this show is at rock n soul cafe on arapahoe.  it's a no-alcohol, sit-down
establishment, but i guarantee it has the best sound system you've ever
heard.

wed oct 19   7:30 - 10:30 pm     michelle malone &

                                hillstomp

hillstomp - portland oregon punk blues duo hillstomp
gives new life to buckets, cans, and american music.
on their second album,"the woman that ended the
world," north mississippi trance blues, a bit of
appalachia and a dash of punkabilly are duct-taped
into a rockin do-it-yourself hill country blues stomp,
clanging and tumbling from assorted vintage mics,
buckets, cans and bbq lids, drenched in rambunctious
slide guitar. despite their homemade instruments and
novel approach, hillstomp is no joke. with distinctive
songwriting and powerful musicianship, they recycle
traditional elements into something fresh and
exciting.

michelle malone: "...2003's hands-down best americana
release from a female singer-songwriter." - harp
magazine "if the strong songs, crisp guitar work and
soulful vocals of stompin' ground are any indication,
we should start referring to bonnie raitt as the poor
person's michelle malone. -highbias.com "...raucous
and jubilant...somewhere between lucinda williams and
shelby lynne comes michelle malone alternating between
soulful ballads and rowdy, riffy blasters." - rolling
stone.com 4 out of 5 bunnies "... on this loose and
blues-stoked new album, the rough-and-tumble malone
embraces her inner keith richards while churning up
those southern roots with the vigor of lucinda
williams." playboy magazine "malone has plugged in
this time around and ripped the roof of the snack n
shack. she's the real deal. if stompin' ground got any
hotter, you'd have to slap a warning label on the
thing and call it a hazard. " plan 9 mag

hey folks,

here's a slightly old amy interview from lawrence.com (lawrence ks).

on the web site they also have three short mp3s of conversation that
wasn't used in the article, so if you want a little extra go there and
check it out...

cheers,

artist of indigo girls fame dances solo on 'prom'
sunday, october 16, 2005

amy ray loves to break loose and speak her mind.

she's performing solo this fall, free from the big-tour restraints and
perks of the indigo girls, the duo that made her famous.

she's getting back to basics.

"i work a lot faster when i do things alone," she says. "i just don't
have the same kind of money or time. i usually work in really small
studios, in people's houses, in basements, garages, things like that.

"i like to do things for myself, and when something breaks, having to
fix it myself, because i think it gives you a sense of confidence when
you go back to the other things you're doing, that you could -- if you
had to do it alone -- you could do it alone. and that's usually a
pretty good feeling."

ray will play her style of indie punk rock with her band, the
volunteers, at 8 tonight at the bottleneck, 737 n.h. she's promoting
her second solo album, "prom," which was released in the spring.

she's taking a hiatus from the indigo girls, the folksy band she's
played in with emily sailers since 1985. the duo, which has sold 7
million albums and won a grammy award, isn't breaking up. it's set to
resume touring in january.

ray, 41, says she likes the variety of performing contrasting styles
of music.

"it's definitely cathartic," she says during a phone interview from
her home in georgia. "i mean, they're both sort of cathartic, whenever
i switch. it always feels a little bit liberating, just to break it up
a little bit."

no compromise

the music and the lyrics on "prom" are certainly edgier than those
you'd find on an indigo girls album. there aren't any acoustic guitars
here -- it's all electric. and ray says she feels uninhibited to write
about growing up a lesbian in georgia and about gender issues.

"when i'm doing solo stuff, i feel free to just say (what i want)
because i'm not going to worry about whether emily agrees with me or
not -- that whole thing with a partnership where you have to
compromise some," ray says. "i just can speak from a real personal
place, and it's going to come out -- a lot of that graphic queer and
anti-right-wing and anti-authority stuff is going to come out more."

not that ray and sailers haven't done advocacy in the past. in fact,
they're known for their work on a variety of issues, including
gay/lesbian rights, hunger, the environment and the zapatistas, who
are fighting for increased political representation in mexico.

that activism, ray says, is one reason why the indigo girls web site
bio describes the duo as working "within the music industry, without
ever being a product of that industry." (ray herself admits, however,
that she doesn't entirely agree with that statement -- "i think that
would be hypocritical," she says. "i should've edited that bio.")

she says she's proud the indigo girls managed to support local record
stores and avoid most commercial-radio posturing during their 17 years
with the epic label. ray and sailers recently parted ways with epic,
though, and ray says they haven't decided what they'll do next.

