Against Me!, as the name implies, are both a confrontational and personal band. At times, their bark has been louder than their bite, but on the heels of their new Transgender Dysphoria Blues, the Laura Jane Grace-led group has found a new energy, one that indulges in self-exploration, but also hits on universal truths that extend far beyond the gender issues at play. While Grace is presently going through some very public changes and the record reflects that exhibitionist nature, Against Me! holds just as much anger and insight as ever. It's rare that a band can be this personal and avoid narcissism, but that's exactly what Against Me! achieve. With Laura Stevenson and Cheap Girls. 18+. (Photo by Ryan Russell)
