Live at BabevilleDVD
Ani Difranco performed to a sellout crowd at Babeville, home of Righteous Babe Records, September 11th and 12th, 2007. What made those nights so special wasn't just the music because that's always special at an Ani show but the fact that she was playing the inaugural shows in her very own venue, a downtown church once slated for demolition that has been beautifully restored as a state-of-the-art music hall and newly rechristened Babeville. Ani took the opportunity to fashion a two-night retrospective of sorts, performing songs from every stage of her fabled career in breathtaking new arrangements with her latest touring band. The spirit of celebration was in the air, and the energy in the room both onstage and in the audience was extraordinary.
