Sounds Like San Diego: April 1



    For years now, we've been hearing about the music industry dying: that there's a new paradigm and that the Internet is killing music. As artists and labels frantically attempt to find footing, Ani DiFranco stands out as someone who rejected the paradigm years ago. With releases in the double digits -- all on her own label -- DiFranco has built a loyal following by staying close to her fans while still maintaining the mystique of a rock star. Catch the folky, punky rock of Ani DiFranco tonight at the House of Blues.
