subject: [ig-news] lilith fair review:  detroit


i often question my local paper the flint journal, but they came up with a
very positive review concerning lilith fair.  it was quite complementary to
amy and emily, so thought the list might enjoy it... i've edited out parts
about other performers... those skips are marked with ***


i was there the second night (the night after the reviewer) and it was an
incredible evening.

"summer camp camaraderie flows at lilith fair"


        clarkston- if sarah mclachlan ever decides to hand the lilith fair
torch to someone else- word has it she'll ditch it after next year- she need
look no further than the indigo girls.
        when mclachlan's baby hit the road last year, the artists were all
women, or acts led by women, and many of them didn't know each other.  even
in detroit, where mclachlan road-tested a lilith prototype two years ago,
there was little interaction between the headliners onstage.  it came off
more as a series of performers.
        that all changed when the indigos joined the tour last year with
their informal ya'll-join-in philosophy.  that led directly to the all-star
jam session that now closes every show.
        their spirit permeated the new, improved second annual edition of
lilith fair, which settled in monday for a sold-out three-day run at pine knob.


***


        the indigo girls, versatile folk-rockers who look like a young
johnny cash and bonnie rait and sing like they could be the everly sisters,
turned the night into a jamboree.  drawing from a deep pool of diverse,
earnest, folk-rooted songs about love, integrity and truth, atlanta's amy
ray and emily saliers tapped their own talented three-piece band and a cast
of characters that included just about every main stage act but natalie
merchant.  
        their medley of "cut it out," about a lover's quarrel, and neil
young's "down by the river" where he shot his baby, was one of the most
magical moments of an enchanted night.  o'connor and her female band mates
joined in on the chorus.  "it's alright," with its message of tolerance in
the ugly face of hate, was especially defiant after ray dedicated it to the
south carolina high school that banned them because of their sexual orientation.


***


        the musical kinship lacking from last year's pine knob stop was all
over the place monday - and the indigo girls' fingerprints were all over it.
        until female artists get the same kind of respect, publicity and
creative control as their male counterparts in pop music, there will be a
need for lilith fair. if it's gotten to big for maclachlan and her handlers,
maybe the indigo girls could foster it alone.

hey folks,


i forgot to mention in my preface to the last post -
apparently the new songs which were unidentified in
the harborlights setlist are "gone again" and the new
version of "problem child".  the cover "take a load
off annie" is actually "the weight", by the band.

[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo
girls mailing list at netpsace.org.  again, the song identified as
"suffragette" is probably the new version of "problem child"...]

even being almost last out of the parking lot, home before dark...it is
wonderful to have the indigo girls in the neighborhood!


it was a wonderful summer day in the lakes region, and a wonderful crowd.
fourth row is nothing to ever complain about, and the concert was fabulous.
others i'm sure will post many better details, but i thought a set list soon
would be nice, tho i'm on digest so maybe have been beaten to the punch!


i didn't do a set list for michelle, but she was incredible, looked far better
than she did last year, and when i asked after her health afterwards she said
she was fine, the second time worked.


setlist for the indigo girls:


shame on you
it's alright
deadman's hill
get out the map
tried to be true
love will come to you
cut it out
down by the river
hammer & a nail
(guest artist kelly williams)
shed your skin
least complicated
wild horses
power of 2
?gone again? (new)
galileo
?suffragette? (new)
the weight
ctf


and my titles may be off, but it was a glorious day and now i have to go treat
my sunburned neck.  hope to hear more from others about it...we are still
walking on air, figuring we have had our perfect concert experience.


and i hope someone posts the set list from harborlights, cuz i forgot my pen!
