the oxygen website now lists the show that ig were on in their
schedule.  it's set to replay on friday, 2/27 at 11pm eastern/10 pm
central.  i am thankful as i missed them first time around.  i also
missed them on tuesday's apparent chicago radio performance.  i hear
they performed on the mix 101.9 which is shocking as it's a top 40
station.  any chicagoans hear it or can confirm where they played/what
they played?  so much exposure.  i just love it.--greg

i got to ask them this question i've been wanting to ask them since
the bottom line show.  at the san francisco private show, they did a
q and a (as they did at all of the private shows this time around),
so i had my chance.  anyway, since the bottom line show, when amy
introduced "tether" as another song she wrote for her neighbor, and
endless source of songs for her, i was wondering if amy's neighbor
knows that she's writing all of these songs for him.  more
importantly, i wondered if he knew who she is (not just as amy, his
neighbor, but as amy ray, the indigo girl).  i was pretty stoked to
get that one answered.

the answer was yes, she plays her songs for him (they actually get
along despite their very different political views) and yes, he knows
who she is.

xoxo

subject: [ig-news] ig on wtxm in chicago

yep!  it was quite shocking to hear them on wtmx.  they came on about
3:10-3:15, i think.  i had left work early and was flipping around
stations, and caught the dj said they'd be right back with indigo girls.
he sometimes plays closer to fine, so of course i had to leave it on to
hear what he was going to play, thinking maybe he'd play something off
the new cd.  i almost crashed the car when he came back and said, "we're
live here with amy and emily of the indigo girls".  they did a question
and answer thing with dave fogel (the dj).  he's a smart aleck, and kept
calling amy mean because the last time he met her (4 years ago), he
thought she was mean.  she had to explain that was the february show at
house of blues when she had her appendicitis attack.  she reminded him
she was sick, and he seemed a little impressed that she actually played
at all that night, and called her the example of "the show must go on",
but he still kept calling her "amy, the mean one".  they talked about
touring with shawn mullins this go around, and how he has the same
management company as them.  the dj asked if when they write songs they
think of each other's part on the song.  amy said she never used to
think about it, but now she will write thinking about the parts emily
will sing.  emily said she usually doesn't think about it.  so, he kind
of ran with that about how amy thinks about emily, but emily doesn't
think about amy.  emily said they call his kind a "coat hanger".  he
stirs up trouble, then takes the coats and holds them while he watches
the people fight it out after his comments.  it was pretty funny.  they
talked about their performance on ellen.  both said they don't watch
themselves on t.v.  amy went as far as to laugh and say, "i know what i
look like, i don't need to see it on tv."  it was pretty funny.  but
both of them said they love ellen.  emily said that ellen took singing
with them very seriously, and she did a good job when the dj pointed out
how ellen said she blew closer to fine last time she sang with them
sounding like william shatner sing-talking, emily and amy both said they
love her, and she does a fine, and shouldn't be nervous or worried about
them.  emily did mention she heard their 2nd song got cut off, but said,
"that's tv.".  let's see, what else...the dj teased them about their
tour starting east and going west, since the weather is nicer west right
now they should have started there, and both of the girls laughed about
that.  amy said "we take it where we can get it".  they were on for
maybe 20 minutes.  i guess they had performed a small mini concert for a
few listeners already.  the songs they did live on the radio were
perfect world and closer to fine.  it was really exciting hearing them
on the radio!  if you go to www/wtmx.com, and then to the picture
gallery section, you can see a few pictures from that day.

they were also in town to do a "live from studio x" for wxrt that night.
terri hemmert (chicago's best dj) said the show that night was awesome.
wxrt will be airing it in a couple weeks.

hope that's helpful!

have a good day!
donna

[sherlyn's note: this is an excerpt of a message which was
originally sent to the indigo girls mailing list at
netspace.org.]

okay, friends, i didn't want to write a review of last night's show at the
paradise
lounge because i thought it would appear to be gloating, and, well, i hate
that! but
since so many of you are interested, here goes:

[...]

they let us in around 6 pm, and we all milled around the stage, and drank
and ate,
until the girls came on stage around 7:30. they looked and sounded
wonderful!
especially emily, who looks well-rested, fit, and especially on top of her
game. the
set list, not in exact order:

perfect world
yield
free in you
heartache for everyone
fill it up again
get out the map
galileo
and
perfect world (again-- because amy messed up the lyrics the first time-- she
messed
up the line "if the miracle of daybreak doesn't move you anymore", and
maybe some other lines i didn't notice as much as that one! and they needed
a perfect
recording of it for the radio re-broadcast)

in between songs they answered questions, like the one i quoted earlier
about the
artwork in atwli and los bros hernandez. they also answered a question about
their
greatest musical influences-- amy said hers was 'the southern independent
music
scene' and named some bands like danielle howle, the rock ateens, and some
others
people i can't recall right now. she also said she loved the clash. emily
said-- get
ready for this people-- her greatest musical influence is soul and hip hop,
and she
named (i think) mary j blige and queen latifah...anyone hear that in her
songs? cause
i sure don't! but it's a fun mental image to think of emily rockin' out to
the
sistahs :)

other questions: yes, they are coming back to boston this summer when it's
warm:)
also someone asked what's next for them now that their contract is done with
epic.
amy said a bunch of nice stuff about epic (she was being recorded by the
radio
station, remember) and then said that they hadn't decided yet if they'd be
on an
indie label or a major label (emily clearly wants that choice) but the major
news is
they will be together!!! everyone cheered at that.

the final interesting question was, are they happy with where they are in
their
careers now? emily (who answered most of the questions, surprisingly) said
yes, they
sometimes wished they had more airplay or record sales and they know if they
weren't
lesbians who are outspoken activists they probably would be played more, but
that
doesn't bother them. again lots of cheering!

okay, so that's my recollection. it was a perfect night, albeit too brief.
they
didn't stop to sign or stuff or pose for pictures but they were very nice
about not
doing it.

love them girlies,

sus
