great show from the girls last night- high energy, great setlist, soaring
harmonies, you know- your typical ig concert.  :-)

compared to the comments about the audiences at other shows, this group was
fantastic.  first of all, we got there at 5:30, and there were eight people
in line in front of us.  that's right.  eight.  not 50, not 20.  eight.
fabulous.  we were right in the front row.

a lot of us knew the new songs and sang along with them where appropriate.
the crowd talked through the actual playing of the album over the pa, but i
didn't expect people to just sit and listen.  i thought it was fine to be
talking through it.  the important part was when the girls were playing the
new songs live- and the crowd was respectful and appreciative of the new
ones.  everybody shouted out random requests all night, which made the
girls laugh.  the only inappropriate one happened when emily started the
opening to "she's saving me" and some girl yelled out "power of twoooo!!"
the best part was that everybody in the first few rows went "shhhhhhhhh!"
which gave emily a laugh.  you can't really blame the girl- she probably
had no idea what emily was about to sing and what it means to her to sing
it- but it wound up being okay.

the girls were in good spirits.  here's the set, hopefully complete but
definitely a bit out of order:

gone again

amy was smiling up a storm on this one.  emily looked like she was spacing
out.  i've noticed that amy keeps her eyes open a lot more these days while
she's playing.  she has really come into her own- i think stag was a very
good thing for her.

least complicated

sounded great to me.  amy remarked afterwards that she spaced out for a bit
and forgot the chords, and apologized to emily.  cute.  :-)

deconstruction

fantastic.  emily's voice literally soared through the crowd on those high
notes.

virginia woolf

oh wow.  that's all i can say.  oh, and that right before "the hatches were
battened," amy gave emily a goofy look, as if to ask "are you gonna sing
this correctly tonight?"  the few of us that knew why she was giving emily
that look applauded her when she sang it correctly.  :-)

become you

amy nailed the harmonica part.  nailed it.  great song live.

yield

the most rockin' song on become you and definitely a great live one.  amy
broke a string (surprised?).  sulli had an extra ready for her but had run
to the side right when the string broke, so she wasn't there to hand it to
her.  they wound up starting over.

shame on you

lots of singing, especially on the chance for us to scream the word "fuck."

closer to fine

starkville

absolutely kicked ass but amy was unhappy with it afterwards.  i think she
tried to explain why she was unhappy afterwards but stopped herself from
getting into it.

galileo

our deliverance

nice to see amy playing the lead line on this one, i think she was on
bouzouki (who made this instrument and why couldn't they give it an easy
spelling?).  amy mentioned she was happy that as new yorkers we applauded
for "lay down your weapons..."

chickenbitterrootman (that's my new title for it)

blistering solos by emily as usual.  amy had us sing the entire first verse
and made very cute faces throughout, including lowering her face as if to
imitate us struggling to hit the low notes.  :-)

before this one, they had a little meeting about what to play next.  it was
so cute.  amy held her guitar up to the audience and talked behind it so we
couldn't see what she was takling about.  finally they were about to play a
different song, "requested by emily," said amy, "an old one," but quickly
changed their mind and played chickenbitterrootman.  anybody know what song
they were going to play?

kid fears

good singalong from the audience as usual.  :-)

she's saving me

see above notes about the beginning.  a beautiful rendition.

moment of forgiveness

emily on gibson electric, the only electric of the night.

and that was the show.  a great night.  i caught a pick, missed a setlist.
sulli is definitely the hero of the show, in my opinion.  that girl works
so hard.  i got to speak with her before the show and i asked her if she
had picked the setlist for the show.  she said she hadn't, but she
mentioned the show a week or so ago where she had, and said the girls
worked her twice as hard that night. :-)

[...]

a fun night!  emily mentioned that they'll be back this summer, maybe at
the beacon.

[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo

hi all,
since i haven't seen it posted yet, amy and emily made
a surprise visit to wfuv (a great nyc community radio
station) yesterday afternoon. spoke for 20 minutes or
so and played mof, ygts and maybe one other (can't
remember). anyway, the host asked about last year's
ballet project. they said there had been some talk
about taking the performance on the road, and that
they'll be doing it again in atlanta next february.

yay!
stephen
