zootunes kicks off on a rousing note with indigo girls, carlile

special to the p-i


the skies were gloomy sunday and the headliner, the female-friendly indigo
girls, didn't seem an obvious father's day booking. nonetheless, the 24th season
of zootunes got off to a rousing start, an intermittent light rain only slightly
dampening the enthusiasm of a crowd that long ago had sold out the woodland park
zoo meadow.


celebrating two decades of recording together, the folk-rock indigo girls -- the
blue-jeaned emily saliers looked quite the folkie, while amy ray took the rocker
role in black leather pants and a t-shirt that read, "i've been to graceland" --
used their trademark harmonies and an ever-changing set of acoustic guitars, as
well as mandolins and a banjo, to demonstrate the "power of two."


sunday, the indigos were even more empowered, as brandi carlile, the maple
valley singer who has been touring with the duo that inspired her, lent her
impressive voice to several songs. (in a recent interview, ray recalled meeting
carlile for the first time at a performance at the sonic boom record store on
capitol hill. "i love her, as a person and a songwriter and a performer," ray
said.)


with a zootunes show of her own next week, carlile ceded her opening slot to
enjoyably quirky singer thao nguyen, who came across as a more animated cat
power, and her three-man band, the get down stay down. but carlile joined in on
saliers' delicately sad "last tears," as she had on the indigos' current album,
"despite our differences." later, saliers and ray harmonized on carlile's patsy
cline-mining "cannonball," featured on carlile's latest, "the story."


carlile also took over michael stipe's original role in the three-part round of
"kid fears," while the trio's most telling collaboration was a quickly worked-up
version of bob dylan's "don't think twice, it's alright."


the topical spirit of dylan's early '60s protest songs lives on in the indigo
girls, who drove home the message on the likes of saliers' attractively strident
"pendulum swinger" and ray's harmonica-braced "become you." even in the upbeat
"shame on you," its sunny "la la la" chorus enhanced by the leis the indigos
received from their fans, ray found a moment to comment on the ongoing
immigration debate.
