Ani DiFranco Visits Emo’s on Her Binary Tour

Alternative-folk rock singer-songwriter, Ani DiFranco, made a stop by Emo’s Saturday night with special guests World Poetry Slam Champion, Buddy Wakefield and women’s rights champion, MILCK. DiFranco’s performance at Emo’s was the next-to-last stop on the Righteous Babe’s tour showcasing her latest album, Binary. The 20th studio album from DiFranco, Binary is an unprecedented mélange of folk-rock, punk, hip-hop and jazz social commentary covering a broad range of topics from love and maturity to politics and feminism. NRP wrote of the album, “Binary might not be the record that specifically speaks to you in your next heartbreak or your first year of parenting, but it could be the record that wakes you up to the world.”

DiFranco’s tour wrapped-up on Nov. 19 in New Orleans and the hardworking, always touring artist will be back on the road in Spring ’18. For additional information and upcoming tour dates visit
