Amy: Lilith Fair is fast approaching and Jessica tells us sales are down. Does that mean something about female musicians?
KL: It means everyone is broke.
Julia: I dunno, the tickets are really cheap.
Jessica: There are tons of other music festivals that seem to be doing well.
Amy: Yeah, in Chicago, Pitchfork is happening the same weekend. That will sell out for sure.
KL: I think it's at the same time as michigan?
Jessica: Years ago when I went to Lillith Fair it was an important part of my development as a radical feminist lesbian
Julia: I went every single year, all three years it ran.
Amy: Same. So will you go this year?
Jessica: But personally, I don't need those female identified spaces in the same way anymore.

Julia: No, it's right before my vacay week so I'm not planning on going this time. I might change my mind depending on how broke my ass is.

KL: Mary J Blige? I'm dying.

Jessica: Unless there is actually a Vagina onstage singing... that would be cool.
Amy: Just because we might not, it's just as important for some women as it once was for us.
Jessica: is it?
Amy: I think so; we live in an evolved bubble.
KL: meaning what? that we're evolved so we don’t need women-only spaces anymore? I just like being able to romp around naked and not dealing with nasty guys and their commentary. p.s. I just bragged about getting catcalled.
Jessica: Wait, folks get naked at Lillith?
Julia: Nobody gets naked at Lilith.
I spy two men and they're shouting, "Play Free Bird!"
Jessica: I'm not equating Lillith with a woman only space, I'm saying as a category for marketing music...
Amy: I think it's a venue for female-identified musicians to get spotlight that they might not
