The Bitches Are Back

When your girlfriend dragged you there in the late nineties, you marveled at Paula Cole's hairy pits and wondered if the Indigo Girls could beat you up. But, whatever—you got laid that night, so who cares? Well get ready, because Lilith Fair is back, baby.

When your girlfriend dragged you there in the late nineties, you marveled at Paula Cole's hairy pits and wondered if the Indigo Girls could beat you up. But, whatever—you got laid that night, so who cares? Well get ready, because Lilith Fair is back, baby. Coming in 2010 to a just-announced venue near you, this ladypalooza of E-Z listening will be empowering women across the land with an as-yet-undetermined lineup of chicks who (don't really) rock. Listen, there's nothing wrong with the Taylor Swifts and Kelly Clarksons of the world singing about boys and heartbreak and makeup and lesbian fantasies. But on a day when four of the top 10 albums on the charts are from female artists, are women really so underrepresented in mainstream music that they need their own festival to showcase their talent? And does Sarah McLachlan's "Angel" need to get pulled out of the musical gynecopia for another spin? The animal cruelty commercial was bad enough.
