[sherlyn's note: this is an excerpt of a message which was

well, sorry this is a few days late but i had a busy weekend.  anyway,
before reading what others wrote about the show i thought i'd give my own
review.

first of all this was in a new venue for ig, the state theater.   it was a
beautiful place, though slightly smaller then where they normally play.  the
place was sold out, as usual.  i only noticed three action tables and none
of them seemed to be ones that amy & emily were actually supporting.  i
think they just set up because the theater was somehow connected to a mall
or something.  it was a little strange.  anyway...
lisa loeb opened the show.  she was really great!  i have never been a huge
fan of hers so i only knew the "popular" songs that have gotten radio play.
let me tell you, you should buy one of her cd's.  she was really
entertaining.  the whole crowd was paying close attention to her.  that is
rare for an opener.  even the songs that i didn't know i still really
enjoyed.  she was an excellent choice i thought.
then amy & emily came on.  amy was wearing her bondage pants and her black
tank top.  emily was wearing a t-shirt that said "don't ruin this with
words" and a funky blue-jean type shirt over the top of that.  i think she
was wearing blue jeans, but i'm not positive about that.  i was 7 rows back
so i didn't get to see the shoes on either of them.  oh yeah, amy had her
hair in the little braids.  i don't think she is very comfortable with it
that way though because she kept playing with it and moving them from front
to back, then back to front.  it was a little distracting honestly.  emily
had a fan blowing on her the whole night.  i don't blame her, it was hot in
there!
i don't have a set list because security guards there were real a**holes and
wouldn't let anyone up to the stage.  but here is a rough idea of what they
played
bitterroot
ozziline
you've got to show
shame on you - i always love that song live!
power of two
become you
get out the map
faye tucker - another excellent live song
watershed - this was the first time in all my ig concerts that i have heard
watershed live.  for me it was wonderful
moment of forgiveness
closer to fine - always a crowd favorite
yield
collecting you
laramie - most people in the crowd didn't know this one.  i would say 2/3 of
the crowd sat down for the first time during this song.
least complicated - another highlight!  my sister was hoping they would play
this one.
chickenman - an amazing guitar solo from emily here.  though i found it a
little odd almost to not have bitterroot played in the middle.  i guess it's
just a change that i will have to get used to.
virginia woolf
starkville - this is the first time that the whole crowd actually sat down.
galileo

encore
she's saving me
go

for me i thought the best part was amy's unbelievable energy and non-stop
smiling.  emily, on the other hand, seemed really off.  she hardly smiled at
all and at times her voice sounded almost strained.  i think that she might
have been feeling a bit under the weather.  she still had 4 amazing guitar
solos that left everyone screaming!  even when she doesn't feel good the
woman still is unbelievable with a guitar.  i am hoping that it was just
that she was under the weather.  because i have never seen her that, what
would you say, dull in a concert before.  she basically just stood there.
short of saying "thanks ya'll" every once in a while she was very out of it.
anyway enough about that.

there were moments in the show when the harmony simply blew me away!  the
set list was quite long, i think they played for 2 hours.  it was fun.  not
the best ig show i have ever seen, but still better than most any other
artist i have ever seen.  i think amy was working overtime to make up for
emily.  she was crazy!  she told a cute little story about riding her bike
through our park system during the day.  other than that there wasn't really
a lot of talking that went on.

[...]

happy monday everyone.
