Against Me!

by The Staff on May 8, 2014

Upstate Concert Hall, Friday


Since 2012, the story of Florida punk band Against Me! has been the story of frontwoman Laura Jane Grace, who came out that year as a transgender woman. The gender dysphoria she had dealt with since being born Thomas James Gabel has become an obvious subtext to the unflinchingly political music the band have been making since 1997, but it hasn’t made the band a one-issue act. Transgender Dysphoria Blues, the band’s most recent record, also features a track called “Osama Bin Laden as the Crucified Christ.” (May 9, 8 PM, $20, 1208 Route 146, Clifton Park, 371-0012)
