Ani DiFranco

If you���re not inclined to stand in the glaring sun among thousands of sweating strangers listening to songs of tragic love you may be in luck with the folkloric melodies of Ani DiFranco. DiFranco will be traveling through Oregon as part of her ���To The Teeth���� Tour. She’ll be in Portland at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on July 14 at 8 p.m. However, if you can’t wait, and feel like a good road trip she’s in Jacksonville and Eugene, Ore., on July 8 and 9 respectively. Her concert in Eugene at the Cuthbert Amphitheatre benefits In Harmony, On Behalf of Our Nation’s Children, a nonprofit organization assisting young foster children in their journey to permanent adoptive homes by creating an intergeneration neighborhood. For those headed north she’ll be playing in Spokane, Wash., on July 10, and Vancouver, British Columbia, as part of the Vancouver Folk Music Festival on July 12. For tickets call Fastixx.
