More than 30 years since their first performance together as high schoolers in Decatur, Georgia, Indigo Girls are still captivating audiences with timeless classics like “Crazy Game,” and “Closer to Fine.” Since releasing their breakout self-titled LP in 1989, the folk rock duo have won a Grammy, sold millions of copies of more than a dozen LPs, and established a long track record of political activism for indigenous, environmental, and LGBT causes. This year they’ll finally get to tour in support of their 15th studio album Look Long, released last May. They’re joined by the fiercely independent alt-folk-rocker Ani Defranco, who has released every one of her 19 solo studio albums on her own Righteous Babe label. Her unique brand of folk melds punk, funk, hip hop and jazz stylings with the spirit of activist folk heroes like Woody Guthrie; much like the Indigo Girls, she’s supported various progressive causes throughout her career.
