Theologians remain divided on the question of whether God is a woman. But judging from the weather for yesterday's Lilith Fair performance at Merriweather Post Pavilion, S/he is definitely a women's music fan. Clear skies, cool temperatures and virtually no humidity made spending seven hours outdoors listening to music an utter delight.Then again, given the quality of the performances yesterday, it would have been a gas even in high heat and humidity. Because not only was the singing and playing first-rate throughout, the bill offered enough variety to ensure that there was no chance of boredom creeping in.It helped that the stars seemed to be having as much fun as the fans.

Last night's episode didn't waste any time getting into it, and I'm not going to either. What a difference a strong opening makes Before the theme song had even played, we'd gotten a whole lot of action AND information. In rapid-fire succession, we alternate between Sookie and Warlow at Casa Stackhouse and Jess and Bill at Compton manor. Sookie and her "vampire-killin' ball of light" are not amused with Warlow's declaration of love, or his claim that he only murdered Sookie's parents because they were going to kill Sookie.

Lisa Mathews, lead singer of local band Love Riot, says it slowly and clearly: "Twen-ty minutes."That's how long she and her band have to play at the Lilith Fair tomorrow. Twenty minutes amounts to about four songs. And choosing those four songs hasn't been a picnic.The thin, porcelain-skinned singer, wild red hair pulled back casually, sat at the bar at Louie's Bookstore Cafe last week with fellow Love Rioter Mikel Gehl to talk about life, Love Riot and Lilith."What the Lilith Fair represents is such a tradition of women singers struttin' their stuff.

Lilith is one tricky chick. As if Bill isn't full of himself enough, she appears to him (naked and bloody, of course) a few times, tells him he's the chosen one to lead and to drink her. All of her. But she does the same thing to another Authority Chancellor, and angry religious Bill promptly chops off his head. Lilith later appears to Salome and says the same thing. Bill, thankfully, isn't around for this appearance. Clearly, Lilith isn't the right person to follow -- in case you were confused.

To hear Sarah McLachlan tell it, coming up with the concept behind the summer's hottest tour was really no big deal. "If I hadn't done it, somebody else would have," she says of Lilith Fair, the roving women's music festival that arrives at the Merriweather Post Pavilion this Tuesday. "I'm just glad I did."So are the fans. In a season awash in rock and funk festivals -- Lollapalooza, H.O.R.D.E., Smokin' Grooves, Warped, Ozzfest, the Furthur Fest and Jamizon, to name but a few -- the Lilith Fair is by far the most successful, playing to packed houses while others face empty seats.

Although it probably wasn't intended as such, founding the Lilith Fair was probably the smartest career move Sarah McLachlan could have made.Before Lilith, McLachlan was a marginal act at best, a smart, emotionally eloquent singer/songwriter from Canada whose heartfelt, energetic concert performances had earned her a small but fervent following. Now, as the all-female Lilith Fair heads off for its third (and reputedly final) tour around America, McLachlan is a bona fide pop star, with an instantly recognizable name and several Top-10 hits to her credit.

CAMDEN, N.J. -- "Will you guys flirt with me?" Matt Honisch of Philadelphia asked a group of blase blondes at the Lilith Fair.Then the twentysomething gargled his beer while his companion, Darell Garner, wearing goggles and a leather skull cap, flashed a bright white pair of undies. But these men behaving badly were exceptions to the rule.They admit it: They're here for the chicks. "We're hoping we can change the lesbians around," Honisch joked.Nearly 20,000 people, "chicks" included, came to the Blockbuster-Sony Entertainment Center in Camden, N.J., on Sunday to see singer Sarah McLachlan's brainchild of a concert tour: the Lilith Fair.

