Hey everybody! What’s that? You live in London and have the January blues because no one’s around for shows? Have no fear! Here’s a handy guide to exactly where you should be this January.
Tomorrow, the 10th and 11th of January
Ani Difranco plays the Union Chapel, Islington.
With her first release in over three years, Ani is back promoting her new album “¿Which side are you on?”. Ani is well known for writing deeply personal (and if I may say, damned good) music. Also, she’s joined by a wide range of New Orleans brass musicians, including Galactic alumni. If you’re wondering, yes, I am totally going to be there tomorrow. If you’re going, say hello, we can hang out. Get tickets here.
