girls set an indigo mood


by errol nazareth -- toronto sun


indigo girls
molson amphitheatre, toronto
friday, june 16, 2000


it's interesting -- make that questionable -- how some
reviewers have noted that atlanta's indigo girls rock the
house without the aid of testosterone.


as if the hormone exclusive to men is a prerequisite to
lighting up the spot.


i suspect the indigo girls don't care for such nonsense.


neither do they have any interest in proving that women
can rock out too.


if you happen to be one of those sorry guys who still
clings to the belief that a female rocker can't match the
intensity of your fave male artist, you would be nursing a
hole in your chest after the first five minutes of the
indigos' concert at the molson amphitheatre last night.


that's the effect that show opener go boasts.  the
anthem-like, hard-rocking jam that also happens to open
last year's come on now social was nothing short of a
sonic boom.


go also contains these lines: "i know you kids can stand
the rain, i know the kids are still upsetters, 'cause rock
is cool but the struggle is better, go, go, go."


unlike the majority of their contemporaries, amy ray and
emily saliers aren't scared to voice their views in their
music.


they've performed in support of pirate radio stations and
native american environmental groups, and list several
political organizations worth helping in the booklet
accompanying the come on now social disc.


and well before the renewed debate surrounding the
effectiveness of the death penalty in the u.s., ray penned
faye tucker, a poignant song about the first woman executed
by texas since the civil war. the song also happened to be
one of several highlights of their memorable show here.


it's impressive how many flavours their material boasts:
there's the punk feel of compromise, the gorgeous ballads
ozilline and peace tonight, and their sweet acoustic hit
closer to fine, which had everyone standing and singing
along, and others with a celtic or folk vibe.


all were delivered with superb harmonies, style and grace.
