Indigo Girls, Shadowboxers 

When: Fri., Oct. 19, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $35-$55

Salt and pepper, sugar and spice: We like our mismatched buddies, and the pairing of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers possesses its own rock/folk duality. This yin-yang has helped the Indigo Girls remain vibrant. Of course, it's less about the sound—which still trends toward midtempo folk and rock—than the sweet harmonies and thoughtful lyrics. Their political persuasions are well known, but like most songwriters, they prefer to speak of life's verities. Just listen to them sing "hang on tight" on the day-at-a-time title track from 2011's Beauty Queen Sister. Grace Potter's a nice talent, but the Indigo Girls are pros with a proven methodology. With The Shadowbusters. —Chris Parker
