okay, i'm back from the northwoods and my excellent camping experience.
thanks for the cookies, by the way, holmes hummel!!!  i appreciate all of
you that followed through with sending me money to reimburse me for the
tapes and that sent me tapes if you were trading.  i'm hoping that all of
you enjoyed the tapes...but i do know that some of you got tapes that had a
side completely blank or an entire tape blank.  i'm not sure how this
happened exactly.  all i can say is i'm so sorry...with making over 250
tapes in just a few days, i didn't have the time to go through and check
each of the tapes and everything.  so...please accept my apologies when i
say that i had no idea that this happened.  so, i would definitely be
willing to redo them for you.  i don't know how you want to do it, but if
you did have a problem with a tape, will you e-mail me and let me know and
any suggestion of how you'd like to correct it.  thanks for understanding!!!

i got a blank tape from you, but i'm the one who feels sorry.  i'm sorry
that i neglected to thank you for your work copying all of the other
tapes.  i wouldn't worry about it.  i'm very busy right now.  maybe in a
few weeks i will get back to you and tell which one was blank and we can
work something out.  i hope you had a good summer.

subject:      amy or emily epiphany?

hi y'all -

here's a thread i've thought about posting but wanted to wait til list
traffic slowed down to a dull roar. now that newport is over and we all have
to live on memories for the next year <sniff>, here's what i'm curious to
know:

has anybody had an "awakening" to one girl or the other, either by going to a
concert, or meeting them, or reading an interview?  i really "woke up" to amy
this year (after being a fan since 1989) and thought others might have
similar stories.

i have always been your typical emily person -- into the complex lyrics,
softer melodies, hopeful themes, etc.  i tended to skip some of amy's songs
(though chickenman grew on me!) and didn't get into analyzing them like i
have emily's.  i have seen the girls in concert many times since 1990, but
the show i went to this winter (brandeis univ., dec. 1994) just blew me away.
maybe it was the 8th row center seats ... i had such a great view of the
interplay between everybody on stage.  anyway, amy was really up that night
(in contrast to other shows where she's been stomping around, breaking
strings and generally in her own world) and she was electrifying to watch!
her playing has really improved over the years - the solos were great - and
she puts so much into the performance! i know this is not news to you amy
people ;-) but i was so taken by it that i went home and listened to all my
tapes and cds and now have a completely new level of respect and admiration
for amy's writing and musicianship.

so, are there any of you amy fans that have been turned on to emily's stuff?
other emily admirers who have jumped on amy's bandwagon?  after all these
years, i am now an equal admirer of both, so i am truly looking forward to
the live cd!

tape -- switching off between emily and amy's parts -- while driving with the

i think we should make it an indigo rule that whenever we are driving anywhere
during mild weather, that car windows should be down, ig or another one of our
atlanta faves should be in the tape deck, and we should be singing at the top
of our lungs. we need not stick to a single vocal part, and we need not even
sound good. but let's face it, this world could use a little more indigo. i've
always secretly hoped that one day a little old lady who happens to be
crossing the street as i sit at a red light will have her whole life changed
for the better due to the stunningly gorgeous music blaring from my car.

as to the question that this post was about, i've always liked both of 'em a
lot, with a little more emphasis on amy. so no big switches for me.

as to the previous question about what's wrong with the list...yeah, it's been
rediculously slow these past few days. actually, that's why i'm posting now,
because no one else is, so i might as well just talk for a while since none of
you seem to have anything to say...oh well, can't think of anything else to
say except, "gee, i sure like indigo girls."

hiya everyone, i've been subscribed for about a week and a half now, and
since everyone is commenting on how slowly the list is moving, i thought it
would be a good time to come out and introduce myself.  i actually have been
on the melissa list for awhile and found the address for this one on it, and
was thrilled...i am a huge fan of both melissa and ig, but always lean more
toward ig.

my name is jenny, tho i won't usually respond to it <g>, jj is better...i'm
27, have been an ig fan for about 3 years now.  i live in the san francisco
area and my lover lives near la, so ours is a commuter relationship...seems i
spend more time on planes than on the ground  :(  i always travel with my
walkman and ig tapes tho, makes it more bearable...and it's kinda funny,
whenever i put on rites of passage while i'm flying, invariably airplane
comes on...lol...believe me i can relate!

