Last night I went to see Ani Difranco with one of my good friends at the State Theater.
Favorite song #1 from the evening.
Favorite song #2 from the evening.
It was great to see her now that I'm ten years older. Her songs mean something different now and I've always felt like that is the mark of someone who writes great music-- meanings can morph throughout all of the phases of your life. I definitely don't feel that way about much of the emo music I listened to in high school.
I left the show with a permagrin and a full soul. The vibe from everyone-- her fabulous opener Jenny Scheinman, the crew, the audience-- was so positive. I love shows like that and I'm so glad I got to share it with a fellow Ani fan-- she was the best Ani Difranco date ever!
|We were oozing joy.|
Good stuff. Ani is a Boss.
