Eighteen years old and a senior at Paul Duke STEM High School, Sarah Jane Von Hagen has plenty in common with the Indigo Girls, not least her striking resemblance to a young Amy Ray—a role Von Hagen recently found herself playing, opposite the real, adult Amy Ray, in a music video for Ray’s new single, “Subway.” Von Hagen’s friend Iris Rubin costarred as young Amy Ray’s girlfriend.
Four days before the official release of their 14th studio album, "Beauty Queen Sister," the Indigo Girls will debut selections from the project Saturday night as they headline Party at Ponce, the kick off for the planned multi-million dollar Ponce City Market renovation of the massive City Hall East location and former Sears & Roebuck building on Ponce de Leon Avenue. The evening serves as a benefit for the city's Atlanta Beltline Partnership and Georgia Organics. And if we're really lucky, Indigo Girl Amy Ray may take the stage in a pair of green Toughskins jeans, her preferred hue from childhood. In addition to the popular brand of Sears jungle gym-proof denim, Ray's mother worked there as a teenager and the songwriter's very first acoustic guitar and amp also came from Sears. "It's such a great building," she recalls. "My Dad used to take me there to pick up our catalog orders. Every Christmas, we got our Sears Wishbook there too! That was an extremely big deal at the time. I have a real emotional attachment to that building. We're thrilled to be a part of this benefit."
