away.  i was completely stunned.  i said
nothing and did nothing.  i was shocked and scared.  fifteen minutes later,
the woman i was talking to came back and the cop was with her in civilian
clothes.  it turns out that they were a couple and enjoy pulling that stunt
in public places just to freak people out.  i know some of you might think
this is all very poor humor, but it was funny at the time.  chalk it up as
one of those "guess you had to be there" kind of things.  sorry for the
worthless and completely irrelevant post.  hopefully, it brought a grin and a
chuckle to some.

peace

subject:      newport !!!!!!

what can i say ???

ig rocked newport !!!!!!!  the girls were great !!!!!

set list was as follows:

three hits
least complicated
hand me downs
power of two
tried to be true
ghost
it won't take long (?) w/ferron
don't think twice it's alright w/joan baez
pusing the needle too far
love's recovery
down by the river
galileo
bury my heart at wounded knee (w/jimmy descant)
closer to fine (w/everybody --> joan baez, ferron, ani difranco, luka bloom,
mary black ... plus jimmy, sara lee, jerry marotta and jane scarpentoni)

they we're incredible as usual !!!! amy goofed a line at the beginning of
"down by the river" - and said 'oh fuck' - then she commented at the end of
the song of how they were in the dressing room and said - "oh we don't need
to practice that one" (amy's comment - "yeah right") ... then emily goofed a
line in galileo (although i believe this one was on purpose!!!) ... "bury my
heart at wounded knee" was amazing live - they really blew everyone away !!!

amy also said that the live cd will be called "1200 curfews", because they
always play longer than they're supposed to ...

they both looked great - in very good moods - hyper and everything ... amy
was bopping around the stage as she used to and emily was tearing it up on
her guitar solos !!!!

they went on around 5:50 pm (not raining just then) and played until
soemwhere around 7:10 pm (raining again !!!!) ....

i'm sure there will be a few more reviews so that's all for now !!!!

peace ...

subject:      newport was a dud. not!!!

i guess i am the first person to post a review of the newport folk festival.
i have two words to describe this experience.

it sucked!!!

two days of

two days of muisc, fun, & peace pops was really two days in hell, featuring
rude and annoying people, disgusting and overpriced food, and uninspired and
untalented musicians.  even ig was a complete bore/snore.  it was a miserable
weekend with miserable weather and miserable people and miserable muisc
and...

...if you believe all of this, i have a piece of beachfront property on three
mile island to sell you.  in other words...

it raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawked!!!!!!!

this was my very first nff, and i was not disappointed.  thank yous have to
go out to my good frineds lauree and jackie for convincing me to go.  this
was one of the best weekends i have had in a long, long time.  the music was
phenomenal.  although there were a few acts i could have done without (i.e.
weir/wasserman, mary black, and luka bloom) overall, it was a wonderful two
days.  i am not going to go into much detail, because i don't want to spend
the entire day writing this, but i could though.  saturday started with a
relatively unknown band called the laura love band.  they were definitely the
surprise treat of the weekend.  their style was described as afro-celtic,
whatever that menas, and this group was pumped!  they had the highest energy
levels of any of the groups that day, which is not to say that the rest of
the day was a downer, but that these guys were really exciting.  the lead
singer played bass, and she played it with a combination of skill and energy
that i have rarely ever seen, and she danced all over the place.  they really
got the day strted on an up note.  other people who were good on this day
were patty larkin (although her set was way too short), victoria williams,
although most of the people that i talked to spoke very negatively about her
(the thing about vw is, she is hyped as someone who is very deep and
meaningful, but when it comes down to it, she isn't but i think that she is a
lot of fun with a very quirky voice), the jayhawks were also good although
their set was a bit long, and mary-chapin carpenter was very good.  this was
the first time i had ever heard her live, and i enjoyed it immensely.  my
favorite act of the day overall was john hiatt.  i had never listened to him
before, and did not know what to expect, but he really impressed me.  playing
solo acoustic, which was pretty rare this weekend, which is interesting
considering that this was a "folk" festival.  but his voice and guitar
projected extremely well throughout the crowd.  if anybody on the list knows
anything about this guy, please e-mail me privately or not with some
recommendations for cds of his to get.  this guy is someone i can really get
into.  his latest hit, "perfectly good guitar"  which is about his disdain
for musicians who smash their guitars was my favorite of the night.  i guess
he never saw the liner notes to swamp ophelia, or maybe he did.

day two was a much mellower day with more of the acts being of the folkier,
acoustic style.  catie curtis, one of the early acts was very good.  good
writing, funny, with a great voice.  keb mo was a great bluesman.  ani
difrancorawked!  why she went on so early is beyond me.  she was one of the
most popular acts on the bill.  at least that's what the crowd response
showed.  i have only listened to her a few times on cds, but her recorded
music does not compare to her live performance.  she was obviously touched by
the support the crowd gave her and her playing exhibited the emotions that
she was feeling and she put on one of the best performances of the day.
ferron and joan baez, the two matriarchs of folk music, as amy described them
put on great performances.  i don't know ferron's stuff, so i can't go onto
much detail, but she was wonderful.  a couple of years ago, i saw joan baez
for the first time when ig was opening for her.  i was there to see ig, but i
stayed to see her and enjoyed it immensely.  most notable for me on this day
was her rendition of ig's "welcome me" and bob dylan's "forever young".  she
made both of these songs her own and passed my test with flying colors.
now... onto the main event.

this was by far the best ig concert i have seen in a long time.  up until
this point, after a few mediocre shows of late, i thought they might be
losing their steam.  these fears were compounded when they started off a
littleslowly with traditional standards like three hits, least complicated,
and ghost, all very good songs, but songs that i had heard time and time
again over the last 15 shows i saw during the so tour.  i was looking for
something special, and i got it.  first they brought ferron onstage and
performed her song, that will be on the spirit of 73 album coming out ???. i
had never heard this song before, but i fell in love instantly.  it reminded
me a little bit of disappear fear's "washington work song", but ferron is a
world-class writer, and ig has always proved that they are extremely skilled
at taking someone else's work and making it truly specxial in their own way.
ferron's presence and participation in the song was an added bonus.
following this, they brought joan baez out to perform bob dylan's don't think
twice it's alright which they have played several times in the past, but have
yet to tire of it.  this is my favorite dylan song, and to finally hear my
favorite musicans perform it live was really a special moment.  this song as
well as joan's rendition of welcome me will be on her new live album ring
them bells.  after these performances, i intend to get this album as well as
spirit of 73 just for these few songs, although i sure that there is a number
of other good tracks as well, even if there aren't, these will be good enough
for me.  after this, they went back to their own material for pushing the
needle too far and love's recovery, two of my all-time favorite ig songs.  in
fact, i intend to have love's recovery as my wedding song, whenever i get
married, if i ever get married, so if there are any women reading this that
feel the same way aboout this song, you may want to e-mail me.  i apologize
for turning this post into a personal ad, but it seemed to fit, sort of.
they closed the set with galileo and then came back for their encore with
"bury my heart at wounded knee" and closer to fine.  everyone here already
knows how i feel about ctf, so i won't say anything and just talk about
bmhawk.  i am looking forward to getting the cover tape, because if the
version on the tape is as good as this performance, this will go down as one
of their greatest covers.  they show a great emotional attachment to the song
and perform it with a lot of feeling.  while the lyrics are a bit on the
simple side, that does not detract from the song at all.  inh fact, the
simplicity of the song, lends itself well to the honesty and passion
displayed by ig in their performance of this song.it is amazing.  after
rambling on for as long as i have, i still feel that the weekend can best be
described with two words.

it raaaaaaaaaaaaaaawked!!!!!!!!!

sorry

sorry for the length.  it will be interesting to see how many people just
looked at the first paragraph, and responded with wild flaming tirades.  oh
well.

peace pops

subject:      newport

  i had a wonderful time, but who invited erin?!?

  despite the off and on showers, the cold, and the rain i really did
have a wonderful time at newport on sunday.  i missed the list meet
(and kevin connolly, katie curtis, and ani *grrrrr*) because we didn't
arrive at fort addams until ~ 1pm.  although we were forced to the far
back, we had a good view straight on at the stage, next to the ft.
addams sign facing the ocean and the bridge.

  ok the music.

  farron was good, but to be honest, i was in line getting lots of
coffee so i really wasn't in a great position to see her set.

   this was the first time i heard luka bloom and i was very very
impressed, espicially with his guitar work.  he had just written a
song about france testing nukes in the south pacific that was quite
moving.  i appreciated his comment about americans being of heartier
stock than he gave them credit for when he first saw the storm
a-brewin'.

   mary black was well mary black.  what a voice!

   is it just me or has joan baez's voice gotten better through the
years?  it may be that the first time i ever heard her was on scratchy
albums, but she was smooth yesterday.  she covered "welcome me" in the
show and also did a duet with mary black (the song that is on the new
joan baez release--joan fans help me here).  then she pulled two
personal favorites of mine.  she closed with "the boxer" (paul simon)
and screwed up a lyric.  she looked at herself as if she was saying
"i've sung that song how many times since the early 70's".  it was
quite amuzing.  she also snuck in "forever young" which i believe was
origianally written by dylan.  i need to explain this, please indulge
me.  i spent grades 1-8 at st. joseph's grade school in wauwautosa,
wi.  i hated it with a passion, i was the kid that everyone picked
on--every class has one or two.  our class sang "forever young," with
joan baez helping us along, to our families at graduation.  it was at
that moment that i realized despite myself i had become friends with
many of these people.  i quickly lost track of them after graduation.
when i heard joan sing, i was amazed i remembered the words--i found
myself back in 1982 and it was quite the experience.

