A thin Lilith Fair shakes down at Sandstone
Though it was one of the most successful package tours of
the late ’90s, 2010 hasn’t been especially kind to Lilith Fair so far. After an
11-year-break, Sarah McLachlan’s festival devoted to women in music has encountered trouble on the summer concert circuit, resulting in multiple canceled dates and
artists, like Norah Jones and Kelly Clarkson. (Clarkson’s dropout stung especially: Kansas City’s Lilith
date was meant to feature the pop princess as a headliner, and we were sadly disappointed.)
Regardless, a strong line-up drew a thin — but stubborn — crowd of fans to Sandstone last night.
