---begin forwarded article---
still together after all these years
the indigo girls' amy ray on how she makes a

- by stephanie kinnear -

there is some misinformation being spread about the indigo girls. nothing
that'll make people magazine or cost anyone millions in legal fees -- but,=
just
to set the record straight, amy ray and emily saliers' musical relationship=

started in 1980. unfortunately, some people have their dates confused.=
"twenty
years after the indigo girls began making music, amy ray and emily saliers
return this fall with a new album, despite our differences ..." reads a=
press
release that came through our office.

"well, actually, it's been a lot longer than that. i don't know where=
they're
pulling 20 years out of. 'cause they keep saying that, and we've actually=
been
playing together since 1980. but we've been recording ... i think they mean=
we
started recording in '85," explains amy ray from mankato, minn., where the
indigo girls are making a stop on their current tour.

however, she doesn't seem too concerned about the mix-up, or even interested=
in
anniversaries. as she puts it: she and longtime musical partner emily=
saliers
are too busy looking forward to worry much about what happened in the past=
--
even if that past does encompass 11 albums and a grammy (not to mention=
another
handful of grammy nominations).

the two actually met when ray was in fifth grade and saliers was in sixth,=
and
began making music during their high school years. in 1988, the duo was=
signed
to epic records, and the following year they released their first=
major-label
album. indigo girls showcased what has become ray and saliers' trademark=
sound:

airtight, ambitious harmonies accompanied by masterful acoustic guitar.

now, 18 years after the release of that grammy award-winning effort, not=
much
has changed for the two -- they're still together making albums full of=
lively
folk-inspired tracks and the occasional heart wrenching ballad.

so, what's the secret to such a successful relationship? (if you think about=
it
-- the indigo girls have been together about 19 years longer than most=
marriages
last. and they have to work together.)

according to ray, it's a few things. "we're sort of aware of the need to=
nurture
the relationship over time and make sure that we're giving each other the=
space,
creatively, that we need. we're very, extremely careful about everything, to=

keep our partnership going. it's definitely a whole system," ray says,=
laughing,
"and it works."

they also have their own projects that they work on outside of the indigo=
girls.
ray, for instance, has released two albums of solo material -- some of it is=

inline with the roots-driven folk she records as an indigo girl, and some of=
it
betrays a very different, punk-infused influence. "[playing solo] is really=

important. i mean, i think it's integral right now for me; it kind of goes
hand-in-hand with the indigo girls for me ... but i prioritize the=
partnership i
have with emily, because it's something that is special, and i don't want
anything to happen to it," she explains.

it probably also helps that the two are fierce activists and in agreement on=
the
issues. over the years, ray and saliers have penned songs that criticize our=

government's dealings with the native american community, our government's
treatment of the gay community -- they've written about war (you can imagine=
how
they feel about it) and the environment. and on their most recent effort,
despite our differences they keep on hammering away -- this time, on the=
opener
"pendulum swinger," they give it good to the guy in the oval office. "what=
we
get from your war walk/ticker of the nation breaking down like a bad clock i=

want the pendulum to swing again /so that all your mighty mandate was just
spitting in the wind," they sing in perfect harmony.

right now, they're making their way across the country in a bus equipped=
with a
diesel engine that they have been trying to fill up with vegetable oil as=
often
as possible. they're also, as this story goes to press, fired up about the
midterm elections.

"i think there's a lot of awareness of the midterm elections being=
important,"
says ray. "i feel optimistic actually ... 'cause i think people are just=
tired
of the status quo right now and want something to change."

so, as a quick synopsis, how to make a relationship work, per ray's advice:=
look
forward, not backwards, give each other a little space, prioritize the
relationship ... oh, and vote for the same candidates.

the indigo girls play the ventura theatre on nov. 11. for more information,=

quesadillas for everyone!

hi intimate strangers,

i had a blast at tonight's concert.  i hadn't read anything about their
opening act, bitch, but she was an animal!  props to her for her brassness
and musicality all wrapped into her pussymanifesto.  she brought up the fact
that nancy pelosi is going to be speaker of the house, and the crowd roared.

here's the setlist: courtesy of spike on indigovortex.com

13 nov, los angeles, ca @ the wiltern

little perennials
pendulum swinger
heartache for everyone
least complicated
three county highway
run
ozilline
power of two
rock and roll heaven's gate
lay my head down
devotion
trouble
moment of forgiveness
fly away
money made you mean
fill it up again
shame on you
baby don't you break my heart slow (vonda shepard with emily)
closer to fine (with bitch, vonda shepard, daniella sea, bitch's band, and
lisa loeb)
go
virginia woolf

(encore)
dirt and dead ends
get out the map
tether
galileo

the energy at the show was just so there for me--but i've only gone to 26?,
oh it must be 30 by now, concerts.  amy and emily looked terrific and
excited to be in l.a.  it was funny--amy temporarily forgot they were going
to do their "fake" exit and started introducing dade; then backtracked and
both of them thanked the crowd and left the stage.

i got up to dance during pendulum swinger, and the 50-something costa rican
guy behind me tapped my shoulder and said, "go down there and dance
there"--point down at the crowd near the stage.  i continued dancing and he
poked me again,"i can't see, go down there and dance."  and i said to him,
"i'll only stand for this song."  heehee.  i was a goof with the ps dance,
but i had fun!

the girls didn't chat alot--they loved playing.  oh you can tell they thrive
on electric!  they asked us to check out the tables in the back for amnesty
international, one, and others.

the highlights for me were: trouble, fly away; hearing rock and roll
heaven's gate live, and tether.  well, besides swinging my pendulum.

on closer to fine, lisa loeb was trying to figure out a way to get on stage.
  she was in the right aisle with one of the wiltern security people looking
around, and emily mentioned her predicament--lisa looked up when emily
mentioned her name and you could see the crowd react.  she got up there
through a side door.

bitch looked sooo thrilled to be up there singing the third verse on ctf,
and then again with them on galileo.

that's all from here--more manana.

diane

p.s. amy was in a black-grey shirt and small checked pants; emily was in a
brown t-shirt (couldn't see the picture) and blue jeans.