        ok the now vacationing indigo girls who simply rocked.  i'll
leave the fashion report to someone whom was closer.  set list as best
as i can remember:

                three hits
                least complicated
                tried to be true
                power of two
                (the song on spirit of '73) w/ farron
                don't think twice, its alright w/ joan baez
                ghost
                love's recovery
                galileo
                ----
                bury my heart at wounded knee
                closer to fine w/ everyone

  also played, but i forgot where they fit in:

                pushing the needle too far
                (song about a river that i didn't recognize)

if someone has a set list real can you correct this?  i know there are
errors.

    as i said the show rocked, they had some sound problem with em's
electric in "tried to be true" but other than that.  the harmonies on
"don't think twice..."  were exceptional!  it was the first time for
me to hear "bury my heart..." and i loved the power of both the lyrics
and the delivery.  it was the first time i've heard them do love's
recovery in concert and that song is very special to me so that was
quite a treat.  for ghost, the entire crowd fell silent.

    all in all, the girls were there usual selves, full of energy and
self-depricating humor. =)  i wish them a wonderful vacation and
non-touring season!

    btw, if anyone booted this can i please please get a copy =).

i know this topic has already been somewhat covered, but i didn't really pay

about who else is playing on the tour and if they really are going to be playing
in buffalo at pilot field (a baseball stadium--unusual choice).  she called
friday about tickets and the woman at the stadium said there was going to be a

subject:      newport 1995 (kinda long)

i'm kinda surprised that no one has posted any reviews of this yet.
but, come to think of it, maybe they're in the pipeline as i dont
think i ahve seen much ig stuff today at all.

overall:  another fabulous weekend.  it rained a little on sunday
but not nearly as bad as it was in 1992.  damp, a bit wet, but
quite manageable.  luka bloom and mary black, both from ireland,
commented that they didnt think americans would hold up in weather
like that, which they are accustomed to seeing.  but, the crowd was
enthusiastic and very much there.

highlights for me:  on saturday, patty larkin and mary chapin
carpenter, separate and together.  mcc came out to harmonize on
patty's song "i told him my dog wouldnt run", which she did
onpatty's last album, and they closed the set with a rousing "these
boots are made for walking".  mcc's set itself was also grweat...
mcc looked great and was clearly having a lot of fun.  i got
in too late to hear the new voices set, though i was told both
artists were good.  i was just coming in and getting settled during
terrence simien's set, but i wish i had seen more of that.

on sunday....my what a day.  despite the wet the music couldnt be
beat.  ani difranco totally rocked the place.  i had never seen
her live before, and even though i had a great vantage point for
pics, she was moving so fast i have no idea what i may have gotten.
ferron sounded fabulous, especially with the accompanying electric cello
(and second guitar player).  luka bloom gave a solid set.  mary
black played some of my favorites of her stuff.  joan baez...still
in fine form.  mary black came out and sang "ring them bells" (from
joan's upcoming album) with her and it was great. my highlight for this
set was her singing "suzanne", a leonard cohen song whihc i had only
previously heard by judy collins.  i hadnt heard it in years but joan's
version was classic.

and of course, indigo girls.  both of them were clearly having a
lot of fun.  emily was so completely into her guitar playing that she
was defintely at a higher level.  i've never heard her sound that good.
ferron came out and did one of her songs with them (dont know which
one it was), and joan did "dont think twice it's alright (also on
te upcoming album) with them.  jimmy james came out for "bury my heart at
wounded knee"--floored me.  i really hope it's on the live album.
and the grand finale was "closer to fine" with ferron, luka bloom,
joan baez, ani difranco, and mary black joining them.  you didnt
notice the rain during this set.

amy said the live album "out this fall" would be called "1200
curfews" because they were always playing longer than they were
supposed to...

if nayone taped any of this weekend..there are several sets i would
be really interested in getting.  i saw a few list members scattered
throughout the wekend.  i got the lsit meet on sunday and found
only phil and lorinda, new faces to put to names  :)  it was another
good year at newport...now if we can only get the weather booked
better....

well, you all knew it was coming. you _knew_ i had to do it. so here it
is...my comments on newport. (phil, i know you're rolling your eyes and
shaking your head right now. *grin*)

three words:

    oh

                my

                            god!!!!!


we laughed, we sang, we danced, we swam (on both days, but on sunday we didn't
actually ever go down to the waterfront...we were lucky enough to get our
water delivered to us from the sky.) the list meets didn't really happen as i
had hoped. only about 4 people found our little sign on the first day, and on
the second day i of course forgot the sign. amazingly enough, though, we did
still find some people. great to finally meet you all! as for the fest...

it was amazing, incredible etc etc etc. i have to echo some of what bert said
here (hi bert!): the laura love band (sp?) totally rawked. it was the first
show of the weekend, and they totally blew us away. i simply _had_ to sign her
mailing list and get her to sign my tic. (couldn't buy a cd at the time- i
only had $3.) will later i promise!! others of note: patty larkin (cool), john
hiat (cool) mcc (first time i'd seen her live, really cool and we all had a
blast dancing), the zydeco band (can't remember the name, someone help me out
here...i loved it!), catie curtis (cool, and i met her too.), ani defranco (of
course, but unfortunately i missed most of her set because i was getting catie
to sign my cd), ferron (oh wow!), luka bloom, (totally kickass!), joan
(definitely!), and i know i'm forgetting some others that i really liked
because i don't have the program with me.

now on to ig...i didn't exactly get to meet them, but we gave them each a
t-shirt that my friend and i made for them. amy's was an am chord, and emily's
was an em chord, and each design consisted of the chord and chord name with a
stylized staff and treble cleff. i think they looked pretty cool, and judging
by em's reaction, she thought so too. i talked a security gaurd into handing
it to her, and from about 20 feet away i received a series of very
enthusiastic waves, thumbs up signs, and "thank you's" along with the biggest
smile you ever saw. unfortunately, i didn't get to see amy's reaction to hers
because she had walked around the back of the stage when she got hers. if
anyone ever sees them wearing them, you gotta let me know! shameless plug to
follow: if anyone is interested in these t-shirts email me privately.
personally i think they're really cool. i probably deserve a flame for that,
but such is life.

now on to the ig set...rain? what rain? i didn't notice any rain. all i
noticed was amy and emily up on stage giving their fairwell-for-a-year-and-a-
half-or-so concert. wow. it was truly wonderful. you've already heard the
setlist so i won't go into that. the song they did with ferron was truly
amazing...all 57 verses of it. (which is good, i never wanted it to end.) then
the one with "their other matriarch," joan baez who "agreed to stand up and
wear a shoulder strap for this one."  joan had fun with that one. after amy's
line "when you call out my name..." joan filled in with a grin,
"aaaaammmmmyyyy" highly amusing stuff. maybe you hadda be there. "down by the
river" is one of my faves, and amy's little boo boo at the beginning made it
one for the records. bmhawk was drop dead amazing. jerry sang along too after
amy's, "what do ya got to say jerry?" and ctf with everybody included quite an
amusing and original little penny whistle solo by...who? anyone? ok, that's it
for my concert highlights.

as my new guitar case sticker says: "folkisgruven" with the umlaut over the
"u" but my keyboard doesn't speak german.

subject:      new atlanta artists mailing list? (nigc)

i am writing to explore the subject of an atlanta artists mailing list.  it
seems to me that there is sufficient discussion of the atlanta music scene
(viva la diva, millan and kenzie, caroline aiken, et al) to warrant its own
list.  such a list would attempt to provide information about the touring
schedules and album releases of these artists, as well as other information
about the music scene in atlanta.

please send feedback about the idea of such a list to the following address:

atlartists@aol.com

i look forward to hearing from you soon!

peace,

barbara (future listmistress??)

woo woo.  i don't know why anyone with any possible way to get to newport
would ever possible find an excuse not to go.  for the second year in a
row i had an absolutely unforgettable weekend.  great company for the
trip, great music, and well, semi-great weather....
        day 1:  laura love was one to fall for... afro-celtic may be
about the last thing i expected to hear from a girl who told us she was
from nebraska, but she was wonderful anyway... check this woman out if at
all possible, y'all.
        bert swam in the water.  i found fun rocks.  we watched people
trip on this tiny dip in the sidewalk again and again.  falafel is always
fun to eat.  i didn't really dislike anyone's music saturday, but laura
love was honestly the only show stopper for me all day.  john hiatt and
mcc were a lot of fun tho -- we danced to mcc like total fools.  two
girls were showing me how to do some africa tribal dance to her.  i
showed them how to charleston. sleeping in the car (a little honda civic)
saturday nite becuase of a leaky tent and too much rain was quite a way
to prep for day two.
        day 2:  everyone's set was way too short, except maybe for the
subdudes, who i could have done without.  ani blew newport away.  kevin
connely made me cry with his song called didn't mean.  luka bloom was
just way too fun... great stage presence.  actually, mary black didn't
thrill me too much, but she does have a great voice...  ferron should
never ever stop playing music.  she should just stop playing 40 minute
ballads...  oh well, these things can't be helped....  joan baez was
such a performer... her backing band was really good -- 'specially the
guitarist...  i want to write more about the musicians, but they were
just too good.
        ig just had a great time...  tried to be true has never been a
fave of mine, but em was stepping away from her usual guitar work and the
song was just wonderfully arranged...  the girls should change things up
like that a lot more often -- really brought a smile to my face...  i'm
not sure if they did love's recovery (no, i won't marry you bert,
wonderful tho' you are) just to get the crowd to yell at the rain soaked
line, but it was fun to hear anyway.  i was hoping for some more dancy
stuff like chickenman and touch me fall, or joking or what not but you
can't have everything.  and finlandia was on the set list and they didn't
do it, argghh...  was funny to see the reactions of all the obsessed
groupie people scrabbling for the guitar picks that jimmmy threw when i
just walked up to the fence and asked for the set list and got it.  one
girl offered me money for it.  groupie-dom is gross. i may be obsessed,
but come on.
        oh well -- i loved every minute of it and won't miss it next year
for the world.  anyone have kevin connely guitar chords?  take care
all.... phil

subject:      nff: a message from cloud nine ... and a great story :) ---long

wow.  wow.  wow.  ............wow wow wow!!!!   completely, totally,
incrediblly, and in all other ways awesome!!!

