melissa etheridge has cancer, cancels tour


(http://ar.atwola.com/link/93179295/630232499/aollocal?target=_blank&border=0)
los angeles (oct. 8) - singer melissa etheridge has been  diagnosed with
breast cancer and has canceled upcoming tour dates to undergo  treatment, her
publicist said thursday.
etheridge, 43, will undergo surgery and a "speedy and  complete recovery" is
expected by her doctor, publicist marcel pariseau said in  a statement.
the cancer was detected early and etheridge has been  receiving treatment,
pariseau said.
"i am fortunate to be under a wonderful doctor's care and  thankful that this
was caught early," etheridge said in the statement. "i am  looking forward to
a quick and full recovery."
etheridge and actress tammy lynn michaels held a commitment  ceremony in
september 2003. the musician, who lives in los angeles, shares  custody of a
daughter and son with former partner julie cypher, who had the  children through
artificial insemination using a sperm donation from rocker  david crosby.
etheridge's latest album, "lucky," was released in  february. refunds for
tickets to her upcoming shows will be available where they  were bought; the
entertainer's web site says she had been scheduled to play 11  dates in seven
cities this month.

i heard this today on the morning news.  what a shame.  and i was wondering when she would tour again after this anyway--since she's going into the sit-com and silver screen business.  i was hoping to catch her on this tour.  i've never gotten the chance to see her live...but where i was going with this is...last year i never went and got my mammagram.  of course, this year, i heard about it from my doc at my annual check up.  she gave me the paperwork and it is still sitting around.  this has inspired me to get mine.  i'm calling for my appointment early next week.  i'll be praying for melissa and tammy.

       as part of its move into a new, larger studio, wxpn (88.5-fm) in
philadelphia asked its listeners to send in their top 10 songs of all time, for
compilation of listeners' top 885 songs of all time. for those who don't know,
this is a public radio station sanctioned by the university of pennsylvania.
they play quite an eclectic mix of music and have had ig on their syndicated
public radio show "world cafe." it's a great station, although i've been dismayed
with some of the playlist in recent months, more alt-rock, less
singer-songwriter, but perhaps the listeners' choices, decidedly unlike their recent
playlists, will be reflected in a return to what made wxpn so special!

it frightens me when i read of anyone recently diagnosed - my mom was
diagnosed with multiple myeloma (a cancer of the plasma in the bone marrow)
last november (the diagnosis came on my 30th birthday, which was bad enough
, but my extended family thought that my spouse was 'too stressful' to be
around my mother in  the hospital, and tryed to prevent me and him from
visiting.

when she finally caught wind of what her loving family was doing, well, she
actually invited jim to thanksgiving. and she apologized for my bonehead
extended family.

but anyway - cancer is not always the death sentence people used to
associate it as - i say that as i just got home from a consult with my
mom's treatment - she is thriving and looking good, and prepping for a very
aggressing therapy that may really help her out.

but everyone - get your mammograms - men - just because you dont like your
doctor doing that "there" - is no excuse for not getting tested for
prostate cancer - early detection is the key to survival.

thanks for the psa mike! i felt a small lump in my
right breast at the end of april and went in for a
mammogram which found a second one. i had a
lumpectomy, all my lymph nodes removed under my right
arm, am in the middle of chemo and will have radiation
after that. it's a big life style change for me and
events are now planned around when i'm not too tired
from chemo. however, it's a small price to pay,
considering the alternative.

i was lucky to feel the lump early, since i was
letting the yearly mammogram slide. now i'm a
mammogram nag. please ladies...go get tested. it's
worth having your boobs squished! and men, please
grin, bear it, go to your doctors and "assume the
position".

susan

also:

if you're 50 or over, please get either a flexible sigmoidoscopy or
colonscopy to screen for colon cancer.  that is a curable cancer, too, if
caught early.

luckily, colon cancer is slow growing, so you only need to do this test
every 5 or 10 years.

if you have a family history of colon cancer, your first endoscope should be
10 years before your relative was diagnosed.

important issues. what began as a basement band in high school has evolved into
one of this generation's most influential folk duos.

