Saturday with Ani DiFranco

Posted by Hello

I went to my first Ani concert Saturday night and it was great!
She was at the Auditorium Theatre, a place I use to work at. I'm
glad some things haven't changed, the theatre is still breath-taking.
I don't know if it's just me but my balance is always off when I walk
in there. It's old and never changing.

Back to Ani.
I couldn't have been sitting any higher! We were center but all
the way at the top. To think I could have had some good seats in
the main floor had I not participated in the pre-sale.

Anyway, I like that she played current and old songs including one she
wrote on her way to Chicago. That was cool. She just rocks the guitar,
it's amazing, takes my breath away :) gives me goosebumps. My binoculars worked great, my first time bringing some and I'm glad I did because it brought me closer to her. Her opening act Andrew Bird was great as well. When they were getting ready for "studying stones" he was a little behind so she improvised and jumped into a poem. It was one of my favorite concerts. She is so cute, I love her laugh...she's so charming :)

I remember my drama teacher telling the class, "a performance is good if the player makes your hair stand."Good thing you brought a pair of binoculars!

live music is great (kinda spiritual in a wierd way) and to see your favorite singer perform is even better! glad you had a good time.

carolvs, yes that would be a good indication. poetry read out loud by the poet does that to me as well.

culturekitchen, i agree with you, live music takes you away and for that moment you forget about everything else, its a great escape.
