if you have tivo and music choice (i don't think you have to have directv
as i do), you should be able to find the hour-long interview by searching
for keyword "indigo girls".  i just have my tivo set up to auto-record
anything matching keyword "indigo girls," to make sure i don't miss any
appearances.

according to my listings, the next scheduled airing on directv is at
midnight, 2/21, on shwcse1 (channel 802).

(fyi, my search also turned up the vh-1 "before they were rock stars" with
ig, which airs at 6:30 on 2/21.

just a quick note about the show last night... the girls seemed in very
good moods, lots of smiling and laughing :) amy looked gorgeous :) the
sound in there was amazing too - you could hear all the words perfectly.
everyone was pretty noisy during the cd portion but i still enjoyed
listening to the new songs. one funny part - amy said the place was so
intimate she felt like they should take some questions and asked if anyone
had any questions. a girl close to the front said "i have one - can you
sign my coaster??" (lots of ig coasters floating around) so amy said "no no
we can't do that" and the girl made an "awww" sound so amy said "ok" and
went up to the girl and signed her coaster and then brought it over to
emily and had emily sign too. then amy pulled out a polaroid camera and had
the girl come up on stage and take a pic of a&e together. :)  later amy
told a story about having the stomach flu recently and she went in to the
emergency room at the rural hospital near her house and they misdiagnosed
her and did all these tests on her. finally they gave her some drugs -
"they're even too strong for me" and said the pill was a mixture of
(something) and demerol. emily said "what are they called?"  amy: "whammy"
amy said she was driving home - "i wasn't driving, my girlfriend was
driving" and she kept having hallucinations of deer in the road. it was
pretty funny :)

anyway, fairly well-behaved crowd. the first couple songs were a bit rowdy
but everyone calmed down after that. there was actually quiet enough to
hear the last guitar parts of some of the songs :) also a celebrity
sighting - sara gilbert was there. the setlist from what i can remember was
something like this:
gone again (amy broke a string right off the bat and had to switch
mandolins during the song)
closer to fine
become you
deconstruction
shame on you
get out the map
kid fears
she's saving me
yield
power of two
galileo
encore (sort of... they stayed out and clapped and then said, ok we'll do
two more songs :)
moment of forgiveness
our deliverance (which emily said was a song about peace and that when they
do those polls that say 88% of the country is happy with the way the
administration is handling things... well i'm in the other 12% y'all)

anyway, more to come later on the bootleg :)

subject: [ig-news] autographs/santa cruz

[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo
girls mailing list at netspace.org.]

after the santa cruz show, i got to talk to emily and she signed an
autograph for me.  it was the first time --since i first saw them at emory
a long time ago and had no idea that i was witnessing -- that i ever tried
to meet them. amy took a detour around the bus (though someone told us she
had signed a bunch of stuff earlier) and generally ignored us, but emily
was beautiful and sincere and gracious.  a woman asked her what was the
significance of the key she wore around her neck and emily said, "it's a
secret."  anyway, here's the setlist from santa cruz:

get out the map
three hits
collecting you
yield
mystery
faye tucker
least complicated
become you
hope alone (this song nearly made me cry)
gone again
philosophy of loss
johnny rottentale (with a cool intro i hadn't heard before - anyone know
what it was?*)
closer to fine
nuevas senoritas
shame on you
galileo
moment of forgiveness
our deliverance
chickenman/bitterroot (second encore)

the crowd was phenomenal, i must say. met some really nice people in the
line, and one guy even offered to give me a boot. it was the second best
show i've ever seen - after the greek theatre in berkeley,ca  1997.
michael franti (of spearhead) warmed up the crowd - with the most
spectacular example of human percussion i have ever witnessed...he also
told great stories about the artist exchange in havana and how emily taught
him his first chord - a g, which he says "is featured in almost everything
i play."

the intro to johnny rottentale went something like this: my dog he don't
bite/but he barks all night / my heart it don't break/but it sure does
ache....

oh yeah.  amy wore flannel.