"we try to find the right balance in our music, our activism and our lives in
general," the 41-year-old singer/songwriter said in an interview from her
georgia home. "it's all about achieving the right mix."

the indigo girls' efforts to maintain balance are evident in many ways,
including the artwork on their latest cd, "all that we let in" on the epic
records label: a woman balancing with her arms extended as she walks across a
pipeline over a creek in a forest.

"that's the artist's interpretation of the balance between the environment and
our needs ... for water, fuel, energy," saliers said.

saliers' environmental concerns and her musical talents both blossomed at a
young age. her collaboration with ray has spanned more than two decades.

"we met in chorus in elementary school (in decatur, ga.) and we started a band
in high school, playing in our basement and at parties," saliers said. "before
you knew it, we had fake ids and we were playing out in bars."

their 1989 self-titled album went gold in six months and earned the indigo
girls a grammy for best contemporary folk recording. they've earned several
subsequent grammy nominations, played thousands of concerts around the world
and sold millions of records.

and all the while, they've served as tireless activists for countless causes.

in the past two months, the indigo girls have promoted voter registration in
the "swing states" of louisiana, tennessee and arkansas with ani difranco's
"vote dammit" tour and performed in salt lake city at the honor the earth
benefit.

"i admire ani difranco's politics and activism," saliers said. "it's very
inspiring to work with others who share similar goals."

saliers believes it's vital for artists to encourage fans to speak out about
important issues.

"i think it falls upon all of us to help spread the message and to do our
part."

<p>hey y'all!</p>
<p>just got back from the show.  amazing as always.  girlyman were really good, got the cd, beautiful harmony, lotsa fun live.  if anyone knows the paul simon song they opened with, please let me know.</p>
<p>fashion report:  both in blue jeans and black boots.  amy - red cowboy shirt from girlfriends photos.  emily - beige flannel w/wax bush t-shirt underneath.  both looked great and seemed in high spirits with lots of smiles.</p>
<p>setlist:</p>
<p>fill it up again<br>shame on you<br>let it be me<br>dairy queen<br>power of 2 (amy said she messed up a part of this song, forgot a chord or something, didn't notice)<br>heartache for everyone (before they started this one, someone yelled that the sound wasn't loud enough to which amy responded "that's a sound person request.  wait til after this song!"<br>hammer & a nail (before this one emily commented on the rally yesterday in atlanta and encourage us to vote since we have the same issue in ky)<br>yield<br>free in you <br>let me go easy (before this one amy said that she wrote this after spending time w/an activist friend who passed away.  they were hanging out in a bathroom and she was saying all this stuff and amy went home and wrote it all down and this song came from that)<br>closer to fine (w/girlyman)<br>become you<br>love's recovery (wonderful!!!)<br>gone again (this was a pleasant surprise, to me at least)<br>least complicated<br>rodeo (amy had to
start this one over when she got to the "i am just a rodeo calf" part saying she has all these pets in her mind and forgot the lyric.  also someone requested something else and she said oh i've already started this one.)<br>va woolf (after this song my friend john who came w/me - who has seen the girls six times before since nis era, all with a band and was excited that this was a duo show - said to me, "i thought this song would suffer w/o a band but no," to which i replied, "der!")<br>go (rocked!!!)<br>get out the map<br>encore:<br>ghost<br>land of canaan<br>galileo</p>
<p>excellent show.  a couple of setlist surprises.  i requested tether but to no avail.  amy stated that they hear our requests but barely know the songs they were prepared to play tonight.  the crowd was kind of a quiet, sit-down crowd, which made the show very cool on one hand because you could hear a pin drop during the quiet parts in po2, free in you, love's recovery, rodeo, va woolf, & ghost, but kinda lame on the other since people didn't dance a lot.  the people on the front row were all dancing tho, that was sweet!!!</p>
<p>summer, good to see you.  sorry we didn't get a chance to talk more but i did coerce a friend to come to lexington for malone in dec.  </p>
<p>cathy, nice to meet you.  pm me, we'll jam.</p>
<p>y'all have a great time at the upcoming shows and please keep us posted on the setlists.</p>

