this is the setlist as they had it written on their official set lists at
the denver botanic gardens.  the did play more songs than this, but i
wasn't keeping track:

least complicated
three hits
wood song
devotion
get out the map
starkville
power of two
"amy ray solo" (i think she played chiapas bound right here).
same as it (or maybe it says "same as 1+")
gone again
"emily solo" (pretty sure this was philosophy of loss).
shame on you
cold beer & remote
yield
closer to fine
kid fears
she's saving me
"?"
galileo

at the lodo music fest, amy did johnny rotten.  they also did go and lucy
stoners and chickenman.  sorry, i'm not too good at keeping track.  :)

ok, i'm getting kinda worried here. i have this one 12th row center
ticket for the san diego show on 7/30. no one anywhere (ig bbs, here,
craigslist) seems to have any interest in buying it at all. i paid
$46.25 but honestly, at this point, i just want to see someone use it.

so... would any kind soul be willing to try and sell it for me at the
show? i would send you the ticket and then if you sold it, you could
forward back some of the $$$?

please?

it's a great seat, and i don't want to waste it!!!!

thanks in advance -
amy

yes, there sure is!  if you can't get ahold of a copy, go to curve's
web site for a snipet of the article and pics.  my favorite part is
melissa's comment, "at times, i'd look up and see her rocking out,
and i'd be like, 'holy shit, amy ray is jamming in my basement'"
gotta like that!

i don't know if this has been posted yet.  it's from the rocky mountain
news.  reprinted without permission.

mood indigo

it's togetherness for 'girls' as lodo fest headliner

by mark brown, news popular music critic

chill out, people. the indigo girls aren't going anywhere. they're
headlining the at&t lodo music festival on saturday night (and a
sold-out botanic gardens show tonight). they've got a new album that
they're ready to record.

and emily saliers says the other things going on in their lives don't
mean that she and amy ray aren't going to continue to work together.

they know why you're confused; the recent retrospective, the
remastering of their back catalog, the dvd and side solo projects
left fans worried that the duo was breaking up.

"people are a little bit afraid of change, generally speaking. we've
worked together for 20 years, and we're still going strong," saliers
says. "the thought never crossed our mind that this meant the end of
us. the more the individual does to strengthen herself, the better it
is for the whole."

besides, she says, "i prefer playing with amy much more than being
solo. i can't write the music she does. i really enjoy adding to her
songs and the unbridled passion that comes out in her work. i'm a
little more cerebral, so i enjoy the dichotomy. it's like having two
musical lives."

and the two are thrilled to be kicking off yet another tour here in
denver, a city that has helped put them on the musical map.

the connection with colorado has always been strong. live tracks from
red rocks have appeared on the album 1200 curfews. kbco was one of
the first big supporters of the indigo girls, and more importantly,
continues to play their new music after other stations fell away. and
their dvd released last year, live at the fillmore, was filmed at the
fillmore auditorium in denver, not the one in san francisco. it's the
first commercial release to come out of that venue.

"there's no doubt that denver has been one of our strongest bases of
support in the country," saliers says. "getting radio support
(elsewhere) is very difficult. a lot of women are being squished out
of playlists. we have many fond memories of nights at red rocks and
just good associations with the area. it's a joy to play here."

which is why they chose the fillmore to make the dvd in late '99.

"it's great," saliers says of the fillmore. "it's like a club but
it's not nasty, you know? clubs are great too; don't get me wrong.
but you have that intense energy that people get when they stand.
it's a beautiful place."

the gigs today and at the lodo festival on saturday will see ray and
saliers without a band, just with two acoustic guitars. expect hits,
expect album cuts, expect new, unreleased songs, and expect the usual
cover songs. in the past they've tackled everything from elton john's
mona lisas and mad hatters to neil young's down by the river.

the next record will be much the same as the show; the girls have
decided to make a more acoustic, folk-based album after several discs
of harder-edged rock. they plan to go straight into the studio off of
this tour.

"it's a contradiction because (touring) tires your voice, but seasons
it," saliers says. "we're going to be playing new songs this tour, so
we'll work those in. you just feel like it's not such a shock when you
get in and start recording, especially when you've been playing the
songs. it's just going to be more like a live, stripped-down feel to
it."

they decided it was time for such an album after going through their
back catalog, helping epic records re-release it in upgraded sound.

"we had mixed feelings about that," saliers says of the remastered
catalog. "the record company really wanted to do it. and there is
some marketing involved. it's a chance to reintroduce our work for the
public. you can't lay dormant for your whole career. you've got to do
things to keep in people's memories. we like to be sure we're keeping
it out there."

and while marketing is fine, saliers says, they also have strict rules
about what they won't do.

"we have a staunch philosophy to not do commercials," she says. "we've
turned down a lot of money. it (seeing other artists do commercials)
just makes me sick. it ruins it forever for me to hear an artist whose
work i admire selling soda or whatever."

while the girls have never played lodo before, they thrive on the
communal vibes that festivals have. saliers is still part owner of the
watershed, a restaurant in her hometown of decatur, ga.

"i love good food, good wine. i love a mom-and-pop, community-based
restaurant," she says. "it's just been very gratifying creating
something like that. i walk in there and people are eating and having
a good time and relaxing. i enjoy that. it's a wonderful way to bring
people together."
