subject: [ig-news] amy in boulder 5/9/05

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

note:  i started this tuesday, but didn't have time to get back to it  until
today, thursday.

amy's show in boulder was last night.  a good time was had by  all.

[...]

after everyone got settled, we left in search of food, coming back before
the opening band, family outing.  much like the ig opener i saw a few  months
ago (can't seem to remember their name right now), i can see what amy  sees in
them, but they're just not all that good, at least not as of yet.

[...]

unfortunately, the house was only about 1/2 full, maybe 300 people.   it's a
terrible shame.  if amy had mentioned the date at the ig show in  denver a
month ago, it would have sold out within a week, imo.  [...]

but back to the show.  the show itself was fabulous, but entirely too  short.
what she played kicked some ass, but the show was only 1 hour and 5
minutes, which just plain sucked.  i'm astounded that she didn't learn all  the songs
from the two albums and then toss in a cover tune or two or  three.  the
production sheet had said 9:15-10:30 plus encore.  that's  still a damn short
show, imo, but respectable for those with a punk ethic.   (me, i was happy with
victor wooten's 3 1/2 hour show the other night!)   1:05 was lame.  she claimed
to not know any more songs.  someone  shouted out to play them again.  the
crowd (me included) loved the  idea.  unfortunately, it didn't happen.

i don't know prom, yet, but i think she played all of that plus half of
stag.  lucystoners, mountains of glory, put it out, and rural faggot were
particular highlights, imo.  also, imo, lucystoners is one of best  songs anyone has
written in the past five years.

[...]

i think that's it.  i'm out of time.