this was my first time seeing the girls...and man oh man am i glad i made the
treck from dc!!  they didn't live up to my expectations.....they totally blew
them out of the water!!!  (can you tell i'm a _little_ excited?)

before i begin...a disclaimer:  i'm sorry, but this is going to be long, i'm
sure, even when i try to condense and save stuff for later.  but believe me,
i caught some great details, and you'll be glad when you've hung in there and
read it all.........especially what i'm gonna say in the end!!!  i guarantee
it'll leave you w/ a smile on your face. :)

okay, first...i could go into details about the fest, b/c it was awesome, but
i'm sure others will, and i might do that *later* ('cause i do have some
_really_ neat nigc to share).  i will, however, say that i waited at the
gates from 6:30 am...through the rain w/ nothing but garbage bags covering
me...and it was worth every minute of it! (who said it was going to be 80*
and clear???)   i got us great seats--about second "tarp" back and one "tarp"
to the left of exact center!!  so we saw every expression, every glitch...it
was great!  also, ani difranco was electric (not w/ guitar--she played
acoustic)! very impressive!!!  very live!!!--amazing guitarist.

they were, in a word, phenomenal.  really.  emily, in particular, was in a
_really_ good mood!  :)  she, i think, was really impressed w/ the their
fans' loyalty and enthusiasm despite the otherwise crappy conditions--the
nasty rain.  she kept saying things like, "you all are beautiful!" and stuff
like that =)  we think they even changed their set list to accomodate the
conditions...ie, they played "love's recovery"!..."though it's storming out,
..."    it was really great, b/c she would get this really cute smirk on her
face every time she sang that line :)  she was really smiley in general, much
to my (and i'm sure others') pleasure. =)

the set list was jam-packed with fired-up content!  jumping around in my
descriptions, let me relay a few memorable moments...when they played "down
by the river" (by dylan, b/c some were wondering), the first time they came
to a guitar fill, like right after the first verse, b4 the chorus, emily went
crazy and turned to
amy while jamming, like to say "this is awesome!!"  --with her expression,
anyway, you know?  she got all bent over her guitar, said something to amy
with a reeeaally big smile, and got that scrunchy face that she gets when
she's all excited...it was __really__ cute. :)

and also on that song, as i see someone else already elaborated on, when amy
screwed up the first line and said, "oh, fuck..."  as she backed away, it was
_really_, __really__ cute!!  --because she got all embarrassed, you know,
like her pride was hurt, and emily had to kinda' nudge her on, all while she
and sarah and jerry kept playing.

as far as dress is concerned:  amy in jeans and a black t-shirt w/some design
i couldn't make out...although i was close enough, if i had the wits about me
to try.  (some young girls right next to me kept screaming in their
adolescent, high-pitched voices, "we love your shirt, amy!" )
btw, when they finally came up to play, we all were scwooshed to the front,
and i was second person from the rope for a while, eventually getting front
and center!!  so, my reason for telling this is b/c i got some great
pictures...even though they _were_ with a disposable camera (w/o zoom! =(  )
.  so...when i get 'em, i'll let y'all know how they turned out :)


[a little side story:  i brought a good camera w/ good zoom, and film, and it
decided to not work...naturally, i panicked.  big time.  i said, "i'll be
d_mned if i i've come all this way and have this opportunity and don't get
the pictures!"  so...i found a friend, we took a ferry to the mainland,
bought our disposable cams, caught the ferry back, and were set!  just
thought some one _might_ possibly get a chuckle out of that kind of
psycho-determination! :)  ]

okay, back to the girls (sorry i digress a lot)... i didn't really pay
attention, but i think amy had chucks on (shoes) , but i'm not sure.  her
hair was pretty long, which i wasn't expecting, like from their "indigo
girls" and "nis" period.  but i liked it, personally.  except for the fact
that it obscures her face too much when she gets to rockin' w/ her guitar and
throws her head down and all around!  which is unfortunate, 'cause she really
is cute when she's smiling in particular :)  she's got those "bright eyes",
you know?

as for em, it was jeans as well, a blue and white horizontally-striped shirt,
and, again, i didn't pay attention to the shoes...anyone??  as deanna said
the sat nite b4 (i'll tell you why later...he-he!), emily has lost a lot of
weight, and she really does look good. it makes me happy that a she probably
feels better about herself, physically, now. =)

some other memorable moments:  during galileo, at some point in the first
verse, or i think, the first chorus, emily stopped singing and leaned over to
the crowd, sort of with this look of casual amazement, like as if she
couldn't believe we knew *every*single*word* and were all so vocal!  of
coarse...!  =)  she seemed very pleased, indeed, and got that big ol' smile
again.  also of particular note on that song, amy was bee-boppin' around like
it was the last time they would ever play it!! (which isn't too far from the
truth, unfortunately =( ...at least not for a long, way too long time)

amy was _powerful_ on "bury my heart..."  i'll add more details later, but
now...the feature presentation of this way-too-long post...my story.  (deanna
and kris said i could have the honors)  :

ok...so it's saturday night, we're walkin' around the streets of newport,
we've just spent half the day in the car......we'd been asking all around to
see if anyone knew what time the gates to the *park* opened (as opposed to
the gates to the fest, which we got way too much info on! :)  ).  so, we're
walkin' along on this sidewalk, not really anyone else right by us, and we
see this rent-a-cop and decide he might know, so we asked.  just as he was
saying the same old 'i don't really know' stuff, who should be walking
towards us, but emily...as in saliers!!!  i was one of us facing her most
directly, and when i first saw her, the split-second thought that first
crossed my confused mind was, "gosh, that person really looks like emily
saliers".  before that thought could even get across my mind, i realized that
it **was** emily saliers!!

as you can imagine, i was completely blown away.  here i was, the one who'd
never seen them before, in *any* context, and *i* had the privelege of
running into emily on the streets of newport (i just *love* the way that
sounds!)!  you'd think it'd be the person who's seen them fifty times, or
something, but no...much to my gratification!  =)

so, anyway, she was just truckin' along, heading right toward us.  she was
wearing jeans, an orange-ish and white kinda striped shirt, and construction
boots--i *did* catch what shoes whe was wearing this time!  she looked at us,
just 'cause we were kind of in her line of vision, and just a few feet before
she got to us, she turns into this store and goes right up to the counter,
and it seems she's just shootin' the breeze w/ this store clerk!  (i don't
know if he know who he was talking  to, but if he didn't...)
we didn't make any faces to embarrass her or ourselves, or anything, although
i was freaking out inside!  i just sorta stopped talking to the cop and
deanna had to cut in and explain, which she did, very calmly and
nonchalantly. (!!!)

we'd been looking (for deanna) for places selling sweatshirts, as it was a
bordering-on-chilly night.  and so, as i stood there, dumbfounded, the two of
them were like, "well, we _are_ looking for a sweatshirt..." which the store
obviously had.  all i could say is, "yeah, yeah, yeah..."  and "i can't
believe it.  i can't believe it!"
so we stroll in, oh-so-smoothly...d's looking at their stuff, kris is
pretending to look at their stuff, and i make no qualms about it:  i'm
practically hiding behind the racks and sneeking peeks. no, more like
staring...though only b/c her back was turned to us...i was "cool" as far as
she knew...if only she knew!!  ha-ha-ha!!  one thing: it was *so*wierd*
hearing her voice in person, of coarse being just like it sounds recorded:
crystal & smooth...beautiful!!!

so, then, kris comes over to me and kinda cowers behing the rack w/
me...inconspicuously, of coarse...after all, we were just looking for
sweatshirts, right?  :)  and she says, "well, she looks like someone who
might know" with a muffled chuckle.  see, that had been our line for the
night, b/c every time we saw someone w/ lawn chairs and other such fest
stuff, we said that line to each other, and then we'd approach them w/ our
question.

so then, i got all excited, b/c it was an excuse to talk to her w/o being
cheesy!  i wouldn't have been like, "oh, emily!!  can i have your
autograph?!?" and, in reality, i actually thought she might know.  of coarse,
i wasn't thinking, as deanna pointed the obvious out later, that she'd
probably arrive in some back entrance or whatever, and would have no reason
to know such info!  but as of the moment, it seemed logical enough to me.  :)


so, just as she's leaving the store, i come up behind her and say, "excuse
me, do you know when the gates to the festival open?" (which wasn't even the
right question.  it was the *park* we were wondering about)  of coarse, i had
a *huge* grin on my face...i couldn't help it!  but i did say it casually and
with a little perplexity in my tone of voice, if you know what i mean, so it
sounded innocent enough.

after i said, "excuse me," she turned around after a little delay, as if she
just wasn't expecting it to be addressing her (how humble!...=)...).  i was
freaking out.  direct eye contact. the inquiring look, you know, with
eyebrows raised. some two feet away.
     okay, this little part's for fellow emily-people, so if you aren't and
don't want to           roll your eyes, just skip to the next paragraph.  but
if you are, enjoy, 'cause i'm         not trying to be corny here, honestly:
she really was beautiful, just as much so up close.  her eyes had light in
                 them, literally, and her coloring was great--a little tan.
her strawberry-blond              hair was...well, strawberry blond.  but it
was gorgeous and vibrant!  and              here i was, holding for a short
time the full attentions of this, of emily              saliers. i was to
dwell on this strip of memory for a time to come!

