Opening with her tune “I am Not a Pretty girl” Ani DiFranco took the stage with cheers and shrills at House of Blues San Diego Monday night March 16, 2015. Ani DiFranco is out touring in support of her new album Allergic to Water that was released on Nov. 4, 2014.

The progressive folk rock guitarist has had a very active voice for a variety of social movements including feminism, gender equality, cultural and environmental platforms. Her songs echo the same inspiring drive to call out and push to change people’s thinking.


Ani DiFranco has many accolades with 18 studio albums, she has been nominated for a few Grammys, and won a Grammy in 2004 for Best Recording Package, for her album, Evolve. The Best Recording Package award is given for the art and visuals across the entire album package. Other accolades include the National Organization of Women (NOW), Woman of Courage Award in 2006, and the Woodie Guthrie Award in 2009.

Singing and songwriting at young age at the early age of 18 in 1989 Difranco developed her own independent record Label called Righteous Babe Records citing the need “to release her music on her own terms”. Righteous Babe is headquartered in Buffalo, New York and it houses a small venue called Babeville for artists to explore their musical independence.

 

DiFranco performed many of her other tunes including her Grammy Award nominated single “Shy” Ani and the audience got into the groove with this jazzy, guitar thumping song. Other songs that made the set list for the night were "Dithering," "Swan Drive," "My IQ Poem," and "Untouchable Faces."
