indigo girls tap lisa germano, ann wilson, shonen knife,
others for experimental tour  
  
the indigo girls are tapping a host of female performers
for a tour that promises to offer what indigo girl amy ray
is calling "a socialist experiment in rock and roll."


lisa germano, jane siberry, heart's ann wilson, luscious
jackson's kate schellenbach, the breeders' josephine wiggs,
mecca normal's jean smith, come's thalia zedek, lourdes
perez, and gail ann dorsey (who has played with david bowie
and tears for fears) will all be on board for the 12-date
tour, which kicks off on august 19 in portland, maine. the
indigos are hoping for a harmonious convergence of the
differing style and approaches represented by each of the
artists who will share the stage. or as ray said in a
statement released to announce the tour, the plan is to
"gather a bunch of musicians from different musical genres
who are relatively unfamiliar with each other... throw them
on a tour bus together... drop them off at a rock club, and
see what happens."


if you want to see what happens (and see opening acts
shonen knife and buffalo daughter), here's where to look:


8/19 - portland, maine @ state theater
8/20 - burlington, vermont @ memorial auditorium (w/buffalo
        daughter)
8/22 - cleveland, ohio @ the agora (w/buffalo daughter)
8/24 - detroit, michigan @ state theater (w/buffalo
        daughter)
8/25 - chicago, illinois @ the riviera (w/buffalo daughter)
8/26 - chicago, illinois @ the riviera (w/buffalo daughter)
8/27 - milwaukee, wisconsin @ rave (w/shonen knife)
8/28 - minneapolis, minnesota @ first avenue (w/shonen
        knife)
8/30 - cincinnati, ohio @ bogart's (w/shonen knife)
9/1 - norfolk, virginia @ boathouse (w/shonen knife)
9/2 - philadelphia, pennsylvania @ electric factory
        (w/shonen knife)
9/3 - new york, new york @ roseland
