Media Roundup: DiFranco returns

This just in: Queen of indie, feminism and indie feminists Ani DiFranco has announced a return to the isthmus as part of her fall tour. DiFranco will appear at the Wisconsin Union Theater on Sunday, October 5, with tickets going on sale this morning, Friday, June 20, at 11:30 AM. The new mother, who is currently working on her latest release, Red Letter Year, last appeared in Madison in October 2006. Given the timing of the show, one day short of a month before this year’s presidential election, the concert should provide an excellent outlet for those of you who wish Dennis Kucinich was still in the candidate pool. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to see a truly inspiring, Grammy Award-winning artist.

Ani DiFranco comes to Madison October 5
If you’re craving some gold ole’ female singer-songwriting, but can’t hold onto your (ironically striped, polka-dotted, argyle or perhaps even mismatching) socks until the fall, consider checking out Australian performer Missy Higgins, who will be coming to the Majestic Theatre on Thursday, July 10. Higgins has taken the down-under by storm, recently winning multiple ARIA Awards (the Australian equivalent of the Grammys). Check out this interview from LiveDaily to learn more about the talented musician.

Also freshly announced in the past week was The Dandy Warhols‘ soiree at the Barrymore, scheduled for Wednesday, September 10, in support of the physical release of …Earth to the Dandy Warhols…, the band’s latest offering, which was digitally released in May. Tickets for the show, which will also feature openers Darker My Love and The Upsidedown, go on sale tomorrow, Saturday, June 21. To read more about the band’s brave step into the digital age, check out this interview from Wired earlier this week.

As always, stay tuned to the True Endeavors concert calendar and to keep up-to-date on all of the latest concert announcements, which also included Tapes ‘n’ Tapes, Ralph’s World and several others this past week.

Finally, if you weren’t unable to snag tickets to the sold-out Swell Season (i.e. Once stars Glen Hansard, Marketa Irglova and Hansard’s band, the Frames) show this past Monday, check out some of the links to catch a glimpse of what you missed, including a link to purchasing information for an audio download of the entire show from
