thanks for reading,

"can you mr. bush light the sage"
--- tori amos, "indian summer"

here are my bitter, bitter post-election thoughts:

memo to the democrats: knock it the fuck off, you useless gits. what you're
doing is not working. stop pandering to the moderate voters. they have
chosen republicans and they will fuck you every time. your spineless
vacillating and lack of charisma and vision, all in the name of wooing that
elusive "undecided voter," didn't work in 2000 and it sure as fuck did not
work in 2004. in fact, it has made matters worse. absorb this into your
consciousness as true and deal with it.

get some balls. reclaim the word "liberal" and make "conservative" the
pejorative term. people suddenly care so much about "moral values"? remind
people where the moral high ground really is-- with love your neighbor (even
if he's gay), with the constitution, which guarantees separation of church
and state and seeks to "secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and
our posterity." what about beating swords into plowshares? what about "a
camel shall pass through the eye of a needle before a rich man will enter
the kingdom of heaven"? turn their own rhetoric on them. it'd be easy as sin
if only you found someone with passion and vision and... actually gave him
the nomination, you arrant fools!

finally, return the love of your long-suffering, oft-neglected faithful: the
african americans, the gays, the environmentalists, the urban poor, the old
school lefties, the young people. inspire them, show them you care about
their values and their agendas, after taking them for granted for so long in
order to court demographics that will fuck you before they kiss you. it's
time to remember that liberalism means caring about the little guy, caring
about the planet, caring about the oppressed. this is our america too,
dammit.

until you do these things, democratic party, you will hang your head in
defeat as you have today. and you know what? you deserve it.

hello y'all,

well after an awesome show in providence the other night the "see as many
local shows as you
can bug" has hit me once again.

i am looking for 2 tickets for tomorrow's show in keene nh.  if anyone has a
pair to spare i'm willing to pay more than face value for them.

you can email me or call my work # and leave a message 413-529-7364.

otherwise, i'll probably just drive up and hope the box office will release
some or someone is
trying to unload some before showtime.  thanks.

take care and peace!

deb

by ed condran
correspondent

it's been almost 20 years since amy ray and emily saliers formed the indigo
girls. much has changed in the world of music since the southern
vocalists/guitarists broke on the scene, but the indigo girls remain a
constant. fans know what to expect from the pair, who veer from poignant folk,
salier's forte, to gritty rock, ray's specialty.

the indigo's 1999 album "become you" featured moving, dramatic folk music,
while 2002's inspired "come on now social" featured passionate rock 'n' roll.

"we do whatever moves us," saliers said while calling from new haven, conn. "we
each do our own thing well."

each of the indigo's strengths are showcased on the act's latest release, "all
that we let in." ray sounds like she is channeling neil young's crazy horse
throughout the dramatic "tether," and saliers' gorgeous "something real" is a
bittersweet, smart and sensitive track.

"we each did what we do best," saliers said. "we had a lot of fun as well as
creative satisfaction."

coming up with set lists isn't easy for the duo, who will perform wednesday at
the count basie theater in red bank. they have 10 albums' worth of material.

"it's hard to make everyone happy," saliers said. "obviously, you're going to
hear a good bit of the new album when we come to town," saliers said. "we do
take a look at each album and try to figure out what we're going to do to make
a night's worth of music. it's a challenge but touring is still a great deal of
fun. not everything is great but overall it's something that we enjoy a great
deal. we have no problem representing all the points of our career."

an indigo girls show wouldn't be complete without tracks from such consistent
indigo discs as the act's 1989 eponymous release, 1990's "nomad indian saints"
or 1994's "swamp ophelia." each of those projects is a showcase for the duo's
strong harmonic skills and songwriting virtues.

