Lilith Fair 2010

Something I just discovered: LILITH FAIR IS BACK, BITCHES! Yeah, I'm a little late on the uptake, but I'm okay with that.

It was a music festival celebrating women in music back in the late '90s. Think, Sarah McLachlan, Lisa Loeb, Fiona Apple, Indigo Girls, Sheryl Crow, and other female musicians and bands who aren't really relevant to music today.

As I grew up on Tori Amos and Fiona Apple and other female-led acts, I am ridiculously excited for this event. And they're coming to Chicago! And Philadelphia, for those of you from Pennsylvania. The majority, I'd guess.

I'd love it if Jonatha Brooke, Tegan and Sara, and Beth Hart show up. Who do you hope plays at Lilith Fair 2010? Do you think the Spice Girls will reunite (again) to play there?

  2. This festival will be AMAZING. I'd kill to see it.

    But only if they don't recycle acts from +10 years ago. (Has Sarah McLachlan done anything in the last decade? No? Well...)

  5. mmorbo, I haven't heard the new t&s album yet. have you? is it any good? should I bother with it?

    I 100% looove your list Brittany. Flo/Fiona/SHIRLEYYYYYY/Sia/Annie/Nellie (love her!)/and maybe Elly Jackson solo. But really I'd love any of them. This has the potential to be AMAZING. Females in music have progressed LIGHT YEARS since the last time Lilith Fair was around...

  6. mmh I don't really like the new album (just the last song), I think I can now detox.

    add Basia Bulat and Scout Niblett to the list (Mirah, Shannon Wright, Jenny Owen Youngs would be nice too) and I'll gladly come swimming through the Pacific
