subject: [ig-news] need tickets for los angeles?


through a strange sequence of events i have ended up with a two tickets for
each of the indigo girls shows at the  los angeles wiltern theater that i am
not going to be able to use, and that i would like to sell for what i paid
for them (face value plus ticketmaster charges):


nov 4th    loge aa 117-119  $96.40  (first row of the balcony)
nov 5th    orch row n 122-124  $81.00 (approx the 21st row from the stage on
the floor, there are two triple letter rows which comprise the pit, five or
six double letter rows behind them, then the single letter rows)


the venue is pretty small and holds around 2000 people, you can view a
seating chart at:

please email if interested.


thanks for the bandwidth,


carolyn

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


                                         the indianapolis star
                                  october 10, 1999 sunday city final edition
new music releases
indigo girls
"come on now social," epic records.  reviewed by staff writer
diana penner.


3 stars
amy ray and emily saliers have a working rhythm down, but it's at
times a little predictable - one from emily, one from amy.  amy's
more edgy, emily's more airy.  the fabric of their music has become
as familiar as a family quilt; it's still comfy, but a little worn.


they have added some new partners on their seventh album for
epic, drawing on lilith fair buddies like joan osborne, me'shell
ndegeocello and sheryl crow.  but they retain their earnest
folk-rock sound, emphasizing their dual harmonies.


ray, in particular, flexes her songwriting muscle, showing
versatility and range.  she's a bit righteous with faye tucker, but
rocks on compromise; introduces us to her grandmother on the
poignant, country-tinged ozilline; and turns in an aw-shucks,
catchy folk song with gone again.


in all likelihood, it'll be emily's songs that get the most
airplay, notably the feel-good peace tonight with its irresistible
melody.

subject: [ig-news] review from atlanta constitution


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


the atlanta journal and constitution october 14, 1999, thursday, home edition


on music: indigos push envelope of folkie soul
by steve dollar, staff


rock "come on now social" indigo girls. epic. 12 tracks. grade: b


bathed in the nervous light of mtv and teased by the perverse transience of
instant stardom, the contemporary music consumer can't count on much. the
pop charts often appear to be the diabolical work of a top-secret cloning
lab, where backstreet boys can be endlessly minted and no one remembers
what songs sounded like without samples.


it's in this atmosphere that atlanta's indigo girls seem almost radical.
not because of their politics. expressed in song, these can be cloying even
when you agree with every fundamentally human right they passionately
espouse. but, simply, because vocalists and songwriters amy ray and emily
saliers do whatever they want, and do it by insisting on an enlightened
southern consciousness that is never at odds with the everlasting urge to
rowdy on down.


"come on now social," the duo's seventh studio album, picks up where 1997's
career-high "shaming of the sun" left off: with a sonic surprise. the
album's opener, "go," adds an urgent layer of clash-style combat rock to
the indigos' always strong harmonies. elsewhere across the cd's dozen
tracks, an all-star studio band (everyone from joan osborne to the band's
garth hudson drops by) continually complicates the songs, which bounce
between mellow romantic reveries (saliers' "peace tonight" and "we are
together") and more pointedly social concerns (ray's no-go-death-row ballad
for "faye tucker," which echoes the like-minded country protest of steve
earle). when the music really swings, it's because the indigos have struck
a perfect balance between the banjo and the beatbox. the album's
highlights, saliers' "trouble" and ray's "ozilline," do just that,
grounding belief in daily experience, finding the weight of the world in a
handful of red clay.

subject: [ig-news] concert review from boston globe


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


                                            the boston herald
indigo girls play with 'fine' energy
by sarah rodman


if hearing your own lyrics sung back to you onstage feels as good as most
rock stars claim, then the indigo girls must be in a constant state of
nirvana.


wednesday night at low-ell's tsongas arena, the primarily female crowd of
5,000-plus raised their voices high and often in a warm, aural embrace of
the georgia duo
and their thoughtful songs of love, hope, fear and pain.


the well-paced, tautly executed 90-minute show satisfyingly covered amy ray
and emily saliers' decadelong musical partnership, including a sizable
chunk of their
superbly diverse new album,  "come on now social."


armed only with acoustic guitars, the girls kicked off with their first hit
and most beloved anthem, "closer to fine," immediately igniting the mass
choir effect.


the tempo and energy took a precipitous jump with ray's revved-up rocker
"go," as their new four-piece backing band took to the stage, beefing up
their rootsy,
acoustic sound.


ray praised the london-based quartet, that also appears on and helped
conceive "come on now social," for "bringing freshness" to the girls' sound.


indeed, blair cunningham's ringing cymbals, caroline dale's resonant cello,
clare kenny's melodic bass lines and carol isaacs' lyrical accordion work
added heft to new
songs such as the breezy, southern "peace tonight," the dreamy ballad "soon
to be nothing" and the searing "faye tucker."


that last song, concerning the first execution of a woman, carla faye
tucker, in texas since 1871, rocked with a bite not normally associated
with the girls, a signature
of this show. the rhythms roiled with electric tension, the cello seesawed
an irish jig, the drums crashed in waves and ray barked out lyrics about
the fight over a
woman's life.


that energy fed into other songs including saliers' "trouble," ray's
appalachian jubilee "gone again" and older songs such as "land of canaan"
and "scooter boys."


as always, the duo's distinctive harmonies, with saliers'  dusky soprano
cradling ray's raspy alto, soared on the acoustic ballads,  especially the
romantic "power of
two."


graciously thanking the supportive crowd, the girls closed triumphantly
with a buoyant "galileo."


the consistently louder, harder-edged rock band the butchies opened to not
quite as much support

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

i saw someone kind of alluded to this earlier, but the ann arbor show on the
official site is a misprint.  i e-mailed the university of michigan ticket
office and they said they had no idea why they put this info up, but the ig
were trying to book a show at eastern michigan.  i guess they succeeded.  so
they are no longer a 5 minute walk away.  darn it!


