Ani DiFranco

When: Tue., June 5, 7:30 p.m. 2018

Over the course of nearly 30 years and 20 albums, singer-songwriter, poet, and activist Ani DiFranco has blazed a trail all her own. As one of the first artists to create their own label (Righteous Babe Records in 1990 — she was 19), DiFranco reminds us that folk isn’t about wielding an acoustic guitar: It’s an attitude. “You don’t get to play god, man/ I do,” DiFranco sings on 2017’s pro-choice battle cry, “Play God,” one of many instances of the sharp lyrics on Binary.