"we got a lot of stuff done, and leveraged a lot of support that way,"
ray says. "but in the end, i think there's a point where you are in
danger of becoming too much a part of the industry and you need to get
out and switch to a different company at least, and switch hopefully
down to a smaller company."

'oasis'

ray says she likes lawrence for its vintage clothing stores. the last
time she was here, she, sailers and environmental advocate winona
laduke attempted to visit convicted murderer and american indian
advocate leonard peltier at the federal penitentiary in leavenworth.
they were denied access but talked to peltier on the phone instead.

coming to kansas, ray is well-aware of the approved constitutional
amendment banning gay marriage that divided the state in the spring.
she also knows that douglas county was the only place in the state to
vote against the amendment.

"keep it up, is what i'd say because i love lawrence for that reason,"
she says. "it's like this oasis, i mean politically speaking. i think
it's a great place."

despite the gay marriage amendments that have passed across the
country, ray says she's not discouraged.

"i think people can change," she says. "i think that you have to talk
to people from where they're coming from, and you have to understand
where they're coming from. so i think if you live in a place, sort of
an oasis in this more conservative area, it's good to have dialogue
with people that don't agree with you and figure out why."

'prom' date

with "prom," ray is both breaking new ground musically and returning
to her roots. she says she chose the title and concept after writing
the songs for the album, realizing the youth theme.

even the photos for the album -- featuring ray wearing a variety of
high school-related outfits, from a geeky sweater to a football
uniform -- are a throwback to her younger days. she borrowed them from
former high school classmates.

and yes, ray did go to her senior prom.

"i went with a girl, and i was totally in love with her, but we
weren't like ... we didn't really know what that meant," she says. "we
just kind of went as best friends. we kind of went together, but we
were with a group of people. we all just had friends and whatever.

"i don't really remember much about it. i always went to the dances
and had fun and was pretty participatory, just kind of had a good time
in the face of the normal kind of high school suffering that went on.=94

that's awesome. i'm glad they're finally breaking out of the "indie
singer/songwriter" collaberations for once.

who knows? maybe we'll see them on trl.

hey all,

i wanted to let people know about this very cool new women and guitar
collection coming out on nov 1 on vanguard records=2e  patty larkin has
created a 14 track cd intended to shed some light on the achievements of
women playing guitar, archival and current=2e  this particular cd is prett=
y
much instrumental, but i know that it is meant to be only the first of suc=
h
collections to cover more of the spectrum of women playing guitar=2e

patty's summary of the cd:
la guitara is a snapshot of an ever-changing landscape=2e it is
a glimpse of how women have influenced the guitar over time=2e
an aural image in the feminine form=2e the women on this
compilation are innovators and educators, alt types and
concert hall performers, jazzers, blues players, composers and
interpreters=2e they have been around for a long time, they just
broke onto the scene, they are our archetypes and our future
heroines=2e they are only the tip of the iceberg=2e to say that
our research led us to hundreds of women players of the
instrument would not be an exaggeration=2e we had the
unenviable task of selecting from talent too numerous to
mention, but too amazing to overlook=2e we ended up choosing the
music and the stories and the history for what we now consider
to be the first installment of la guitara=2e

there's a tour starting in november with patty, kaki king, mimi fox and
muriel anderson, and another in march with patty, kaki, and sharon isbin=2e=

hi there,everyone.   i am the faculty advisor for our school's gsa.   just a
bit of background, we are a small private school, k-12 in the northeast.   our
gsa has taken on a project of bringing diversity to the classroom and
examining textbooks, etc.   they have approached the librarian of the
middle/upperschool library about subscribing to a magazine that focuses on lgbt issues.   the
only magazine that the kids could offer as a suggestion was the advocate.   i
brought the librarian in a copy from home so that she could peruse it.
neither the librarian or i are sure if this is entirely appropriate for a library
that deals with middle and upper school kids.   (age 11-19)    if any of you
have any suggestions, i would love to get them.   please email me.   thanks
very much!   :-)
