ANI DIFRANCO HEADS TO THE SWING STATES ON FALL VOTE DAMMIT! TOURCreated: 07/05/12 Created: 8/17/2004
Ani is hitting the road on this fall’s VOTE DAMMIT! tour to urge people to take part in the democratic process. She will travel to the “swing states” likely to decide our upcoming presidential election with voter registration organizations at each stop of the tour, in hopes of registering 100% of the audience to vote. Upright bassist Todd Sickafoose continues his onstage collaborations with Ani, and comedian Margaret Cho joins the tour for a few stops at the end of September. Comedian Suzanne Westenhoefer opens four shows earlier in the tour, while musicians Amy Ray and Emily Saliers of the Indigo Girls will make special appearances in New Orleans, Memphis, and Eureka Springs. Political songwriter Dan Bern will open many of the remaining shows. Click here for tour dates or go to our VOTE DAMMIT! page for more details!
