i cannot make it to the re-scheduled university of chicago show on march
30. i have 4 tickets available. they are faculty tickets, which means
they cost $25 each. i'd prefer to sell them all at once. so, if you need
four tickets, e-mail me...

subject: [ig-news] lesbians on the loose article


hey folks,


this article is taken from sydney publication "lesbians
on the loose"...

indigo girls
upfront down under


it was hearing an early version of "ghost" on the shores of
rhode island in 1991 that left me smitten and stalking every
record store in new england for an entire year until emily
saliers and amy ray finally put me out of my misery and
released it on "rites of passage".  over the indigo girls'
fifteen year career, they have served up essential
ingredients for lesbian cd collections and girl buskers
worldwide.  the georgia pair delight audiences with their
acoustic driven guitar folk, heartfelt lyrics and lush
harmonies.  emily saliers talked to lotl from new york,
perched on the brink of their third australian tour.


- -- how do you cope with the intensity of over a decade of
writing, performing and touring together? --


we've been friends for a long, long time.  we've been
working together for 20 years, we have plenty of space, and
plenty of time together.  in georgia, i won't see amy
sometimes for a month.  we talk when we have business stuff
to do, we chat, but we don't really have any social thing
at all.


- -- did john reynolds' background as a drummer influence
the overall sound of "come on now social"? --


he's so focussed on the rhythm section, that a lot of
things were cut to time.  also, he knows a lot of
musicians and has a whole world music vibe about him, he
brought a lot of that to us.


- -- has your audience changed over the years? --


it's expanded.  it's a pretty good mix, probably more
women than men, straight and gay.  more and more it's a
younger audience which is great, plus older folks who've
been with us for a long time.  our gay following has been
very strong through the years, especially at the beginning.
it's stronger than ever, and we really appreciate that.


- -- you've worked with an amazing array of characters on the
album and in your career, is there anyone you still aspire
to work with, or anything you'd still like to
accomplish? --


it'd be fun to work with joni mitchell sometime, or maybe
i'll just go on idolising her music for the rest of my
life.  we've met so many great musicians along the way and
i'm sure that'll continue to happen.  rather than making a
wishlist, i think i'll just wait and be pleasantly
surprised.


we'll continue our grassroots activism, and to grow as
songwriters.  we'll be doing some solo projects.  amy's
working on a solo project right now, and i'll probably do
one as well.  we'll just do things to inspire us
individually so we can continue to work together.
