Quote from an Alt listener: "if Ani kicked me in the face I'd consider it an honor."

Pretty sure she isn't going to hurt anybody, but Ani DiFranco will kick some ass when she plays the Wilma on August 7th. Tickets are $35 for general admission, $45 for reserved premium balcony. Get tickets at the Top Hat and online starting Friday, May 3rd at 10 a.m.

Widely considered a feminist icon, Grammy winner Ani DiFranco is the mother of the DIY movement, being one of the first artists to create her own record label in 1990. While she has been known as the “Little Folksinger,” her music has embraced punk, funk, hip hop, jazz, soul, electronica and even more distant sounds. Her collaborators have included everyone from Utah Phillips to legendary R&B saxophonist Maceo Parker to Prince. She has shared stages with Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Seeger, Kris Kristofferson, Greg Brown, Billy Bragg, Michael Franti, Chuck D., and many more. Her most recent album Binary was released in June 2017 on Righteous Babe Records and her memoir No Walls and the Recurring Dream will be released on May 7, 2019 by Viking Books.
