thanks!

i saw this list and was happy that both ig and tori did well. however, my
wish that both little earthquakes and indigo girls would make the top 100
did not come true. so close, though!

i was a little surprised become you didn't make it. i thought that was one
of their best.

cheers,

hey folks,

here's an article from the news record, from the university of
cincinnati (which i've just learned has three ns and only one t !)

you can read it online at:
http://www.newsrecord.org/media/paper693/news/2005/10/24/artsentertain
ment/amy-ray.to.rock.southgate.house-1030805.shtml?page=3d2

amy ray to rock southgate house
by laura sayer

amy ray and the volunteers will perform at newport's southgate house
this tuesday to promote ray's newest solo album, prom.

the album cover, an old photo of a little girl swathed in a million
ruffles of a prom dress, gives way to the stark liner notes, which
feature ray dressed in various roles: jock, cheerleader and nerd among
others.

but the songs on the album are not nearly so stark, nor role-oriented.

although political and social ideas are at work here, the southern
rock and punk whole is an emotive mosaic of all the influences of that
act upon a mind, body and soul in formation.

ray said the album is about "camaraderie, perspective, how you become
politicized, where your energy comes from."

the upbeat rhythm spins quickly through the story, but upon
dissection, the lyrics are pearls of raw and brilliant wisdom.

the album opens with "alright, i hear what you're saying to me/
alright, i hear what i just can't do/but i got this spark; i got to
feed it something/or put it out for good."

the song "blender" complicates these feelings, documenting how each
adolescent gets mixed, "blended" into the whole of society.

ray poses the question, "how do we sing against the system, when we're
a main offender?" and her answer is stunning: "put it in a blender,
and let me get the hang of how we fit together and how we came to be."

the album fixes a narrow frame of reference, which ray said,
incredulously, was not that difficult: "i just started writing songs,
then fell into that groove."

ray said in a phone interview that she's excited about playing solo in
cincinnati, since she's never visited the city apart from the indigo
girls, the female songwriter duo she's been identified with since
their self-titled debut in 1989.

she described her solo tour with words like "grassroots" and
"independent," while she said "the indigo girls have something that i
could never achieve on my own: having a partner, harmony. the constant
compromise shares a burden."

for ray, the name of her fellow musicians, the volunteers, express the
spirit of the revolving group of performers and conveys a sense of
their energy and community.

although ray said she didn't have a specific political agenda with
this album, she certainly connects the high school age group through
her activism in the areas of indigenous issues, the environment,
pro-choice, racism and homosexual issues.

but the activist in ray developed second to the performer.

"i knew all along that i would always do this," ray said, then
clarified herself, "but i guess i didn't feel completely solid until
about 10 years ago."

this was the point, ray said, where she realized that success is not
measured by a record deal, but by where you're at with your own
abilities.

"i got to this place where i understood that it was always going to be
about the process, and that was okay," she said.

originally from atlanta, ray studied religion and english at emery
university. she said that performing on campus, with all those people
knowing and supporting you, makes college a great time to be
developing as an artist.

while her day-to-day life is fairly structured by the tour, at home,
during periods when she's writing, she must discipline herself.

"otherwise," ray said, "i'd never do anything."

but ray also said she honors her obligations to others. "inevitably,
there are people connected to you, that are effected by your actions,"
she said, adding that this is not just a personal philosophy, but a
political idea, one that fuels the sense of community in her activism.

"every time you turn on a light switch, you're consuming something...
and are you ok with that," ray said.

ray said she does not have separate personal and political agendas,
but that her two sides "inform each other."

the musician and her album share this sense of wholeness; amy ray's
intelligent activist has informed the feeling adolescent, and the
result is prom.