I'm pretty sure "True Blood" just went over the deep end. Here's a quick summary of what went down tonight: A hate group recruiting Hoyt, who suddenly is a really, really bad person. The smoke monster chuckling. Pam sporting crimped hair. Lafayette has his lips sewn shut by Jesus' witchcrafty family. Sam Merlotte sniffing around like a bloodhound. Jason shooting Jessica in the head. Oh, and Lilith rising from blood like Carrie and blowing blood mist while sounding like a wounded baby raptor from "Walking With Dinosaurs.

Liz Phair is not the sort of person who'd come out and say something like "Lilith Fair changed my life." Coming from her lips, such a statement would seem too corny to sound like anything but sarcasm.Even so, being part of the roving, all-female road show last summer had a tremendous effect on Phair. "When I watched Sarah [McLachlan] and Natalie [Merchant] and Paula [Cole], I just sat there going, `I want to be that,' " she says, still sounding slightly awe-struck.It wasn't just the strength of the songs or the musicality of the performances that struck her. What Phair most admired about the Lilith headliners was the energy and emotionality they projected.

Lilith Fair's public image may be tied to founder Sarah McLachlan, but the festival's heart lies with the secondary acts.Since it started last year, Lilith -- which features McLachlan and a varying lineup of female artists spread across three stages -- has become a music-business behemoth. It was last summer's top-grossing festival and seems sure to do even better this year. Naturally, much of the roving festival's box-office success has to do with the big stars on the bill, a group that ranges from Natalie Merchant and the Indigo Girls (both of whom perform at the Merriweather Post Pavilion today and tomorrow)

The scream of joy came from a woman on the track apron, and then the woman, still whooping it up, burst into the winner's circle. Class Concern had just captured the Humphrey S. Finney Stakes yesterday at Pimlico Race Course, and Lilith Boucher, his trainer, was beside herself. It was about to get worse. Boucher's cell phone rang. She answered and screamed again. It was her assistant, calling from Middleburg, Va., saying the Boucher-trained Class Sprite, in his second race over jumps, had just won a big race and defeated a hurdle champion.

BOSTON -- As a certified member of the Clean Slate Club, I like to end every year confessing the errors of my column ways. This annual event in media (self) bashing is not particularly popular with my crowd. For the most part, journalists adhere to the Bill Gates Theory of Corrections. Once, wrote editor Michael Kinsley, "we asked Bill Gates what should be done when people complain about factual errors in Slate. His advice was, `Have them killed.'" That may be a touch extreme. But if our salaries depended on being right, what would happen to the round-table prophets who pronounced Bill Clinton's imminent death all last year?

Whether it was the glories of womanhood or the furies of a summer thunderstorm, there was joy in the mudville of Lilith Fair last night."Just so you know, tonight's show is brought to you by the letter `S' and the number `4,' " said rock superstar Sheryl Crow from the stage as she sported a white T-shirt decorated by those fluorescent pink symbols. The letter "S" made sense, at least, as it stood not only for Sheryl but also for festival founder Sarah McLachlan, who was due to follow Crow in the concert finale.

DON'T YOU THINK that Jerry Falwell is a nosy, sour, crabby old goober who ought to be isolated in his fundamentalist cave and left for at least a decade without publicity or attention of any kind?I say this because it seems that nearly every month, Falwell and his troops in Virginia say something so stupid and out of touch with the real world that it makes all of us shake our heads and laugh. However, the media seem to get a big kick out of giving Falwell precious attention and therefore an enhanced image across the nation.

Lilith Fair bills itself as "a celebration of women in music," mostly to draw attention to the femininity of the artists it features. And the lineup that played Lilith at the Merriweather Post Pavilion Saturday certainly had its share of well-known women musicians, what with Sarah McLachlan, Natalie Merchant and the Indigo Girls topping the bill.But by the time the 7 1/2 hour concert drew to a close with a full-cast performance of "What's Going On," a word change seemed in order. Because between the joyous, playful mood of the performers and the jovial nature of the largely female crowd, the festival came across not as a celebration of women in music, but a celebration with women in music.
