Rachel Goodrich should probably play at Lilith Fair
​Lilith Fair's August 10 tour stop at Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach features Gossip, Corinne Bailey Rae, Norah Jones, Court Yard Hounds, Sia, Sarah McLachlan, Martina McBride, the Rescues, Ceci Bastida, Katzenjammer, and the winner of a local talent competition judged by fans.

Artists must submit their finest original song to the Lilith Local Talent Search by May 22 to get a shot, and everyone attending the concert will want to weigh in at the same spot.

Now, New Times Broward-Palm Beach is making a subtle suggestion that Rachel Goodrich and her ukelele would make for a good act to represent us locally, but there are plenty of others who can set the tone in different ways. Local metal outfit BitchFire, the punk fury of Flees, or electro-goths Kill Miss Pretty all would leave a lasting statement and probably singe even a part-time punk like Norah Jones' eyebrows.

We got the ball rolling, now fill up that comments section with other female-fronted acts worthy to join the Lilith bill.

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 would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
