review/music lilith fair succeeds
beyond the music


reuters
29-jun-98
by troy j. augusto
lilith fair (rose bowl; 40,000 capacity $39.50 top) pasadena, calif.
(variety) - mother nature couldn't have been kinder to the
near-sellout crowd gathered at the rose bowl saturday for the l.a.
date of this year's second lilith fair tour, the festival where
females rule the day.


<snip>


the rocking hourlong set by indigo girls, while the sun went down, was
the all-star spot in the program. guests included actress ellen
degeneres and blues traveler's john popper, who blew some mean harp;
and second-stage musicians tara mclean and billie myers joined the
band.


but it was emily salier's sharp guitar play, including a nifty
acoustic slide portion, that stole the set.


<snip>


....
there was more to the article than this, but i thought i'd just share
the igc part.

august 1998 -- vibe


lilith fair fantasy mudwrestling


this summer, folk rocker sarah mclachlan has pulled together more than 60 of
the world's top female pop acts for the second annual lilith fair - 57
concert dates of the biggest rotating lineup, traveling festival tour ever
assembled.  with a number of women-oriented charities dispensing literature,
the message will be there.  and of course, the music'll be great.  but the
real excitement will come during the nightly after-parties that have been
arranged at local bars and gymnasiums in each city stop.  there, amid the
curses and catcalls of sweaty beer drinkers, the tour's headliners are set
to engage in a hallowed feminist ritual: mudwrestling.


matchup:  indigo girls (amy ray and emily saliers) vs. missy "misdemeanor"
elliott
indigos' strengths:  they've been to the doctor.  they've been to the
mountain.  tag-team strategy preserves energy and keeps opponents off guard.
indigos' weaknesses:  slathered in lubricant, grappling female hardbodies,
amy and em tend to lose focus.
missy's strengths:  comes off the top rope like jimmy "superfly" snuka.
missy's weaknesses:  can't stand the rain.  doesn't like mud so much either.
predicted victor:  missy
hits 'em wit' da ha.  hits 'em wit da hee.  slams an elbow into ray's
larynx.  drives her knee into saliers' chin.


matchup:  lauryn hill vs. erykah badu
lauryn's strengths: lightening-quick jab.  indefensible right cross.  can
rap and sing.
lauryn's weaknesses: adversaries can strum her pain with their fingers.
badu's strenths: trademark "badu back-breaker" devastating to opponents
spinal column.  hides brass knuckles in headwrap.
badu's weaknesses: kinda mellow for the mudwrestler....
predicted victor: lauryn
the fugee fighting machine will kill badu...softly, but, nevertheless,
decisively.


matchup: sheryl crow vs. sinead o'connor
crow's strengths:  through a rigorous pretour weight-training regimen (and,
reportedly, heavy steroid usage), crow had bulked up to 265 pounds of
battle-ready muscle.
crow's weaknesses:  according to song "if it makes you happy," crow "still
gets high." wrestling is serious business.  the mud pit is no place for
impaired sense perception.
sinead's strengths:  piercing banshee wail can shatter opponents' eardrums.
master of the figure-four leglock.
sinead's weaknesses:  cried in "nothing compares 2 u" video - a sure sign of
weakness.
predicted victor: crow
god, still upset over the pope thing on saturday night live, will not let
sinead win anything.


matchup: queen latifah vs. sarah mclachlan
latifah's strengths: packs heat.
latifah's weaknesses: covered in mud, the queen will lose some of her
intimidating regal air.
mclachlan's strengths: held the iafmw (international association of female
mudwrestling) belt from 1994 to 1997.  will scratch, pull hair, and cheat to
win.
mclachlan's weaknesses: skin is not bulletproof.  will be wearing only a bikini.
predicted victor: latifah
bla-ow! bla-ow! bla-ow! who you calling a bitch?!!
