August 18 [10:00 EDT] -- Bonnie Raitt will team up with the Indigo Girls in Washington to help the duo raise awareness about nuclear waste disposal.
The concert at Warner Theater on September 24 is part of the Girls' Honor The Earth tour, which hopes to focus attention on what the singers see as the unfair use of Native American land for nuclear waste storage.
With a top ten album under their belts, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers are taking their acoustic show to four Native American communities among the 17 stops on the tour, which kicks off September 7.
