Last Monday I had the privilege of seeing the Indigo girls at the Denver Botanic Gardens (for the third time). The outdoor venue is a wonderful place to see and hear a concert on a summer evening. Made even more enjoyable by the garden’s BYOB policy. This was our bottle.
The opener was Bitch and Ferron who sang some songs from Ferron’s new album Boulder and some Bitch songs too. Ferron was dark and brooding. I wish the crowd was a bit more quiet so we could have heard her better. Bitch was charming, and her highlight was a family sing-along of ‘don’t do crystal’.
Don’t do crystal
Don’t do boys
Don’t do boys
Who do crystal
Don’t do crystal
The Indigo Girls were stellar as usual. We thin Emily may have had a bit of a cold, but there were only a few songs that you could tell something was different.
During the set, the Amy and Emily took a break and let a local Denver musician named Matt Morris come up and sing one song. He also came up with Bitch and Ferron and joined them for Closer To Fine (video below).

i am SIGNED!! fo sho, fo real. with the music business the way it is right now, ben, my management, my whole team and i decided that we should take this all the way. after doing the entire album independently, why hand it over to The Man in the end? so, ben created a record label, FNR records. WWWWWWOOOOOOOOOTTTT!
EDIT: I looked back at the blog entry cited above on 5/2, and look what else I found!
p.p.s-for all of you ben moody fans……holy CCCCCRAP you guys are in for a treat. ben has been working on his album for the last million years on and off, but since february he’s really been working hard. it’s really happening, so just give it a little bit more time. PLUS i feel super special because michael tait and i arranged all the background vocals!! yeah!
Hello from Nine Inch Nails.
We’re very proud to present a new collection of instrumental music, Ghosts I-IV. Almost two hours of music recorded over an intense ten week period last fall, Ghosts I-IV sprawls Nine Inch Nails across a variety of new terrain.
Now that we’re no longer constrained by a record label, we’ve decided to personally upload Ghosts I, the first of the four volumes, to various torrent sites, because we believe BitTorrent is a revolutionary digital distribution method, and we believe in finding ways to utilize new technologies instead of fighting them.
We encourage you to share the music of Ghosts I with your friends, post it on your website, play it on your podcast, use it for video projects, etc. It’s licensed for all non-commercial use under Creative Commons.
We’ve also made a 40 page PDF book to accompany the album. If you’d like to download it for free, visit http://ghosts.nin.com/main/pdf
Ghosts I is the first part of the 36 track collection Ghosts I-IV. Undoubtedly you’ll be able to find the complete collection on the same torrent network you found this file, but if you’re interested in the release, we encourage you to check it out at ghosts.nin.com, where the complete Ghosts I-IV is available directly from us in a variety of DRM-free digital formats, including FLAC lossless, for only $5. You can also order it on CD, or as a deluxe package with multitrack audio files, high definition audio on Blu-ray disc, and a large hard-bound book.
We genuinely appreciate your support, and hope you enjoy the new music. Thanks for listening.
