subject: [ig-news] asheville concert review/set list

[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo
girls mailing list at netspace.org.]

greetings all,

i'm just back from asheville and saturday night's concert under the stars (ok,
mostly clouds) at mccormick field. i hadn't seen the girls in something like 8
years, so was ecstatic to feel a concert again, and to bring my wife for her
first ever. they girls have still got it. seen live, they still move me.

given that it was basically the first (non-georgia) concert of the tour, and
first they've played with a band in a long time (so they said), and first
concert of any kind ever in this stadium, everything was pretty tight. most
noticeable glitch had nothing to do with coordinating the band or the
production; amy flubbed a lyric in land of canaan ("my blood is growing thin"
!!), and backed everybody up a bar to redo it properly.

of the ~10 times i've seen the girls, this was by far the loudest, most electric
set, but then again i last saw them on the sots tour or thereabouts, so the
whole repertoire was much less electric back then anyway. three county highway
was totally intense; heartache for everyone, trouble, and tether completely
rocked. so did rock & roll heaven's gate, possibly my fave on dod (with emily
doing a passable p!nk). i hope that song will stick in the concert rotation even
after this tour. someone else will have to report whether dirt & dead ends was
as intense and gut-wrenching as it could be; i definitely don't "get" the song
to start with. i like emily. i like pop porridge. what can i say? :)

the crowd was slightly less into the show than i've sometimes seen, but maybe
that's because 10 songs of it were new material that very few people seemed able
to sing along to yet. what, not everybody spent the last two weeks studying it
for just that purpose as i did? :) i should say, though, enough people were
dancing in the aisles by the encores that event staff gave up stopping them as
they had done earlier in the show. crowd 1, buzz-killers 0.

the asheville citizen-times has a write-up saying 4000 attended, when the
stadium was configured to 5300. seems about right to me; it looked fairly full
but definitely not sold out. see
http://www.citizen-times.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?aid=200660930056 for article;
from that page click "indigo girls at mccormick field" under "web extras..." for
a photo gallery.

about the set: after pre-opener scott little (which i missed nearly all of) and
a ~40 minute opener by the weepies (good material; i don't love deb's voice),
the girls came on about 8:50 and played for about 1 hr 40 min. set list was as
follows (all songs ig with the band except as noted):

pendulum swinger
little perennials
get out the map
moment of forgiveness
run
shame on you
power of two
three county highway
fill it up again
money made you mean
fly away*
dairy queen**
closer to fine+
rock & roll heaven's gate
i believe in love
devotion
the wood song**
heartache for everyone
all the way
dirt & dead ends++
trouble
tether

encore:
land of canaan**
galileo

- --------------------

* emily only
** duo, no band
+ with the weepies (ig left last verse entirely to them)
++ amy and band only

cheers!

hi folks,

here's a review from creative loafing.  you'd think that, being an atlanta paper
and all, they could find someone who could tell the difference between amy and
emily, but apparently not...

indigo girls gone wild
despite our differences
by david lee simmons

published 10.04.2006

there's something alternately reassuring and unsettling about the indigo girls'
latest release, despite our differences. it is being promoted as a landmark
release of sorts, on many levels. they're celebrating 20 years together (even
though they formed in 1985) and their first album on hollywood records after
leaving epic records last year. there's also the fact it was recorded outside
their "comfort zone" of georgia and instead in the california home of producer
mitchell froom.

throw in some guest vocals by pink and newbie singer/songwriter brandi carlisle,
and you'd think we'd have something revolutionary going on here.

what's unsettling about all this is how -- despite all these differences --
familiar despite our differences still sounds. because no matter how boundaries
are pushed, the indigo girls remain a very reassuring duo who trade on
soft-imagery lyrics, pitch-perfect harmonies and soothing acoustic flourishes.
still politically savvy, still relationship-weary, still pondering everything
from feminism to the good old healing power of love, this pair comforts even
when it tries to challenge.

it's a shame the girls didn't push the boundaries even further, because efforts
such as "rock and roll heaven's gate" are flat-out head-turners by their
standards. not only does the tune start out with, and ultimately soar on,
(gasp!) electric guitars, but pink's background vocal delivers the kind of edge
and muscle that amy ray should risk more often. even though "gate" is an r.i.p.
to a punk-rock movement that the girls seem to glance from afar, it doesn't
detract from the notion that they can indeed rock when properly motivated. when
you have pink, why hold back?

ditto carlile's contribution to the closing song, "last tears." her vocals fit
right in on the harmonies and on their own, but don't necessarily bring much new
to the table. "i'm gonna rack my mind one last time until i cannot think/i'm
gonna dip into your memory and take a good stiff drink," ray sings. "and when
i'm drunk on the last drop of sadness about how we went wrong/i'm gonna play
this song... ."

infoindigo girls play the tabernacle thurs.-fri., oct. 5-6. $30-$35. 8 p.m. 152
luckie st. 404-294-6400. www.livenation.com.
