Against Me! at Mystic Theatre

May 20, 2018
7:30 pm
Mystic Theatre

Against Me! is coming to Mystic Theatre on Sunday, May 20, 2018! To pirate the title of one of their early songs (and still a set-list staple), Against Me! is a band that laughs at danger and breaks all the rules. Fronted by Laura Jane Grace, AM!'s much-anticipated latest offering, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, is scheduled for release in January 2014. The title of their sixth album offers a direct nod to news that shocked fans and shook up the rock world when it was dropped--Grace is a transitioning transgender person. Formerly known as Tom Gabel, she revealed her story in the May 12, 2012 issue of Rolling Stone (readers curious to learn more about the transition can check out Laura Jane's "My First Year as a Woman" journal online in Cosmopolitan). Because Transgender Dysphoria Blues marks the band's first release with Grace as a woman, there are a lot of misconceptions: The record is neither a radical stylistic departure nor a "concept album." Rather, it's just another bold step forward for an artist doing what she has always done--forging her own path by processing the highs and lows of life through music. Against Me! began as an anarchist solo act in Gainesville, Florida in 1997. After transforming into a traditional four-piece a few years later with the crucial addition of guitarist James Bowman, they quickly became a driving force in the punk scene--despite facing an abundance of unsolicited danger.
