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

although the venue, meijer gardens, is absolutely beautiful, we really couldn't experience the warmth of a lovely summer's evening because it was, literally, a drench fest.  and it was chilly.  it pretty much poured all evening, and when emily came on stage, she said, kind of in a "yipes" way, "you're a hardy group!  we've been watching everyone arrive from our dry bus."

[...]

it was ironic, given the climate, that our local tv weatherwench, terri deboer, introduced the girls.  terri puts the "bland" in bland rapids.  so the girls come out, no exciting fashion statements, as it was just down right chilly.  long sleeved shirts and black pants.  they opened with tether.  because of my syndrome, can't remember sh*t, i can't remember the set list in order, but i'll do my best to run down what i remember:

tether
heartached for everyone
fill it up again
free in you
something real
perfect world
all that we let in
dairy queen
rise up
yield
tangled up in blue (yeah!)
shame on you
ghost (yeah again!)
power of two
least complicated
go
trouble
tried to be true
closer to fine

encore:
moment of forgiveness (nice!)
gallileo

deconstruction might have been in there, too...or maybe that's just my wishful thinking.

they were tight, sounded great.  the girls appeared to be truly grateful that everyone was out there toughing it out.  personally, although i truly enjoyed myself, i felt the crowd was a little bit lame...they just didn't have the fire in their bellies that i've come to expect at indigo girls concerts.  the lack of political activism and enthusiasm is something that really annoys the heck out of me here in this republican town, and the folks were true to form last night, as well.  sigh.  however, since we were up front, we were in the heart of the positive indigo vibe, and the people standing near the stage were singing their hearts out and rockin'!  i met some great people up there.  favorites include tangled up in blue (saw them do that in detroit a few years back...wow!), ghost, fill it up again, all that we let in...oh hell, i loved it all.

and, i hung around long enough to get a yellow pick.

thanks for reading.

vicki
