subject: [ig-news] news! ig article in boulder's colorado daily


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

there was an interview with a+e in a local paper over the weekend.  it's
long, so i can't type the entire thing right now and i couldn't find it
archived on the website.  it discussed cuba, the new album, the
suffragettes tour, daemon, etc...  i will transcribe a few sections with
important news and info:


***
current projects


the indigo girls have never been shy about their political stances and are
currently working on a boycott of the phillip morris company, best known
for its marlboro cigarettes, as well as virginia slims and others.  ray
said that tobacco companies have lost so many of their advertising
avenues that they've started doing things like giving money to local
charities to improve their community profiles.


"it's kind of like you're donating money to an aids organization, or a
gay-oriented organization even, and at the same time you're giving money
to the campaigns of right-wing political candidates who are gutting
welfare and aids research and medicare.  it's back ass-wards!"


"virginia slims has been sponsoring these dueling divas rock-off contests
with women's bands and the winners get some money and some local
charities get some money," ray said.  "and so basically, we're trying to
say to these bands, 'don't do these contests, they're buying you.'  we're
trying to influence organizations to reapproach who they take money from.
because it's dirty money."


"it's hard because these organizations really need this money because so
much of their money has been pulled by politicians in office that
influence those thing, who are voted in by phillip morris money."


so the indigo girls have made some connections and written up some fact
sheets and are talking to the winners of these contests and trying to get
them not to take the money.  in many instances, the indigo girls are
coughing up the prize moneys to pay the bands and organizations instead.


the artists who win also have to sign contracts that prevent them from
ever saying anything bad about tobacco, ray said.  the indigo plan is to
go to the cities where these contests are happening and try to drum up
support for a boycott.


***


the future


after lilith fair, the indigo girls will strike out with the new band on a
tour to promote "come on now social," which will hit record stores the
third week of september.


"we start full force in september," saliers said, "and we'll go up until
the holiday season.  we may go back to australia at the beginning of the
year.  we're planning on doing some (outdoor shows), some college dates,
some rock 'n' roll club tours."


"we'd also like to do the suffragette sessions tour again," saliers said.
the suffragette sessions took place after the last indigo girls touring
season, when saliers and ray hooked up with about 12 other women
singer/songwriters and learned each other's songs.  they took to the road
and played a series of small clubs.


"we'll do that again sometime next year," ray said.


ray also said that there will definitely be another honor the earth tour,
probably next summer or the following fall.  the first honor the earth
tour took place across the country on american indian reservations with
all the proceeds going to grassroots indigenous organizations.  that tour
resulted in an album, compiled of various mainstream and native american
musicians, which is available on ray's daemon records.  ray said there may
or may not be a second album produced from this next tour.


so indigo fans, don't miss the girls at this year's lilith festival in
denver.  but if you do, don't worry, they'll be back.  colorado is a
shoe-in for the upcoming "come on now social" tour, saliers said.  "we
always go to colorado.  we love playing colorado."

subject: [ig-news] wanted:  cdr tree admin


hi,


i am creating a series of high quality cdr's of
various indigo girls performances from over the years.
the first cdr is finished, and i was wondering if
there is anyone out there who might be interested in
starting and administering the cd tree for the disc,
and possibly and/or for future discs.  


i would prefer someone who has participated in a tree
before and knows how much work is involved in setting
one up and running it.  essentially i would provide
the source disc and then the rest would be up to you.


please don't email me directly requesting copies of
the cdr, i am asking someone else take care of the
tree so that i can start work on the next disc.  i
promise we will do our best to make sure everyone who
wants one gets a copy.


please email if interested in taking care of the tree.


thanks for the bandwidth and have a good day,


janet doe

subject: [ig-news] denver lilith


[sherlyn's note: this is an excerpt of a message which was
originally sent to the indigo girls mailing list at
netspace.org.]

i hadn't seen any other posts about lilith in denver, so i thought i
would provide my own short review.  i attended the sunday show.


the weather was beautiful.  the venue was fantastic!  i couldn't believe
how beautiful fiddler's green was.  who would have suspected that a
place that fantastic was planted in the middle of denver tech industrial
area.  we stayed at the hilton and walked to the venue.


[...]


ig came out.  they looked good, they smiled, they laughed.  amy in
jeans, boots - i love that look.


i was in a section very close to the stage and got photos.  i'll let you
guys know if they come out.  i also have the set list at home - sorry,
i'm at work and i'm getting ready to leave for three weeks for a trial
in a tiny town in southern new mexico.  they only played two of the new
songs - faye tucker and gone again (with sheryl crow).  they started out
with shame on you, galileo, shed you skin, love's recovery (with sarah).
i wanted more indigo girls, but it just wasn't meant to be.  they did
rockin' in the free world with k's choice.  everyone came out for closer
to fine.  love rockin' in the free world with k's choice.  really love
k's choice, too.
