1200 Curfews is a live album by the Indigo Girls, released in 1995.

Most of the recordings come from their 1994-95 tour, with scattered earlier performances.

The liner notes joke about the inclusion of the song "Land of Canaan". The song had already appeared (in different recordings each time) on their 1985 EP, their 1987 debut album Strange Fire, and their 1989 eponymous second album.
