Tonight's Setlist: Anti-folk Folk

Posted By on Sun, Mar 2, 2014 at 9:20 AM

We've two women enticing you out tonight. At the Van Duzer, longtime political commentator Ani DiFranco will entertain you with songs infused with insight, righteousness, humor and compassion. Tickets run $45 general, $22 HSU students. Local astounding success story Jenny Scheinman opens at 8 p.m.


Down the hill, neo-folk artist Diane Cluck plays Mazzotti's (yes, Mazzotti's!) in support of her seventh album Boneset. Cluck is highly celebrated among her peers — Devendra Banhart, Jeffrey Lewis, Regina Spektor, Coco Rosie, Kimya Dawson, et al — but has yet to receive the sort of mainstream recognition such a talent deserves (hence, Mazzotti's). She refers to her style as "intuitive folk" and it's true that her music digs more deeply than clever lyrics alone suggest. You know when you hear a song and time stops all around and you find yourself trapped with your feelings, but then the beauty of the song burns off everything holding you back and suddenly you're soaring, heart racing and free in the world? That's what Cluck's capable of bringing you. Cellist Isabel Castellvi joins Cluck onstage, Sondra Sun-Odeon opens.

Show's $10, doors at 8:30 p.m.