i love all of ig's music, have a strong preference for amy's lyrics and
vocals...her voice at times sends chills down my back, it is incredible!!!
<besides that, she's too darn cute ;)>   i would say that my favorite cd's
are their first, and rites of passage, but i really like so as well.  i've
been dying to get to one of their shows, but for the past 2 yrs it hasn't
worked out for various reasons...i swore to my lover we were going to go the
next time they come around here if we have to turn our lives upside down to
do it!!  in the meantime i have to content myself with their live at the
uptown lounge video....does anyone know if there is more video of them out
there?

i'm also curious what the plans are for their next cd and tour dates...if
anyone knows, i'd appreciate the info.  :)

i'm looking forward to getting all the gossip and news and communing with all
the rest of you out there who have the good taste to realize that ig are the
best thing going!!  :d

kindred indigo spirits unite!  i *always* have the girls in my tape deck and
i am *always* singing along.  i experience pure joy cruising at 75 mph (don't
tell my state police pals ;-)) while singing power of two!  yesterday i got
out the ig tape and blasted tried to be true and land of canaan while i made
my way through traffic.  i just never get tired of these women.

hope the list revives itself soon!  i knew it would probably slow down once
the tour was over, but i didn't expect it to roll over and die!  we always
seem to have things to talk about here ... maybe we'll have to revive the
discussion of m&m colors (maybe that was the melissa etheridge list?) or i'll
have to threaten to re-post my obsessively detailed account of playing rop
over and over while i was in labor (chickenman takes on a life of its own

okay, after reading deb's post about the new album, i was motivated to check

know i still owe you some bootlegs...anyway, if any of you are interested..i
don't know if this is old news or what, but at the site:

http:/www.ipac.net/lifeblood

there is info. about the new album...it is under the sony official news or
something, under the subtitle "other www sites"...it just says the title of
the album, but does not give a release date.  so...there is also some cool
pictures from newport folk festival.  again, i don't know if this is old
news, but the pictures are amazing.  so, check it out...later.

i'm so releived to find out that i'm not the only one. i always pull up
at stop lights with my windows and sunroof all open, and ig just
a-blaring. somehow in my mind i think that i'll either, a) make people
go, "wow that's really cool", and someday they'll figure out who they
heard, buy all their disks, get e-mail and then join the list and say,
"well, my first ig experience was when i pulled up to this car...." or
b) catch the attention of other ig-luvin folks who will then think that
i'm cool, thus deceiving them, because i'm really not, i'm just a dork
who likes ig. of course there's always c), some muttonhead who will pull
up and glance over in their sunglasses and non-ig music and throw crusty
looks in my direction. but that's okay, because even though they think
they're cool, i know that they're really not. as you can tell, i just
thought i'd hop on here and babble on like the dork i am. so now i'll
let the rest of you (the ones who sat through this...) go on with your
reading.

just kidding. i remembered one other thing. i go to a school an hour away
from where my fam-damily live, and so i am constantly driving up there.
sometimes it's boring, but sometimes it just transforms my whole day. the
key is to wear cut-off jeans, get the old barrette/scrunchie in the
hair, and thus not care about the end product, secure all objects, and open
every window possible while blasting
the back to back ig tape you made louder than you can hear yourself sing
along with them. this last part being the key point, i think. unless you're
not like me, never let your own voice be heard. instead, just turn up the
volume. :) and this.... is the perfect drive.

subject:      ig driving/amy or emily epiphany

hi everyone!

i get a really big kick out of hearing ig and me on the radio and blasting
out of other people's cars! i'm all psyched that my favs are getting the
attention they deserve.  it's the greatest feeling when somebody else
decides to play the music i want to hear, like a connection of some sort.
i think of all the other ig (or me, depending who's being played) fans that
are in earshot and about all of the perspective fans....

it's great--this list pact to expose the world to great sound waves!

*nigc--hi heidi, if you're reading this post!  it's not too often i come
across another!*

i was always (about 4 years of fanhood) into both ig.  i used to always
think of them together, though, as one sound.  now, i like to take it apart
and see what comes from each, their separate styles.  i think i used to
favor the emily songs.  actually, i would always skip over chickenman until
a while back, when some awesome person on the list posted amy's explanation
of the lyrics.  it changed my whole perspective on the song.
my preference of one or the other seems to depend on the phase i'm going
through and what's going on in my life.  right now, i'm more in touch with
the rough, intense sound of the amy songs.  but they're both so incredible,
i feel lucky to have had them influence my life.  just think--i could have
been born deaf, or in another century, or of an indigenous tribe on another
continent and i would never know this world falls on me....

sorry for all my rambling.  i have no idea why i'm talking to a computer at
2:05 am!
good night, all!

association, so i'll come up with something else--habitat for humanity
maybe).

anyway, i need two things.

