We'll have to wait until 2010 to see if Lilith Fair makes it to these parts, but in the meantime, Tobacco Road is putting out the call for its third annual November celebration of all things XX-chromosomed, Femme Fest. The Miami venue is currently taking submissions to stack its lineup, so those interested should send a bio, picture, contact, website, and MP3 to email@example.com. The event is also open to grrrly artists and vendors. Past participants have included Ex Norwegian, the State Of, and Astari Nite, all good choices. In addition, this year I'd like to see Fleez (Elyse Perez is fierce), Daphna Rose, Zombies! Organize!!, Bonnie Riot, among others. Who would you like to see play Femme Fest? Share below.

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.
