this is the information that was posted on the view's website, as a recap of
the show yesterday.

indigo girls
cd: indigo girls come on now social


indigo girls are emily saliers and amy ray. they write their songs
separately, but both say that most of their lyrics are autobiographical and
come from self-experience. emily says that both the music and the message are
important to her. she takes a lot of time when writing, hoping that the music
and lyrics fit each other. amy feels the same way, adding that she uses music
to get across a lighthearted feel to what she's trying to say. their new
song, "peace tonight," which they performed on the show, is a feel-good song
about creating peace in the world just by being good to each other.

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

hi all,


i just found out the utah concert info.  finding it
out was like pulling teeth, about zero publicity.
anyway, here goes: the concert is at utah state
university in logan at the spectrum arena.  tickets go
on sale monday october 18 at 9:00 a.m.  tickets can be
purchased at the spectrum box office, or the taggert
student center info desk or can be charged by phone at
1-888-878-2831.  prices are 21.25 for students, 27.50
for everyone else.  students may buy two tickets at
that price and the tickets must be bought at the
taggert student center with a valid id.  to charge by
phone you need a visa, mastercard, or discover card.
if you want to hear the recorded message call the
number above and press 4.  don't ask me about
directions because i live in salt lake and don't know
my way around logan.


good luck,
diana

subject: [ig-news] ig asbury park review (10/17) ...  indigo girls in the ghetto


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


folks, don't know how else to say this, but asbury park was a total ghetto.
the venue was very run down.  the neighborhood had bombed out buildings,
houses all boarded up...it was bad.  cars with the wheels stripped off.  the
question i kept asking myself is why ig would play a show in a place as bad
as asbury park.  the only good thing was that it was on the ocean....


opener:  ph balance.  everytime i see them i'm a little less thrilled.


fashion:
emily--camo pants, white shirt, blue/black checked overshirt, black leather
boots.
amy--black nylon pants, print silk top, blue suede shoes.


setlist:
go
trouble
chickenman
everything in it's own time
gone again
peace tonight
kid fear's
closer to fine
ozilline
soon to be nothing
shed your skin
cold beer and remote control
johnny rotten
philosphy of loss
get out the map
sister
least complicated
shame on you


encore:
wood song
faye tucker
galileo


highlights:
chickenman--always good to see live!  amy did a little ditty and threw in
some fun extra lyrics.  but no soc.


everything in it's own time--i hadn't heard this one since the winter tour
of 1997.  i still love this song!  emily was on a roll about republicans and
how evil they are (never mind the bastard in the white house).  she
introduced the song by talking about the fact that the republicans wouldn't
ratify the nuclear test-ban treaty.


johnny rotten--amy blows me away.  this song is amazing.  we really do need
to get a killer boot of her doing this!


philosophy of loss--this is the first time i'd ever heard emily do this one.
  it's even more haunting than it is on the album.


wood song--finally!!!  i finally get to hear this one live.  excellent!  it
was funny, amy had her guitar tuned to funky mix between wood song and
virginia woolf.  emily stopped her in the middle of the first verse and they
started over.


one of the better indigo girls shows i've ever been to.  it wasn't better
than the 3rd night at the beacon, but it came close.  the audience was
definitely into this show.  the girls pulled our energy onto the stage and
delivered an incredible performance.


i'm a little sad that this was the last show i'm going to see for another
three weeks, but what a way to end it!!!!


that's the review...


cheers,
l'sly

pretty interesting.

don't know if you are thinkin' about going to the eau claire concert on
the 3rd of dec, but i just called the "service center" (apparently they
will be selling the tickets-phone #715-836-3727) and was told that it
has not yet been decided when tickets will go on sale (i say this is
not an acceptable answer!), but that yes, tickets will be available to
the general public and will cost $27.  what i don't know is whether or
not tickets can be charged over the phone (does not sound like
ticketmaster is involved at all)...

good luck--

indigo girls' 'tale of two producers'


indigo girls' new album, come on now social, could just as easily
have been titled "a tale of two producers," with a happy ending
to a troublesome situation.


the georgia duo started working on the album in london with
sinead o'connor sideman john reynolds, who the indigos met during
the 1998 lilith fair tour. they then returned to the u.s. to
record with malcolm burn, which is where things got a little,
well, anti-social.