okay, sorry if anyone read that anyway and thinks i'm a complete cheeseball.
all i know is that if this had happened to someone else, i would have wanted
_all_ the details. so this goes out to all of you like me!  :)

so, getting back to the story, she stopped, and turned, and i said my line
("do you know when the gates to the festival open?"), and she got this cute,
easy, look on her face.  'cause it was obvious i knew who i was talking to :)
and with a big grin, a relaxed manner, and through her laugh, she said, "i
don't know...i just show up and play!" ...as she was turning back around
while starting to walk away.  her arms were outstretched while she spoke,
like in a big shrug.

then she walked on to where she came from and met back up with a big group of
her friends, some six or eight people. the funny thing is, she was the only
one that went back, into the store.  i wouldn't have said anything or had
that opportunity if they'd all been with her.  and it wouldn't have been
quite as real, i think, either...because she *was* alone, with no gaurds and
no pretenses.  it was really neat.

so there it is.  there's my story.  i hope somebody has a smile on there
face, and i hope everyone understands my spastic enthusiasm and doesn't flame
me with complaints of length.  'cause that's what this list is about after
all, isn't it?  indigo girls discussion.  just be glad it's all in one post.
:0)

ig's-n-guitars,
~nikki

ps--i was able to get two "indigo girls" guitar pics, though neither was
used, and a portion of --i think it was amy's--set list.  the latter of which
was written on the back of a schedule of flight, hotel, and rental car info
for their stay at newport!!  it was all crumpled up and sopping wet, but i
managed to salvage all but one corner of it :)
a woman next to me, when i was exactly front and center against the rope,
caught emily's thumbpick!!  i was sooooo jealous!!!  =(  i was sooo close,
too!   oh, well...next time, right?  see y'all, and hope you enjoyed! i know
i did. = >

hi folks,

just a few things which have been floating through my head for awhile,
but only just now decided to come out... :)

i found a copy of 4.5 in an import store here - well, in brisbane
actually, the last time i was up there - whoohoo! :)

for all you folks who went to newport - i die of jealousy!  i'm
going to be over there next year - or die trying. :)

also, we heard a hip-hop-type-dancy-type-rap-type version of "mona
lisas and mad hatters" the other day.  weird!  has anyone else
heard this?  it took me aaages to work out what it was - several
verses of "this song sounds familiar", followed by an "oh my god!".
it was bizarre. :)

oh yes, one more thing - am i correct in assuming that "don't think
twice..." is going to be on joan baez's new album?  and when is it
going to be available?

btw, for any of you that care, this is my "new" address.  you can
still use the old one but this is now the preferred address for
personal mail.

thanks all! :)

subject:      some igc and some nigc

o, hi,
    yep, thoroughly bored with staring at my other screen tonight and
randomly hopping through those ig spots on my hotlist, i happened
across the info at the sony site that they would soon be offering ig
screen savers - available august 29th.  no details, but they are
offering screeners of several of their artists and the ig one is
entitled "touch me fall."  hmmmm, hope it doesn't include an image of
bb king and jimmy vaughn!  ( not that these guys aren't great
bluesmen, but you folks get the picture - um, don't you? )    : )
     now, what has really driven me to post ->  i heard kristin hall
over the speakers in krogers yesterday!!!!  maybe the world is
getting a little better, after all. kewl!
     and, for all you ani difranco fans, rolling stone does a tasty
little review column on her latest disc.  um, just in case you missed
it.
    finally, another plug for my pal's column in the flagpole,
athen's music rag.  she writes the articles under  the title "the
surface."  disclaimer:  its not me she's talking about in this
week's column (8-2-95) - change the scene to ponce de leon ave and
maybe it would apply, but she has passed on a few 'stalking' tips.  <-
---   joking, read the article, i think the hidden water (s) site has
a hyperlink to the flagpole.
    so, looking forward to those newpie reviews.
remember                                                  peace

subject:      newport, fans and the "girls"

hi all,

well it seems that most of the other list members were quick to the
computer <grin> here is my 2 cents worth.

i did see the little sign that said "list meet" on saturday about 1pm
when i went poking around and took a dip in the ocean after lunch. i
thought about going earlier but i'm a bit shy meeting new people.....
then on sunday when i finally had the courage i was there at noon but i
didn't see a sign, or an obvious group of people. oh well. <smile>

on saturday my highlight had to be mcc. i was lucky to be up front and
she was great!!! patty larken was good but......... i must say she is a
very *different* patty than the one i have listened to for years. her
music and guitar work has matured but she has become so *dark*. she has
also lost that stage presence she once had. she use to be so animated.
i have seen her about 3 times in the last year or two and this seem to
be the case.

sunday was indeed the *best* day, even if it did rain. but the real
show was not the music, it was at the fort adams parking lot at
7am.!!!! <vbg> ig fans are definitely nuts!! <big grin> and i was one
of them by getting at the parking lot at 6am. of course i was *not* the
first one by any means <grin> i talked and met with a lot of cool
people. the park rangers wouldn't let anyone start down to the gate
until 7 so we hung out in the rain. then the rangers stood up and it
was like the start of the boston marathon. people on bikes and on foot
lined up in the road. the ranger raised his hand up and then "go" they
were off!!! <lol> i wish i had a video. i btw, did not run. <g> but met
up with a women who's girlfriend did and they let me hang out with them
up front at the gate. not that it did much good, the run to the stage
is another event all together <grin> but i did manage to get a pretty
good view on the left side of the stage.

sunday was a great line up for sure. catie curtis, ferron, mary black,
and a big hightlight for me (besides the girls) was ani d.!! i have
really come to like her this past year, and i was not disappointed by
her performance!! i had just finished seeing her at falcon ridge 2
weeks ago. i just think she was totally awesome.

finally the girls!!! it was great to be so close and see them. i think
they put on a *great* show!!! ghost *never* sounded better. and e's
guitar playing was outstanding!! the non-album songs they did were a
great treat.  i do have have to say though i think that last years
performance was better. for one thing i think they played longer last
year. (i could be wrong but i think they did 2 encores) and i think
they rocked out a bit more last year.

i did make a boot with my little sony walkman and it came out pretty
damn good (imho) better than last years anyway. (i was much further
back last year)

on thursday, margaret said:

<<take care, i hope yo see everyone in newport!  i'll probably be wearing a
<<blue mount holyoke cap and jeans, so that should narrow it down to about
<<1,000 people that could be me.

i spent a lot of time *looking for margaret* at the nff, between sets and
bailing out the tarp.  before a&e were on stage, i took up residence at the
fence between the stage and their trailer and got several incredible pix with
my "throwaway" cameras (one had a zoom lense)...i'm keeping my fingers
crossed.  it says on the packaging "do not get wet."  while i was mashed to
the fence, a woman next to me started singing ghost in such a great voice and
some of us joined in the singing.  one of the women from the crew came over
an offered to take pictures of a&e with her (the singer's) camera.  she had 5
shots left and i bet everyone of them was great!

jude <== who saw it all (that is, ig) front row and center.  not bad for my
first ig concert!

p.s. i never did find margaret or anybody else from the list but i had a
*wonderful* time!

just kidding, kind of.  my friends and i might actually have these made
as we made the third row center!  yay!  can i just say that one of our
runners passed one of the bikers?  what a turbo-woman!!!

anyway, i enjoyed the concert as i'm sure did everyone else.  some
highlights:  the water draining in river form over my legs while waiting
in line for the second set of gates to open.  do i move?  no, i would
lose my place in line.  so i connected with the earth and a small deluge
of acid rain.  $8 for a poncho?  good thing i brought my own.  $5 for a
garden burger?  get real!  it's ahh-ni, not annie.  duh!  "you make a
perfect couple so...  fuck you!"  what a song!  "be one my side, i'll be
on your side.  together we can..  fuck."  amy, do you realize how many
people out there thought that was an invitation?  funny anyway.  no amy
songs from so?  :(  welcome me!!!! :) pushing the needle!!!! :)  i hope
someone gave amy a hug after dbtr; she looked sad.  did y'all hear her
voice shake on the verse after she put her face in her hands?  whoa.  got
a set list from the sound guy--they were going to do finlandia!!!

well, that was random.  it was nice to meet some new people (lorinda,
finally, phil and owen (thanks for the shirt!))..  where was everyone
else?

i do have a boot, and it's pretty good.  a little wind noise, though.  i
have ani and joan baez, too.  will trade, but not now!  i must finish the
cover tape first.  i'm still waiting for a supposedly killer version of
bury my heart.  i will use newport if i don't get it soon.  so that's the
hold up, folks.  i'm also moving in three weeks, so expect more
psychosis.

well, i tihnk that's about it.  i haven't read all the newport messages
yet, but if no one has posted a complete and accurate set list i will do
so later, but i doubt no one else has yet.

take care everyone, have happy indigo thoughts!

margaret

ps-ok, i just can't resist.  i know i'm going to get at least one flame
for this one:  did y'all see emily and her new (very cute) girlfriend?  they
were all kissy at the side of the stage during joan baez's set.  they are so
cute!!!  emily looks so happy--i've never seen her like this before; i
thought it even carried through to her stage presence.  she just looks
really happy.  it's great to see.  i wish them both all the best.  i feel
so lucky to have some part of them (a&e) in my life.  and amy looked great,
too, as usual (*pant*).  :)

hey you guys! remember that whole business a couple of weeks ago about me

well, they just played it!! ha! i didn't even hear it but a friend of mine
here at work did.  she said she heard me say my name and where i was from and
that i'd like to hear closer to fine by the indigo girls, and then the dj asked
me what i'd like to be when i grow up, and i responded, "an indigo girl." :)
tee hee. go ahead and say it bert, i don't care. :) it's one more small piece
of income for the most deserving ones, and a small moment of fame for me. that
just made my whole day, which makes it about 6 days in a row (ever since i
left for newport) that have been the best days i've had in a long time. what
a great week!!

