Ani DiFranco is one righteous babe in the music world (In case you didn't know, her own record label is called Righteous Babe Records). Since 1990 the singer/songwriter/guitarist has whipped up countless song concoctions for her very lengthy catalog of albums. Her most recent, titled Red Letter Year, was released in September of '08. For an evening of folk/indie rock from none other than DiFranco (who is also highly recognized as a feminist icon), Neighborhood Theatre is the place to be on March 11. Chad Stokes (lead vocalist and guitarist of State Radio) opens. $35 (general admission); $55 (VIP). 7 p.m. Neighborhood Theatre, 511 E. 36th St. 704-358-9298. www.neighborhoodtheatre.com.
