subject: [ig-news] emily in us news

so i'm reading through this week's u.s. news, which is a double issue on
music, and in the article on protest singers from the sixties (which is
chiefly about joan baez), i run across the following (p. 63):

"'she's [baez] inspiring because she's always stood for more than just the
songs she was singing,' says emily saliers of the politically active duo
the indigo girls."

nice to see some people treat our girls as among the quotable, go-to
experts on meaningful music! wish more people paid them that kind of
respect.

hey listees

i have two tickets for the mpls. show on july 5th. i found better seats, so i am just trying to
recoup my cost on these. they are in the second row of the balcony, center section. the state
theater is small, so i think the seats are pretty good. i am asking face value for them, which
is $37.00 each. that excludes ticketbastard charges. if you are interested, send an email to me
at elfowl@usfamily.net. i have a paypal account, so payment should be fairly easy. if i don't
hear from anyone by tomorrow morning, july 3, i will have to put them up on ebay to see if i can
get my money out of them. i also posted this to the indigofans message board.

i appreciate the bandwidth!!

[sherlyn's note: this is an excerpt of a message which was
originally sent to the indigo girls mailing list at
netspace.org.]

so, i shook amy's hand, watched emily hanging out with sully, told blair he
was good and got my foot stepped on by connie from mrs fun.
i was backstage at the harley davidson stage at summerfest.
it was interesting and kind of cool to be that close to all the action, but i
really like being in the audience, waiting 6 hours, etc better. i never
thought i'd say that, but i kept feelign like i had to kind of apologize for
the privledge of being backstage and be like, "i paid my dues, i always wait
in line, i'm not some snob who doesn't even like the band and just has
connections, i promise." but enough about my weirdness.
my dad works knows the guy who was running the stage, that's how i ended up
backstage.
[...]
i stood behind the sound board to watch. it was hotter than hell back there
and on the stage, i'm sure.
amy wore braids (i have to disagree w/ everyone who loves them, i'm not too
partial to them) and a baseball style t shirt with some sort of pointalism
looking face on it. she had light colored jeans and black boots. emily wore
dark jeans maybe and a peachish shirt.
the setlist was very emily oriented which is not really my thing, but they
did play laramie and go and a bunch of amy cuts from the new album.

hey kind friends,
[...]
a friend turned me onto ig in 1989. [...] since 1995 when we moved here, i've been able to see them almost every time they've been in chicago and the times they've been at mwmf. a couple of good hoosier friends took me to indy to see them last friday. i can only echo what everyone else who was there has said: it was the best show i've ever seen them do. the energy was unbelievable. some other highlights not previously mentioned: i think it was before 'midnight train to georgia' that blair (it is blair, right' or is it brady') started drumming like a madman and amy stopped and said something about the amount of ribs he had consumed that day and how he had been in rib heaven. he was super energized, that's for sure! she also said that while blair (or brady) was consuming the ribs (and watching a movie on his computer!), emily, carol and clare were working the ny times crossword while she, amy, was eating a lot.
after the show, my friends and i made the mistake of going to the car to get a camera to take a picture of the great marquee that had 'indigo girls' in big letters on it and we missed amy coming out and signing. but we were there for emily. she signed my coaster and i asked her if they ever play 'everything in its own time.' she said sometimes. so i asked her if they could play it in chicago on the 4th and she said that they wouldn't since it's an outdoor show and the song needs a little more intimate setting (d'uh, michele!') she said that it's a song they should re-learn, though.
[...]
baci e abbracci,
michele

subject: [ig-news] milwaukee journal sentinel article

hey folks,

here's the milwaukee summerfest article that was
mentioned earlier... you can read it online at
http://www.jsonline.com/onwisconsin/music/jul02/56143.asp.

indigo girls' musical duality connects with fans
indigo girls
last updated: july 2, 2002
sometimes musicians are more than just the sum of their songs.

the indigo girls would be an example. certainly the indigos connect with
their audience musically, but there's quite a bit more to it than that. it
was readily evident monday night at the harley-davidson roadhouse as it is
at all of their concerts.

amy ray and emily saliers have a fervent following while other acts for
the '80s folk boom have fallen back to coffeehouse status.

they have never had anything close to mainstream radio acceptance, but
when they launch into one of their old favorites like "get out the map" or
"shame on you," you get an instant sing-along. there's also an interesting
musical duality. saliers is more folk and country. she played the banjo on
several songs monday and her new song "collecting you" is a tender country
love tune.

amy is more rock 'n' roll, more plugged-in, more punk. "shame on you" with
its la-la-la-la chorus is close summer cousin to van morrison's
"brown-eyed girl." the indigos may be a little humor deficient, but they
do have a knack for rocking and preaching at the same time.
