Indigo Girls 

When: Fri., Aug. 6, 8 p.m. 2010
Lilith Fair was supposed to be the occasion of Indigo Girls’ next Nashville performance. Whatever the fact that Nashville and another stop or two on the festival tour were canceled says about the progress women have or haven’t made in popular music — or about the difficulty of reviving ’90s musical institutions — it’s fitting that the Indigos would find another way to play here. After all, guitar-wielding singer-songwriters Emily Saliers and Amy Ray are themselves folk-rock institutions — Saliers the more introspective of the two, and Ray with the greater punk affinities — who have kept the songs, albums and tours coming since the mid ’80s, and who gained notice for earnest acoustic songs like “Hammer and Nail” and “Galileo” long before Lilith got off the ground. Poseidon and the Bitter Bug was last year’s solid offering of new material, and late this June the Indigos released a double-disc live set, Staring Down the Brilliant Dream.
