Longing for Lilith

So, you are still pining for the Lilith Fair. Every time a Sarah McLachlan song comes on in the car, you get nostalgic for the endless tables and booths touting feminist and pseudofeminist causes. You miss the swaying to acoustic womanly warblings; the Jewel sightings in the audience; the warm, fuzzy feelings of sisterhood; and even the occasional accusation of lesbianism. Maybe you even have a yen for female puns. Take a deep breath, eat a Luna Bar, and relax. The Sirens & Strings: An Acou-chix Experience is here to satisfy all your Lilith-type desires. DEKKA Fashion Art and Music Café (139 NE First Ave., Hallandale) is claiming it will make “herstory” with its lineup of “girls with guitars” Friday, June 17, at 7:30 p.m. (We said there’d be puns.) Local “singirls” include Shira Abergel, Jess Glison, and Brie Goldsobel. Special readings will also be given by local poetesses Jeanine Petro and Katie Wirsing. The suggested donation to attend is $10. Call 954-673-5124, or email [email protected]

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
