After a few early complications with the loud sound at Rough Trade (I’m sure we can thank the venue/record store’s condo location for that one) the shows must go on, and tonight’s Against Me! gig is one of the first of the new year. Those following the band’s triumphant tale know of trans frontwoman Laura Jane Grace (born Tom Gabel) and her public destigmatization of gender dysphoria. A process that is unbelievably brave for everyone, given voice through good ‘ol Florida punk rock. Go to this show and leave inspired.
