BODACIOUS BABES OF R&B
It's been 15 years since the release of
Queen Latifah's hit single "Ladies First." At
the time, the song was iittle more than a typ
cal hip-hop boast, and women had precious lit-
tle clout in the music biz. But what a differ-
ence those 15 years has made. There's no
denying that women are the powerhouses in
today's music. Pianist Alicia Keyes has
released a pair of albums that have jumpstart-
ed the neo-soul movement. Missy Elliott is cur-
rently one of the most respected hip-hop
artists and producers, and she's in the process
of producing her own reality TV series^ Biggest
of all is Houston-born goddess Beyonce
Knowles, star of stage, screen and Superbowls,
who at 22, is one of the most recognizable
faces in music today. Though organizers have
called the Verizon Ladies First Tour a Lilith Fair
for the urban set, they're really selling them-
selves short there. Lilith Fair was never better
than marginally mainstream — this tour is all
about star power.

Though many have competed, no album has
yet to better sum up the mix of misdirected
anger, sexual frustration and awkward self-con-
sciousness of adolescence than the Violent
Femmes' 1983 self-titled debut. The
Wisconsin acoustic folk-punk trio's debut never
scored a hit, but is nonetheless considered an
underground classic and one of the earliest
examples of alternative rock. The group's later
excursions into country and spiritual music
never really caught on the way that "Violent
Femmes" did, which is a shame because, for
the most part, the band just kept getting bet-
ter as they matured. They even got Boy
George's blessing when they covered "Do You
Really Want to Hurt Me" and added their own
Though the Violent Femme's later records
have been largely overlooked, the group have
continued to record sporadically. This weekend
they're the headlining act following the
Greenville Avenue St. Patrick's Day parade.
