indigo girls

the wolf trap stage was a metaphor-free zone during monday's indigo girls
show.

unlike ani difranco, who last week brought a similar crowd -- overwhelmingly
young, left-of-center and female -- to the vienna venue, the indigo girls
aren't afraid of melody, or of comprehensible lyrics. the girls' 1992 hit
"galileo," for example, is indeed about galileo, and they dub the old guy the "king of
insight."

on record, such plain speaking sometimes comes off as sophomoric, and can
inspire giggling from anybody not on the folk duo's bandwagon. but live, emily
saliers, 40, and amy ray, 39, exuded an utter lack of pretense -- saliers never
went long without telling the fans, "thanks, y'all!" -- which explained the
accessible songwriting and made rooting for the georgia-based pair easy, even
for an outsider.

everybody danced during "closer to fine," the duo's first single for epic
records, released in 1989, and "hammer and a nail." the crowd swayed during their
many anthems for the young and hopelessly romantic, including "power of two"
and "kid fears."

the girls, who appeared sans band, aren't touring behind any new product, but
announced that they'd just finished recording an as-yet-untitled cd that
should hit the bins early next year. the faithful listened respectfully while ray
introduced some of the new material, including a song about the imperfect
world, titled "perfect world," and an unnamed number that had an opening couplet
any country crooner would be proud of: "i heard that you were drunk and mean /
down at the dairy queen."

the fans nodded along while the girls delivered the white-guilt trips "become
you" and "shame on you," and rocked out during saliers's guitar work on
"chicken man." and the crowd sang every word of "galileo," even "king of insight,"
with nary a giggle.

subject: [ig-news] baltimore

[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo girls
mailing list at netspace.org.]

since i havent seen a review up of this one either - i will try to give my
rundown - but usually reviews aint my thang...so bear with me here....

the girls seemed in really good spirits again - at first it seemed like it
was going to be a "closed eyes" amy night - but then she got into it, and we
even got to see some away from the mic dancing with the guitar (old school amy
dancing - reminiscent of the closer to fine video)

they were great agian - although i enjoyed the setlist from wolftap more - it
seemed like every time they finally got everyone out of their seats and
dancing, they would follow with a slow song..... but the crowd was very respectful
again - very quiet during the new stuff, very loud in their applause and
appreciation.

lots of onstage banter - emily commented on how great baltimore is - she went
to lunch at the hidden bean etc.  later on some girls from the side balcony
yelled "40 watt club" and emily responded saying, "that's in athens - are ya'll
from georgia"
the crowd starts cheering and then emily asks, "are those the cheap seats up
there - with the side view?"
then amy said something like, "oh no - dont look from up there, i hate my
profile"
then a fan yells, "well we love your profile"
amy started to blush and said, "you all sound like my dad..."

another time - someone yelled for "back together again" - to which emily
responded - "oh god - thats an old one - i wrote that song like twenty years ago"
- - and then something about how its sort of bad...and then amy chimed in, "how
bout that - a prodigy by age twenty - i knew when i saw her on the playground
that she had to be a prodigy"

what else what else.....i was writing a setlist down, but i lost my pen when
i got my camera taken away by the security guard (got it back at the end
though - and a few nice pictures, but not many - i am going to try ot post those
later)

what i can remember from the setlist (in no particular order):

let it be me
power of 2
become you
collecting you
let me go easy
fill it up again
dairy queen
perfect world
she's saving me
yield
shame on you
ozilline
get out the map
closer to fine
land of canaan
prince of darkness
romeo and juliet

encore:
watershed (during which amy forgot some of her words in the first verse, but
it didnt matter, the crowd was singing along so loud she got right back - this
also evoked a big smile from her)
galileo

i think there might have been one or two more new songs in there........but i
am not sure. afterwards they came out and signed autographs and chatted for a
while - someone asked emily somethign about being vegetarian - to which she
replied, "i am not a vegetarian, never have been...but i could tell you a lot
about some of the issues for vegetarians...but no, i am not one." - for some
reason i thought when they were featured a long time ago on vh1's naked cafe, i
could have sworn she talked about being vegetarian, but i guess it was amy.
so for any of ya'll wondering....now ya know.

ok... i think that is it..... sad...now its back to work as usual....
peace
sasha

although the antichic site is much, much nicer than mine, i've uploaded
several songs from the danbury, ct into a yahoo briefcase for download.  i
booted the show, so these mp3s were created directly from the source.
