Michael Deeds recommends

Ani DiFranco: Friday, Revolution Center. Feminist icon and multi-instrumentalist also is an outstanding live performer.

Hannahversary party: Friday, Hannah’s. Celebrate the 38th year at the Downtown bar with the Rocci Johnson Band and happy-hour prices all night.

Anthrax: Saturday, Revolution Center. This will be the second of thrash metal’s “Big Four” bands to play the RevCenter. Don’t hold your breath for Metallica, but Slayer has been there and Megadeth likely could someday.