        1) confirmation that "indigo swirls" is vanilla ice cream,
                with chocolate covered blueberries, chocolate chunks,
                and blueberry swirls running throughout.

        2) bert's permission to enter this in the competition.  its
                his idea after all.  i think more than one entry of this
                is ok, but plagerizing ice cream is lower than low.


provided bert gives the ok, get to your scoop shops now!  besides, the
ice cream is good!

                        laters folks,

                           chris

p.s.  maybe we should ask for another flavor with tan and blue m&m's.
        sort of an old and new theme. =)  i have to work m&m's in somehow =)

if only...judging my similar periods of ig in-activity, the ig list will
probably devolve into lots of nigc messages.  guess i'm just
pessimistic.

sure in a certain since.  i started catching their shows at the pub back
in '86 while i was a student at ga tech (don't worry, i escaped intact
soon afterwards!).  at the time, emily started recognizing me because
i was a regular at their shows, while amy was usually busy hanging out with
other preformers or with the wait staff at the pub, white dot,
trackside, et al.  since i'd talk with emily from time to time, i
tended to appreciate her lyrics more.

after they signed with epic, their shows increased in popularity and i
quit catching their shows.  from the time they signed, i've only seen
them six times (benifit at centerstage, benifit at the roxy, rites
album release at turtles, $10 tour at eddies and so album release at
tower, jcs).  however, over time i've spoken with amy about some similar
interests while emily probably wouldn't recognize me from the throngs of
other folks that regularly catch their shows.  now i'm a bit more
interested in amy's music because of the "personal connection",
albiet a miniscule one.

wow!  it'g great to hear that i'm not the only one who gets sings at the top of
their lungs to the girls while driving.  one of my favorite sing a long times
was this past spring-- i needed to get away from law school otherwise i know i
would have gone crazy.  i spent a  great afternoon driving through the beautiful
texas country side (all the blue bonnets were in full bloom) and singing rop and
nis at full blast.  the sun was out and the windows were down.  that drive did
more to rejuvenate my psyche than anything else could have.

as for the ephihany.  i too was initially drawn to the girls by emily's touching
and heartfelt lyrics and harmonies.  but as i have listened with a more educated
ear, amy has really become my favorite.  the power of her lyrics and especially
of her voice truly gets to me.  after seeing her as jesus in the jcs is austin
in march, i get shivers when i hear her voice.  she conveys emotions so
powerfully- it's a different type of power than emily.

anyway, i guess i've rambled on enough.  i think i've been inspired to go for a
drive this afternoon....

