miami herald review of cons:
indigo girls deftly balance guitars, melodies
on their seventh studio album, indigo girls amy ray and emily saliers have
hit a perfect medium of rock guitars, lush harmonies, stylistic expansion and
beautifully crafted melodies that come together for one of the most
satisfactory albums of the season.
  quite often, these aren't the indigo girls many fans are used to, but their
added punch- including backing vocals from joan osborne in go- only
highlights the girls' capacity to do many things and do them well.
  the duo rocks in we are together, also with osborne backing, and then turns
evocative in gone again, where sheryl crow does the honors in the back-ups
over the strumming of a homey banjo.
  there are also the anthems to everywomen everywhere... the kind of stuff
that has made the indigo girls beloved to millions. and of course, there are
personal touches, like ozilline, ray's appalachian-laced tribute to her
grandmother ozilline walker.
  but even here, the girls have a knack for touching the listener, if not
with the lyrics, with the breadth of musicality and thought apparent behind
every chord. this is the kind of growth all pop artists should enjoy.
-leila cobo, miami herald


must go now before the power flashes again!! :)

indigo girls making plans for return of the suffragette tour
http://www.launch.com/features/fs_start/?contentid=4211&contenttype=news&vo=
mnwn


(10/15/99, 7 a.m. pdt) - the indigo girls took an eclectic collection of
female artists out on the road last year for a short trek dubbed the
suffragette
sessions tour. the girls, emily saliers and amy ray, tell launch that
they enjoyed the tour so much the first time out that they're going to put
together a second run for fall 2000.


"we're already talking about making plans for that," sailers said. "it will
probably happen at the end of, or in, the fall--next fall, at the end of our
touring season. we'll wrap it up with something really, really fun. we totally
dug that tour last time."


added ray, "i mean, the suffragettes were, like, just kind of like the best of
every world for us. we played clubs, which we loved doing. we took 12
women...crammed onto a bus, of all different walks of life and music, and we
all tried to get along and learn each other's music...it was intense. i keep
dreaming about it--having weird dreams about suffragettes sessions tour, i
don't know why. so maybe it's a good sign."


the indigo girls' latest album, come on now social, is now in stores. the
duo is on tour, playing asbury park, n.j. tonight. ray and saliers will also
pop up on abc's the view today. check your local listings.


the first suffragette sessions tour featured the indigo girls, gail ann
dorsey, lisa germano, lourdes perez, luscious jackson's kate
schellenbach, jane siberry, mecca normal's jean smith, heart's ann
wilson, former breeders member josephine wiggs, come's thalia
zedek, and japanese acts shonen knife and buffalo daughter.

music for the movement: indigo girls'
latest tour and cd feature ngltf


oct. 14, 1999 the indigo girls, long-time supporters of human
rights and equality for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender
people, have listed the national gay and lesbian task force as
a resource on the cover of their latest cd, "come on now social",
and are distributing ngltf literature during their current tour,
which is taking them to at least 16 locales in 12 states
through october.


the cd, which was released on tuesday, sept. 28, lists ngltf
along with several other human rights organizations: women's action
for new directions, the honor the earth campaign, youth pride,
coalition of environmental federations, z magazine, ms. magazine,
national coalition to abolish the death penalty, and handgun
control, inc. the indigo girls also began distributing ngltf
literature with their sept. 30 concert gig in knoxville, tenn.


the indigo girls and ngltf have a history of supporting each
other's work. in august 1998, the indigo girls joined in the
celebration of the task force's 25th anniversary, donating the
proceeds from a sold-out washington, d.c. performance. shortly
after that, then-ngltf communications director tracey conaty,
joined the indigo girls during the "spitfire tour," which
featured musicians, actors and activists speaking out on
global human rights concerns. and in october 1998, amy ray
of the indigo girls issued a press release through the task
force deploring the killing of matthew shepard.


"i want people to remember that gay people are still hated
because they are gay," said the indigo girls' emily saliers.
"we have come a long way, but we have such a long, long way
to go yet."


ngltf executive director kerry lobel thanked the indigo girls
for their work on behalf of human rights. "the indigo girls'
music lifts us up spiritually, but even more important, the
indigo girls' activism and leadership on behalf of marginalized
and oppressed people offers us a role model as we go into our
communities and do the heavy lifting that is required to move
progressive causes forward," lobel said.

subject: [ig-news] ig show (10/12) boot, and wfuv show


hey all,
i was fortunate enough to tape the 10/12 show.  i think the sound quality is
good, but a little bit too much bass at times, probably because i had the
recorder in a bag on the floor, which was seriously vibrating.  (how's that
for a run-on sentence!)


i also live in the ny area, so i was also able to tape the wfuv radio
interview with rita houston on 10/12.  it was phenominal!  this, i think, is
one interview you will want to have.  ig were on for 40 minutes, they played
a few tunes (peace tonight, gone again,power of two) and talked about some
things that most interviewers don't ask.


i want to set up a tree for both of these, so only those of you interested
(i need about 12) in being a branch please contact me privately at:


d6309@prodigy.net


i hope to get this started soon.
thanks,
donna
