Approaching 40, DiFranco is an elder stateswoman of DIY music publishing, having founded Righteous Babe Records in 1989 and carved a fiercely independent path to fame. But 20 years in, the New Orleans resident is experiencing a rebirth of sorts: She's a newlywed, a new mother and author of a new Louisiana-recorded album, Red Letter Year. Toshi Reagon opens. Tickets $36.