peace,
suz

in-reply-to:  your message of wed, 23 aug 1995 10:35:58 edt

it is interesting that you bring this up.  i was in a scoop shop with two
friends in arlington, ma (one of which is on the list, but i will keep her
identity secret for now).  anyway, we saw the flyer for the contest, and it
was this that gave us the idea to create and indigo girls-related flavor.  my
first idea was indigo squirrel crunch.  both of my friends thought that this
was an awful name for an ice cream flavor, and after running it by some of
the people on irc, i found that no one would ever eat any food product
with the word "squirrel" in it.  i had no intention of putting squirrel parts
in the ice cream, i only though it was a very earthy, nature-oriented sort of
name, but after market testing, found that indigo swirl(s) crunch was
definitely more appealling.  thus, it was this that i decided to present to
the list.  i had no intention of entering the flavor in the contest, knowing
full well that most contests such as these are won in a random drawing rather
than through a considerable amount of thought.  and while the thought of a
year's worth (or whatever the amount) of free b&j's ice cream was tempting, i
was more focused on getting the flavor created.  and the way to do that is
bypass the contest completely and send our requests directly to the marketing
dept. of b&j's.  the contest entries have to go through the scoop shops first
and then through a whole complex process before a winner is chosen, and
again, it may be more luck than merit that wins the concert.  to have indigo
swirl(s) crunch become a reality, we need to flood the marketing dept. with
professional letters, describing our idea and its reasoning.  there is no
opportunity to do this within the framework of the contest.  even if
everyperson on the list submitted the same idea to their local scoop shop, it
is still unlikely that it would get noticed, much less win the contest.
however, feel free to submit any entries to the contest that you would like
to.  i only ask two things.  first, that you still participate in the letter
writing campaign to b&j's.  second, if you use indigo swirl(s) crunch and
win, that you send me a pint of chocolate chip cookie dough every month for
as long as you are being supplied.  the truth is that i am only interested in
this to have an ice cream flavor named after indigo girls.  i am not a big
fan of blueberries (chocolate covered or not) and i would probably only buy
one pint of the stuff if it were ever made, and keep it in my freezer as a
collector's item.  however, i do know that chocolate covered blueberries are
becoming very popular (try going to a starbucks coffee and finding them in
stock) and i think this flavor would go over very well with people who like
fruity ice cream flavors, i just don't happent to be one of them.  one last
thing.  i don't feel that this subject has been discussed properly.  so far,
the only ideas that i have seen are indigo swirl crunch, indigo swirls
crunch, and lauree's facetious (i think that's how it is spelled, maybe not)
amy raysin crunch.  come on people.  i know for a fact that most of the
people who are subscribed to the list are college students or have completed
college, or even if you have never spent a day in college are intelligent
thoughtful people.  heck, you're ig fans.  that in itself shows a modicum of
intelligence.  i would like to see more ideas for flavors.  i am sure that we
can think of something better than indigo swirl(s) crunch.  think about it
and post your ideas when they come to you.  even if your idea is really bad,
post it.  maybe someone can improve on it.  when it comes down to it, there
is no such thing as a bad idea.  so post anything, the first thing that comes
to your mind.  post once, twice, a thousand times if you have to.  don't be
bashful.  do it for amy & emily.  considering how many times they have sold
out their (whoops, sorry - forgot to turn off the caps) day of the newport
folk festival, they deserve to be immortalized in ice cream.  i look forward
to your ideas.

ps - how about this for an idea indigo girls peace pops.  there would be two

chocolate (brown hair) and emily's could be vanilla (blond hair).  i am
really rambling now.  someone, cut off my net access.  do it for your own
sake!  save yourselves!!!  bye.

wow!  i can't believe it.  after that extremely long rambling message, i
still have something to say.  chris:  the ingredients of indigo swirl crunch
are vanilla/vanilla bean ice cream, chocolate covered blueberries, grape nuts
(again, these are not really nuts, they are a crunchy cereal), and blueberry
swirls throughout.  that is all i have to say for now.  i am finished.  i
think.

actually, it should be strawberry/vanilla. (oops! i'm adding to your
rambling.) i'm trying to think of other ideas, really i am. but they're not
coming so far. something will probably hit me at 4:00 tomorrow morning. then

ok, i've been holding my tongue because i doubt you all care much what i
feel is appetizing, but since this can now possibly have greater meaning
than my personal taste buds i must interject.

gross!  bag the chocolate covered blueberries!  the chunks and the
blueberry swirl is fine, but the chocolate covered blueberries have got
to go!  (they'll be too expensive to mass distribute, anyway, and would
probably chip teeth when frozen.)

hey all!

i started out as your typical...and i mean *typical* emily babe - i guess
in a way i still am, but when i saw amy do blood and fire on the uptown
lounge vid i was a changed person. the amount of passion she displayed in
her performance...and, once i started looking for it, in all her
performances...gave me gooseumps all over. i was even crying when i saw
that b&f for the first time. it seems to me that emily's works are really
accessible, which is a very good thing, but amy's require a little more
probing of the soul or something. anyway, when yo do find whatever it is
that unlocks amy's door (metaphorically speaking, of course!!) it is an
amazingly moving expeerience!

sorry to waffle on like that. oh yeah, i too have an ig-only tape
deck...except when i tune in to the radio (which *never* plays them, but
thy're a good station anyway!).

see you all later!

i've only heard amy do this song twice....this show was the first time and i
think the second was a late night preformance at trackside a few months
later....at the time of the white dot show vision boy was the name of this
song but the next time she played it she changed the title to something
else....that night she said it was a song about a friend who almost killed
himself by oding on drugs.....rumors at the time here in atlanta were that
she wrote it about gerard mchugh, however that has never been proven to me
so i consider it hearsay....one of my favorite rare songs though.... :-d

hey folks, just wanted to share a little igc with ya.....here in atlanta
yesterday on 99x they announced that russell carter is looking for a good

