Righteous Babe Radio

by Habibullah Saleem



This week: 9-18-2015 Ottawa, ON

Recorded at the Algonquin Commons Theatre in Ottawa, ON on September 18, 2015. Terence and Todd complete the trio in this super fun show. Starting out the show is the classic opener of God's Country before a wonderful version of As Is. A really vibrant Napoleon is featured mid-set, before a Canadian twist on Coming Up (this city, this province, this country). Ani tells the tale of her first time playing Italy as an intro for Two Little Girls, just before a beautiful version of Rain Check. If He Tries Anything, and Independence Day brings us to the end of the set where the band closes out with Genie and Shameless, before a double encore of Gravel and Joyful Girl.
New bootlegs featured every week, airing Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights at 9pm CDT and Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings at 4am CDT.

Find featured bootlegs archived here.



From interviews, to talks, to podcast episodes we love, tune in for an hour and catch a featured conversation! With topics including activism & social justice, music, all things Ani and more, there's a little something for everyone. Conversations will air Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 12pm and 5pm CST.

Selected conversations produced by Righteous Babe can be found on Ani's Patreon.