<p class=copycutline><br> </p></td></tr></tbody></table>if professional musicians dig a record store, you know it's got to be pretty damn cool. so count your blessings that louisville is home to ear x-tacy - one of amy ray's favorite places.
<p>one half of the acoustic folk duo the indigo girls, ray raves about the ear x-tacy staff and makes a point to stop by when she's in town.
<p>"after 20 years of touring, i know the record stores in different towns," ray said in a phone interview from her north georgia home. "i really like ear x-tacy."
<p>ray is also a fan of the group girlyman, which will open the tuesday night show at the kentucky center. "they do amazing three-part harmony and i think our audience will really love them."
<p>we asked ray some questions about her long musical partnership with emily saliers and their new album, "all that we let in," as well as some other random stuff.
<p><b>the indigo girls have been a duo longer than many marriages last. what's your secret?
<p></b>just giving each other space, and we really fend for each other. we realize what we have as a duo has this magical element that we don't take for granted. we have to be aware of our musical relationship...and we have a mutual respect. whenever we might let our ego get to us, we take a step back that it would be really bad for the music.
<p><b>it's election year, and the indigo girls are very politically conscious, even performing shows specifically to raise voter awareness. what can audiences expect from your louisville performance?
<p></b>we'll just play our songs. we'll probably tell people to vote a couple of times. we don't change our set list for political times. we'll do some old songs, new songs and brand, brand new songs that nobody has heard. sometimes we do requests. at this point, we hope just coming to the show will remind people of the quality of life you have if you have a say in your community.
<p>even if you lose, you feel better if you tried.
<p><b>you have a song on the new album called "dairy queen," which you say is the hangout in your northern georgia town. so what's your favorite dq treat?
<p></b>the peanut buster parfait. but that's rivaled by the snickers blizzard - i might be changing over. i try to limit myself because i can get carried away.
<p><b>you also call "dairy queen" a happy breakup song that makes you smile. how do dq's frosty treats help ease the stress of a breakup?</b>
<p>sugar is a great motivator. then you get tired after the sugar and you can sleep a little bit.
<p><b>which one of the indigo girls is "closer to fine" at this moment?</b>
<p>i don't know because i haven't seen emily in a week. but emily, probably. i'm probably a little wiggy. we trade off on the craziness. i don't know what her crazy state is right now.
<p><b>what super power would you like to have?</b>
<p>i really like spider-man these days. but i think i'd be invisible. it seems like a good power to have.
<p><b>what would you do with it?</b>
<p>go to a lot of right-wing political meetings and pick up the information without having to dialogue. i am kind of a hermit, so i would be fascinated by going to town and getting my stuff done. i would love to be invisible for animal watching, too.</p></div><br clear=all><hr> <a href="http://g.msn.com/8hmbenus/2737??ps=47575">don't just search. find. check out the new msn search!</a> </html>

hey all,

after a 133 day hospital stay, i.e. 4 and a half months, jodie moved to reh=
ab yesterday!  it really is just another hospital.  but, it's a 'step down'=
medical-care-wise and a step forward as far as getting better and coming h=
ome is concerned.  we expect her to be there for 1 to 2 weeks.  the goal is=
to be home by halloween!  we think we just might make it, too! :)  yesterd=
ay, jodie was in my car!!!  it's a world of difference from what we've been=
through these past months.  it was also her fourth time outside since goin=
g into the hospital.  her first trip outside, was just a few weeks ago, in =
fact.

jodie, eli, and myself really wished she could just come home.  in fact, he=
r physical therapist and wound care doctor agreed that she didn't need to g=
o to rehab.  also the pt made a point of noting in her paperwork that jodie=
didn't need to go to rehab.  but, as long as she's closer to being better =
and being home, i'll take it.  it certainly couldn't hurt.  jodie will not =
be returning to work until january, anyway.  so, she still has several week=
s to continue to recuperate and regain her strength.  just in the past week=
she has moved from needing a walker, to just using a cane.  it may seem od=
d that a 29 year old needs a cane, but that's just our reality.  soon, she =
won't again.