it unconfirmed but still worth looking into...apparently 99x announced that
russell's office is searching for a good boot of chickenman possibly having
to do with 1200 curfews....the rock for aids show here in atlanta in april
springs to mind as an excellent preformance of that song....if you've got
one i'd suggest calling the office first and verifying that this is even
legit....i don't have the number with me and the phone book is all the way
downstairs but surely if you need it somebody on this list has it..... :)

subject:      danielle mf howle

a couple of bits of news for fans of daemon records band lay quiet
awhile. the band has officially broken up, but danielle howle, the lead
singer, is continuing full swing with her solo work. she has just
released a live acoustic cd, "live at mcissick museum", which is
available via mail order from her newly formed mill records, at po box
5615, columbia, sc, 29250. look for another danielle howle album, with
her full backing band, the tantrums, to be released in january on simple
machines records.

ps. for those of you in england, the new live disc is available from
southern records, the same label that issued the uk version of lq a's
"delicate wire" cd.

all right margaret!!!  we have a response!  i don't care if it is negative,
it is a response.  how many people out there agree or disagree with margaret.
i would agree personally, because i am not a big fan of blueberries.  like i
have said previously, i would probably not eat this flavor, but i would buy a
few pints and keep them in my freezer as collector's items.  how does this
sound?  if you have ever looked at the lid of wavy gravy, you will notice
that wavy himself is part of the picture with ben & jerry.  i feel that if
this flavor becomes a reality, amy & emily should be on the lid.  what do you
think?  input, i need input.

on another subject, are we still interested in doing a net version of jcs.
if so, i think we should wait until after labor day to claim parts, only
because the people who are away from their computers until school starts
should have a fair chance at claiming a good song.  that's all for now.  keep
posting your ideas.  remember, a silly idea is a terrible thing to waste, or
as dan quayle once said, "it is a terrible thing to lose one's mind".  am i
the only person who is still amazed that this person was elected to public
office, much less was a heart attack away from being president.  thank you
george bush for being as healthy as you were.

well, this brings up a subject that i've been pursuing for a long time. i am,
and have been in search of a boot of the tower show in philadelphia on
4-26-95. this was one of the most amazing ig performances i've ever seen, and
i desperately want a boot of it. yes, she did chickenman, and it was about a
20 min blow my socks off version of it. there were also a number of other
highlights that made it a wonderful show overall. rumor has it that _someone_
out there has a boot of this show. if you are that person, please respond!! i
have lots and lots of neat-o things to trade. as for the rest of you. be
for-warned. i will probably be posting this message again in a week or two
when school is back in full swing, and all our absent list-members are back
from vacation. i just thought the chickenman discussion made it an appropriate
time to post.

oh, and i've got another (not very interesting) driving/ig story for y'all.
last night on my way home i pulled up to a traffic light, and the car next to
me was absolutely blasting rap-trash (trashy-rap, puke-yuck, noise-filth). so
in an heroic attempt to save hellertown from this...this...this _crap_ i
out-blasted him with the wood song live from some boot or another. i wanted to
give him dirty looks too, but i was afraid he'd beat me up. it appears that in
general there are two types of people: those who listen to good music very
quietly, and those who listen to very bad "music" very loudly. i like to break
that mold and listen to the very best music very very loudly. :)

hey :)

record collector magazine. september 1995, has a three page ig's article...
with cool things like probably the most gorgeous picture of amy you're ever
likely to see, and an illustration of the blue food cover...
can't remember who the author is, but it's a very comprehensive and
informative article, with stuff for people of all levels of fanatisism...

prolly reach the states in a week or two...tower get them in, and so may
your local record store, so...

er, for the song, buy rites of passage...

but you prolly want to know this, so...

ok, the first shepherds bush show was recorded. as far as i know, noone has
a tape of this (if they have, i would do very many things for a copy:>)

the second was filmed and recorded, and 50 minutes was broadcast on bbc1
last month...
many people taped it (including me :>) and i thought there was a plan for
someone in the us to start a tape tree, although i have heard nothing about
this for sure...it has to be someone in the states or with a nstc video
system 'cause the uk and us broadcast to different specifications....

i would offer my tape of the show, i still will if needs be, but it's not in
stereo, and my recorder's about 10 years old, so both picture and sound
distort a little...so someone elses copy would be better...
although if you want mine...i could work something out.

there. an overlong explanation for y'all :)

subject:      best concert ever

i guess we're kind of getting to this anyway, but i thought i'd make it
official.

the best indigo girls concert you have ever been witness to in some form.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

when, where, what did they play, anecdotes, how was the venue, etc...

i suggest not letting personal experience change your answer (i.e. just
cause you were backstage or got front row tickets don't vote that
show...keep it on a global tip if you know what i'm sayin)

i also suggest to not includthe opening bands in the consideration.

obviously all of these things are important to a concert experience, but
i think the interesting thing is to find the best, most well played set.

