The temperatures have dropped to damn-near freezing and it is getting dark out at an ungodly hour, but that doesn’t mean Northeasterners have to kiss music festivals goodbye. Cue the Tinderbox Music Festival: in its third year running, this 100 percent lady-fronted, New York-based fest stands and delivers right at the start of the chilly months, before winter sets in for good. The annual event, which will be hosted November 11th at Webster Hall, showcases a lineup of female artists from many genres and degrees of fame....
