[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo
girls mailing list at netspace.org.]

okay, folks, the cds and labels have all been mailed out to the branches,
so if you'd like a copy of the ig set at merriweather post pavillion in
columbia, md on july 19 (a full description is in the message included
below), please make arrangements with the person associated with your
birthday month.  sherlyn is going to be the australian branch,  robin the
canadian branch, and kathrin the german branch, but if there are others
outside the us who want the tape, i'm hopeful that you'll be able to come
to a satisfactory arrangement with the person associated with your birthday
month. the only stipulation i have is that *no one* can make a profit or
*require* a trade -- anyone should be able to get them by sending a 60
minute blank and an sase, though it would be nice to arrange a trade if you
can.  i've gotten good feedback from the branches that have listened to it
so far; i spent a great deal of time mastering the recording with cooledit
software, and i'm quite pleased with the results.  i don't think you'll
find much better recordings of the ensemble performances of "the weight,"
"water is wide," and "what's going on," and there were some great moments
in the rest of the set too (natalie merchant's trumpeter was an interesting
element in several songs).


note:  there weren't enough people who volunteered to be cd-r branches to
tree cds, so leaves are tape only.  i won't be making any more cds, as i'll
be on to mastering the newport and 9:30 club (dc) shows at next
opportunity.  the newport show is already being tree'd by someone else, so
i'll announce for 9:30 club branches when it's ready.


here are the merriweather branches:


jan     jean <jkniese@ix.netcom.com>
feb    lisa <memememi@aol.com>
mar    laura <laurajackson@mindspring.com>
apr     jude <hunterj1@aol.com>
may   lisa <nordeelm@caa.mrs.umn.edu>

australia       sherlyn <sherlyn@fl.net.au>
canada  robin <robin_squires@ymca.ca>
germany kathrin <kathrin.siegmund@stud.uni-hannover.de>


branches should use the following addresses for overflow; if you receive
more requests than you can handle (and please take care of at least the 15
you've committed to), please refer those folks to overflow branches as
follows:


    jan-apr     monique <monique@entelechy.com> * monique is on an ig road
trip
this week, be patient!
    may-aug     karen <karenfrey@redrose.ne>
    sep-dec     sue <skwan@midway.uchicago.edu>

the acoustic cafe broadcast is available on-line now through real audio
at http://www.mlive.com/cafe/ and it will be there all week.   there is a
short bit of introduction text and a picture from the sots "sitting on
couches in the desert" pictures.   unlike what i thought from the timing,
they didn't just record it in the past day or so - they were doing lilith
when it was recorded.


enjoy!

subject: suffragette sessions tour


the arts section of yesterday's chicago _sun-times_ has a story on the
suffragette sessions tour, sponsored by indigo girls and some other acts,
which is discussed as a nonhierarcical, noncorporate tour of alternative
artists.  it seemed to me that this might be of interest here, in view of
the thread on how lilith fair has allegdly gone corporate.


it may still be at the sun-times website, http://www.suntimes.com .

suffragettes make music  


by rick reger, chicago tribune.  


   it seems as if every other summer package tour -- from lollapalooza to
lilith fair -- is hyped as a stereotype-smashing breath of fresh air. in
reality, most musical caravans end up reinforcing conventional notions about
particular artists or musical styles. but the suffragette sessions tour is one
extravaganza that may live up to its billing. the tour gathers an impressive,
diverse group of musicians and puts them together on stage simultaneously to
perform songs selected by each member of the group. in the words of tour
organizer amy ray: "the tour is a socialist experiment in rock 'n' roll.
gather a bunch of musicians from different musical genres who are relatively
unfamiliar with each other and see what happens." it's hard to predict whether
ray's experiment will be a revelation or a bust, but that uncertainty is
exactly what separates suffragette sessions from the competition. performers
include indigo girls, ann wilson (heart), lisa germano, jane siberry, kate
schellenbach (luscious jackson), thalia zedek (come), jean smith (mecca
normal), josephine wiggs (breeders) and more. the suffragette sessions tour
comes to town tuesday and wednesday at the riviera theatre, 4746 n. racine
ave. 312-559-1212.
