Tomorrow: Amy Ray @ EJ Thomas Hall

I hate to say it, but Amy has always been my favorite Indigo Girl.  Her songwriting, her politics, her “punk” has always been appreciated.  I was surprised to see her booked at Akron’s EJ Thomas Hall, but hopefully it’ll be the same setup as the Michelle Malone show I saw back there in 2016.  Check out her new video and Scene article below.


"For more than 30 years, the Indigo Girls have been examining differences. ‘What separates me from you,’ asks singer-guitarist Amy Ray in ‘Tried to Be True,’ a track from the group’s 1989 self-titled major label debut. The pair have been longtime advocates, using their songwriting as a platform to explore a variety of topics and shine a light on different perspectives and important commentary.

Holler, the recently released solo album from Ray, finds the veteran artist continuing to dissect the world around her. ‘Sure Feels Good Anyway,’ which leads off the record, grapples with the divide that sometimes exists right outside of the front door for Ray in her hometown of Dahlonega, GA."

Opening will be Chastity Brown.  A new name for me, but I’m liking everything I’m seeing so far.
