Ani DiFranco: Shepherd's Bush Empire, London

John Aizlewood, The Guardian, 1 February 2001

WITHOUT A HINT OF MAINSTREAM chart or media attention over a decade-long career, without a new record to promote and without any discernible music industry "buzz", Ani DiFranco and her tightly drilled, multi-instrumental five-piece band can undertake an extensive tour of Europe. Moreover, they can sell out — and it's a genuine, sweating-walls, packed-to-the-rafters sell-out — one of London's more prestigious mid-range venues.

Total word count of piece: 348
