OK, no homo times a million for admitting it, but this year’s Lilith Fair line-up looks almost one-quarter non-horrible:
Kelly Clarkson will soon take her pop anthems on the road as the latest artist to join the Lilith Fair. It was announced on Thursday (March 4) that Clarkson, The Bangles, The Go-Go’s, Dixie Chicks’ Emily Robison and Martie Maguire’s side project the Courtyard Hounds, Martina McBride and Suzanne Vega will be the latest ladies hitting the road for the female-focused festival.
They join previously announced acts like festival founder Sarah McLachlan as well as Ke$ha, Colbie Caillat, Tegan and Sara, Corinne Bailey Rae, Erykah Badu, Emmylou Harris, Metric, Jill Scott, La Roux and Loretta Lynn, to name a few.
Here we go!
Kelly Clarkson – hell yes
The Bangles – yes
The Go-Go’s – hell yes
Courtyard Hands – I don’t what it is, but no
Martina McBride – no
Suzanne Vega – sorta
Sarah McLachlan – I love “Building a Mystery” and “Sweet Surrender”; I would listen to those songs and leave before the line to exit the parking lot got too long
Ke$ha – better than any female folk singer
Colbie Caillat – I don’t know who she is, but no
Tegan and Sara – yes
Corinne Bailey Rae – nonono
Erykah Badu – no
Emmylou Harris – I think my friends like her, so I’ll refrain from commenting
Metric – At least they’re an actual rock band with a female singer
Jill Scott – that’s offensive
La Roux – I don’t who that is, but no
Loeretta Lynn – no
“to name a few” – I promise they’re all horrible
