Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Indigo Girls Live

The Indigo Girls, joined by Common Rotation, performed "Closer To Fine" at the Fillmore, San Francisco, July 2009. The lyrics suggest that the more one remains open to new perspectives, "The closer I am to fine."

To me The Indigo Girls were always a band that was trying a little too hard to prove it is relevant. "Closer to Fine" has been somewhat overplayed on college type radio stations. Not to say that it isn't a good song - it is - but I've never given the girls enough of a chance to prove me wrong about them because, frankly, this is the only song of theirs that I hear consistently. On the other hand this live version is more "honest" than the one on the disk; and with honesty comes strength.

If this one is more honest, is it closer to fine?
