this article is a few weeks old but i don't think anyone has posted it.
also, i noticed a few days ago that the duke show has been removed from the
tour sections of both ig web sites and the michelle malone site (she was the
opening act).  anyone know if the show has been canceled?  perhaps they are
trying to limit advertising so the public won't crash the party...  if anyone
knows what's going on here, please email me.

indigo girls commit for last day of classes bash


jaime levy
march 29, 2000
- -------------------------------------------


if you don't go to this year's last day of classes concert then la, la, la...
"shame on you."


the indigo girls verbally committed monday to play at the april 26 last day
of classes celebration. the two-woman folk band, which is passing through
durham before concerts in asheville, n.c. and myrtle beach, s.c., will
perform on the cambridge inn quadrangle, campus council representatives
announced.


"this is on their way," said trinity sophomore vik devisetty, chair of the
last day of classes celebration. "it's a good opportunity to play at a
college, to get their music out."


some students were excited that they could listen to the harmonizing duo of
amy ray and emily saliers strum their guitars on the quad, but others were
skeptical that the group would attract a homogenous crowd.


"i definitely like them-i'll definitely go...," said leah trabich, a trinity
sophomore. "i think all of my friends will go."


although the indigo girls have a strong fan base among college-aged women,
many students were concerned that the group will not appeal to a broad
audience.


"i think for an event like the last day of classes, when a concert is free
and you're looking for something to unite the whole student body, you should
concentrate on groups that have an eclectic fan base," said trinity sophomore
brian washington.


indeed, some students said they would not attend the concert-despite the fact
that it's a free event.


"i'm not happy," said trinity senior gianna moreno. "i don't particularly
like the indigo girls. they're too folky.... it'll be fun regardless, but i
probably won't stick around for the show."


unlike last year's celebration-which included performances from vertical
horizon, naughty by nature and fastball-the indigo girls bring only their
opening act. devisetty said he will not know who the opening act is until he
signs the band's $35,000 contract.


procuring a big act was campus council's top priority this year.


"it's the entire goal of the event to bring a band that students will enjoy.
[but] no matter what band we [bring], we will never please everyone...," he
said. "we had more money this year, and we wanted a band with lots of name
recognition and a band that people enjoy listening to."


this year, devisetty said, campus council solicited input from students in
choosing a group. after compiling preference lists from all the quad
councils, campus council pursued several groups-including the roots, live,
third eye blind and tonic-before settling on the indigo girls. the other
groups were either booked or did not want to play at duke, devisetty
explained.


in 1997, the group backed out of an april senior concert in cameron indoor
stadium after canceling an entire leg of its tour. because a contract had not
been signed when the band canceled in march, the duke university union and
east campus council were left scrambling to find a replacement. more
recently, the band canceled a tour of australia while indigo girl amy ray
underwent surgery.


campus council vice president jim lazarus said he was not terribly worried
about losing the concert at the last minute.


"most of the reasons they've canceled aren't anything we can worry about...,"
said the trinity junior. "it's a concern, but not one that's standing out in
my mind."