hi, all!

i didn't see anyone else, either, but at one point i did see two people w/
mount holyoke crew jackets (and i think caps/hats) walk across the area in
front of the stage.  they were right in front of our tarp (we were one or two
tarps back), when some girls a little left and behind me started screaming
something like, "blah, blah!!!...i can't believe it!!"  you know...that kind
of thing, like it was some long-lost friend, or something.  the girls
screaming, however, looked younger than the two women walking by--young
enough to almost rule out the possibility that they were aquaintances from
college. know what i mean?  the two looked up and waved and, i think, smiled
(it was hard to tell through their head coverings, whatever they were!), and
then they moved on.

sooooo, if you know anything about this, i'd be curious to know who/etc.
i'll bet i was running into list people all day, the way things sound!!  too
bad i was too shy to ask people if they were from the ig mailing list, like
those people at jcs did!!  well, next time, i won't hesitate to make a fool
out of myself!!  :)

good luck with the cover tape - and don't worry, we'll be patient (sorta) :-}

boxes out of the basement ....

i, for one, want all the dirt on amy/emily and their significant others,

              festival" t-shir...

ok everyone, after reading all the enthusiastic nff reviews, i've got to add
my 2 cents:)
this past weekend was the best i had all summer, it was just fantastic.  i
met up with this guy named joe, who follows the girls around( he's seen them
80 times, i'm so jealous) at any rate he was able to get our tarp front row
center, it didn't get any better than that:)  ani is amazing, i had seen her
in philly in july, but she was in an excellent mood this time and played
wonderfully.  during ferron's set i had left the blanket to get some ice
cream, there were a lot of backstage people standing in front to the side of
the stage watching.  i went to sit down and one of my friends whispered "
look, amy's standing over there in the blue rain coat"  i looked and almost
died.  she was two feet in front of me, so my best friend and i walked past
her several times, she even took off her hood when it stopped raining...it
was so surreal:)  it took everything i had not to grab her arm and say "hi",
but i didn't want to bother her:)   anyway, when they finally did come on, i
couldn't have been happier.  i took a whole roll of film and danced away, it
was so amazing.  i made eye contact and shared smiles with emily several
times, it was really cool.  sara lee kept smiling at me during the set, that
was cool too.
afterwards, we got backstage and waited for the girls.  i got an autograph
and my picture taken with ani and autographs from joan baez, mary black,
ferron, luka bloom, as well as, talking to sara lee, jane s., jerry m., and,
jimmy descant...it was too cool.  the girls came out after what seemed like
forever, they'd been interviewed by vh-1( does anyone know when this is going
to air?).  they came out ready to leave, amy kinda brushed by, but joe talked
to her.  i was pushed out of the way by the security guards when emily came
out, i was so mad, i missed an autograph opportunity, grrrr.  but, as she was
leaving i said " emily" and she turned around, " thank you"  she smiled back
and said" no, thank you" and i said "see you next year"  and she was
gone....it was too surreal...i was very happy:)
ok, sorry for all that, can't help myself......
the set was incredible.....*hand me downs* is my favorite song of all
times...i was estatic.  i hope all of you had as much a good time as i did:)
see you,
maggie

well, nikki, you were; those "girls" who were yelling at the crewtons
were me and my friends.  the crewtons are '94 grads of mhc and the rest
of us are rising juniors and seniors.  we're all short, though.  maybe that
explains why you thought we couldn't possibly know college students.
anyway, i was the one in the red shirt who was making all the initial noise.
the crewtons are good friends of ours who we hadn't seen in over a year.

speaking of mount holyoke jackets, did anyone notice the woman who was on
stage while the girls played who was wearing a navy mount holyoke
softball jacket and a white baseball cap on backwards?  she was on stage,
but on the far right side kind of behind sara.  none of us know who she
was!  kind of unusual, as mhc is pretty small and we had a few softball
dykes with us.

take care everyone,
margaret

yeah, really! sorry folks, but if you were one of the people who passed by us
and bumbled over that little dip, we experienced great quantities of mirth at
your expense. :) and don't forget the middle aged couple next to us who also
decided that "dip watching" was great fun. people watching is always one of my
favorite entertainments, and nff sure didn't let us down!!

ok phil, let's be realistic here. you're a groupie too. :) driving 400 miles,
camping out for two days, sleeping scrunched up in your driver's seat and
hanging out in the rain all day sunday to hear 'em qualifies you (and me) as
an official groupie. *big grin* don't worry. you're still my hero.

subject:      answers and questions

hi- i'm new on the list so hopefully i'm doing this right.

to jayne- i don't know if anyone answered your question yet about 3 hits, but
frank stanford was a poet who wrote "the light the dead see" which amy read and
"went crazy over."  well, he committed suicide at age 30 by shooting himself
three times in the heart and she said that she used images from his poems and
his life in the song- hence, three hits to the heart.

now, i'm going crazy listening to everyone talk about the nff which i
unfortunately missed, so does anybody know about upcoming tour dates if there
are any?  and- this is a bit random- but i've been wondering for awhile, in
"left me a fool" the lyrics go "but when it comes to flesh and bone, you remind
me of shallot."  does anybody know what the meaning of shallot is?  and finally-
to joan and margaret- i would be interested in any info (including all dirt) on
amy and emily.

thanks,

jenn

i'm trying to track down some people i know who are into classic lit about
the *shallot* reference from lmaf but no answer yet - would love to hear what
anyone finds out about this.

on tour dates - sunday at nff the girls announced they were taking either a
year or a year-and-a-half off.  does anyone know if this means they won't
(panic!) be at nff next year ?

shallot was a legendary city made of shadows.  someone famous, keats,
yeats, shelley... did a poem about the lady of shallot..

as far as i knw, it's not biblical, but rather british isles legend.

actually, it was tennyson who wrote the poem "the lady of shallot", although
its entirely possible that other poets used the same subject.  the poem deals
with camelot mythology, concerning lancelot and a lovelorn lady of shallot.

" 'i am half sick of shadows' " said

i think you have in mind the island in tennyson's version of the arthurian
legend -- but i believe e's reference is just to all the layers of the bulb.

subject:      shallot

"the lady of shallot" is a poem by alfred, lord tennyson -- i think.  it's
been a long time since i taught anything other than medieval and renaissance
literature, so i could be wrong.  but my instinct says it's tennyson.  if
i remember correctly, the poem centers on a woman travelling in a boat
toward a castle (camelot?), and who is madly in love with one of the knights
there; there is something about a curse, as well, something about her being
trapped on the boat and on the journey.

ack.  memory fails me.  i'll check this in my victorian anthology at the
office and get back to everyone later.

all this talk this week about newport, etc. has wended its way deep into
my subconscious. i swear i dreamed about amy and emily all night long.
the only dream i remember clearly involves a discussion concerning
concert tickets. i was talking to listserv members in person, and someone
told me about this great ticket you could buy for $150. the ticket was
like a pass, which entitled the buyer front row seats to any and all ig
concerts (throughout the world) during the tour!!! what a great idea! i'd
like to see this in place for the 1997 tour (if there is a 1997 tour)!

that's all i remember -- sorry if i disappointed ya'll!

     well, it appears as though we were surrounded by list members on
     sunday.  i believe margaret and her crowd were behind us and to the
     left.  were you the ones freaking out when emily was off stage
     watching the other acts (i.e., looking at her through binoculars,
     cheering when she kissed her gf?)?  shame, shame.  no wonder a&e think
     everyone on the list is a bunch of obsessed maniacs.  of course, there
     were two girls in front of us who proved you don't have to be on the
     list to be obsessed.  at one point they came running back to their
     spots saying "i can't believe it, emily actually touched me!"  i
     thought they were going to faint.

     there was also someone from the list who was sitting front and center.
     she was wearing a bds t-shirt and i heard her mention something about
     a list meet.  are you out there?  it would be nice to put a name with
     a face.  of course, i could have said something to her but didn't.

     and if anyone is wondering (you never know) we were sitting two tarps
     back, stage right.  i was wearing a gray newport sweatshirt (didn't
     come prepared, had to buy it there) and a detroit tigers hat, deanna
     was wearing a black ig hat, and nikki, when she was there which was
     really only during mary black (she almost fell asleep) and joan baez
     (she was preparing for the mad rush that occurred when ig took the
     stage) was wearing a trash bag during the early morning hours and i
     think a blue sweatshirt later on.

     well, maybe next time someone will actually speak up and admit they're
     on the list.

go with the tennyson reference (em's an english major).

if i remember correctly, shallott is a reference to a land where
people are only made of shaddows, no physical substance.  i need to
check this, hell i haven't read the poem since 1986.  this make a
little more sense of the line:

        but when it comes to flesh and bone,
        you remind me of shallott.
        only made of shaddows,
        even though you are not.

