indigo girls kick off central park
summerstage series in n.y.
joan osborne and members of spearhead join them for encore
of 'midnight train to georgia.'


correspondent diane gershuny reports:


new york ^ "this was supposed to be our summer tour,"
amy ray said, laughing, as she and musical partner emily
saliers greeted a bundled-up crowd on a damp and chilly
evening at the central park summerstage opening concert
tuesday.


(click here for an overview and the schedule of the
summerstage concert series.)


the indigo girls kicked off the evening with "peace
tonight," from their current epic release, come on now
social.


the masses of people surrounding the stage were on their
feet from the first note. as night fell and the stage
lights went up, the front line of enthusiastic fans, bathed
in a luminous light, seemed to hang on every lyric and note.


the girls rolled through material from their 10-year
career ^ including new tunes such as "gone again," "faye
tucker" and "ozilline" (realaudio excerpt) as well as
tried-and-true classics such as "closer to fine," which
became an aggressive audience sing-along, and "galileo."


they also dusted off "kid fears" from 1991's back on the
bus, y'all.


the first of many guest performers showed up early, with
joan osborne contributing harmonies to the opening number,
"peace tonight." (osborne, with sheryl crow, kate
schellenbach of luscious jackson, meshell ndegeocello and
others, appeared on the indigo girls' come on now social.)


on "shed your skin," a hip-hop-like track from 1997's
shaming of the sun, the band got a funky lift from show
opener spearhead's saxophonist. and an atmospheric version
of "virginia woolf," from 1995's 1200 curfews, sung by
saliers, featured crow's violinist lorenza ponce.


"get out the map," also from shaming of the sun, drew
cheers from the audience, some of whom waved homemade signs
at the band. but when they tore into "go" (realaudio
excerpt) and invited the audience to raise their hands, the
predominantly female crowd did just that, and a blanket of
outstretched hands swayed in time to the tune.


"i wrote this because i was upset with the church," saliers
explained in an extended intro to "philosophy of loss." as
she accompanied herself on acoustic guitar, she verbalized
her feelings about the church's unwavering stance on
homosexuality.


over the course of their career, the indigo girls often have
found themselves enmeshed in controversy because of their
social activism ^ last week, for instance, they played at
a concert in washington, d.c., in support of "pirate" fm
radio stations. in past years, concerts they've scheduled at
southern schools have come under fire from authority figures
wary of their sexuality.


at one point during the evening they were joined by come on
now social co-producer john reynolds, who coincidentally was
in town. also sharing the stage was the stellar band featured
on the recent cd: carol isaacs on keyboards, accordion and
percussion; matt brubeck on cello and percussion; clare kenny
on bass and vocals and blair cunningham on drums.


loved not only for their lilting, ethereal harmonies but also
for their unabashed honesty, the indigo girls scooped up
flowers offered from gushing fans at the close of the show.


the encore began with singer/songwriter rose polenzani ^
signed to ray's label daemon ^ with ray and saliers
providing harmonies. then, with lights blazing, all the guest
artists ^ from the members of spearhead to osborne ^
returned for a rendition of gladys knight and the pips'
"midnight train to georgia," a song the girls included on
1200 curfews.


the indigo girls show was the first of three benefit programs
scheduled over the course of the summer to support the
otherwise free, multicultural, multimedia summerstage series,
which is celebrating its 15th anniversary this season.
(sonicnet.com is a sponsor of summerstage.)

subject: [ig-news] 6/15 artpark concert- setlist


hi folks,


just got back from the artpark (lewiston, ny) concert.  fantastic show!  i
originally didn't think i was going to be able to make it, so i didn't buy
a ticket...at the last minute, my conflicts freed up.  at 10 am this
morning, there weren't any orchestra pit tickets available online.  by
10:30 am the front row freed up, so i was a happy guy!


the show was a lot of fun (a little too much fun for one girl who jumped up
onstage during galileo).  emily looked a bit tired.  amy looked great.  she
was wearing great boots.  uh, but anyway, the setlist....


trouble
gone again
power of two
shed your skin
cold beer and remote control
ozillene
love's recovery
romeo and juliet (amy solo)
peace tonight
chickenman
philosophy of loss (emily plus band)
go
least complicated
strange fire (by request, go nancy and company!)
midnight train to georgia (yes!!  with openers spearhead and kelly hogan)
shame on you
closer to fine


encore:
faye tucker
galileo


during georgia, the previously mentioned hyperactive girl put her arms
around me and didn't let go.  i didn't quite know what to think.  :-)


all in all, a great show.  i dove over two rows and under the third to get
a pick.  hello to all the nice people i met during and after the show
('specially nancy, my dancing partner).


jason
