Ani DiFranco will be performing in Singapore, 10th February 2009, 8pm at Esplanade Theatre.
If I was back home, I would be there. But it feels sort of odd to talk about it now, because Ani DiFranco's music feels like it's more suitable for a younger version of myself - somebody more idealistic and with more angst. Ani is a mother now, and from some of her interviews, she also seems to have mellowed just that little bit.
Here in this video, she performs like a lyrical road-warrior - wielding her guitar dangerously. It's wonderful to see a performer with this kind of energy, and the way the crowd responded to her. I hope all goes well for the concert.
And if you can make it, I would so recommend that you be there.