jodie was not very happy about being at rehab.  one she just wants to be ho=
me.  two, she's in a much older building, so instead of her surroundings lo=
oking like a four star hotel (mahogany wood trim, etc) she now seems like s=
he's staying in a run-down motel.  it's not that bad, but the difference is=
pretty significant.  the care and rehab are what's important to me, anyway=
.  hopefully, she will get over the sight of the place, warm up to the peop=
le (which i know she'll have no problem with), and be busy with rehab and k=
eep working hard to get home.

thank you to everyone for your continued emails, prayers, cards and support=
!  and, yes, kate, you win for card from the farthest location, hong kong! =
congrats!! :)  any other world travelers out there up for the challenge?  =
kate has set he bar pretty high. :)

jodie is now in downtown baltimore, right off of the harbor.  although, the=
view from her room is of a parking lot and building roof.  feel free to se=
nd her a card or visit her during this last step in her road to recovery an=
d returning home.  her new address is:

jodie virago
room 3621=20
university specialty hospital
601 s. charles street

review of the indigo girls' all that we let in
kris scott marti, october 13, 2004

the indigo girls' twelfth album came out in february of this year, smack dab in
the middle of the winter of love and all the rebel queer marriages in the
united states. this was an amazingly auspicious time for them to release this
album, but it didn't exactly fly off the shelves. all that we let in is a
somewhat uneven offering from our favorite folk duo, but it has a few gems in
it, including an attempt at an interesting new sound.

after briefly polling some of my friends who are indigo girls fans--these are
women who see every show date when the band is in town--the general consensus
was that they didn't care for this album, but they couldn't quite articulate
why beyond the common phrase "it doesn't sound like them."


that can be a problem when a band has been successful for fifteen years. trying
anything new or experimental can be risky, even if you have a loyal and
enthusiastic fan base like the indigo girls. some risks work, like u2 and
madonna's shifting sounds over the decades, but the indigo girls' new sound has
been less of a hit.

departing slightly from their more folksy roots, the girls open all that we let
in with the righteous boom of the hammond b-3 organ. then they experiment with
a ska beat before slipping back into their more familiar sound. there is no
clear hit like "closer to fine" or "romeo and juliet" on this album, but i
still liked "fill it up again" for it's deep resonating organ and cello, and
"dairy queen" for its juicy lyrics. this song is most reminiscent of their
earlier hits.

the second track, "heartache for everyone," has the accessible storytelling
songwriting that reminds me of my favorite indigo girls song, "hammer and a
nail." on top of these evocative lyrics, the girls try out a rollicking ska
beat. i really enjoyed this as a step away from the stereotypical strummed
guitar and drumming-circle-inspired rhythm that is usually incorporated into
indigo girls songs.

there are great new directions in the indigo girl sound, but the album doesn't
follow through on its promise. they marry new beats and instruments with their
already fantastic guitar work, lyrics and harmonizing, but they don't commit
to this new direction and switch back to their patented sound by the third
song. there is barely a chance to get excited about the band's fusion of new
styles with their strong folk lyricism and vocals.

even worse, they bring in dreary, dirge-like tunes right in the middle of the
album with the title song "all that we let in" and "tether." these are woeful,
activist-statement songs that easily become skippers, those oddballs on a cd
that you always fast forward through.

but before all you diehard indigo girls fans fall into despair, there are a
couple of good reasons to get this album. the artwork on the album is all done
by jaime hernandez of love & rockets comic book fame. jaime and his brother
gilbert create beautiful graphic novels that feature latinos and punk rockers
in various slice-of-life situations. two of their most famous characters are
hopi, a queer woman, and maggie the mechanic, her sometime girlfriend (maggie
is pictured on the cover). if you are a love & rockets fan, you will want to
add this album to your collection for the artwork alone.

