If you're anything like Rocks Off, you are more than ready to throw this unholy bastard of a week off a bridge, under a bus or anywhere else it can die the violent, bloody death it deserves. But before you do, we found another mash-up of Beyonce's "Single Ladies" on Facebook a couple of days ago - we know, we thought there was nothing else anyone could possibly do with the song; turns out we were wrong - that might lift your spirits a little bit. Consider it Rocks Off's gift to you, along with the news that according to livedaily.com, Houston is on the list for this summer's Lilith Fair (that's right, Lilith Fair), which is being resurrected with a pretty killer lineup of no Beyonce, but Sarah McLachlan, Norah Jones, Cat Power, Mary J. Blige (whose rodeo appearance tonight is sold out, by the way), Sheryl Crow, Colbie Caillat, Erykah Badu, Ke$ha, Tegan and Sara, Heart, Miranda Lambert and Metric. Kelly Clarkson, the Go-Go's and possibly former Dixie Chicks Martie Maguire and Emily Robison's new group the Yardhounds (also playing at SXSW) were just added. Date and venue and all that crap TBD, we're guessing the Woodlands, with the Showgrounds at Sam Houston Race Park an outside contender. Not all performers will be on all dates, of course, but we still like our chances of getting somebody cool. Anyhow, we hope you like the song, and that it sends you into the weekend whistling a happy tune. See the link after the jump - we won't give you any more clues about what it might be, except... Shazam!
...and here it is. Have a great weekend!
