girls mailing list at]

bon matin kind friends,
(i saw phish last night so "kind" has a new meaning today)

anyway, here's my wrap-up mini-review (long) on the roxy, now that we have a
set-list nailed down (minus that unknown song).

soy & then it's alright started the night & after two bands and a lot of
waiting they got the show groovin' right away.  but it wasn't until go
(problem child) that my indiglowin' began.  i realized suddenly "hey!  amy &
emily are singing for me!!!!!" during go, and it was just such a kick arce
song (my fave new amy).  emily just makes this song awesome even though amy
is the focal point of course.

eiiot was pretty - but it didn't have that very cool eriee-feeling that it
sometimes does and makes your little neck hairs stand up when she hits those
high notes at the end - but it was still amazing to hear emily belt this
song out.  gone again has an awesome feel to it - i think she mentioned
georgia and everyone went nutz, well briefly anyway.  gone again has such a
great little tempo goin' and the lyrics fit so well - it's great to see amy
puttin' together these great emily-esque tunes.

least complicated, galileo, & a little po2 really had the crowd going!  all
the parts where we got to sing (well, at least attempt to sing!) it was
awesome!!!  we got both of them smilin' everytime we were beltin' out some
lyrics.  i said to myself - "this ain't no lilith fair!  it's ig in
hotlanta!!!"  it made it feel like one big party / big happy family (or any
other little sayings you'd like :).

and also during gotm, at one point emily was looking at the people singing &
goin' crazy to her left and she had a big 'ol grin on - but right after that
came the line "why do we hurtle ourselves through every inch of time &
space..." and she reallllly belted that one out! - and especially hearing
the next mumbled (awesome) line by amy, (maybe standing on a corner...yada
yada) i heard a collective "ahhhhhhh... .(or maybe that was just my tummy

the sb soc was a little tame - it sort of ended abruptly with none of the
crazy amy strummin' that i was hopin' for. (maybe she wanted to give sulli a
guitar-stringing break once in a while?)  but love's recovery was the best!
it was sort of a surprise to me, but it was just soooooo beautiful and it
was just such a great change of pace with all the other rawkin' tunes.

thin line was great & so was that last song w/ dede vogt - and after they
finished up - i was definitely a happy clam goin' to bed that night!  and
the kingdom lay back down to sleep, preparing for the next feast that will
soon come its' way...  "bring us shrubberies!!!"  <...tangents...>

and the unknown song was decent - it just seemed a song w/out a chorus, or
without a structure to it - or maybe that's just because i'm unfamiliar w/
it.  but neuva, gone, & go are mucho bettero amy songs imho...

thanks for listening!

five generations running fast
these things will not pass
this debtor's blood runs in my veins
i can't change anything
i said no no no
