Set Times:

On April 30, Indigo Girls will headline a benefit concert at Variety Playhouse for El Refugio featuring special guest Matt Nathanson and opener Chastity Brown. El Refugio visits immigrants detained by ICE and asylum seekers who are held at Stewart Detention Center in Lumpkin, GA, welcomes the families of those detained to their comforting hospitality house, and educates hundreds of people a year on the U.S. immigration and detention system. In December, El Refugio was gifted a new home by Samantha Bee in her TBS program Full Frontal. The purpose of this benefit will raise funds for continued renovation of the new home, and for the development of a post-release program. 100% of the net proceeds for the benefit will go directly to El Refugio.

Indigo Girls

Twenty years after they began releasing records as the Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have politely declined the opportunity to slow down with age. With a legacy of releases and countless U.S. and international tours behind them, the Indigo Girls have forged their own way in the music business. Selling over 14 million records, they are still going strong. Amy & Emily are the only duo with top 40 titles on the Billboard 200 in the '80s, '90s, '00s and '10s. The power of unity, both in music and in life, has been an Indigo Girls calling card ever since they burst into the spotlight with their 1989 self-titled breakout album. Since then, the band has racked up a slew of Gold and Platinum records, taken home a coveted GRAMMY Award, and earned the respect of high profile peers and collaborated from Michael Stipe to Joan Baez. NPR’s Mountain Stage called the group “one of the finest folk duos of all time” while Rolling Stone said “they personify what happens when two distinct sensibilities, voices, and worldviews come together to create something transcendentally its own.”

Matt Nathanson

Based in San Francisco, Matt Nathanson has evolved into one of the most applauded songwriters and engaging performers on the music scene today. His 2007 album, Some Mad Hope, yielded his breakthrough multi -platinumhit "Come on Get Higher.” His 2013 release, Last of The Great Pretenders, debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top 200 while hitting #1 on iTunes' Alternative Albums chart. Nathanson's latest album is Sings His Sad Heart. The album comes off the heels of Nathanson’s Def Leppard approved cover album of their iconic Pyromania called Pyromattia which shot to #1 on iTunes Alternative chart upon its release. Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott called the album “an amazing reinterpretation” with “heart & soul.”