really powerful stuff!  this is also one of my favorite songs and is
featured on my "jilted tape" which has been getting too much play as
of late. =(

didn't emily say (i think in the interview with kirsti) that this is
one of the songs she would like back so she could work on it some
more?  i think she felt it was just too straight forward.  i could be
confusing this with hey jesus.  anyway, straight forward or not, its
one of my favorites. =)

that was me with the bds t-shirt sitting front and center:)  when did you see
it though, when i was showing it to my friends?; i was wearing a grey
polar-fleece sweatshirt over it because i was so cold.  i wish that you would
have spoken up, i only got to meet a few list members and was hoping to meet
more:)  i had an amazing time, as you've read from my previous post, hope you
did as well:)  what were you wearing...i bet we briefly spoke without even

hi gang,
i too was looking for list members on sunday.  we were actually sitting 50-70
yards behind all of you up front.  so at about 1pm i told my wife i was going
looking for you- and proceeded to walk up to the stage.  you can imagine it
was a little embarassing yelling out "pickle" to the crowd, only to get no
response (i also tried yelling "list meet- also to no avail).  i did finally
get to meet margaret 8-) and her friends from school, which was very nice (i
hope you enjoy the t-shirt-- i treasured it for years, but told my wife i was
certain you would appreciate it even more than we do !!).  would have liked
to meet more of you folks (oh well, maybe next time).
maybe we could organize a list meet of list members in the nyc area one day ?
any responses from the nyc crowd ?
take care,
owen

i have a copy of this cd, and i'm sorry to say that the ig rendition of
"least complicated" is rather uninspired. just my opinion, but the
arrangement and performance is exactly the same as on so.
:(

on the other hand, there are many spectacular cuts on this cd that make it a
must have. me is incredible, as is david byrne and counting crows

ok, now i've heard this story before, so i knew all about 3h and everything,
but something's really been bothering me about this. sorry, this is really
totally nigc...how does someone shoot himself 3 times in the heart?? did the
people investigating this incident really investigate it well enough to be
sure he shot himself? it just seems unlikely somehow. if it's true, then the
image is extremely powerful, and i can understand why amy felt strongly
enough to write the song, especially since she was so moved by his poetry.
suicide is emotionally devastating, even more so than murder. but...are they
really sure??? sorry folks, this is really gruesome, and i don't really expect
an answer since i doubt one of the investigating policemen is on this list.
but every time i hear the song i just wonder. maybe i watch too much tv.

peace,

hi folks,

i tried to send this message a couple of days ago but it bounced back
telling me that it was undeliverable. my e-mail account seems to be doing
strange things lately. so if at first you don't succeed..... give up?!
(try, try again)

according to epic in london the indigo girls video (ie watershed) is going
to be released here in the uk as well as in the usa. they don't know if the
double album is going to be released here though.

sharon

glad you folks that made it to newport had a great time. i just wish that i
could've been there again.

              digest processor" at aug 9, 95 12:00 am

this is my first post to the list, but since people have been asking about
"shalott", i thought i would dust off my norton anthology of english lit. and
read the poem.

i "spent four years prostrate to the higher mind, got my paper" (in english
and chemistry), but i'm still not "free" (4th year graduate student, ph.d
candidate, analytical chemistry).

there have probably been lots of people posting about this, but here's ny $.02:
the chemist plays literary critic.

the story of "the lady of shalott" (by tennyson) is pretty simple.  she lives onthe island of shalott in a river near camelot.  the lady spends her time singingand weaving a magic web, all the while looking in her mirror and watching the
world go by.  supposedly there's a curse on her if she ever looks on camelot.
well one day, lancelot goes riding by, and she's so intrigued she leaves her
weaving and looks after him, to camelot!  hir mirror cracked and her web
unraveled as the curse "came upon her", and she hopped in a boat and floated
down to camelot, singing her deathsong.  nobody knew who she was, and the poem  ends with lancelot commenting on her beauty.

as for the meaning, this wasn't a poem i personally studied in a lit. class, butwhat i got out of it was that it's about someone who's so sheltered throughout
their life that they just crumble when they're "out of their element" and
away from familiar surroundings.  there are probably more "literate" analyses
in cliff's notes or something, but i've always believed that each person has
his own interpretation of poems and there's no absolutely "correct" meaning -
only the author knows for sure.  emily may be a tennyson fan who used the
reference to indicate someone who's just a very fragile person, beautiful but
with no substance - like the line in "left me a fool" that goes something
like "looking below your surface i find an empty pool..."  anyway, that's just
my opinion.

i have been lurking on the list since a few weeks before it got switched from
ctf.  i really enjoy reading all the posts; people are fun and informative,
and i do laugh when reading the "cheeseball" stories and whatnot.  i saw ig in
indianapolis in april and it was a great show!  i have just a couple of
questions and then i'll shut up.  1. has anyone ever had any luck getting a
response to fan mail sent to the girls c/o management?  2. is there going to
be a jcs video?  i read on the web page to watch for it, but when?

keep those stories coming and enjoy the rest of you summer!

subject:      another newport

as always, newport was filled with special thrills and surprises, some of
which we shared in common (like an ig setlist which transcended all others)
and some which only each as an individual could appreciate.  here is a brief
list of mine:

*  working my way through the crowd at the chutes to meet my partner at the
front of one of the lines and having a guy ask me what i thought i was doing
to which i reply (indulging my self-destructive taste for sarcasm) "i'm cutting
to the front of the line.  what else?" (there are some things you just
don't joke about at newport:)

*  learning magic tricks from the woman sitting next to me at the chute;

*  yelling out "amy" after amy sang the line "ain't no use in callin' out
my name now..."  cheesy but fun...and a veritable newport tradition...
someday she'll laugh instead of rolling her eyes :)

*  having the rain stop (briefly:) after ferron finished what she called
something like her anti-rain dance song;

*  being at newport for the first time in a long time with someone not
initiated into the lunacy we call the newport folk and fitness festival;

*  sitting watching the music and noticing that patty larkin is similarly
situated with a group of her friends a couple of blankets away;

*  and the biggest thrill of all...seeing i-girl in her (holier than thou)
amy ray jeans :)

sue, that was very articulate (not a surprise) and i, for one, appreciated
the explanation. i've come to appreciate the "left me a fool' lyrics, and
i always wondered about what it meant in just the sense that you were kind
enough to share on the list. thanks for de-lurking!

actually phil, you bring up a very interesting subject.  it was dec. 91 or
jan. 92, i think, and there had been a pretty hefty piece of time thta had
passed since i had last seen ig.  i was at a party at someone's house, and i
requested to put on an ig cd (i think it was the self-titled - that's the one
that most non-ig fans have).  when i brought this up, someone standing nearby
said to me, "did you hear.  one of the indigo girls has throat cancer.  i
think it is amy something."  well, i don't have to describe how this made me
feel.  i imagine most of you would probably feel the same way if you heard
such grim news.  anyway, my mood for the rest of the night was shot, and i
spent the next few months wondering if this was true.  at this point in my
life, i had not yet encountered the internet nor was i even a member of the
fan club, so i had no idea how to get the truth about this evil rumor.
fortunately, rites of passage came out (may of 1992 i am guessing) and i saw
them on tour, and amy sounded as good as ever and this was proved to just be
an evil rumor.  but for i while, i thought i might never see another ig show
ever again.  after the june 1, 1992 beacon theater show i was able to sneak
into an aftershow party that epic was throwing for ig at some restaurant/bar.
i was hanging out with some people in an outside patio area in the back of
the place, and two tables away, amy was sitting with a few friends, and they
were all smoking cigarettes.  at that point, i was livid.  it was only a few
months after hearing this vile rumor about amy having throat cancer, and here
she is puffing away on the disease itself.  i wanted to go over to her, grab
the cigarette out of her mouth, and scream
"do you know what i have been through over the last few months - i thought
you were dying of throat cancer" or something like that.  fortunately, i
didndidn't.  i was able to maintain my composure and credibility, and just
shrugged it off.  it's her life, and she can do what she will with it.
unfortunately, one day, we will all have to go through what many grateful
dead fans are going through today, and many years earlier than they should.
obviously, amy ray does not trash her body the same way that jerry garcia
did.  there is no comparison.  it has been well discussed on this list about
the fact that she jogs regularly and she probably eats right.  they both look
like they are in great shape.  especially emily.  she looks thinner now than
she did back in the late 80's when they were both sticks.  while neither
should attempt to wear nylon stretch pants (see amy ray's horrendous choice
of outfits for the david letterman "i don't want to talk about it" appearance
- you all know what i am talking about and i am sure that amy knows as well)
i am sure that we have very little to worry about.  that doesn't mean that
they should take unnecessary chances either.  well, i have rambled enough.  i
thank those of you who read this much.  i would like to end this poist by
wishing condolences to the family and friends of jerry garcia and to all of
his many fans.  it is not easy to lose someone that means so much, and i wish
you all the best over the next few months.

peace pops

aw jeez, first the frank stanford thing, and now this. what a downer day we've
had! it's funny phil should mention this, though, because as soon as i'd heard
about jerry garcia, my first thought was how terrible it must be for dead fans
right now (not to mention his family and friends,) and my second thought was
for the girls. (god, please keep them safe!!!!!) as far as what would we do?
well, we'd mourn...a lot. my condolences to jerry garcia fans, and ditto on
what phil said: "don't die." now let's talk about something life-affirming.

what's your favorite concert memory, not including times you actually met
them? those stories always make me jealous. :)

peace and long life,

i don't think this is a bad time to ask this question.  no worse than
any other, that is.  but i don't see any real reason to ask it
anytime.

however, i'd like to let you know that you trivialize the issues
here, as well as the feelings of many people on this list by making
such a comparison.  yes, i love amy & emily (esp. amy.. *ducks* ;)
but i cannot possibly compare their "era" to that of jerry garcia.
i'm not sure i could even say that there is/has been an ig "era".

jerry garcia was touring with the grateful dead when a&e were in
diapers, possibly not even born yet.  (i don't know the dates in
question offhand.)  many people i know have never even *heard* of
them.  i don't think i've ever met anyone (including in other parts of
the world) who hadn't heard of the grateful dead.

plus, as chris becker pointed out on irc, there is no ben & jerry's
indigo girls ice cream flavor...

when a friend is in mourning, is your normal course of comfort to have
them imagine even more people dead?

