for those of you who don't live in los angeles (well . . . in the areas of
l.a. that actually pick up kacd), their live in-studio performance at
studio c will be broadcast in realaudio on the channel 103.1 website.


http://www.channel1031.com


it's about half a minute behind the radio broadcast (i know; i just
checked), but it'll be there.  ;)  just click on "listen live."  heck,
you'll probably get better reception than most people will get off the radio!


again, this'll be on thursday, 4 november, at 4:00 pm pacific time.
(thanks again for the alert, april!)
i'll also be taping it, so . . .


battle on,
shanie

subject: [ig-news] review of cons from q magazine


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


this is a review of cons from the uk's q magazine, december issue:


indigo girls, come on now social


more sensitive songcraft from durable female folk duo.


amy ray and emily saliers have been scribing wordy, wry, quirky little
vignettes about relationships, love and loss for nigh on a decade now, and
their seventh album finds the duo mining this productive seam once again.
they're on good form.  gone again, peace tonight and we are together are
rich in detail and songwriting suss, and their lenthy list of guests
includes sheryl crow, joan osborne, me'shell ndegeocello, natacha atlas and
luscious jackson's kate shellenbach.  it's a skilful outing, but at this
stage one which is unlikely to attract any new devotees.


- - ian gittins.  three stars.


after my shock at actually finding a review of ig's album in the british
music press, i was stunned that it was a favourable review!!  just in case
you're interested, the three star rating is explained as "good.  not for
everyone, but fine within its field."

subject: [ig-news] las vegas and phoenix review


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


okay i have never really written a review before, but since i haven't seen any
regarding the vegas and phoenix shows, i thought i would give it a try.


first the las vegas show at the house of blues is without a doubt the best
concert (ig or otherwise) i have ever seen and i have been to a lot of
concerts in my life (i won't reveal just how many years that is).  it was a 21
and older crowd in a small club with a capacity of around 2000.  general
admission was standing room only on the dance floor which held maybe a 1000
people, so my gf and i were able to get within just a few feet of both amy and
emily.  people just sorta staked out their "standing & elbowroom" territory
and respected each other's space, so it was really cool.  met a few friendly
ig heads, as though they would be anything else.  rose polenzani opened and
the crowd was very enthusiastic.  the ig followed and played nearly all of the
songs on their new cd which were all very well received.  they mentioned the
bass player won $1400 playing the slots.  amy talked about trying to ride her
bike out to the mountains and riding and riding before finally realizing that
she would never make it to the mountains ... they were just too far away. so
she sat down and watched a high school football game and then rode back to
town.  emily talked about her fear of flying before launching into "airplane".
definitely, the hardest rockin' show i have ever heard them played...couldn't
have asked for anything better.  my gf got both a pick and a setlist which is
as follows:


go
trouble
reunion
get out the map
sister
peace tonight
three hits
soon be to nothing
ozilline
closer to fine
shed your skin
cold beer & remote control
compromise
airplane
faye tucker
power of two
shame on you


encore: or (w/ rose), gone again, galileo


ok, whew! this is getting very long ... the phonix gig:


rose opened again with amy coming out and introducing her.  the ig setlist
differed quite a bit from the vegas show ... playing only a few of the newer
songs and a lot of the older stuff.  i got what i wanted saturday and my gf
got what she wanted on monday, so we were both really happy.  emily was really
in a rockin' mood and did the most incredibly guitar work on chickenman that i
have ever heard from her.  in fact, she was jammin' big time on almost every
song.  they both kept remarking on how great the audience response was and
they kept changing their setlist through out the concert.  kevin secola (i
think that's his name) came out and play an intro to eiiot on his flute giving
it a very errie native american kind of feel.  definitely emily's song of the
night while chickenman was amy's, imho (though johnny rotten was a very close
2nd). amy took some gifts from audience
members before leaving the stage, one of which was a big basket of goodies
(cookies, etc.) from a mother and daughter who were attending their 5th ig
show.  when they returned for the encore, amy mentioned that they normally
only played 3 encore songs, but they were going to play 4 ... the extra one
being "you and me of the 10,000 wars" for the mother and daughter.  most of
the concert goers were very cool, but several kids jumped on to the stage
after the concert and started grabbing picks, towels, water bottles, etc.
before the security could get them off.  sulli wasn't very happy after that
and threw the one remaining guitar pick on emily's mike onto the stage floor.
a security guard later threw it to someone.  sulli later came out and gave
some copies of the setlist to someone to pass out to others and my gf managed
to get one.  after that the security guards made everyone leave the building.
okay, the setlist is as follows, but they did mix up the songs a bit and i may
not have the exact sequence down.


go
trouble
reunion
get out the map
chickenman
peace tonight
sister...i think they replaced this song with kid fears
closer to fine
scooter boys
eiiot
ozilline
cold beer
?...amy stuck johnny rotten in here i believe
power of two
faye tucker
least complicated
shame on you


encore: or/kid fears/galileo ... kid fears was replaced with "you and me
of the 10,000 wars" ... can't remember the 4th encore song, sorry


okay, i guess that it.


later, gram

subject: [ig-news] posthoc review


hey folks,


here is the posthoc review that eve mentioned....


