Ani DiFranco is very much worth seeing. Great concert. I’ve heard the word “force of nature” used about people before. I didn’t really get it.
Now I know. Her stage presence is massive and just such a force.
Her guitar-playing is virtuosic– among the best I’ve ever seen. She has more personality than some entire countries and her band is also stellar.
My favorite song she did live was “Fuel” which she completely changed up to a 70s-style funk-inflected jam that was completely unexpected but also worked perfectly.
If you can see her live, do so.
If there were any justice in the world, her songs would be as culturally iconic as those of Led Zeppelin or the Beatles.