"even though the songs on those albums aren't new they still sound fresh to
us," saliers said. "it's a lot of fun to play them and watch the audience sing
along to the well-worn songs. the fans will be expecting those songs."

hey everyone.

did anyone else in keene think think that last night's show was one of =
the best they've seen besides me?  it was definitely a sit down crowd =
last night, but the energy flowing from a&e to the crowd, and visa =
versa,  was amazing, the sound was perfect, their voices =
perfection...was it just me?  we were in the 3rd to last row on the =
floor and the girl next to me was recording so i didn't sing and had the =
opportunity to just listen to the music, voices, guitars...it was =
amazing.  we tend to miss so much when we sing.=20
my friend and i were talking on the way home about the show and i =
mentioned how beautiful emily's voice was and how passionate amy's voice =
was, and m said that amy and her guitar seemed to be one, and that amy =
was always moving, but she and her guitar seemed to be connected, moving =
as one unit.  really cool image, i thought.

the show started out with amy not being able to hear emily in her ear =
thingys.  e was playing along, not realizing that a had a problem.  =
pretty funny.  she seemed surprised when a didn't join in.  later on amy =
broke a string during let it ring, said shit, and sully brought her =
another mandolin to start the song again.  she didn't tell a story =
before one song, said that emily would appreciate her not telling the =
story.  said they'd driven over from manchester - jeez!  i bet they =
drove right past my house!!!!  i don't remember all the songs, but heard =
watershed, (i just love when amy sings the first line of the chorus and =
her vibrato sounds just so...perfect...up on the watershed....), let it =
ring, ctf (with trina from three5human - awesome opening band!!!!!) =
tether (again with three5human) opened the show, gotm, soy, pot, =
ghost....such a great show.

any other reviews?

hi folks,

i was at the red bank show last night and thought i'd post a brief review to
this list. the girls were in very good form, and i think emily's voice may
have been the best i've heard it in a long time. she really was hitting the
high notes and holding notes for a long time. amy smiled a lot and danced
around the stage.

the opening band, three5human, was pretty awesome, but the music drowned out
the vocals. this was a shame, because the lead singer, trina, had a great
set of pipes, and the lyrics that i could make out were interesting. emily
joined them for vocals on one song and amy and emily came out and did tether
with them. i noticed on tether that emily let the three5human guitarist take
the lead. i thought that was interesting.

ig came on after a brief break. the set list:

fill it up again
devotion
hammer and a nail
perfect world
power of two
shame on you
the wood song
heartache for everyone
love's recovery
become you
collecting you
let me go easy (new song)
least complicated
rodeo (??--new song, just amy)
------
hey rose (sung by girlyman)
----
get out the map
dairy queen
our deliverance
go
closer to fine
-------
encores:
galileo
finlandia

not as much of the new cd as i would've thought and no free in you :-(. the
band for the songs varied; some were just amy and emily, some were them plus
an accordion player, and some were the girls plus the members of girlman
with or without the accordion player. the accordion was most excellent on
love's recovery; it really brought some new life to that song. heartache for
everyone was played with just a+e and it was an amazing rendition. dairy
queen was also just the two of them, and emily played the mandolin. that
seemed unusual to me and i can't remember ever seeing emily play mandolin
before. can someone tell me if she usually does? our deliverance was
especially moving tonight and cheers went up at the "love your neighbor as
yourself line." all the additional players plus trina of three5human joined
the girls for closer to fine. finlandia, which i'd never heard before, was
a+e plus girlyman. it was so moving and a fitting way to close this
post-election show. my eyes teared up, i'll admit it.

anyway, it was a great show and i got to hear four songs i've never heard
the girls perform before (including devotion, one of my all-time faves). the
audience was a little too chattery, but otherwise it was a great night.

keep posting the reviews and set lists folks.

cheers,
tom m.

hey, was anyone else at the keswick theatre in the philly area last =
night? i don't regularly check their bbs or website so i hadn't realized =
it was their finally stop on this particular tour.

it was a dreary night weather wise (steady cold rain is the worst,imho) =
but the atmosphere changed quickly once we were inside the theatre. the =
girls were in great spirits, emily especially, was in great voice. you =
could hear the strain of the tour on amy's voice at times most =
noticeably on "cordova".

three five human (?) was the warm up act and i was bitterly disappointed =
it wasn't girlymen that everyone has been raving about. amy and emily =
both made appearances with them during their set, amy doing a passionate =
version of "tether" that was kick a**!!!