- -sherlyn


- ---begin forwarded article---
the great indigo social


come on now social (epic) is musical evidence: amy ray and emily
saliers complement each other as well as any two people can.
saliers and ray, better known as indigo girls, have been pleasing
audiences around the globe for over a decade. with tight
harmonies and songs of conviction, indigo girls have amassed a
devoted following.


on their newest release come on now social, indigo girls whip
their acoustic-based fluidity to a richer consistency and hone
the tenor of their social activism. with strains of bluegrass,
rock, punk and dub, indigo girls have not made the kind of album
that you might expect from them.


"go" rocks the opening and begs to be experienced live. with the
repeated call "don't take a seat/don't stand aside," indigo girls
invoke listeners' activism with electric guitars and more
outspokenness than on any of their previous albums. "go," and
indeed the whole of come on now social, acts as both an
invitation and a command to join-in ray's words, "raise your
hands/raise your hands high." "go"s bold call to action
reverberates in the silence after the first track when a ballad
comes through like a balm. "soon be to nothing" is a song about
healing whose percussion track is reminiscent of stevie wonder;
the electronic beat jars when it comes in after the first verse,
but the beat seeps into the song and completes the ballad in a
way that an acoustic beat could not. follow that experience with
country tune "gone again," a rocker called "trouble," and
haunting soundscape "sister", and you have only just begun to
learn the complexity of indigo girls' music.


the singles released off the album work both together and apart;
where "go" rocks and calls to action, "peace tonight" bops and
calls for a good time. "trouble" would make a great single but,
unfortunately, some people hear "one day the war will stop &
we'll grow a peaceful crop/and a girl can get a wife & we can
bring you back to life" and run from the blatant lesbian content.
indigo girls' candor on social and political issues is neither
new nor extricable from their music, and come on now social shows
indigo girls' ever-increasing outspokenness on the gay rights
facet of the struggle for human rights. come on now social is
both the most openly gay lyric-ed album and the most accessible
album that indigo girls' have made. as the scope of indigo girls'
activism grows wider and deeper, their music does the same.


the song that brings it all together-social commentary, dual
voiced strength, personal tenderness, full band rock-is "cold
beer and remote control." a narrative about working for "the
impossible american dream," this tune is as catchy as the tale of
the american dream, only "cold beer and remote control" is an
illumination and not an illusion. emily saliers' lyrics bring to
light the despair of the working world cycle; singing "i guess it
comes apart so little by little," saliers and ray shine
understanding into the attempts to get by, allow listeners to
glimpse themselves, elucidate one person's story with music and
universality.


what follows "cold beer and remote control" is unexpected and,
in that way, exactly what's needed: a punk tune. from the girls
who first came to us with two acoustic guitars, two voices
blended, and great folky rock songs come electricity and punk
sagacity attended to with indigo girls care. over electric
guitars and aggressive percussion, ray declares "i'm not asking
for a compromise." showing ray's punk urge and indigo girls'
versatility, "compromise" is weathered-and-wise-indigo girls'
activist vigor with an edge sharpened by experience.


indigo girls have found success on their own terms, a
self-assured talent that attracts fans, including fellow artists,
including sheryl crow, joan osborne, me'shell ndegeocello, kate
schellenbach. the artist who seems to have had the most influence
on come on now social, aside from saliers and ray, is co-producer
and percussionist john reynolds. reynolds helps bring a new
rhythm to indigo girls music while remaining true to the roots of
indigo girls expression. reynolds' percussion arrangements add a
new dimension to the music and stretch it in places it might not
have otherwise explored. though seemingly uncharacteristic of
indigo girls at first listen, the percussion and production
explorations successfully augment indigo girls sound, build it
across genre lines and remain true to the artistic source.


with extensive sound palette and familiar indigo girls quality,
come on now social succeeds in drawing even unlikely fans into
indigo girls' ever-expanding audience. come on now social is an
unexpected and exceptional album.


indigo girls will play at the berkeley community theatre november
6th and 7th.

hey y'all!


my girlfriend was in tower records today and picked up this free copy
of some promo cd that i guess is the soundtrack to the new movie with
chris o'donnell, _the bachelor_ and the first song on it is "peace
tonight"!  it folds out and there are pictures of all the album covers
of the bands that contributed (cons being the very first one).  it's
also a cd-rom and has a few videos and automatic web-site links, one of
which is www.indigogirls.com, and another one is www.honorearth.com
(honor the earth).  i have yet to check out the cd-rom, so i don't know
what else is there.  anyway, it's nice to see the girls pop up where i
don't expect them.


have a great week
amy

yes, they are going to be there at *noon* on sunday, november 7th.
everyone show up and support them!    i've heard that they may be be giving
away free promo t-shirts to the first 75 people.   i'm not quite sure what
the actual "number" is, so you might want to call the store and ask them for
more details.
