St. Vincent+tUnE-YaRds+Basia Bulat
Why have Lilith Fair ticket sales been plummeting? Because in 2010, the real patchouli-scented sirens of the summer festival season are the oddball instrumentalists St. Vincent, tUnE-YaRds, and Basia Bulat. St. Vincent (a/k/a Annie Clark) is known for her dramatic love songs almost as much as her good looks, while Montreal solo artist tUnE-YaRds concocts seriously feral folk out of her "get people's attention or die" mantra. Acting her part, Basia Bulat might be the flaxen-haired perpetuator of the auto harp, but she remains more Johanna Newsom than Indigo Girl.