subject:      i can't help myself- a personal nff review

okay, i know, i know-- everyone is sick and tired of reading about
the newport folk festival but i really just have to share my personal
experience with the whole thing.  i honestly think that i have told
this story about 20 times (once in its entirety on someone's answering
machine) but i am going to tell it again.  i'll leave out all of the
things that you've already heard-- but i must say that it was me who
walked with maggie past the "hooded amy" during ferron's set and that
was so amazing-- being 2 feet from her.  almost made me want to reach
out and touch her but i managed to control myself. :)
anyway!!  we got backstage (through a series of events that is too long
to go into) and as soon as we got past the guard i thought i'd die.
everything was happening so quickly-- it was great.  first i met ani
(difranco if you didn't know) and as i recall i said something like,
"hi ani..how are you..you were great..can you sign this for me..i
know we're being assholes and i'm really sorry but can we take some
pictures with you..?"  she was totally cool about the whole thing
she really is so modest about her work (like "you want my little
old autograph and picture?")  that was amazing.
        but moving on...i spoke to sara lee briefly, as i did joan
baez and ferron.  but i think the best was when luka bloom was signing
my book and he said to me, "hey-- i saw you in the front row dancing
around to ctf-- you looked like you were having the best time!"  and
i said, "yeah, i was..i was having a great time."  we were in front
row center :)  so we waited and waited to see a and e.  they were in a
huge rush when they came out and i missed amy (although she did make
eye contact and smiled at me during the ig set) but i did manage
to squeeze myself next to emily and while she was signing some little
girls' books and security was shooing everyone away i had my hand on her
back and i got my picture taken with her. (!!!!!) can't wait to get that
film!
        so all in all that weekend was amazing-- truly awesome.  i love
ig- i just love them. (sigh)  hopefully amy will get itching to tour in
about 6 months or so (not 1.5 years:()  i definitely definitely recommend
the nff to anyone who hasn't been.  everyone there is very friendly and
it is a lot of fun.  that's my advertising for the day :) -lynn--- who is
considering calling herself "lyndigo"- inspired by lorinda :)

i just got carol noonan' s (the x lead singer of the band "knots and
crosses) new cd "absolution" and who's name did i see in the liner
notes? amy ray!

the song is called "break the ice" here is how it appears:

5. break the ice (music by carol noonan, lyrics by amy ray)

could there be *another* amy ray out there?!? (not as far as i'm
concerned <g>)

unfortunately the cd does not have the lyrics, i did the best to make
it out and transcribe it.

are you a man of conviction
are you a man of your word
do you mean what your saying
have you seen the words

i based my first impression
on something true you've said
are you telling your white lies
are you sliding across the bed

chorus:
oh how you break the ice, your match it strikes attempts to melt the
ice.
oh how you break the ice, your match it strikes attempts to melt the
ice.

i think i sense some contradiction
in what i mean to you
could you stand to see me crying
would you tell me that we were threw

i'd like to think that i trust
but i cant be sure tonight
do you mean what your saying
while you break the ice.

chorus:
oh how you break the ice, your match it strikes attempts to melt the
ice.
oh how you break the ice, your match it strikes attempts to melt the
ice.

carol also mentions amy in her thank you's

carol noonan has a great voice and i highly recommend you check out
this great album!!

i have to pipe up and second that opinion--carol noonan's "absolution" is a
very fine recording.  i first heard of her about three weeks ago on npr up
here in maine.  apparently, she lives in an old maine farmhouse in the
country with her husband.  and yep,  amy's on there...no voice, just  in
lyrics.

this is not the ig amy ray.  i know carol's publicist so called her
when i saw this amy ray's name listed in the liner notes of carol's
previous band, knots and crosses.  carol's friend amy ray is old friend
from maine.  not the same one as from ga.

i dont have carol's new cd yet but caught her set at the friday
night show at newport....sounded fabulous.  and i have only heard
good things about this album.  it's a folk rock sound with great
lyrics.  check it out.  it' s a philo/rounder recording so should be
fairly easy to get...dunno if rdr has it.

favorite concert memory... hmmm...

1)  the very first time - had no idea who they were and had no interest in
finding out.  was completely blown away the rest is history.

2)  they were opening for joan baez at the garden state arts center in nj in
august of 1990.  after kid fears, i jumped up on stage and gave amy my baja
(cloth hooded poncho).  as i was being muscled off the stage by this 6'6"
200+ lbs. amazon woman from hell, amy said, "hey!  leave him alone!"  she
didn't and i was thrown off the stage mercilessly, but its the thought that
counts.

3)  shea's buffalo stadium in october of 1994.  first time haering ig do
freebird as part of touch me fall.  i couldn't stop laughing it was so funny.
it was one of the first times i ever saw them make fun of themselves on
stage.  also memorable when myself and 50 others jumped onstage during closer
to fine.  it was the only time that i wasn't depressed after hearing that
song.  amazingly enough, ig took the whole thing in stride, and afterwards,
we were able to watch one of ig's roadies get into a huge argument with the
head of security.  it was an amazing night.

4)  the entire fan tour - i thank everybody who was a part of this for making
it possible.

hmmm. all reports say they're taking 1 - 1 1/2 years off. one year
would put them aug '96, 1 1/2 would put it into '97.  sounds right to me.

btw, all... personal notes back and forth have been clogging the list a
lot lately. is there any chance of taking some of the banter off-list?
thanks (and my loaded mailbox thanks you too).

subject:      aol ig-chat room / lost mail / irc last words...kinda long,
              but what's new?!

hey, all--

a while back, when all that talk about the irc was buzzin', someone inquired
to me about creating an aol ig chat room...for those of us who are
unfortunate enough to be discriminated against just because we bear the
(literally)damned name of aol... :(  <boo! boo!>
...........sorry, had to get that out......
_anyways_...i cant' find a lot of my mail from a while ago that i was
planning on responding to ( i went away and came back to this problem).  so,
whoever it was that suggested this ig chat room to me: good idea -- i'm in
!!!  you were one of these people i couldn't get back to!!  please write me
privately and we can discuss it.  the same goes for anyone else who might be
interested in this venture as well :)  and--to anyone else that wrote me
requesting a reply and thinks i left 'em hangin--please, send it again!!  i'm
sorry and it wasn't intentional =(


alright, this last part of my message is to support and explain my earlier
statement (you know, the aol/irc outburst :) ).  so, if you don't feel like
hearing it, then please simply move on to the next post, b/c i'm not forcing
you to read it--it's after all my ig content, and i'm giving you fair
warning.  i just need to get this out, b/c i feel like this thing kinda just
fell w/o any reconciliation or closure.

it just really hit me recently, as i've had no success in my extensive
efforts to get on irc, that this "aol.com access denied" thing really sucks!
who is anybody to say that somebody _else_ shouldn't have equal access to a
**public** service (irc)???  it's pretty high and mighty, if you ask me! and
if people are referring to aolers' tendency to be netiquette-inadequate,
fine.  point well taken.  but don't group that label together with a sweeping
generalization that all aoler's should be denied access to the irc because of
it.  the two are separate issues and should be treated thus.  the one has to
do with education.  the other, freedom.

as far as "net traffic" is concerned...well, that's just something that will
have to be solved in the future, hopefully soon.  the problem is
*inevitable*, despite aol entirely. the internet is a rapidly growing "new
world", and the problem/possibility of overpopulation will **inevitably**
need to be addressed.  for those of you "colonizers" who were fortunate
enough to witness this new birth and be a participant in its early stages of
developement, congratulations.  but things change, and that, too, is
inevitable. sorry to have stretched that analogy, but it's entirely
appropriate.

what i'm saying is this:  let's not build this wall on the list between
aolers and "the rest of the net people"...we are all a part of this list for
one reason, and one reason alone:
we love the indigo girls.  at least that _should_ be the reason.  we should
be more concerned about our bond together as ig fans than with a
preoccupation over details of cyberspace.  that's all i have to say about
that.  (line from fg, for those of you that caught it......=)......)
peace to the list...i mean well :0)

to the girls & guitars,

but remember you can get more things on that one shipping charge.
he is carriyng the "this is boston--not austin" collection...a
grand colleciton of bosotn area acoustic folks.  and he has an import
of joan armatrading's new disc (whihc may be released in the us but

hi everyone,

i just bought a few ig (and ejs/kh/mm) collectables but i'm not sure what
the "average" price ranges for such items are.  i remember a while back
julie meloni (i think) held an auction, and i was wondering whether anyone
out there saved a copy of the final auction post so i could get an idea of
what these babies are really worth.

i would have written to julie directly, but i'm having trouble logging on
the hidden water home page today and i think her e-mail address may have
changed in the last couple of months.

can anyone help me?  thanks!  -- lori

hey there...funny you guys should mention ig dreams - i had yet another
one last night (if i remember correctly, this would be #4 for me!). in
this one i was walking along somewhere and heard watershed, so i was
looking around trying to see where it was coming from. next thing you
know i wsa inside a house, in the lounge room. a&e were bopping around
the room, strumming their guitars and singing. emily was wearing a creamy
coloured shirt with little dark red flowers or dots or something on it,
and jeans. amy was in a really cool dark brown corduroy jacket (looked
like a second-hand-store kinda thing) with dark jeans and a
yellowy/mustardy coloured shirt. emily was jumping all over the sofas and
going really nuts as she played, then there was a big close-up of amy's
face as she let out a huge guffaw. it then proceeded in a sort of
interview, but i don't remember who was interviewing them or what was
said.

wierd, hey...must be the full moon or something!

