Postponed from last season due to the musicians' strike (you wouldn't expect the Indigo Girls to cross a picket line, now would you?), the piece was a high-energy celebration of youth, angst and euphoria. Emily Saliers' "Ghost" was paired with a sensual, dramatic performance that fleshed out that mournful tune's tale of lost love, while Amy Ray's "Scooter Boys" provided a thrilling backdrop for a testosterone-rich display of graceful athleticism.
It was a memorable night that cast Atlanta in its very best light. If a venerable arts institution and a pair of ambassadors from the local music scene can come together and create magic, anything is possible.