there was a good amount of political talk by both groups which cheered =
jordan and i up a bit since we had been hoping that when we went to this =
concert we'd be celebrating kerry's win. "our deliverance" brought me to =
tears and made me vow to do everything in my power to help end this war.

the crowd was pretty quiet for the first several songs but eventually =
got riled up with "gotm" and then "shame on you"
which ended with 95% of the audience on its feet and dancing. the girls =
stroked our philly egos by praising us saying they thought this was a =
great audience to play their last show of this tour for. then they =
played a cheery version of "least complicated" which is dear to us in =
the philly area since they choose the version we sang on from the =
recording done at the tower theatre in philly for their "1200 curfews" =
live cd.

the cherry top of a fantastic show for me was their encore playing "mona =
lisas and mad hatters". if you were in the very back right corner of the =
audience you might have heard my spontaneous "yes!" when emily sang "and =
now i know," when i knew they were finally playing one of my "wishlist" =
songs. i've been to probably 15 or so shows in the last 9 years or so. i =
try to catch them with my son when ever they are in striking distance of =
philly. in 2004 we've gotten to see them in feb, june and now in =
november so this has been a great concert year. i've always fervently =
wished to hear "mlamh",
"virginia woolf" and "watershed" in concert and they finally played =
"mlamh" and it made my night.=20

i'm not organized enough to keep track of the set list. does anyone else =
have one or any thoughts on the show?

hey all,
it's rare, rare, rare that i post, but i just wanted to share a little with
you about this amazing singer/songwriter - heather combs.  she plays mostly
in the san francisco/bay area and reno right now, but will soon be trying her
luck around the country.  i know for a fact that a lot of you will love her
music!  she reminded me a little of ig's style when i first heard her, but  not
as much now that i've been to a million of her shows.  her lyrics and
intensity on stage are what drew me to her at first.  and she can play a  mean
guitar.
her website:  _www.heathercombs.com_ (http://www.heathercombs.com)     i
can't remember if there are sample songs to listen to..if not and you'd like to
hear some, contact me and i'll supply em.

and...if you're in or near the sf bay area tonite, come see her at the
little fox theatre in redwood city.  for more info on the show, email  me.

hey folks,

this is an excerpt from an article from the columbus ledger-enquirer.
it's long so i won't quote the whole thing here, but you can read it
online at (url should be all on one line):

city prepares for protesters

security fence erected to contain massive crowd
by mick walsh
staff writer

[...]

anyone who has lived in this area for the past 15 years is well aware of father
roy, his legions of soa watch followers and the annual november protest at the
gates of fort benning.

his aim, and that of the movement, is to close down the western hemisphere
institute for security cooperation, which replaced the school of the americas
in 2001. the soa had moved to fort benning in 1984 from panama.

[...]

next weekend's protest is expected to attract almost 15,000 people, ranging
from spirited college students, many from the country's 28 jesuit colleges, to
seasoned adult marchers, including dozens of military retirees, to hollywood
celebrities, including oscar winner susan sarandon.

[...]

celebrities such as martin sheen, the indigo girls, sister helen prejean of
"dead man walking" fame, folk singer pete seeger and others have spoken to the
mass of protesters. sarandon, who played sister helen in the movie based on her
book, will address the crowd at saturday's rally sometime between 11:30 a.m.
and 5 p.m. songwriter utah phillips and indigo girl amy ray will also be on the
card.

the gathering will culminate on sunday with a solemn funeral procession to the
main gate. many protesters will then cross over into fort benning in an act of
nonviolent civil disobedience.

[...]

my primary thoughts on the show are that mona lisas and mad hatters was absolutely awesome and that philly audiences like to sit during shows, which is not my preferred method of observation.

i didn't write down the setlist, but the songs were:

tether (during the opener's set)
power of two
yield
let it be me
fill it up again
shame on you
get out the map
become you
perfect world
let me go easy
new amy song
cordova
our deliverance
hammer and a nail
heartache for everyone
least complicated
philosophy of loss
chicken--bitteroot--man
wood song
closer to fine (w/ 35human lead singer)

encore: mona lisas and mad hatters
galileo
