“However fierce our band was in the past, imagine me, six-foot-two, in heels, fucking screaming into someone’s face,” Laura Jane Grace (formerly Tom Gabel) told Rolling Stone in May, shortly after admitting to a life of suffering under gender dysphoria and planning to transition to life as a woman. The band’s performance at the Upstate Concert Hall last Wednesday was one of the very first to feature Grace presenting as a woman (a process that will continue for another year before a potential sex reassignment surgery), and “fierce” doesn’t begin to describe the figure she cut, singing new material from Against Me!’s forthcoming Transgender Dysphoria Blues.