but more importantly, all that we let in comes with a dvd of live performances
recorded at the bottom line in new york city last december. you can watch
versions of "dairy queen," "fill it up again," "come on home," and "perfect
world," as well as their well-loved "kid fears" and "galileo."

check out the indigo girls' tour dates at indigogirls.com or buy the album now

quick recap of tonight's show in lovely bloomington, indiana (not
bloomington, illinois which is apparently where their bus driver tried
to take them, oops! emily said they'd sent him off to take a nap.)

setlist (i'll note what was on the written setlist as well as variations):

fill it up again
perfect world
it's alright
yield
power of two
on setlist: jonas & ezekial; played (by request): thin line (!!)
woodsong (yeah!)
shame on you
deconstruction
heartache
get out the map
become you (originally had "amy solo" but this was scratched out)
something real
let me go easy
closer to fine (with girlyman -- this ruled)
on setlist: "amy solo"; played: dairy queen
let it be me
go

encore:
emily solo -- i don't know the name of this one; it was written by
someone else, she said it was one of her favorite songs, and it was
absolutely gorgeous; was anyone else there? if so, do you know what
this was? it was so gorgeous. this wasn't on the written setlist at
all, and it's nothing i've ever heard her do before.
on setlist: dairy queen; played: romeo & juliet (amy solo of course)
galileo

it was a really good show. girlyman was wonderful! go see them if you
possibly can, and buy their cd no matter what. i can't imagine an ig
fan who wouldn't like them. harmonies to die for, and they are all so
damn cute. www.girlyman.com -- go buy a cd. just do it.

i'd gotten to the theater, uh, rather insanely early (okay, 11:30 am
-- but i wasn't the first one there!) and so i was able to get a front
row seat, amy side. this was my first time being in the front row for
an ig show and to say i enjoyed it immensely would be the
understatement of the year. well, y'all know. :) (it was a general
admission show, that's why i got there so damn early.)

amy was very dancey tonight. her little feet were just going a mile a
minute. emily's voice was sounding even more extraordinary than usual.
i decided that, since i'd been in the front row and managed to snag a
pick and a setlist, i'd go all the way and be a big old dorky fangirl
and hang out by the bus afterwards. both of them spent some time
signing stuff and being generally gracious and happy and sweet. oh,
and someone asked emily why they never do "leaving" and she said they
do it sometimes and maybe they'd put it back in the setlist later on
this tour.

good show, good times.

peace,

a very happy anne in indiana

p.s. nigc -- rose polenzani has a new cd out, and it's really
wonderful. when you're done buying girlyman's cd, go to
www.rosepolenzani.com and treat yourself to a copy of "august." i'm
not kidding. do it. you won't regret it.

the book is not out yet.  i work in a bookstore (yes, a big evil
behemoth bookstore, but the earthy-crunchy one) and  believe me i'm
checking for updates every day.  but here's the thing:  some books
have specific laydown dates/street dates (like your stephen kings,
your nora roberts, even your ann coulters and so forth) but most books
just get there when they get there, giving or taking a few days, and a
whole lot of them originally slated for september actually ship in
october or whatever.  so it's not strictly true with a book that
doesn't have a laydown date (like this one by don & emily) that it's
"supposed to come out" on any given day.  more often than not, the
tentatively scheduled date is not when it actually arrives in
bookstores; it's either earlier or later. there's no concerted effort
nor hoopla about ensuring it's in stores on a certain day, as there
would be with harry potter or something.

i'm so excited to see that they played  "it's all right"  !!!   i'm
going through a phase with that song right now and really hope i get
to hear it when i see them in a couple weeks.

anyway.

