for those of you in iowa or nearby, i figured you might
be interested in this. it's nigc, but since there's not much

hi friends,
there is a large amount of great women's music (or
music by women) coming to eastern iowa in the next few months.
the best way to ensure that iowa keeps having great concerts
and other fun things to do and see is to go out and support

people you think would be interested, and mark your calendars.
thanks!

indigo moves
ballet romances atlanta's favorite shade of blue
by sherri l. mclendon
the indigo girls project, a collaboration between the edgy, socially conscious folk-rock singers and the atlanta ballet, promises a creative cross-pollination of artistic and musical genres. you'll never hear dancing -- or see music -- the same way again.
the culmination of three years' work, the world premiere unites the live performance of rarely performed works by singer-songwriters amy ray and emily saliers with the creative genius of internationally recognized choreographer margo sappington.
the result is "shed your skin," an emotional, interpretive ballet that carves notes and moods into one's consciousness. indigo girls fans will listen in awe to more obscure songs like "least complicated," "caramia" and "touch me fall" when played live and paired with dancing.
"when i chose the songs, i chose for dramatic impact," says sappington, who notes that the requirements for a concert are completely different than those for a dance score. "i tell you, people are going to jump up and scream."
the melding of traditional dance forms with modern dance and pop music is not a new concept. when twyla tharpe's postmodern dancers joined joffrey ballet company members to perform the work "deuce coupe" (1973), with score by the beach boys, her irreverent combinations of high art with popular culture was a decade ahead of the curve that blurs the distinctions between genres. during the 1980s, a second generation of post-modern choreogra- phers emerged, concerned with increasing audiences for dance and strongly influenced by the rise of technology and the music video.
saliers describes the collaboration as a great opportunity to mix artistic mediums. "there'll be some of our fans there, some of the ballet's fans there, and i think it will be a great experience to bring those audiences together."
sappington agrees. a former joffrey dancer who's had an equally impressive career dancing on broadway and creating dances for opera and music videos, she admits to a parti-cular affinity for popular music. in 1993, she created "slide" for the joffrey ballet, a section of the company's highly acclaimed evening-length work billboards, set to a score by rock musician prince.
in "shed your skin," the successful marriage of elements of high and popular culture carries the union of traditionally balletic and modern dance movements into a performance that is elegant, fearless and technically flawless. with phrasing that is more reminiscent of modern dance choreographer doris humphrey than classical ballet's auguste bournonville, "shed your skin" features ballerinas who've long since eschewed the pedestal in favor of dance that requires both lyrical beauty and physical strength. they dance alongside male dancers who may work as often en face (facing the audience) as croise (the traditional angle between profile and en face) when shedding the definition of ballet as a dead or dying art form.
"i was doing a rehearsal when [the indigo girls] came into the room, and i said, '... look what's going on with your music,'" sappington says. "they were completely on my side."
sappington sees the dancers as co-stars with the indigo girls.
"they bring their personalities into the room and dance with their soul. that's what dancing is, you have to dance with your soul. and they do."
"it's a very moving experience to witness your songs being danced to like that, in what seems to be a pretty passionate rendition of the songs," says saliers. "a lot of this thing with the ballet is as much a mystery to us as it is to everybody else. it's a nice artistic surprise waiting in the wings. we're not orchestrating it, we're sort of like invited guests."
the world premiere of the indigo girls project, presented with george balanchine's "serenade," runs oct. 18-21 at the fox theatre, 660 peachtree st. $20-$60. 404-817-8700. www.atlantaballet.com.

so i'm reading this and i'm thinking...
<<indigo girls fans will listen in awe to more obscure songs like "least
complicated,"...>>
huh??
i mean, "caramia" is rightly obscure because it's a bad "mystery" wannabe. i
guess in relation to "closer to fine" and "galileo" pretty much anything
else counts as obscure...
if you're within travelling distance of philadelphia and have an opening on
your calendar thursday night, why not come to our house to see, listen to
and hang out after the show with the wonderful jennifer kimball? you know -
the better half of the story with jonatha brooke. intimate acoustic house
concert, yadda yadda.... not that we're stressing because we just had eight
(8) people cancel on us or anything...
and perhaps more importantly, you get to meet me!! i'll even sort you out
with a couple of free ig bootlegs...

