House of Blues in San Diego, CA

A huge crowd ventured out to the San Diego House of Blues on a Monday night to catch Ani DiFranco and Pearl and the Beard.  It wasn’t just pairs of friends or couples at the show either, full on families made their way out to catch Ani DiFranco do what she does best.  Pearl and the Beard started the night off with their infectious blend of indie folk and those mesmerizing three part harmonies had just about everyone in a trance.  The trance quickly faded as Ani DiFranco stepped on stage.  She started her set off with “Not a Pretty Girl” and played a few more throwbacks before going into “Dithering” from her latest release Allergic to Water that hit stores last year.  The crowd sang every word while bouncing along to each guitar strum.  Ani DiFranco absolutely kills it on stage.  She has this super infectious energy that makes you smile as soon as you see her and hopeful as soon as you hear her sing.  After her crowd pleasing 19 song setlist it’s clear that Ani DiFranco is better than ever and shows no signs of slowing down soon.  Make sure you catch her on tour if she comes to a town near you.  Dates are here.