> btw....what's www.afterellen.com (aside from the obvious)?


from the website:

who is sarah warn and what qualifies her to write about this stuff?
i have an undergraduate degree in women's studies from wellesley college and a
master's in theological studies from harvard university--which means i know how
to write long analytical papers in theoretical language on very niche topics
that only three people in the world care about. i try not to do that on the
site too much, though.


why did you create afterellen.com?
i launched afterellen.com in april of 2002 because i couldn't find any other
sites that focused on this subject area in-depth; most gay sites and magazines
only skim these topics or focus disproportionately on issues relevant primarily
to gay men.


who cares how lesbians/bi women are represented on tv? it's just entertainment,
after all!

you'd be surprised how many people do care--we get emails every day from women
around the world frustrated because they don't have any images of lesbian or
bisexual women in their own countries, and from american women and teens who
can pinpoint the television show or movie that helped them come out to
themselves or others.

anyway, if you don't care, why are you here? go back to the porn sites from
whence you came.

howdy ya'll,

i've been quite the lurker lately but when i read this i just had to comment, despite the futility in doing so, as i don't guess the opinion of one bias fan is going to send this reviewer to her knees.  but she went to the trouble of reviewing the album, the whole thing, obviously put some time and thought into it, and the *only* two reasons she could think of to encourage her audience to buy it were for the *artwork* and the *dvd*!?  you buy an album for the *music*, but thankfully our girls are generous in their giving the dvd and entrusting the artwork to such a great cartoonist, but... come on!

i have no (other) intelligent comments to make, i simply could not understand the convoluted reasons she gave for buying the album, both of which had *nothing* directly to do with the studio album itself.  and i for one will put "atwli" and "tether" on repeat constantly while driving to and from college, blasting it out the window.  i'm sure the passersby on the sidewalks just chalk it up to another one of those damned folk/protest-toting undergraduate dykes.  ah well.

girls' night out
music an-in-hand for georgia's folk-rock mainstay

by robin swartz
lansing state journal

(epic records)
center stage: indigo girls amy ray (left) and amy saliers bring their
folk-rock music to wharton center tonight.

advertisement

closer to fine
=95 who: folk-rock duo indigo girls, with opener girlyman
=95 where: wharton center
=95 when: 7:30 p.m. today
=95 tickets: still available: $20-$35 at 432-2000

today, the socially active folk-rock duo the indigo girls reach msu's
wharton center. while it's not billed as a voter awareness concert,
there will be a message of social and political activism.

"i don't think musicians on their own change the world completely, but
it adds up," said amy ray who, with emily saliers, makes up the
grammy- winning duo.

for the indigo girls, activism has long been a part of their musical
message.

"we're instilling confidence in people to do what they're going to
do," ray said by phone from her home in rural georgia.

"we're educating an audience further about something they already care
about," she said.

regular indigo girls concertgoers are used to seeing groups in the
lobby handing out information on topics from gay rights to american
indian issues.

ray and saliers started performing together in the early 1980s while
still in high school in georgia. with more than 20 years, nine studio
albums and years of activism behind them, they remain one of the
folk-rock genre's most enduring acts. their hits include "closer to
fine," "galileo" and "power of two." their latest cd, "all that we let
in," was released in february. up next is a compilation of rarities.

they maintain separate personal lives and rarely see each other when
they're not recording or touring.

as much as she enjoys performing, ray said it's hard to be on the road
a lot. "i have a lot of good friends here," she said of her georgia
home. "my partner is in film school in new york, so we're doing a
double long- distance life. i really miss my seclusion."

diverse fans

ray says the indigo girls' audience is mostly left of center, but they
do have some conservative fans, too.

"they look beyond our politics and listen to the music," she said. "i
don't know if some of those people can be changed, but ... i've talked
with people from our audience who felt one way about gay people or
native american issues, then sitting with gay people (at our concert)
woke them up."

rolling stone calls them a classic duo: "their pristine and luminary
vocal harmonies alone make crowds hoot and holler. each song has a
totally different energy and tension. with their more lighthearted and
witty songs, emily saliers and amy ray play off each other like a
comedic duo. other times, their songwriting and arrangements are so
clever, you would think that the two fight crime on the side."

power of two

"we don't fight," ray said. "we've realized over time we're stronger
as a duo than as single performers. that's the magic. but we also give
each other space and do our own projects to inject creativity back
into the duo."

for ray, that means working on her second solo album. "i haven't told
anyone the title yet," ray said. "it's 'prom,' like the dance. the
songs just feel that way to me. a lot of these songs are about my
experiences in high school and kids i know now, watching them grow
up." it's due out in april on her own label, daemon records. ray said
saliers is working on demos and writing music.

creative balance

as well as they blend vocally, ray and saliers are polar opposites
musically. ray's tastes lean toward more raw, introspective, socially
charged music with punk influences; saliers draws on gentler
influences - think joni mitchell.

