girls night out
by derek tse
toronto sun

indigo girls
molson amphitheatre, toronto
sunday, june 9, 2002
- -------------------------------------------------------------

toronto -- toronto saw something of a mini-lilith fair revival last
night at the molson amphitheatre.

three female-driven acts -- up-and-coming singer-songwriter sarah
slean, veteran alt-rockers k's choice and folksters indigo girls, who
headlined the show -- took the stage and performed in front of about
3,500 people.

what a difference a couple of days can make -- the estrogen fest came
just after a testosterone-charged session from bad boys green day and
blink-182, who played the amphitheatre last friday. instead of those
pop-punkers' incessant foul language, sexual innuendo and
juvenility, the mostly female audience at last night's show were
treated to girl-friendly music and constant politeness, with each act
issuing polite "thank yous" after each song was greeted with
applause.

slean opened the proceedings with a quick performance that finished
stronger than it began. the pretty pickering native seemed a little
nervous at first, but after the first few songs, launched into her
set with gusto, using her sweet, girlish voice to good effect.

then belgium's k's choice came on for an excellent -- but
all-too-brief -- performance. led by the distinctive, raspy vocals of
frontwoman sarah bettens, the band played several songs off of their
new album, almost happy, including standouts like my head, busy, the
title track and another year, during which the indigo girls helped
out on vocals. but the band saved their best for last, with a
bravura performance of their signature '90s hit, not an addict.

when the indigo girls -- the guitar-playing duo of amy ray and emily
saliers -- finally took the stage proper, the small but enthusiastic
crowd roared in anticipation. and they didn't disappoint: their
contrasting styles -- ray has the deeper voice and tends to rock out
more, while the folk-leaning saliers has the prettier voice -- meshed
perfectly as they performed a mix of old favourites and songs from
their latest album, become you.

standouts included the ominous-sounding starkville, the rootsy get
out the map, the twangy yield, the power folk of faye tucker and the
uptempo shame on you and become you. but some of the loudest ovations
went to the rocking chicken man and closer to fine, during which
bettens returned the favour and joined ray and saliers on vocals.

all in all, this girls night out was a blast -- although you couldn't
help but think it may have been even better had the venue been more
intimate.