(cross posted quite widely)

hey y'all!

well, it's over.

after flying across country twice for this thing, renting two cars,
numerous nights spent driving, and loads of road food, i'm still
tired.

i live on the west coast, and i am pleased to have been able to do
five shows this time around. sure, nothing will ever match being able
to do the whole west coast tour last may, but five shows in a far away
place (for me) was pretty damn good.

first of all, all of the setlists i have are here:
http://indigovortex.com/forum/calendar.php

we are still missing nashville, louisville, lexington, ann arbor (and
that in-store), and knoxville. if anyone has them, please post them in
the setlist thread at indigo vortex or email me. i'd love to have a
complete archive of the whole tour online for everyone to look back
on.

secondly, i love looking at photos from the tour. here are my two
albums (divided up by geographic region):

http://www.kodakgallery.com/i.jsp?c=3dx59rrzr.5x5i7g9f&x=3d1&y=3d-tntj3 (th=
e south)

http://www.kodakgallery.com/i.jsp?c=3dx59rrzr.awr62zab&x=3d1&y=3d-sv605n (t=
he midwest)

and if anyone wants to look at some *older* photos,
http://www.kodakgallery.com/i.jsp?c=3dx59rrzr.1hvgjukj&x=3d1&y=3d-9tqjdw
(west coast tour, may 2005) (these pictures kind of suck because i
didn't have my digital camera yet)

will told me about plans for a spring tour. i can not wait. no matter
where it is, i'm gonna try to do the whole thing again. my original
plans were to do the whole roctober tour, but my friends ended up
getting married right in the midst of it, and i had to go to greece
for work. oh well... next time. and there will be a next time!

i really enjoyed meeting a lot of you on the road!

until next time,

ps- today's will's birthday! happy birthday, will!!!!

just finally had time to check out kari's chart.  very, very  cool.  i love
shit like that.

more than anything, though, it reminds me of how i regret not travelling
east for the $10 tour in 1992.  what i wouldn't give to have them play "my"
setlist!

interestingly, i've learned that the setlist largely determines how much i
enjoy a concert.  i'd say that, the venue, and my personal location have as
much to do with my enjoyment as the performance itself.

set list is important, but for me, what puts a concert over the top is the
energy of the performers. i've had ig turn a show with a mediocre set into
an amazing show just by their sheer energy. on the other side of the coin, a
show with a great set list can suck if the performer isn't into it. a truly
divine show is when the performrers are giving it their all and the set list
kicks ass. ig did this at ithaca in '90, asbury park in '01 or '02, and
buffalo in 03. those are among the best concerts i've  evers seen.

cheers,

tom m.

i like this discussion.

i've been to over 100 indigo girls shows all over the country (plus my
fair share of aray solo gigs).  i agree that there are so many
components in what makes an "excellent" gig.  setlist is a huge part,
but it's not always the only thing.

this past summer, ig played in napa, california.  the setlist was
stellar.  "world falls," "prince of darkness," "welcome me," "fourth
of july" (amy's new song - ? on the working title), "love's recovery,"
and "scooter boys" were all in the set.  amazing amazing setlist.=20
perhaps (at least recently) my best setlist.  and amy and emily were
so into it too.  they seemed happy and full of energy.

but for the most part, the crowd sucked.  no one was getting into it.=20
security was tight and wouldn't let people dance, even when a&e
specifically requested that we get up during "closer to fine."  no one
was singing either.  in fact, this was one of the few (recent) shows
i've been at where emily had to sing the third verse of c2f (as
opposed to having the crowd or an opener sing it).

i still had an awesome time, but napa was not my best ever show.  it's
not even in my top 5.  my recent best show  was a show in tucson.  the
setlist was sweet.  not stellar (nowhere near napa quality), but very
good.  what made that show was the crowd.  everyone was so into it,
and our energy fed amy and emily.  everyone sang every word to just
about every song - the only exception being "chiapas bound."  those of
us who knew it sang softly, those who didn't know it listened.  you
could hear a pin drop.

anyway, for me there are so many components that go into making a
stellar show.  setlist is a huge factor (huge... some of the
not-so-excellent shows i've been to do indeed lack that setlist), but
for me it's not everything.

:)

hi all

i'm joanna.  i was a member of this list some years
ago.

i'm currently studying contemporary music and am doing
a performance assignment on the indigo girls.

i also need to present a research paper with
references.  much of the information about the girls
which is stored in my head i gained from being a
member of this list, and therefore is difficult to
clarify and reference without access to the archives.

i was wondering if it is possible to access the
archives of this list and how i would do that?

any help is appreciated.  my assignment is due nov 3rd
so i hope to hear something soon.

thanks muchly

joanna
