How two Atlanta teenagers got starring roles in Amy Ray’s “Subway” music video
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.
A half-century of LGBTQ+ milestones in Atlanta

Indigo Girl Amy Ray reflects on Sears Toughskins, previews Party at Ponce, “Beauty Queen Sister”
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."
Indigo Girls, Shawn Mullins, Francine Reed to perform at Party at Ponce benefit
Three days before their 14th studio album "Beauty Queen Sister" hits stores this fall, Atlanta acoustic duo Indigo Girls will preview some of the project's 13 brand new compositions at the first-ever Party at Ponce fundraiser. Amy Ray and Emily Saliers will headline an evening of music at the city's forthcoming Ponce City Market transformation of the old City Hall East building on Ponce de Leon Avenue. The evening will benefit the Atlanta BeltLine and Georgia Organics. The benefit marks the final public event at the two million square foot brick structure before developer Jamestown Properties begins its massive mixed used redevelopment project this fall. And yes, due to demand from fascinated Atlantans who have never stepped foot inside the massive facility, Intel has learned that guided tours will be held for attendees throughout the night.
