423_imageOn Saturday, October 10th, Bantara Event Media Presents Righteous Babe Records‘ leader Ani DiFranco, live in concert at the Lobero Theatre.

Having filled the 2,000 seat Arlington Theatre to capacity the last four times she has played that venue, this show represents a return to Ms. DiFranco’s roots in a smaller venue and with a smaller band (Todd Sickafoose on upright bass and Allison Miller on drums) – and promises to be a powerful and intimate night. DiFranco has made waves as a pioneer of the contemporary independent-music movement, not to mention her role as a noteworthy folk-rock artist, and a distinctively progressive voice within the industry. Opening act is the Vermont-based solo folk artist Anaïs Mitchell.

The Lobero Theatre is at 33 East Canon Perdido Street in downtown Santa Barbara. Showtime is 8pm, and this is an all-ages event. Advance tickets or more information can be found at lobero.com or by calling 805.963.0761.
