i never saw anyone post this, so i thought i'd mention that there was a
wonderful article in last month's ms. (march), featuring their "women of the
year."  amy, emily, and winona laduke were honored as a trio for their
tremendous honor the earth and related work.  go check it out and subscribe to
ms.  they do great work creating a socially and politically informed,
advertising free publication.

subject: thirty-minute lilith fair special on vh1 next week...


hey everyone...


just a quick note here:


the us music video station vh1 will be broadcasting a 30-minute special on
their 'women first' program about lilith fair on the following dates:


        * monday, april 27th @ 8:30am
        * wednesday, april 29th @ 6:30pm
        * friday, may 1st @ 12:30pm
        * friday, may 15th @ 7:30pm


in tour news: we've been having a little confusion (well ok, maybe it's
just me...) in regards to the july 1st date in oklahoma. in one post i had
it as oklahoma city, and in a following post i said it was closer to tulsa.
after talking to some of the lilith fair crew that happen to be in town,
it's been confirmed as happening in oklahoma city at mohawk park. pardon
the confusion there, folks...


                        thanks for reading

news flash: indigo girls go back to school


folk duo amy ray  and emily saliers plan to play a number of benefit
concerts along the way.


georgia folk duo the indigo girls, featuring singer/guitarists amy
ray and emily saliers, will launch a tour of college and high-school
campuses on april 13 with a show at loganville high school in
loganville, ga.


the unusual 19-date tour will also feature a number of stops for
various charity concerts along the way, eventually leading to the
pair's second stint on the all-female lilith fair tour this summer.


"we like to play these sort-of punk club tours to reacquaint
ourselves with why we do this and to stop the business from taking
over," said ray, addressing a panel on "career mistakes" at last
month's south by southwest music conference in austin, texas. ray
told a number of stories about club owners trying to pay the pair
in drinks, watering their friends' drinks down and trying to
miscount the proceeds from the door.


she added that playing colleges and high schools allows the group to
avoid sleazy promoters and club owners who rip off artists. by
returning to the club circuit, she added, the indigos are able to
keep in touch with the reason they got into music in the first place.


"they've been trying for years to play high schools and reach out to
their younger fans," said lisa markowitz, the group's epic records
publicist. "they have lots of younger fans who can't necessarily come
to see them at coliseum or club shows, and this is a way to play
shows for them, too."


among the benefit appearances on the tour are an april 23 stop in
dallas at a show benefiting the pro-choice group voters for choice;
an april 27 new york benefit for the virginia slam group, which was
founded in reaction to the virginia slims cigarette brand's
aggressive marketing to young women; and a may show in austin, which
also will feature sets by rock-pop artists steve earle and shawn
colvin, to benefit the mexican zapatista rebels.


additionally, a version of the indigo girls song "shed your skin,"
remixed by rage against the machine guitarist tom morello, will be
included as a bonus cd alongside the group's most recent album,
shaming of the sun, and will be released as a radio single in mid-may.
the bonus cd pack will be sold on the lilith fair tour and will
feature the album version of the song, the remix and two live tracks,
according to markowitz.
