Maybe Next Year Women Below The Mason-Dixon Line: Lilith Kills 10 Dates

It breaks my heart to report that 10 dates of the recently revived Rockstar Energy Drink Lilith Fair (oh wait, I am sorry, Rockstar does not sponsor Lilith, that’s Mayhem) have been cancelled.  I could attempt to write some jokes (like the failed Rockstar Energy Drink one you just read), or I could let Mr. Johnny Firecloud from Antiquiet.com share his thoughts on the once ground breaking chick-fest.

Oh, and for the record, my personal take is that folks are sick of seeing those Sarah McLachlan animal abuse ads on VH1, thus not going to the Vans Lilith Fair (damn, that corporate sponsor joke failed again) this summer.
