    OHO shut down over night. Onherown.net - None of us had time to exchange email addresses before this happened. As much as I post here, you can only imagine how much I posted over there. It's really sad.
    They do have a facebook page but your posts aren't public so it really doesn't make up for anything.

    I saw Ani live for the first time last week. Oh my goodness what an AMAZING guitarist. Seeing her play guitar live in the flesh was . Great band of drums and double bass too, a very joyful, relaxed, and fun performance. She opened with Angry Anymore; after that I can't remember the exact order, but she played:

    Angry Anymore
    Allergic to Water
    Dithering
    Telepathic
    Swan Dive
    Two Little Girls
    Modulation
    Deferred Gratification
    The Slant
    Names and Dates and Times
    Alrighty
    Play God
    Even More
    Zizzing
    Binary
    --
    Joyful Girl

    I'm sure I'm missing some. It was great!

    Thank you for the set! Glad you got to see her in the flesh! She is the best guitarist who also sings at the same time that I've ever witnessed.

    So someone told that Ani had revised To The Teeth on her latest tour and to look for it on youtube. I found it. And I lost my shit when she gets to the OPEN FIRE part of the song. She added a lot to the list, let's just .. yes

    "Open fire on poverty, the violence that never ends. Open fire on that Cheeto and all his friends!"

    Open fire on the media manufacturing ??
    Open fire on the NRA and all the lies they told us along the way
    Open fire on each weapons manufacturers while they’re giving head to some Republican senator
    Open fire on police playing soldiers of war
    Open fire when the DEA comes and knocks on your door
    Open fire ?
    Open fire on the CIA and the Pentagon
    Open fire on each fascist who threatens our democracy
    Open fire on the racists who favour ??
    Open fire on the poverty and violence that never ends
    Open fire on the cheeto and all of his friends..

    I see her in late February. I miss OHO. I am sure she has tons of new songs that she is playing live. But without that group.. it's almost impossible to round up all the live youtube clips. There was a user named FrancoApple who was particularly great at finding new songs.

    Ani's habit is to tour a new record but play a lot of songs she's just written.. like just the night before.

    Scot Fisher, whom she started Righteous Babe with, says that the tour is when she falls out of love with her latest record and he has to beg her to play a couple songs from it. hehe

    This is a really good clip. At the beginning she asks for requests to warm up and someone yells out Evolve and she says she can't remember it. Then someone yells out for Buildings and Bridges. I don't know the last time she's played that live, it's been a while.
    And she just starts playing it like she played it the day before. Ani is a rare breed of artists who can play solo and make you feel like there is a whole band behind her.
    Also in this are stories about her memoir, her daughters ambition to be a singer, and a lot of talk about where she was in the past vs. where she is now.
    It's a good clip.


    What her fingers on the frets. I've never seen someone who also sings play that fast.
