Alanis Morissette, John Popper To Play Pro-Choice Benefit

Michael Franti & Spearhead, Joe Henry also slated for September 25 show in Washington, D.C.

Alanis Morissette, long a vocal supporter of a woman’s right to choose, will put her music where her mouth is when she headlines a benefit concert for Voters for Choice in Washington, D.C., later this month.

The singer will appear along with Blues Traveler’s John Popper and Chan Kinchla, as well as Michael Franti & Spearhead and Joe Henry, at D.A.R. Constitution Hall on September 25, according to Voters for Choice executive director Maureen Britell. Feminist activist Gloria Steinem is the board president of the organization, which works to elect pro-choice candidates.

Britell said the group asked Morissette to play an acoustic set, but the Canadian singer offered to bring her band. Morissette wrapped up her next album, for which a release date has not been set, earlier this year (see “Morissette Previews New Album At Los Angeles Show” ).

Tickets for the concert will go on sale Friday through Ticketmaster. VIP seats, including packages with passes to an after-show party with the artists, can be purchased from Voters for Choice at (202) 944-5080.
