Everyone Here Knows How to Cry: A Lilith Fair Cover Night
Sep 4 @ 8:30 pm

The Honeymoon and your favorite sisterwives (JMurph & KRiz) present “Everyone Here Knows How to Cry: A Lilith Fair Cover Night!”

That’s right, we want to reenact the world’s most beloved feminist folk music festival. We want YOU, Bellingham musicians, to reveal your inner Indigo Girl and perform renditions of your favorite Lilith Fair hit. If you’re not really into ankh-wearing and granola-eating yoni rock, there is still a place for you!

Did you know that there were a large variety of artists who played at Lilith Fair like Cibo Matto, Missy Elliot, Erykah Badu and Luscious Jackson (Jessyca knows because she went all three years). For the record, all genders are encouraged to participate! Whether or not you have a song to play, we hope you join us for this magical night of mystery and moon worship!

The Rules:
1. Songs must be by artists that performed at the original 1997-1999 Lilith Fair festivals.

2. Songs must be ones that artist could have reasonably played during their set (so, for example, Missy Elliot’s “The Rain” is appropriate because it came out in 1997, but “Work It” is not because it was released in 2002; get it?)

3. Artists may pick two to three songs and should stick to songs of average length (3-4 minutes)

4. Artists must email selections to the following address: jessymurphy@gmail.com. Don’t just tell one of us in person; verbal contracts are not valid in the state of Washington. You will receive confirmation about your song selection and be allowed to chose different song(s) if your selections have already been reserved. It’s first come, first serve! So, act fast!! We’ll accept submissions up until the night before the show (that’s 11:59pm August 13th, 2015).

Check here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lilith_Fair) for an extensive list of Lilith Fair artists (Pro Tip: most of the artists’ discographies are also on Wikipedia if you follow the links).

Shawnee Kilgore
Sep 5 @ 8:30 am

“One of the year’s finest albums,” wrote Tom Buckley, editor of Texas Music Magazine. “With a compelling voice at once uplifting and heartbreaking, delicate and wounded, and with melodies dextrous and irresistible, Kilgore has, in one bold move, established herself as an important presence in folk music. This is a gorgeously crafted work.”
