January 23. January marks the regional return of the Buffalo-born Ani DiFranco for this show at the Egg. DiFranco now makes her home in the warmer climes of New Orleans, where she's soaked up the local flavors of traditional jazz and other styles to work into her own music. The beloved singer-songwriter, activist, and mother of two is currently trumpeting the release of Allergic to Water, her 18th studio album, which boasts her longtime rhythm section of bassist Todd Sickafoose and drummer Terence Higgins, as well as violinist Jenny Scheinman and legendary local Ivan Neville of the Neville Brothers. (Comedian Dmitri Martin jokes January 29.) 8pm. $33.50. Albany. (518) 473-1845; Theegg.org.