because neil is awesome i must tell you all:
guys, you really do want to go to neil's. (you just weren't aware of it
yet. but that's what i'm here for.) his home is purty, his wife is so
sweet, and the big-and-bad-mr.-neil danced onstage with ig on some video. i
forget exactly which, but i'm assuming it was in london. i think he got
jiggy with a tambourine too. ask him. anyhow, not that such *trivial* igc
should *matter* at all to anyone, and not that any of you are that fanatic,
but just think! you could sit on the couch of the man who danced with emily
saliers. no way. way.
plus you'd see jennifer kimball, who is just the coolest. even if neil
hadn't been touched by an ig, the lovely ms. jennifer would be reason enough
to go.
if i weren't 9 hours away, i'd be there.
you all need to go so i can live vicariously.
i know, jen, too much nigc.
jill

hey everyone!
i bought two tickets to the kris delmhorst concert on saturday night in
somerville, ma at the somerville theater, assuming one of my friends would be
able to go with me. well, this turned out not to be the case! so i have an
extra ticket to the concert, in the left balcony. i'll sell the ticket for
face value, minus ticketbastard charges, $14.50 (i got a student discount as
well, so this ticket is cheaper than the others). please, someone take this
ticket! this concert is going to be amazing, it's her cd release concert and
jennifer kimball and the ry cavanaugh band will be opening for her. i can
just meet you outside the concert to give you the ticket. the seat will be
next to mine anyway.

mi rinda,
"it won't take long" is actually a ferron song. but ig do perform it. i have
it on a complition cd called "spirit of '73: rock for choice" which is from
1995 or so. i don't know if they have it recorded anywhere else. the cd is
great, i love it. and the liner notes have photos of the artists as they
were in 1973, including our beloved ig. from the liner notes: "on january
22, 1973 the supreme court made abortion safe and legal for women in the us
in a historical case called roe v. wade. it is only appropriate that this
wild and diverse compilation of 1970's hits covered by contemporary
female-led bands to benefit rock for choice be titled, "the spirit of '73".
funny aside: i heard this song on the radio today too. only it wasn't by our
girls, i think it was the original ferron version. it was on our local
alternative, community radio station, kboo. but when i heard it my mind went
right to thinking about this version that you ask about. wild huh?
peace, laura (a lurker)

that is a ferron song, and it's on the "spirit of 73" cd - a cd whose
profits went to benefit something to do with abortion rights - very sketchy
explanation, but i can't remember exactly.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

these times are strange and unsettling, and the best antidote -- without a
doubt the hottest ticket in town -- is "shed your skin," a sizzling, defiant
dose of hard-driving attitude gorgeously vocalized by the indigo girls and
interpreted in a fresh, hip, no-holds-barred dance by the atlanta ballet.
this groundbreaking collaboration between the decatur-based rock duo and the
city's 72-year-old classical ballet company takes its name from one of seven
indigo girls tunes that make up the score of the seven-scene work. this could
be the fastest 45 minutes fox audiences have ever experienced. think "rent"
meets "west side story," late in the year 2001.
in margo sappington's gutsy, abstract rock ballet, 19 dancers play eager and
adoring groupies at a rock concert. they're kids itching and skipping to
break loose, then young adults on the verge of unknown tomorrows. unbridled
energy burns. abandon rules. soul-searching and creative self-expression run
rampant.
the combination of sound and movement creates a mood of determination,
euphoria and hope. the indigo girls -- emily saliers and amy ray -- each have
their solos and, as ever, provide lovely harmonies that chill the soul. the
personality-rich atlanta ballet and world-famous duo are equal partners here:
every kick, shimmy and leap, every chord strummed and note sung.
while they rock on, seeming to relish this new experience, the dancers slide
and slither, writhe and wriggle, twist and spin -- and then some. powerful
arabesques, commanding jetes, sky-high extensions and other classic ballet
moves inform the piece, but the undulations don't quit either. mod everyday
clothes are shed (yes, shed before our eyes) for shiny metallic get-ups and
bodysuits -- silver, gold, bronze, rust.
what an exciting way to begin the new season. what a brilliant idea by
artistic director john mcfall, to put the indigo girls and their backup band
live and onstage with his company of energetic, individually expressive
dancers. and what sure-fire vision by sappington, a former joffrey ballet and
broadway dancer, who sifted through the indigos' canon of songs to bring
forth scenes like "scooter boys" (man, are these nine "boys" hot, as in
scorching), "everything in its own time" (terrific balletic tai chi,
especially from wei dongsheng) and "ghost" (an achingly emotional segment
with sensual undercurrents). the full company changes into an array of snazzy
black costumes for the final scene, "touch me fall," which is rigorous and
eloquent in equal measure, building in intensity just as the indigos drive it
home, too.
it's almost mystifying to recall that these same dancers began the evening
exhibiting their long years of training in an elegant staging of george
balanchine's 1934 neoclassical "serenade," set to tchaikovsky's serenade in c
major for string orchestra. there were lots of willowy arms, light and lovely
footwork and a series of pretty and unusual poses for the corps of
ballerinas. were these lovely ladies in sheer-blue romantic (ankle-length)
tutus really the same ones who were about to rock out with the indigo girls?
hard to believe, but true, and spectacular.

