Toward the end of the set by Dream Wife on Monday, vocalist Rakel Mjöll dedicated the show to “the bad bitches of DC,” then she screeched like a banshee to the lyrics of “F.U.U.”
As Dream Wife jammed to the end of the song from their self-titled debut album, released in January via Lucky Number, Rakel proclaimed, “I spy with my little eye… bad, bad bitches,” while scanning the audience.

An Ani DiFranco concert is more than just a show, more than just music. It’s the spirit of community, progressive consciousness, and inclusion. That spirit was alive at 9:30 Club on Saturday.
