subject: [ig-news] amy ray spoken word tour


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

i requested information about the spitfire tour and this is what i got back:
musicians, actors & activists
come together for first ever
spitfire tour


speakers include krist novoselic (nirvana), woody harrelson (actor), amy ray
(indigo girls), jello biafra (dead kennedy s), exene cervenka (x), kennedy
(mtv) & many more.


the spitfire tour is the first ever package tour of musicians, actors, and
activists speaking out on global affairs.  the spitfire tour was co-concieved
by human rights activist zach de la rocha (rage against the machine).


the spitfire tour, which will be moderated by free speech advocate krist
novoselic (nirvana/jampac), will visit college campuses throughout october.
krist will be joined by a minimum of four other artists per date. the
objective is to expose, enlighten and entertain, while instigating action.


the spitfire tour will have an aggressive and entertaining format which will
include music & video elements.  each artist will receive a minimum of 15
minutes to speak his or her mind, followed by a one hour group q&a session
with the audience. venue capacities range from 2,000 - 12,000 per date, and
tickets will be distributed through each college s campus activities
department.


additionally, after the main event, each artist will partner with an invited
activist to host their own private discussions in smaller 100-200 seat
breakout rooms. tickets to these intimate discussions will only be available
through local charities & activist groups, thus promoting and empowering their
efforts. those not attending these discussions can tour the campus which will
contain booths with local and national charities and political groups.


the spitfire tour is sponsored in part by jampac, mother jones, deep e co,
global exchange, rock the vote, the national gay and lesbian task force, the
national commission for democracy in mexico, and living tree.


the spitfire foundation recognizes the impact that these speakers have upon
their audience.  by personal connections and grass roots interaction, we
believe that positive change can be made.  for more information please visit
spitfire on the web ~ www.spitfiretour.com.

[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo

hey folks,


i've got a selection of items at discounted prices that you may find
interesting. i've listed them below. please write quickly to reserve
what you want because they go fast. i also recently came across some
really great native american hand woven rugs. i am guessing that amongst
us ig folk there might also be some interest in these. i know i've got a
couple happily displayed around the house. to help make rug buying more
fun, i'm offering a $50 credit at fortunate ones records with each rug
purchased. that way you can get a great quality rug and also some music
too. the $50 is good towards anything on this list or anything on the
site including the non-indigo section "junk and conversation."  to check
out the rugs, please visit:


http://www.moonbase.com/fortunateones/navajo/


please note there are two pages and more to come. there are 3 rugs shown
on the first page, which are navajo, and an additional 6 on page 2 which
are different styles - so make sure not to miss the link to "more rugs"
at the bottom of the first page. i also have a few more if you like a
style and want to see other options. please write with any comments or
questions regarding the rugs. i'm just learning about them myself, but
from what i can tell, i've got a pretty attractive price.


if you decide to get a rug, you can spend you fifty on this list, at the
ig section of my site:
http://www.moonbase.com/fortunateones/fortunate.html or the non-indigo
section which is: http://www.moonbase.com/fortunateones/jandc.html

electric factory is a great venue.  it's a huge warehouse.

need my tickets.
set list in no particular order:


roll the dice
tengo la vida
vestigios
power of 2 (em said for everyone to jump up & down like pogo sticks)
mystery
pullin' a cloud
the new gail ann dorsey tune....the name escapes me right now
ziggy
wood floors
love is everything
way below the radio
soon to be nothing
go go go (amy said this is kind of a new song)  (thalia's verse kicked of
course)
sister
in canada
chisel
(possibly 1 more jean smith piece....don't recall)
3 count em yes 3 thalia tunes:
gabrielle
pale light
cimarron


under your skin
cannonball (thalia & amy doing moose sounds)
midnight train to georgia


i may be forgetting something....i'm rushing.....gotta get to class.
they said they're doin' a few extra songs 'cause they were taping.
jane siberry thanked amy & em for puttin' everything together.
she also called lourdes perez a beautiful latin being or something to
that effect.


great show....friendly people.
nobody hounded them after the show at the buses.
more later.........