funny you should post this just now...i *just*tonight* bought that cd,
"hejira".
...........of coarse, for the *sole* purpose of getting inside emily's head
:)  so, anyway, here they are!
                                                hejira

i'm travelling in some vehicle
i'm sitting in some cafe
a defector from the petty wars
that shell shock love away
there's comfort in melancholy
when there's no need to explain
it's just as natural as the weather
in this moody sky today
in our possessive coupling
so much could not be expressed
so now i am returning to myself
these things that you and i suppressed
i see something of myself in everyone
just at this moment of the world
as snow gathers like bolts of lace
waltzing on a ballroom girl.

you know it never has been easy
whether you do or you do not resign
whether you travel the breadth of extremities
or stick to some straighter line
now here's a man and a woman sitting on a rock
they're either going to thaw out or freeze
listen...
strains of benny goodman
coming through the snow and the pinewood trees
i'm porous with travel fever
but you know i'm so glad to be on my own
still sometimes the slightest touch of a stranger
i know--no one's going to show me everthing
we all come and go unknown
each so deep and superficial
between the forceps and the stone

well i looked at the granite markers
those tributes to finality--to eternity
and then i looked at myself here
chicken scratching for my immortality
in the church they light the candles
and the wax rolls down like tears
there is the hope and the hopelessness
i've witnessed thirty years
we're only particles of change i know, i know

orbiting around the sun
but how can i have that point of view
when i'm always bound and tied to someone
white flags of winter chimneys
waving-truce against the moon
in the mirrors of a modern bank
from the window of a hotel room.

i'm travelling in some vehicle
i'm sitting in some cafe
a defector from the petty wars
until love sucks me back that way.

i've been following the igs for  seven years and am a huge fan, but there
will never be another artist  that matches joni's songwriting ability .   i
wouldn't be surprised if, after listening the hejira, you become more
awestruck by joni than the igs :-)

hey folks,

   a friend of mine with a camera took a few shots of the ig set at
newport, i've scanned 4 of these and i am making them availiable for
anonymous ftp.  this is a limited offer and they will disappear in a
week -- friday, aug. 18 -- because the ~ftp/pub space is limited.  you
need a gif viewer to display the images.

   the site is "space.mit.edu" and the directory is "pub/cmb/ig".

        -rw-rw-r--  1 cmbecker   525555 aug 11 10:28 newport1.gif

detailed instructions for newbies to anon-ftp follow.

   the photo credits got to don smith.  thanks to ig and the nff
for allowing free reign of still photography at the event.

                                -- chris

anonymous ftp primer:
---------------------

1) ftp to the site, for most systems:

        ftp space.mit.edu

2) when prompted for login, give the username "anonymous" and then your
e-mail address as your password.

        username: anonymous
        password: cmbecker@space.mit.edu

3) change directories to the image location

        cd pub/cmb/ig

   if you want to check you are in the right place, type "ls"
   and the files should appear.

4) let ftp know you are downloading binary files

        binary

5a) to get all the files, type:

        prompt
        mget newport*

5b) to get a selected file type

        get newportx.gif

6) logout by typing "exit" (or "quit", i forget)

                        good luck!

and what's wrong with them all being of amy??!!! <g>
the pictures are very large. when you download them you only see the left
hand side  on the screen. try moving across the screen to see the other
half. emily is over there on the other side.... honest.

thanks  chris for putting them up.

the photographer's name is don smith and i don'tthink he minds them
being on the www.

as for all of amy, well the photo line was very crowded and went from
the amy side of stage to the emily side of stage.  basically, he
grabbed the first open spot he could and shot most of them.  of the 8
pictures he took, 6 were from the amy side, one center, and one from
the emily side.  as a result amy seems the focus of many of the shots.
it was environment, not editorial comment. =)

                        -- chris  (who is one of those weird emily and
                                        amy people depending on his mood)

subject:      lady of shallot

hi gang,
unfortunately, since i am unable to read most of the e-mails from the list
due to time contraints, i've missed most of the conversation here.  when i
saw headings saying simply "shallot" i did not make the connection to the
poem.  i don't know if it has already been mentioned or not, but the lyrics,
and a beautifully sung version of this are contained in an album by loreana
mckinnett (i believe it is titled the story).  if you don't know her, she has
one of the most amazing voices i have ever heard-- the album could best be
described as somewhat enya-like (for any enya fans out there).  what i am
wondering, have missed the previous threads, is why we are discussing this
ancient poem on our list.  are the girls going to sing a version of it ?
could someone respond with an e-mail directly to me (nieberg_owen@bah.com) ?
thanks.
take care,
owen

actually, the album is called "the visit" and the artist's name is loreena
mckennitt.  not to mention that the poem is "the lady of shalott", not
"shallot", which is an onion-like plant :)

loreena is one of my personal favourites.  she is a bit enyaish, but i'd
have to say that she is overall much more interesting than enya.  she has
changed over the years from a fairly traditional celtic-type singer to, in
her latest album, "the mask and mirror" a worldly, ethereal, eclectic
performer.  she is excellent both live and in recordings.  *plus* she's
canadian :p

well, this is only my second post to this list, but it unfortunately looks
also to be my last.  i'm losing the account i use for mailing lists, and
i'll have to (at least for now) cut back to only good old ecto, as my other
provider charges me extra for net traffic over a certain amount daily :/  i
may be back in the future, but for now, i'm afraid, goodbye.  well, in a few
weeks anyway - i don't lose the account until september, so i plan not to
unsubscribe until then.  still...

take care

subject:      sounds like newport was great!!!

just wanted to chime in briefly (i never post these days) and say how glad
i am that everyone had a good time at newport. i was there two or three
years ago (whenever that legendary rainy performance was that knocked the
power out) and it was probably one of the five best of 200+ shows i've
seen, shortened though it was.

gosh, wish i'd been there.

gosh, wish i had a tape!

anyway, i'm personally thrilled they're getting a break. no one deserves it
more.

subject:      jcs in seattle

this is sort of a late post on this subject, but i've been in a state
of shock and needed some time before sharing.  i went to the saturday
jcs in seattle and it was quite an experience.  i got a call from a
friend early saturday morning telling me that one of my best friend's
brother was shot and killed that night.  i knew her brother and he was
a very sweet guy...just recently graduated and was living in san jose,
ca.  he was in a supposedly safe neighborhood walking home that night
and was mugged and then shot.  i then spent the whole day in line at
the pier thinking about it.  i actually saw some of you all come around
looking for list members but i was too out of it to respond.  so before
the show began emily came out and talked about the dangers of gun
violence and how we should support these local agencies that are trying
to do something about it.  she said they chose to do this show because
"jesus came with a message of peace."  i was stunned and moved beyond
words.  mostly i was utterly grateful that they were doing something
about the cause since i felt its urgency that day more than i've ever
felt it in my life.  it's true, i realized, that gun violence can take
away someone you love in just seconds.  one minute they're there and
the next minute they're not, out of the blue and though no fault of
their own.  you never think it's going to happen to someone you know
until it's too late.  i wished there was a way for me to thank the
girls for what they were doing and tell them how meaningful it was for
me.  god bless them for their message of peace.

on another note, i'm going to be leaving this account today since my
summer internship's over and it's time to go back to school.  if you
want to respond or reach me, i'll be at
geetika_lizardi@mtrack.bus.umich.edu.  i'll be checking that account
periodically until school begins in september.

peace,
geetika

     i just wanted to note that on vh-1 today on the "video breaks" segment,
they did a five minute segment on newport .  they showed a clip of the girls
singing "bury my heart at wounded knee".  they also interviewed them for five
seconds, just long enough for emily to say how great the fans are every year
to endure the weather.
     just thought i'd mention it since vh-1 always reruns segments.

hey.

i'm hoping that i will be ready to take orders for the cover tape by the
end of next week (the 18th).

since so many people have been asking about boots from newport, i'll
mention this again:  i have a good one that i will be willing to trade after
the cover tape stuff is done.

there, that was concise.  :)  look for more details later.

subject:      ejs/jcs offer

hello everyone!  i've got a few cds to sell that i bought on
list-members' recommendations that i could live without (the cds, not
the listmembers).  they are:

ellen james society--reluctantly we
ellen james society--the survivor's parade
shawn mullins--better days
jackopierce--bringing on the weather

any reasonable offer considered.

also, since i'm in a good mood today, i have a live version of jcs
taped off of austin radio that is quite good.  it takes up one and a
half 90 min. tapes.  i'd be willing to dub it for, say, 5-10 people if
they in turn will dub it for others.  sound like a tape tree
situation?  probably, but i'm not going to set up another tape
tree.  my first (and last) one of those was fraught with disaster.
i'll accept trades or blanks/sase.

ok, anyone interested in any of these things, please e-mail me
privately.  i have other cds for sale, but they are not ig or
list-related, so if you want that list, e-mail me for that too.  i'm
on digest version, so any posts to the list may be missed (or ignored).

subject:      viva la diva

        so all, viva la diva played on thursday night to a small crowd at
the darkhorse tavern, in atlanta.. the show was defintely better than the
show at the masquerade.. this time not only were there shirts taken off,
but we also had some pants taken off, and a bra thrown that landed on the
mic of bassist jan dykes.. needless to say it was quite interesting..  we
also had the added treat of amy coming and singing during one of the last
songs..
there were the usual moshers, but not as many as i've seen in previous
shows.. but they helped to add a little touch to the show.. if you have
not yet heard this band, i highly recommend you hearing them.. they are
not acoustic.. i term them as 'punk', but i'm not sure that that's what
they call themselves..  i hear that they will have a cd coming out at
the end of september.. i'm not sure if a date has been set.. but it
promises to be quite good.. and if you didn't know-- their single--
silver bullets was given a great review by billboard magazine.. again,
check out their stuff. they've also got a demo tape out, and great t-shirts
the
single is available at rdr-- 1800=636-6166, and the tape might not be, if
it isn't, you can get order it through the http site--
http://monsterbit.com  well all, take care.. a delurker for a moment--
rain.
