1985 was a magical year. It spawned the birth of Back to the Future, Nintendo, and Indigo Girls. Spanning multiple decades, highschool buds, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, are back at it with their 14th studio album. No, no- that’s not a typo. Fourteen! While the 80′s are most notable for their short-lived trends, Indigo Girls were determined to be more than just a one-hit wonder. Their newest album, Beauty Queen Sister, is a stunning compilation of the signature storytelling tunes that resonate with their fans.
Backing the evolutionary folk duo will be The Shadowboxers, who will also open the show. Their name implies that they are contenders in an old school sport (boxing), which seems to suit them very well. Heavily influenced by soul, blues, and rhythm, their pop tunes aim to span generations to come, like their headlining mentors, Indigo Girls.
This show will be an evolutionary journey to unite old and young alike. The Paramount Theatre is the perfect intimate setting to see said journey. It’s dark and historical- a place where you can lose yourself in music, be it from 30 years ago or present day. Get your tickets and spend your spooky Friday 13th with the legendary Indigo Girls.
