Final Raleigh Lilith performers add indie credibility

The final names for Raleigh's date on the newly revamped Lilith Fair have been announced and they add a little "indie" credibility to the more mainstream artists we brought you last week (Sarah McLachlan, Kelly Clarkson, Erykah Badu, Indigo Girls and Court Yard Hounds).

The newly added names are Lissie, Janelle Monáe, Beth Orton, Nneka and Jesca Hoop. Not bad, huh? If you're unfamiliar with any of these ladies, check out a song or video from each below.

The show is on Wednesday, Aug. 4 at the amphitheatre at Walnut Creek. Tickets go on sale this Saturday, May 1 at 10 a.m. here. The tour presale begins on Thursday, April 29 at 10 a.m. here (the password is celebration).
