Ani DiFranco stopped by — of all places — the Wall Street Journal Cafe to promote her new album "Red Letter Year." Although initially named for a song about Katrina hitting her home of New Orleans, she says it seems like a more prescient title now that Barack Obama has won the Presidency. Despite the fact that her label, Righteous Babe Records, is struggling because of the economy, she's hopeful about the future because of the way this election spurred so many people to participate in our democratic process. Then she sings about trying to make sure insecurity about her looks doesn't stand in the way of her living her life. [Wall Street Journal]

Oh, I love me some Ani. She is number 1 on my "Must see in concert before I die" list.