i have to agree with dee. it really was an amazing show....and if nothing else it is worth the cost of the ticket just to hear caramia and touch me fall with a full orchestra! you will not be disappointed, for sure. either run to the fox theater box office or saddle up to ticketbastard on-line. this one is really not be missed.....only 5 more chances left.....

when sending messages to this list, please don't use html or rich text
format (i've noticed the latter from several hotmail users). not everyone
can read it (some folks use telnet/pine, which is incapable of displaying
anything but plain text properly), and your rtf message has the annoying
habit of appearing as an attachment when we try to include it in our reply.
ohh listen to me gripe. down with technology.
so. if you're using hotmail, here's how to turn it off:
whenever you hit 'compose' or 'reply,' there's a little box marked 'tools'
to the upper left hand of the box in which you type your message. click on
the arrow and select 'rich-text editor off.'

hey,
let me add my agreement that this show is well worth seeing, especially since
it's a on-off project that won't be done again after this weekend. hopefully,
they'll record it. it's very interesting. i enjoyed the "shed your skin"
section a lot more than the traditional ballet "serenade" that precedes it (but
i'm not a big ballet fan).
one of the things i wasn't sure about beforehand was what to wear. i wound up
wearing a jacket with no tie over a dress shirt and brown jeans. some people
had on a full suit and others were totally casual. onstage, the orchestra
members had on dressy black outfits (which, i guess, is traditional so they
don't upstage the dancers). emily was also decked out in a dressy black
shirt/pants outfit and the backup band was in black, also. amy, however, had on
a print shirt and blue jeans like she would at any other show. since they're
featured performers and not really supporting musicians, i'm not sure which look
was more correct but the two of them weren't on the same page.
i sat way up in the balcony, which on the one hand was pretty far away but on
the other hand was probably better because you got a better vantage point to see
all the dancers than if you were at groundlevel with "better" seats. it all
worked really well. for the first song, "least complicated" amy and emily were
all the way out at the front of the stage on their own. for all the other
songs, they were on an elevated stage with the band with the dancers to the
right and the orchestra in the pit below the front of the stage. there wasn't a
whole lot of orchestral accompaniment. there was some in "caramia" and "ghost"
and a lot in the finale, "touch me fall". the interpretation of "ghost" was
especially moving. "scooter boys", "shed your skin" and "touch me fall" were
all also really good.
in the stagebill, they described amy and emily as actively promoting several
causes but didn't mention gay rights. i had wondered whether they would mention
that since that's usually the first thing that gets mentioned when there's a
brief bio of them. the other thing i wondered was about the choreography. all
of the paired-up dancing was male/female as it turned out. there was one guy
who danced all of his numbers in a skirt but even his paired-up dance partners
were female. guess they didn't want to scare away the traditional ballet
patrons they're trying to woo.
the whole program is very short (under two hours including a long, half-hour
intermission). the "shed your skin" portion is listed as running 40 minutes. i
wouldn't oversell the experience. it's not really an ig concert. they're
pretty reigned-in and can't talk between songs or anything. but you're not
going to see anything like this any time soon so make the effort to catch it if
you can. for what it is, it's very good.

actually during "ghost" the scenes in the back included one male/female
couple, one female/female couple and one male/male couple...

just had to share my fabulous evening...i went to see the b52s play tonight,
and it turned out that sara lee was playing bass. my friend and i were very
excited and waved at her (my friend mouthed "are you sara lee?" at which
point sara laughed--after that, she was smiling at us for the rest of the
show). after it was over, we went to go meet her, and a friend working
backstage said she had already headed off to the dressing rooms (he pointed
us in the direction, though)--we were headed off to find her when she pulled
up, got out of a van, and told us she was looking for us!!!!
she gave us a cd, and thanked us for being so enthusiastic...
it was so awesome!!!!
had to share my wonderful somewhat indigo related night with y'all!
peace,

subject: mp3 of the week: melissa
hi everyone!

this week's mp3 of the week is melissa (taken from the bootleg cd
"history of us").
if you'd like to get the file just drop me a line about it. in case
you'd like to be included on the mp3 list (you'll get the mo3s
regularly without having to ask for each one), please let me know.
here are the lyrics:
melissa

crossroads
seem to come and go
the gypsy flies from coast to coast
knowing many, loving none
bearing sorrow, having fun
but back home he'll always run
to sweet melissa
freight train
each car looks the same
all the same
no one knows the gypsy's name
no one hears his lonely sighs
there are no blankets where he lies
in all his deepest dreams the gypsy flies
with sweet melissa
again the morning's come
again he's on the run
sunbeams shining through his hair
appearing not to have a care
pick up your gear and gypsy roll on
roll on
crossroads
will you ever let him go
will you hide the dead man's ghost
will he lie beneath the clay
will his spirit float away
but i know that he won't stay
without melissa
yes i know that he won't stay
without melissa


take care,
kathrin
