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

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
