Grace Jones Joins Bluesfest Lineup

Bluesfest’s nostalgic 2011 lineup already boasts Bob Dylan, B.B. King, Ben Harper, Elvis Costello, ZZ Top and Jethro Tull but to ensure ALL of our parents attend with us next April, organizers have just announced proto-Diva, former Dolph Lundgren lover and enduring 80s icon, Grace Jones. The last time I saw Jones was when she opened the 2009 Sydney Festival to 250,000 people and let me tell you, she’s the most limber sexagenarian I’ve seen in my life. Watch this woman/alien at all costs.
