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


very comparable show to the night before.  maybe a notch better.   that means
not one of their greatest, but a truly wonderful show.

[...]


brandi carlile was great again, winning over yet another crowd of  people.  
she's gonna be big.  oh, and both nights, a&e came out  for one song.

[...]

on to the show...

a - yield.  worked for me as an opener.  felt like amy was  singing right to
me for the whole song.  i wonder if it was true or a  projection.  could be
either, i suppose, but since i only felt that way  during this song, that she's
always seen me really connect to, it could be  true.  

e - hammer and a nail.  always fun to hear it, but given a choice, i'd  pick
both watershed and 10k wars from nis over h&n.

a - jonas and ezekial.  score!  i had noticed they'd been doing  it
occasionally.  definitely the highlight of the show for me.  

e - pendulum swinger.  crowd was digging it tonight.  

a - dairy queen.  i'm in alignment with amy's recent year choices of  yield
and become you, but i can't say i've been terribly thrilled by the regular  
presence of dq or oz.  that said, it was a good performance.  just my  opinion.

e - fill it up again.  a strong rendition.  the crowd was  diggin'.

a - three county highway.  they did this one last summer at chautauqua  
before the album came out.  it's ok, but not a favorite of mine.

e - lay my head down.  glad they played this one tonight.  i  bolted outside
to snuggle with my sweetie.  

a - heartache for everyone.  peppy, again.  good family  time.  

e - hope again w/ bc.  again, it was quite lovely, but not a  great live
track.  said goodnight to the family and headed back  inside.

a - world falls w/ bc.  hot damn!  love that song.  one of  my favorites.

dylan - don't think twice, it's alright w/ bc.  not great,  but good.  they
dug it.

a - new solo song.  (i had noticed that she didn't do a solo slot the  night
before.)  not sure of the title, but blackest boots and whitest skin  was part
of the refrain.

e - get out the map.  not much to say.  

a - shame on you.  also not much to say.

e - ghost.  another hot damn!  the crowd was mesmerized.  it  was a
particularly good performance, particularly the last 1/3 or so.   afterwards,
emily
mimed throwing up to illustrate the song.  amy added that  it was one of her
favorite songs.

a - kid fears w/ bc and josh, her cellist.  

[...]

e - closer to fine w/ bc.  

encore break

e - last tears w/ bc.  it was very good.  tough live song, but  quite
powerful.

a - tried to be true.  loved it, again.  i played the missing  drums on the
stage.  

a - rock and roll heaven's gate.  kicked ass, again.  felt good  to rock out
a bit.  i miss the band.  i miss the band.  i miss  the band.

e - galileo w/ bc.  i really, really liked having someone singing  jackson's
part.  i sing it every time, and always feel so alone.

[...]

btw, they are both looking really well, which is nice to see.  it's  kind of
interesting to see someone a few times every year or two over almost 20  
years.  i found myself marvelling at how much they look like they did back  in
'92
(before amy chopped her hair).  

oh, and during the show, emily had on jeans and t-shirt that said, "dont  
ruin this with words."  amy had on tight fitting striped pants that looked  
great
on her.  

i'm grateful that almost 20 years later, they're still together playing  this
great music.  next to pete townshend, there's nobody in the world i'd  rather
see up on stage with an acoustic guitar.  

ok.  back to work.