"amy drives me to be more driving in my music at certain points,"
saliers said of ray in an interview on the 2000 ep "cold beer and
remote control." "i live and play through her songs and i want to do
some of that myself. ... for me, it's like having a whole other
musical life that i couldn't create myself."

"what (emily) brings is this ability to tap into that kind of
'everyperson' sentiment," ray said on the ep. "she can come up with
one line that sums it up for a lot of people at one time. and i know
what that line's gonna be when i hear the song for the first time. i'm
like, 'that's the line that everybody's gonna sing.' it's a very
special craft."

raise your voice

at tonight's concert, expect to hear the crowd sing every word.

"a lot of our fans love to come to our shows and just sing at the top
of their lungs," saliers said. "it's a good mix of very heavy material
and then just light-hearted, fun material."

"we play a different set list every night, but with some
similarities," ray said. there are some must-play songs. " 'closer to
fine' and 'galileo' have become great sing-alongs."

ray said their love song "power of two" is one many fans claim as
"their song."

"when we sing it in the show, you look out into the audience and you
see a gay couple and a straight couple dancing next to each other like
it's their song. it's beautiful to me that it can be claimed in the
name of love."

some indigo girls fans have been with the group from the beginning in
the mid-1980s. ray said they can drive the mood of a show.

"i can tell when we have those really strong friends in the audience,"
she said. "they're intent and listening and they have this way of
infecting everyone else with the same pleasure."

all that they let in

as vocal an activist as ray is, she still makes time for fun.

"i ride motorcycles, go hiking. i'm really into movies, books, arts. i
have a very full life. there's not much i'm not enthusiastic about,"
ray said.

"but it's hard to see anything and not see it through a political lens
in my life. when i'm on a ride on my motorcycle for fun, i'll pass by
the landfill and it makes me think."

the activist in her never sleeps.

indigo girls with girly man
indigo girls delight adoring crowd
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
by randell l. bolton - october 14, 2004
special to the courier-journal
there was a buzz of anticipation in the air tuesday night in whitney hall as a
receptive crowd greeted the indigo girls with rousing applause. the duo, amy
ray and emily saliers, rewarded the faithful with a spirited version of "fill
it up again" from their new release, "all that we let in."

the early part of the show featured the women trading off vocal duties and
guitar licks. highlights included "shame on you," where the crowd stood and
clapped along, and "power of two," where the crowd sang the chorus back to the
performers.

the next big moment may have come as a surprise, as the indigo girls welcomed
opening act girly man to the stage for a collaboration on the girls' hit
"closer to fine." the song was met with mighty approval and another sing-along
chorus.

it must be overwhelming at times to have a crowd sing back a piece of music to
you, and the indigo girls seemed ready to accommodate the passionate crowd in
any way possible. this led, however, to the crowd yelling out requests at
sometimes inappropriate moments. during "love's recovery" the crowd noise
nearly obscured a beautiful moment.

the indigo girls ended the show with a high-energy version of "get out the map"
from the 1997 release "shaming of the sun." they then returned and delivered a
three-song encore that was a true fan's dream: "ghost," "land of canaan," and
"galileo" left an already satiated crowd wanting more.

girly man is a spirited trio that warmed the crowd with a quirky attitude and
amazing harmonies. the group opened with paul simon's "born at the right time,"
which showcased their beautiful voices. a fun moment came during "hey rose,"
when vocalist ty greenstein managed to work in a verse of christina aguilera's
"genie in a bottle."

girly man closed with a mean version of "son of a preacher man." this trio may
just be getting started, but judging by the standing ovation they received they
are well on their way to success.
