Folk-rocking feminist icon Ani DiFranco is redefining the term “power trio” on her latest tour. The singer-guitarist (and multi-instrumentalist) brings two backing musicians — a bassist and drummer. And she’s using her live band to deliver a strong message; this is the “VOTE DAMMIT” tour. “I’m encouraging people to take all the elections this year seriously,” DiFranco explains. “Not just the presidency, which is all you hear about in the media.” Expect to hear more about this between songs. The woman has lots to say, as she’s proved through 20-plus studio albums released during a career that’s lasted over a quarter century.

8 p.m. Oct. 14, Revolution Center, 4983 Glenwood St., Garden City. $35 general ($40 at door), $55 VIP. Ticketfly.
