hey all... just wanted to point you to a new site that's got great
discussions on everything under the sun, including the indigo girls.


a friend of mine works there, and i know they're looking for new users, and
they're giving away stuff in a contest if you register. obviously, it isn't
going to circumvent the newsgroup here, but it might be fun...


you can find the discussion at:
http://www.realdiscussions.com


in the music section, under "artists"


looking forward to maybe seeing some of you there!

amy ray: daemon records by russell hall
***coppied without permission***


   when it comes to big label record deals, you can take the artist out of
the indie world, but you can't always take the indie out of the artist. just
ask amy ray. after spending several years recording for an independent label
herself, ray, as one-half of the popular folk duo the indigo girls, signed to
epic in 1989. a year later, she became smitten with the idea of starting a
non-profit label whose roster would include some of her favorite songwriters.
in the midst of the indigo girls' first major-label tour in 1990, she founded
the small atlanta-based company, daemon records.


during the nine years since daemon's inception, the label has concentrated
mostly on signing acts located in the southeast. in return for distribution
and publicity (and, of course, the status conferred upon them by the label),
artists are expected to tour regularly, and to take
primary responsibility for overseeing their own careers. among the artists
currently on the roster are danielle howle, terri binion, belloluna, ph
balance, and 6x all of whom are based in or near the burgeoning atlanta
market. future plans include expanding the roster to include a handful of
acts located in other parts of the country as well. recently, ray talked
about the manner in which daemon was founded, as well as its history and
philosophy.

subject: [ig-news] sigc: aclu documentary


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

hi all,


just stepping out of lurkdom long enough to comment on the documentary
that i just finished watching on pbs.  it was done by the aclu.  i think
it was called "after stonewall".  don't quote me on that though.  if
anyone knows the real name of the documentary, i would love to know what
it is so i can buy it.


the ig content comes in this- there were scenes from the viseo "joking"
and shots of ig during a past rally at washington dc.  i believe they
were singing finlandia.  they showed several shots of the crowd.  there
were some people with tears in their eyes while the girls were singing.


i have to admit that lately i haven't cared for much of the new stuff
that ig has been doing.  it has been a long time since i pulled out my ig
cd's.  after seeing this documentary and seeing those people, feeling the
chills go down my spine when i heard amy and emily sing accapella, it all
came back to me.


the documentary was truly amazing.  i highly recommend it to anyone gay
or straight that is interested in seeing a great history on the continued
struggle for gay rights.


thanks,
allison
