“This is DiFranco’s most sophisticated album, a musical convergence of her best qualities: warm singing, graceful writing, experimentation.” —The Phoenix, on Red Letter Year

Madison’s Progressive Magazine Celebrates 100 Years With A Star-Studded Event!


In 1909, Sen. Robert LaFollette Sr. founded The Progressive with the intent to create “a magazine of progress—social, intellectual, institutional” and to “[win] back for the people the complete power over government—national, state, and municipal—which has been lost to them.”

100 years later, this award-winning monthly magazine based in your very own hometown is still going strong, as it remains among the finest liberal publications in the nation.

To celebrate The Progressive‘s historic anniversary, True Endeavors is proud to present a star-studded concert event. On April 30th, Ani DiFranco, Indigo Girls, Dar Williams, Melissa Ferrick, Hamell on Trial, Catie Curtis and Peter Mulvey will all take to the stage at the Orpheum Theatre for a night of unforgettable performances!

Tickets are available in three tiers:

General admission tickets are $50, and Premium tickets are $100. Those who purchase Premiums will be allowed early entry to the event and receive a limited edition silk screened concert poster as well as a year’s subscription to The Progressive. Additionally, 20 tickets are being held for those interested in participating in the event’s ticket auction. Auction winners will receive the Premium package as well as the opportunity to participate in a post-show meet and greet with the performing artists.
