Lilith Fair is back, and it's coming here - sortof - at least to West Palm Beach's Cruzan Amphitheater. (Can someone garnish some stimulus funds and come up with a way to easily get in and out of that place?). Anyways, it looks kinda cool - 80 acts, in an incredible range of talent, styles and generations. I'm feeling kinda neutral about the line-up in WPB, which includes Sarah McLachlan (the headliner at every LF show), Norah Jones (her latest album is gorg), Corrine Bailey Rae, Sia, Gossip, Ceci Bastida, The Rescues, Court Yard Hounds and Katzenjammer. I coulda gone for the Gogo's, Jill Scott, Emmylou Harris, Loretta Lynn, Ximena Sarinana, Chairlift, Metric...but still... Tickets go on sale on Sat Mar. 27 at www.livenation.com or www.lilithfair.com.
Oh - and one local band, to be chosen for each location. Go to ourstage.com/go/lilith to find out how to apply. Basically, all daughters of Eve (or Wicca, or otherwise gender-endowed) singer-songwriters or bandleading singers have until midnight of May 22nd to upload a song. Fifteen min max, and radio-ready please. Go!
