as a part of their 25 year birthday celebration, kbco is playing a bunch of
gems from the vault.  on sunday, 1/20, at 7pm mountain time, they will be
broadcasting the girls '89 red rocks set (when they opened for 10k
maniacs).  i think you can pick it up online at www.kbcoradio.com.  enjoy!

just wanted to let everyone know that although slim's online tickets are
not available until 10am on sunday, it is possible to buy tickets for the

go to slim's page, go to their calender for febuary, and click for more
info.  under tickets, slim's online will appear...click on virtuous instead
and go from there.  snatch 'em up!!

<<does anybody know any specifics for the ig show at drew university in
madison, nj on feb 28?...>>

acording to indigogirls.com it's a 'students only' show. whether that means
non-studends can weadle their way in somehow is another thing entirely...

subject: [ig-news] rolling stone article

hey folks,

here's the rolling stone article that jason mentioned.  if you
want to read it online, it's at
http://www.rollingstone.com/news/newsarticle.asp?nid=15247.

indigo girls get back to basics

ray and saliers true to acoustic roots on "become you"

when indigo girls amy ray and emily saliers sat down to discuss
writing their new record, become you, they agreed that it was
time to stash the distortion pedals and snare drums from their
last lp -- 1999's come on social -- in favor of some rootsier
fare. "before we started the record, the main issue i had was i
wanted to get back to basics and make an acoustic record," ray
says. "i wasn't even thinking about drums. i was thinking,
'let's make arrangements that work with a lot of guitar
interplay and vocal interplay that really work in an acoustic
way.'"

slated for release on march 12th, become you features songs
like "yield" and "nuevas senoritas" that ray stockpiled over
the years in anticipation of another acoustic indigo girls
album, and newer tunes, like the shuffling "starkville." the
album also features a variety of styles, from the soul-flavored
"moment of forgiveness," to the bluesy bent of "bitter root."

"'moment of forgiveness' is this weird song that came out of
nowhere for me four years ago in the dressing room of some
place we were playing, and i never really knew quite how to
treat it," ray says. "the keyboard player in our band, carol
isaacs, came up with that riff at the beginning, and sort of
set the tone for the whole thing."

after more than fifteen years in the indigo girls, ray says that
the time she spent making and touring behind her solo record
helped to keep things interesting.

"i definitely needed to break off and do something that was very
autonomous, just to help myself get away and have this other space
i could go," she says. "it's a different kind of validation. with
my own thing i toured alone and i had to do everything by myself.
it was all about the music and much more self-motivated. i think
that helped me because then i can go back to indigo girls and
feel fresh about that and remember what's important."

ray and saliers typically write songs independently, but this time,
while recording at tree sound studios in norcross, georgia, they
broke the mold.

"we kind of traded off instruments on this record," ray says. "i
would be in the middle of a lead on mandolin and i'd be like, 'i
can't figure out where to go from here,' and she'd just take it
from me and play the rest of it. we've never done that before."

the indigo girls have lined up a string of club dates in advance
of become you. the are as follows:

2/11: boulder, co, fox theatre
2/13: seattle, crocodile
2/14: portland, or, aladdin
2/15: san francisco, slim's
2/18: los angeles, the knitting factory
2/21: austin, tx, mercury
2/22: dallas, sons of hermann hall
2/24: nashville, 3rd & lindsley
2/25: atlanta, tba
2/26: new york city, bowery ballroom
2/27: philadelphia, theater of living arts
2/28: madison, nj, drew university
3/1: boston, paradise
3/3: buffalo, ny, university of bufflao
3/4: ottawa, ont, tba
3/5: toronto, ont, lee's palace