"he really is brilliant," indigo girl amy ray says of burn, who's
still credited and plays on some of the album's tracks. "it's just
that he wants to do things a certain way and he won't bend at all,
and i just can't work in an environment like that. i have to work
in an environment where everybody bends. i do like him; it just
wasn't the right experience."


burn wound up making a valuable contribution to the album,
however. "he did force us to have confidence in our own vision,"
ray says. "i think what it helped us do was figure out that, well,
we want to grow but we don't necessarily have to put it into
someone else's hands in order to do that. we have enough
confidence and experience to grow on our own, to say, 'this is how
we are. this is how we work.' we don't want to have a negative
experience making a record."


the indigos re-recorded and finished most of come on now social
with reynolds, while "gone again" was recorded in woodstock, n.y.,
with drummer jerry marotta and band members garth hudson and rick
anko. sheryl crow contributed background vocals to that song as
well.


"it was kind of a disparate experience, but in the end we kept it
together," ray says. "i think the fact that we had to keep changing
horses in the middle of the stream and all this stuff was probably
a hard thing but a good thing in the end, 'cause it forced us to
examine and re-examine over and over again our approaches to the
songs, which i think made them all better."

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

an unauthorized reproduction of the featured album of the week on xpn. org
(a radio station out of philly, harrisburg, and baltimore; forgive me, if
neil already posted this):
http://xpn.org/sections/featured_album_current/featured_album_current.html


indigo girls, come on now social
review by bruce warren, xpn programming director and world cafe producer


over a ten-year period of inspired recordings, amy ray and emily saliers
have created an instantly recognizable sound and a singular place in
american music.


come on now social, which features many guests including sheryl crow, joan
osborne, and me'shell ndegeocello, is as bold, reflective, original, and
introspective as the work that made the indigo girls famous. faithfully
committed to "life issues," such as women's rights, protection of the
environment, the rights of indigenous people, and gun control, the indigo
girls continue to speak out on the new album. addressing the inhumanities of
the death penalty on "faye tucker," amy and emily tell the story of the
first woman to be executed in the state of texas since the civil war.


come on now social showcases a wonderful new collection of music from two of
america's most beloved singer/songwriters. as love songs and battle cries
intertwine with social commentary, old and new fans alike will march to the
beat of the indigo girls.

date: fri, 15 oct 1999 20:02:40 -0400


reviewed by steve dougherty
they may not pack the cultural jolt the electrified dylan once did, but it
is still something of a shock to find a pair of dyed-in-the-flannel folkies
like the indigos blasting away on plugged-in guitars. the grammy-winning
folk duo of amy ray and emily saliers has been putting out amped-up albums
for a few years now, but they've never before rocked out as smartly as they
do on "go," the sinewy, reverberating opening track of this, their seventh
major label release. here they present the song's call to neo-feminist
action ("don't take a seat/don't stand aside/ this time don't assume
anything") as the kind of brainy power ballad that their athens, ga. ,
neighbor, r.e.m.'s michale stipe, might sing. other candidates for radio
play include "trouble", propelled by an updated bo diddley beat, and "peace
tonight," a brightly wrought mid-tempo rocker that showcases the girl's
harmonies in a sparkling pop setting. revered by fans for their lovely
vocals and topical, passionate songs, they've also been knocked as overly
earnest. dispersed among tunes like the country rocker "cold beer and remote
control" and the harder "compromise" are more traditional, country flavored
acoustic ballads that shine. closing the album with an old timey-
irish-appalachian reel, the girl's show they've come a long, long, way baby,
with an eerie industrial hidden track. bottom line: colorful outsiders shoot
for pop's mainstream.
