hkf's,

just got an e-mail back to confirm something i already
heard and wanted to let everyone know.  so how do we
get those free tix's for the saturday night ig show
(along w/ those other songwriters)?  well, here's what
tara murphy from 360 media said:

"you can get still get a ticket on saturday at the
festival by stopping by your favorite radio station
broadcast booth as they will all be giving away what's
left."

and my translation is that when she says 'on saturday'
she means you can get it at the festival including
also on friday since imho these tix's will run out
fast (hence the "what's left" part at the end).  so
when you get inside music midtown run to the nearest
z93, 96rock, or 99x booth to get your free ticket.
good luck!!!  (i'll need it too!)

ps:  always take marta: www.itsmarta.com

subject: [ig-news] gogirls sf review

hey folks,

here's the review of amy's sf show that dee mentioned - online
at http://www.gogirlsmusic.com/features/ray0501.htm...

may 2001
amy ray "live" in san francisco
april 27, 2001 - slim's - san francisco
punk and independent spirit lives in amy ray and
the butchies
review and photos by sandra t. molina

for those convinced that the spirit of rock 'n' roll, specifically
the punk movement, is in cardiac arrest since the recent death of
punk rock icon joey ramone and the ever increasing number of
cola-hawking pop kids, friday night alleviated that worry.

taking the stage in the first of a two-night sold out gig at slim's
in san francisco, amy ray and the butchies showed that the
rebellious, independent and in-your-face fun spirit of rock is
alive and pulsing through their veins. in fact, after a pleasant
opening set of original material by sarah dougher and a fun romping
set by the butchies, ray, a member of the indigo girls, did
something out of the realm of an act signed to a major label - she
helped set up her own equipment.

this do-it-for-love-of-music attitude is in keeping with the whole
idea behind releasing ray's first solo effort "stag" on her
independent label daemon records and taking it to the masses in a
month-long tour, which closed out this past weekend.

coming out on stage alone, ray picked up her mandolin and tore into
"johnny rottentail," a song about a social outcast. with a quiet
fervor, she strummed and sang as if she was in a trance, with eyes
closed and moving rhythmically to her own playing.

ray, known as the "intense" indigo girl, knows only to play at
full-throttle. she set the tone for the evening by giving an
emotionally riveting performance of that first song, and an
appreciative audience showed it was eager to join ray every step of
the way through the magic of her music. the mood intensified when
the butchies joined her on stage as the band that fueled her raw
musical style.

ray showed her sense of community and musical camaraderie by
bringing on dougher for a few songs playing fantastic keyboard.

the crowd reacted wildly to the song "lucystoner." this song,
which is about good ol' boy networking in all aspects of the music
industry brought the crowd verbally into the picture as it joined
in singing the chorus - "janny wenner, janny wenner rolling
stone's most fearless leader gave the boys what they deserve, but
with the girls he lost his nerve."

ray was thoroughly enjoying the sing-along, especially the lyrics
"lucystoners don't need boners."

after the song, there was a shout from the audience inquiring
about any response from rolling stone editor jann wenner regarding
the lyrics. she smiled and said that the magazine had a writer
review "stag" before knowing the lyrical content and its reference
to wenner.

"they pulled the fuckin' review," ray said with a little laugh and
a "can you believe it?" tone in her voice.

but ever the realist, she said wenner should get over the sour
grapes and that she doesn't care about being in rolling stone, to
which the crowd resoundingly concurred.

these first two songs showed that ray is definitely feeling very
comfortable in her own skin and while doing an excellent rock star
turn, she is still an expressive artist mixed with southern charm.

ray's easy banter with the audience showed her growth as a stage
presence, while her lead guitar work and the strong musicianship
of the butchies showed a band that rocked!

slower songs like "laramie" and "lazy boy" highlighted the
intricacy of her guitar work and the soulfulness and melodic
beauty of her lyrics.  "lazy boy" also showed ray's quirky sense
of humor and the humility with which she sees herself and life.

she told the story of how the song is about her grandmother's
death while sitting in a lazy boy chair and the response of each
of her family to the fate of the chair. she and her sisters
eventually threw it out.

during the song the audience was very quiet, listening intently.
"thanks so well for listening, i appreciate it," she said shyly.
"it's so cool" she added with a shrug and a look on her face that
showed her appreciation and happiness.

other highlights included the rockers "hey castrator," "late
bloom," mountains of glory" and the phil spector wall of sound
influenced "black heart today" and a stripped down version of
"measure of me."

during the encore, ray and the butchies did an all-out rockin'
cover of tom petty's "refugee," which left the crowd literally
wanting more.

ray returned to the stage sheepishly admitting that they didn't
know any more songs, but did persuade the butchies to come out
and play a butchie original, which she joined in singing.

after promising to know more songs next time, ray told the crowd
"goodnight y'all. rock on!"

here's to hoping there is a next time and with her help, everyone
