zack de la rocha plans spitfire spoken word tour
kris novoselic, exene cevenkova, amy ray expected to join


fans wanting a more direct route to learning about their favorite
artists will have just that opportunity when the spitfire tour
comes to 15-20 major market college campuses in late summer and
fall.


co-conceived by rage against the machine's zack de la rocha, salt
lake city promoter jason farrell, and a group of friends over a
thanksgiving dinner, the spitfire tour is a spoken- word trek
where musicians, actors, and artists will discuss topical issues
of great importance to them. after the monologues, there will be
a one-hour question- and- answer session during which the
audience members will have a chance to speak directly with the
participants.


while the tour is still in the planning stages, artists who have
been confirmed include current sweet 75 (and former nirvana)
member krist novoselic, who will serve as the moderator at each
stop; mtv personality (and republican) kennedy; x's exene
cervenkova; the indigo girls' amy ray; and mighty mighty bosstones
frontman dicky barrett.


also expected on the tour, but not yet confirmed, are the always
outspoken jello biafra, ani difranco, public enemy's chuck d,
director michael moore (roger & me, the big one), and actor woody
harrelson with activist todd mccormick.


a representative for san francisco- based promotion company on
board entertainment, which is helping to put the excursion
together, says they expect it to hit "politically active college
campuses in major markets, like brown university or ucla... it
will be interesting to see which colleges want us."


in addition to the spoken word aspect, there will be video
presentations, djs spinning, and booths. the on board
entertainment spokesperson likened it to a "spoken- word
lollapalooza." the tour is expected to kick off at the end of
august and go through september, moving from the east coast to the
west coast.

hey guys...

article on lilith, and a pic of amy ray and sarah m.  the address is
www.rollingstone.com and then follow the lilith tabs. it's a review the
oregon show, and is actually quite favorable, unless you were natalie
merchant.  anyway, if you're interested, have a peek...


much love,

hey folks,


here is the excerpt from the rolling stone review of the kickoff
lilith fair show.  you can find the entire article at
http://www.rollingstone.com/sections/news/text/newsarticle.asp?afl=rsn&newsi

(no linebreak in the middle there, that's all on one line).

if mclachlan is the public face of lilith, the indigo girls' amy
ray and emily saliers are the tour's political heart. the atlanta,
georgia duo were clearly crowd favorites, and the group turned in
a strong set of hard folk with modern touches. backed by a band
that included the incomparable jerry marotta on drums, pedal steel
guitar and mandolin and jane scarpantoni on cello, saliers and ray
expanded their sound beyond the earnest everly sisters harmonies
of their albums. they were also the first band of the night to
reach out and embrace the other bands on the bill, calling
mclachlan and members of k's choice to sing on a rousing cover of
neil young's "rocking in the free world."
