subject: [ig-news] new opening act for april 24,25,26!!!

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

due to the unfortunate situation with michelle malone, the opening act had
to be changed for these three shows........however, you are all in for a
real treat!!!!!
i am incredibly pleased to announce that the opening act for this coming
weekend's shows at dartmouth, yale and dickinson will be shawn
mullins....with special guests julie clark and david patterson (former
lift) as part of his band.
shawn is an atlanta guy who is extremely talented.  whether he is solo or
backed by his full band, i'm sure you will love his stuff.  his new album
"soul's core" will make you a fan for life.
all you northeastern (former) lift fans come show your support for julie
and dave!

......can someone please email me (by wed. nite) and describe the venues
for each show and if the shows are general admission and any other
pertinent info. i might need to know....i know this has been posted before,
but i deleted the info. as i wasn't expecting to be attending these shows!

indigo girls, colvin map out politically active dates

the indigo girls will soon be making the rounds with a string of high-profile
politically active shows beginning this week when they share the bill with
shawn colvin.

the indigos will team up with colvin to play a voters for choice concert in
dallas on thursday to mark the 25 year anniversary of roe v. wade, the supreme
court ruling that gave women the right to choose to have abortions.

then, next monday the indigos will play the slam 2 show in new york city,
protesting philip morris tobacco's woman thing record label. they'll join
folksinger leslie nuchow, who organized last yearıs original "virginia slams"

finally on may 8, the indigos and shawn colvin will be in austin, texas to
play a benefit for mexico's zapatista rebels, who are also a favorite cause of
rage against the machine.

subject: [ig-news] the forthcoming lilith fair cd (from ice magazine)

[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the ecto
mailing list at]

ice magazine/april 1998/issue 133

<<two-disc lilith fair release features cream of the crop from last year's

boasting a who's who lineup of female artists and a powerful message of
distaff solidarity, last summer's lilith fair tour swept through the united
states and canada with all the emotion and excitement (if not necessarily the
rage) of a woman scorned.  on april 28, arista will release lilith fair:  a
celebration of women in music, a two-cd chronicle of that tour featuring
unreleased live performances by suzanne vega, paula cole, indigo girls, joan
osborne, emmylou harris, shawn colvin, victoria williams, lisa loeb, the
cardigans, dar williams, meredith brooks, abra moore, susanna hoffa and,
naturally, tour organizer sarah mclachlan.

"we actually started recording from the very first show," mclachlan's manager
and lilith fair co-producer terry mcbride tells ice.  "one day we would tape
the main stage, the next day we'd tape the second stage.  we tried to capture
all of the artists that would let us record them.  this was a history-making
tour, and we wanted to document it as a way of [raising] awareness and showing
what lilith is all about."

the track list for lilith fair:  suzanne vega - "rock in this pocket," abra
moore - "four-leaf clover," paula cole - "mississippi," - lhasa - "el
payande," sarah mclachlan - "building a mystery," indigo girls - "scooter
boys," autour de lucie - "sur tes pas," the cardigans - "benit," september 67
- - "the loneliness of the long distance runner," dar williams - "what do you
hear in the sound," tara maclean - "jordan," joan osborne - "ladder," emmylous
harris - "going back to harlem," meredith brooks - "wash my hands," patty
griffin - "cain," wild strawberries - "i don't want to think about it,"
susanna hoffs - "the eternal flame," shawn colvin - "trouble," young chen lamo
- - lama dorje chang," tracy bonham - "the one," wild colonials - "charm," lisa
loeb - "falling in love" and victoria williams - "periwinkle sky."

at press time, mcbride indicated that the indigo girls' contribution, "scooter
boys," wasn't a sure thing, although lilith fair will definitely include one
song by the duo.  also, the old irish folk song "water is wide" will appear on
the set, either by jewel/mclachlan/indigo girls or colvin/mclachlan/indigo
girls, depending on legal clearances.

as with all things lilith, mclachlan had a hand in compiling the cd project.
"sarah listened to everything on the ablum," mcbride says.  "i had her
sequence it, because i was way too close to it after hearing each song 40
different times.  i thought it was going to be a single album, but sarah said
it had to be a double album.  there were about 60 artists on the tour, and she
didn't think 12 was a good representation.  she also wanted to strike a
balance between developing and established artists.  so it's definitely got
sarah's stamp on it."

the package's graphic designer, john rummen, tells ice that the cover will
depict "the woman [figure] sarah drew for the lilith fair logo, but it'll be a
lot more textural.  for the inside of the booklet, we're getting photographs
from each artists, hopefully taken from the lilith shows, although sometimes
not.  the idea is to promote the live feel."  rummen also explained that
arista will be releasing a limited-edition version in an unusual 10-inch

[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo

okay, like everyone else, i've been checking the official music midtown
site about a million times a day waiting to see the schedule for the show,
but everytime the page just said "coming soon." bummer ...

but on a whim i checked out access atlanta and lo and behold, the
schedule is up!!!! the girls are on the 99x stage at 10:45, right after
paula cole. vonda shephard plays at the same time as paula, but on
a different stage (obviously .. duh cathy!) so maybe after her set
she'll wander over and join the girls!!! :)

anyway, you can see the whole schedule at

for those of you coming in from out of town, the site has all sorts of cool
stuff about atlanta that you may wanna check out!

cathy -- who's harboring an insane fantasy that the femmes will come out
early and join the girls for a rowdy rendition of blister in the sun! :)

edge's discoball guitar to be one of the auction items

u2, the boss on auction
block for online charity

the edge's disco-ball guitar and a collection of
pearl jam vinyl are among the items up for bid.

contributing editor randy reiss reports:

signed guitars from eddie van halen, u2, 311 and indigo
girls, autographed cds from fiona apple,
chumbawamba and celine dion, and even a chance to
be a roadie for teen-pop sensations hanson are among the
many music-related
items and opportunities up for grabs at an upcoming
online auction to benefit a
leukemia, cancer and aids research organization.

the auction, which raised $183,000 last year for the
t.j. martell foundation, also
includes an autographed vinyl album from bruce
springsteen, a collection of vinyl
from pearl jam, signed harmonicas from stevie wonder and
blues traveler frontman
john popper and a trip to meet the three tenors (luciano
pavarotti, placido
domingo and jose carreras) and watch them perform in

bidding on the items, which will take place
via the website

(, starts thursday and
ends may 7. items will be displayed on the
site with a brief
description, offering visitors a chance to
make a bid through the

"we asked a lot of people to help us bring
[the musicians] closer
to their fans," said michael reinert,
polygram records vice
president of business affairs and auction
co-chair, of the
organization's efforts to collect items to
auction off.

among the artists offering themselves to the
cause are teen-pop
sensations hanson, who are auctioning off
the opportunity to be
their roadie for a night. according to
reinert , aspiring
technicians who bid on the trip might be
"basically, it's a chance for a fan to go to a sound
check and a show and to hang
out with the band," he said. "they probably won't be
doing any of the sound."

the auction is also packed with autographed posters, cds
and equipment, all of
which reinert said were somehow connected with a major
artist. in particular,
though, he singled out the signed guitar donated by u2.
"it's a one-of-a-kind les
paul [guitar] that was custom built for the edge," he
said. noting that the guitar
closely resembles a disco ball and that it was used on
the band's highly produced
popmart tour, reinert said, "it's gotta be the most rare
instrument we have."

the t.j. martell foundation, formed in 1975, has held
numerous celebrity fund-
raising events in an effort to raise money for medical
research throughout the world.
according to the organization's official website, the
foundation has thus far raised
more than $110 million for that cause.