"i ran as hard as i could, i still ended up here. and it's alright."

subject: [ig-news] the midwest conspiracy


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


hello everyone,
i've done a little research, and here's what i've come up with.
1. chicago 12-5 chicago theater 175 n state street show starts at 8pm.
tickets onsale this saturday at noon through
ticketcrapper/bastard/master...whichever you prefer.
2. indianapolis 12-7 murat theater 510 n new jersey st. ???
ok, here's where the story gets a bit interesting...on the official site
this date and venue is listed...but the link and the phone number are bogus.
i looked up this place on the internet and found the real phone number, but
when i called the lady was really pissed off and said, "we don't know
anything about tickets to this 'indigo girls' concert (she said it really
snooty) you people need to quit calling!" so i naturally started cracking
up....and then she hung up on me. oops. i just pictured her phone ringing
off the hook with people bombarding her with questions about the indigo
girls and when tickets were going on sale....ha! i'm still laughing...
aaaanyway....move on, lia
3. milwaukee 12-8 riverside theater 116 wisconsin ave
tickets go on sale monday oct 25th (414) 224-3000
can anyone else confirm this and let us know what time??
4. bloomington 12-9 indiana university auditorium
ok, i've got a friend at iu who's checking on this one for me...he also let
me know that iu is notorious for cancelling concerts this year...but i'm not
giving up hope. the phone number is (812)855-1103. they said they have no
confirmation of the show yet...so who knows. you can find a map of the
seating at http://iuauditorium.indiana.edu/images/orch.gif or just go to
iuauditorium.com
5. 12-10 i'm not touching this one....there's a show...somewhere in
michigan...ann arbor? eastern michigan university? anyone? what's going on?
6. columbus 12-11 once again, no clue
7. fort wayne 12-12 embassy theater (219)424-5665-i haven't gotten through
to this one yet during office hours...but it sounds legit.
8. dayton???


well, folks, there you have it...8 beautiful promising shows in the midwest,
and only two confirmations so far...someone must have been a little out of
it when they were typing the info in the links from the epic site because i
only got about 2 right numbers i think...oh well...the mysteries continue.
is anyone else as confused as i am, or am i just stressing too much?


keepin it real,
lia

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

a heads up to all the people in the san francisco area:


indigo girls will be making an instore appearance at a tower records in the
san francisco area on sunday, november 7th.   it is unknown whether it will
be a signing, or a performance as of yet.    this is all that has been
confirmed as of right now.  when i find out which tower records (there are 23
in the sf area),  i will let everyone know asap.


now, this is *very* important:


******please do not call the stores, as no more details have been decided
yet.*******


the stores know nothing of this yet.   you will confuse them, and get them
upset.   i was just asked to pass this preliminary info on, so people can be
aware of it, before they make their plans for the weekend.


again, please do not call the stores to try and find out more info.  i will
be informed as soon as the details have been settled, and i will let the list
know as soon as i can.


thanks!
=)

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


hey y'all...


ok, so i was on ebay before and i saw window clings up for sale and someone
was paying an extremely high price for one. now, i've decided to offer to
this list some that i've made. these are full color, quality clings which
you can put on your car, on your window, whatever...to keep costs down i
didn't treat them, so they're only for indoor use. okay, here are the design
descriptions:


1)i'm listening to the
     indigo girls

2) melbourne wrecking crew


3) a+e=ig


4) indigo girls (in rainbow color, hehe)


5) i "love" amy & emily
  (the love will be a red heart)

i'm working on a t-shirt with the melbourne wrecking crew design with
"courting some disaster" on the back which may be available depending on
demand. and also one with a funky peace/moon graphic that on the front says
indigo girls and on the back says "let's make peace tonight in a good time."


(please keep in mind the window clings are not just plain text, but very
vibrant and pleasing graphics :)


okay, so here's the deal: 3 bucks for one or 2 for $5. sorry, it costs
something to make 'em. it would also cost you a self addressed stamped
envelope. (do not forget the sase)


send responses privately back to me-we'll go from there.


peace tonight,


lyndsay

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

ig mp3s...]


www.audiofind.com has mystery on mp3.  just do a search for indigo girls on
the first page.


www.scour .net has:  least complicated, closer to fine, the water is wide
(w/ sarah & jewel), scooter boys, power of two, galileo (live and studio
versions), shame on you, romeo & juliet, and ghost.  if you do a search for
indigo girls this is pretty much what you get plus about 6 pages of burp
sounds from a burp contest.  very strange indeed.


also, http://members.aol.com/sighxx/indigo.html has touch me fall, mystery,
and fugitive (go visit some of the other artists here as well, very
impressive collection of mp3s including bjork, dave matthews, ani, tracy
chapman, tori, steve miller band, fleetwood mac, etc)


that's what i've found in my 10 minutes of searching.  hope that helps.