[i guess we already have that tower records show as a first nomination?
(don't want to insert words into anybody... :-) ) i personally haven't
been to enough shows to say, but i liked cleveland '92 rites of passage,
and cleveland nautica stage summer 'o' '95.

ok i'll bite.  i'm sure more would come to mind if i thought about

provincetown ma july 1991--they were relaxed and having a good
tiem and were very talkative through this show.  it was also the
debut of a solo version of "love will come to you"

eddie's attic, feb 10, 1993--anotehr chatty show.  loose and fun.
the place was pakced (if there had been rafters peopel would have
been hanging off of them) and there were plenty of spontaneous
moments.  and even though she blew a line, i love this show becuase
emily played "play it again sam" to fill time while amy replaced a
broekn string on her guitar.  amy kept screwwing up land of canaan
as well.

hmm...  i'll bite.  (btw, michael jackson from the 80s just came on the
radio--yikes!!)  new haven, this past spring.  4/24/95.  amy rocked my
world.  this marked my conversion from an emily person to an amy person.
chickenman monologue = awesome.  crazy game = hysterical.

oh, for those of you who weren't there or who haven't heard he boot, amy
walked off stage while emily was playing the intro to crazy game.  emily
looked confused, the audience was in shock.  a little less than 5 minutes
later, amy came back out eating a banana.  in the meantime, emily has
been improvising this killer guitar solo.  everyone is confused.  amy
belts into the first verse, still holding her banana.  emily went all out
on her verse--this is the kind of stuff that she should sing more often,
imho.  amy is looking at emily and you can tell that she thinks that she
(emily) is just the most amazing thing on earth (at that moment).  i
think the coolest thing about amy is that she thinks that there are
people out there who are cooler than she is.  anyway, amy finishes the
banana during emily's verse.  then they finish the song and amy says:

a:      my mother once asked me, "amy, what do you do if you have to pee
        during a show?"  i said, "i never have to pee during a show."
        huh huh huh huh (cackles) i have guards like watchdogs... (into
        reunion right away)

*wow*

to make it all even better, my boot turned out wonderfully, which made me
happy.  i was listening to it in the car on the way back, and when amy
was asking what you should do when you see an animal get hit in the road
an opossum walked across the road in front of me.  i straddled it, as did
the person behind me and the person behind them, but i think the fourth
person might have gotten it.  :(  it was a striking moment.

so that's mine!

take care, everyone!

ps-still waiting for the inserts, then the cover tape will be available.

yikes, it's my third post in a week!  well, at least i *think* it is ... i am
on the digest format and have only received two this week (8/20 & 8/22).  i
know at least one of my posts made it to the list because lorinda cc'd me a
response (thanks, l.) but i have yet to see it in print.

is there really that little traffic that the digests aren't coming out daily
anymore or is it a problem at my end (yeah, yeah, everybody go ahead and
blame it on aol)?

if anybody has saved the digests for 8/21, 8/23 or 8/24, could they please
e-mail me copies?  i feel so behind and uninformed!

thanks in advance -

subject:      favorite ig concert

i have seen ig live 4 times now, and my favorite time is still the
first time i saw them at the greek theatre in los angeles on june 29,
1991.  they did great versions of hammer & a nail, tried to be true,
and it was the first time i ever heard crazy game, so that made me
glow.

amy looked at the colored lights at the back of the outdoor venue and
said the lights reminded her of a ride at disneyland, and emily
explained that she wrote girl with the weight of the world in her
hands about a woman she once saw in a room who looked lonely and kept
quiet.  she said it seemed ironic because usually the people that are
the quietest have the most to say.  later on, after they sang another
song emily gets on the mike and says that's a sad song, now let's
sing a happy song and they kicked into the intro to closer to fine.
the crowd went nuts and sang along.  that was during the obligatory
first encore, but we were so loud they came out for a second encore
and did american tune a capella.  to me, they've never been better.
if someone has a bootleg, i'd be very interested.

as much as i would like to blame it one aol <g> you are not alone..
it seems the digests didn't get out this week, or possibly they didn't
