girls mailing list at]

hey all,
i'll begin w/my usual disclaimer--i'm on digest, so sorry if i'm repeating.
it was quite a night in cleveland.  didn't arrive from columbus until
after 7, which totally panicked me, but still managed to head up the side
and end up just one person from the stage on amy's side.  great view.
looked like my usual dork self at ig shows--kept asking "are you on the
list?" and getting those totally uncomprehending stares.  anyway, first the
set list, from one of their copies (semi-colons between song titles, stuff
in parenthesis my comments and who was fronting):

roll the dice (a, e and jane s vox); way below the radio (lisa g vox/piano,
a, e background); power of two rocked!!! (a, e, and lourdes p, who was
fabulous); love is everything (jane s,  lisa g,  a & e); cimarron (a & ??);
tengo la vida (lourdes, jane s, a & e--amy was totally into this, she was
so cute playing to lourdes, who she obviously loves. one of my favs of the
night, but the folks around me would not shut up.) chisel (was this the
ultra feedback song?); go (rocked a & e front);
wood floors (lisa g vox/piano, e background--beautiful); pale light (no, i
think *this* was the ultra feedback song, where jane s. looked way
uncomfortable, while jean and josephine rocked in their own little worlds);
pullin' a cloud (a & e); jean smith accappela (set list has a question
mark--umm, something about covered bridges, jack daniels for bfast...she
scared me.  she was wasted and kept holding out her bass? guitar?? for
people around me to touch, which they really didn't want to. night got a
little weird w/jean, which amy and others obviously felt); vestigos
(lourdes, a & e background--spanish love song); soon to be nothing (new e
song, loved it, missed a's harmony, but jean smith almost redeemed herself
w/her cool spoken world); under your skin (a, e, jane backup vox, luscious
jackson song, the girls were laughing at themselves, fun); midnight train
to georgia (jane, gail--wow, not only is she stunning, but can this girl
sing!!!, and e all took a verse, they all did the funniest train
sound/motion--wooo hooo)  encore:fisherman (jane s. was magical, really
worked the crowd, a & e background);
faye tucker (a, of course.. my first time hearing this song, umm, i'm gonna
commit list sacrilege by saying i wasn't that fond of it); ziggy stardust
(gail main vocals, everybody joined in, rocked!)

this was the 3rd night of suffragette and you could tell, as folks said
about the other reviews, they were still getting it together.  a and e
seemed to be having a fabulous time, which is always fun to watch.  a mixed
bag, imo, some of the songs were amazing and some weren't my thing.  it was
kind like watching a compilation cd being made. :-)  lourdes perez lit up
the stage and was the most fun to watch 'cause amy got so cute playing
w/her.  the crowd, though, wasn't very respectful to her or any of the
other folks who played more mellow songs.  the girls agreed 'cause toward
the end emily, while laughing, said to the crowd: "thanks for
listening...sorta."  still, the overall night was great, even when things
didn't work quite as planned, like when they couldn't learn the strumming
pattern for "fisherman".  looking forward to cincinnati!

"the best thing you've ever done for me is to help me take my life less
seriously, it's only life afterall."--emily saliers
