Webcast anyone? Ani Difranco and Amanda Palmer play live…

Sad to say, but I have found hole in the well-oiled WordPress machine. I wanted to share a couple of webcasts by some excellent, outspoken female artists, but the WordPress video embedding tool does not seemingly allow for these and I cannot yet fathom how to tinker the html code to make it work. Nevertheless, follow the links below and you will experience a feast for the ears, not to mention two uncharacteristically joyous performances from two of the most impassioned and political (without going into thirty minute why-did-I-pay-so-much-money-for-a-gig-only-to-be-talked-at? U2-style lectures) artists still above the daisies.

Ani DiFranco —ever resistant to the cooing of mainstream record labels— has been releasing folk-based music since 1990 on her own label, Righteous Babe Records and is known for her ardent views on politics, feminism, sexuality, freedom and democracy.

Ani DiFranco’s webcast is here.

Amanda ‘f*cking’ Palmer is perhaps better known as one half of the The Dresden Dolls, a Brechtian Punk Cabaret two-piece. In either vestige, Palmer’s music is known for its provocative, biting satire. No stranger to the webcast, Palmer is in this one celebrating her release from her record label.
