An amazing hour-long interview and concert with Ani DiFranco and Andy Stochansky from 1994 – fifteen years ago.
It’s a fantastic time capsule – bald Ani! bushy-haired Andy! enthusing over selling-out a 1200-seat show!
The concert portion is treasure trove of Out of Range songs. For the guitar freaks out there (hi!) it includes crystal clear video of her playing “4th of July,” “Hell Yeah,” “Letter to a John,” and the heretofore unseen “Face Up and Sing” and “How Have You Been.”
Then, later, a drums-only “Every State Line” and fucking “FALLING IS LIKE THIS.” Seriously. I kid you not. And, apparently I’ve been playing it mostly right for the past ten years. Oh, and “Pick Yer Nose,” “In Or Out,” “My IQ,” “Anticipate,” “Not So Soft,” an acappella Bruce Colburn song, and a nearly album-verbatim version of “Out of Range” (disappointingly shot tight from above her guitar).
If you had told me there was a DVD of this two hours ago I would have paid you $50 for it.
