okay guys, it looks like this list has become a copy of the news only ig
list.....so let's try to
think of something to talk about....

here's a two part question just to start things rolling: of all the ig
shows you've attended can you name the absolute best one? if so......
what made it so special?

mine was this year's hte show in northfield, i loved (as always) the
speeches from the girls (winona was good too, but being i'm from
minnesota i get to hear her a lot.)
and i loved the spirit of the croud......we were all so high on music
that when we lost
our sound we all serenated the girls with gotm......and everyone
especially amy  and
emily just laughed and laughed.

"we're out of power!!!"  emily laughed....i just love her smile! it
makes her seem like a real sweetie onstage.

okay i've told mine.....let's hear some more now.


peace
barb

it's hard to pick, so i'll go with when i first saw them at lilith fair. i
know, where have i been? ;)
it was pouring rain, last lilith fair ever planned, and it was still fun.
the little schedule card had ig 3rd i think. the dixie chicks were second.
so some folks were setting up onstage and i was squinting at them. huh, only
two dixie chicks? huh? i squinted some more and shrugged. i was way back in
the stands so i couldn't see the stage very well. good excuse hey?
finally the blonde one started talking "hi we're the indigo girls and we're
from atlanta." whuh?! yay! i'm not sure why they switched order, but my
cynical side assumes it's because there was a big separate promotion for
country music fans to go see the dixie chicks and "save the best for last"
kinda thing. yeaaaahh... ok. the chicks were actually fun though, so it was
ok. the girls were better!!!!!
most of their set is a big happy blur, but i do remember closer to fine. a
few thousand people singing along is pretty cool :)

let's see..

>>of all the ig shows you've attended can you name the absolute best one? if
so...... what made it so special?<<

ooohh... so many to choose from - and good for different reasons...

there's the "first date with my bride" show.
the "on our honeymoon" show.
then there's the "first show of the so tour with a four-piece band and they
only played to 300-or-so people" show.
and finally the "i played onstage with the indigo girls" show.

i'd like to think that the best show is yet to come. i'd like to think that,
but i really can't...
