I wouldn’t see the Indigo Girls if someone paid me. I went to a concert in Buckhead last year, waited 3 and a half hrs once let in the door and they still were not on stage. We had a babysitter and my partner and I decided to leave and enjoy what was left of our evening instead of battling all the roadies pushing and shoving everyone near the stage, not knowing when they would “grace” everyone’s presence. We had a nice quiet dinner downtown and decided never again to go to one of their shows. While their music is wonderful, their etiquette towards their fans is not. I was highly disappointed in them.

I went to see Steve Earle a few years ago. He played a few songs and then a summer storm rolled in. They sent everyone inside. After the storm had passed they came around and told us the show was canceled. I guess rain or shine means something else to them. I wouldn’t risk $50 on summer storms if I were you because it’s really rain or shine or whatever they decide – no refunds.
