subject: [ig-news] igc "forever dusty!"


just a heads up...

i'm helping start a spare (as if) time side project called r&d records
("better listening through research and development").  


our first project (which you may have heard about or read about in billboard,
the advocate, curve, etc.)is called "forever dusty! homage to an icon."  this
first-ever recorded tribute to dusty springfield is full of great music.  
packed with all-new recordings of the songs dusty did (all the hits you know
and love...and some choice obscure nuggets), forever dusty! features 17 top
female artists/groups.  here's the list:


laura love band (seattle)
the butchies (durham nc)
indigo girls (atlanta)
jill sobule (nyc)
zrazy (dublin)
gail ann dorsey (nyc)
marti jones (canton oh)
michell malone (atlanta)
vicki randle (los angeles)
sonia of disappear fear (baltimore)
jennifer kimball (boston)
cath carroll (chicago via london)
ana egge (austin)
kate pierson of b-52s (nyc)
lord douglas phillips featuring gretchen phillips (austin/nyc)
sara lee (nyc via london)
mrs. fun featuring janet planet (milwaukee)


a good group of gals, that's for sure.  by the way, we're earmarking a
portion of proceeds to breast cancer organizations, so there's a nice added
bonus.  anyway, the recordings are all done and ready for replication.  we're
talking with some fine folks right now about distribution opportunities...so
once that's decided i'll let you know what the actual and real street date is
(prob. 9/28).

thanks, rebekah.

hey folks,


again, please excuse the bulk posting...


thanks to the wonderful efforts of jeff wasilko (mr smoe
himself), smoe is now back online.  however, jeff did
mention that there was a slight problem with his isp's
mail queueing service that may have caused some queued
mail to bounce on sunday.  so, if you received an error
message saying "returned mail: too many hops" yesterday,
just go ahead and resend your message...


cheers,
sherlyn

subject: [ig-news] igc and nigc: '99 spitfire tour


[sherlyn's note: this is an excerpt of a message which was
originally sent to the indigo girls mailing list at
netspace.org.  note that apparently the url given in the
ad doesn't work...]


igc:  i think this was mentioned before, but. . .


i was flipping through the july/august issue of mother jones and on the
inside back cover is an ad for the upcoming 1999 spitfire tour, including a
picture of amy taken from last year.  amy has reportedly committed to the '99
tour.  the ad says the short fall 1998 tour, which included two amy-attended
dates, was a "pilot" for the upcoming fall 1999 tour, a 20-city national
college tour.  (for those interested, i have a boot of amy's clemson u.
speech about gay issues, at which she also performed "go")


see the spitfire site for more details:

peace and indiglowing love,
anna

howdy all,


just thought i'd post another little encouragement for all of you who have
contemplated sending something in...


in light of our donation quota thus far, we've decided that it would be in
everyone's best interest to scrap the regions idea.  to date, the fundraiser
has raised approximately $900, all thanks to the actions of two very generous
listees.  seattle's ryan blackhawk is in the lead with $650 (and
counting...), and diva java solis & her dreamcatchers are in second with
$250.  from this point on, winning listees will be judged by donation size
only (this way if someone from ny sends in $50, and a listee from the pnw
donates $5, we'll have a way to differentiate who is in higher running for
the prizes).
speaking of which, i just wanted to remind all of you that we still have a
bevy of gifts to give away.  since we only have two donators thus far, any
size donation will be in the running for a prize at this point.  to recap:


~ the top ten donors will receive an advanced tour intinterary for honor2000,
listing yet un-publicized venues & dates, as well as an official hte 100%
hemp tour poster, autographed by amy and emily.
~ the top three donators (as well as being awarded the above) will be given
an autographed press photo and two golden circle tickets to the indigo girls
show of their choice (this being in the 1999 fall tour)
~the top overall donator will receive an advanced tour itinerary, an
autographed tour poster, a $250 gift certificate to the freemont hemp company
(accessible over the web), a tour t-shirt, an autogrpahed press photo, a
signed copy of the newly released cd and two golden circle tickets to the
indigo girls show of their choice.  a personal thank you note directly to the
donator from both amy and emily will be written on one of the autographed
items.


just to be clear:  there are 14 prize packages total, and we have only two
competeing donors.  that means at this point a donation of $5 will get you
one of the 12 remailing prizes (potentially golden circle tickets).


checks and money orders to be made out to honor the earth/the tides center.
receipts will be available for tax purposes for contributions over $100.
donations may be sent to:


honor the earth fundraiser
c/o greta gohn & kristen mcelveen
621 house wren circle
palm harbor, fl 34683


remember, the fundraiser ends on august 30th.  all donations that want to be
counted in the final total must be in the mail by the 25th.  feel free to
email me with any questions.


thanks for bearing with me again y'all.  you rock.
