SF Show of the Week // GO4FREE to Against Me! at Slim’s 9/24 (THUR)

Against Me!Written by Nik Crossman //

Against Me! with Annie Girl and The Flight, Cayetana //
Slim’s – San Francisco
September 24th, 2015 //

Originally a solo project by Laura Jane Grace, Against Me! came out of Gainsville, Fla., in 1997. Performing any live show that would take her, Grace eventually filled her act with lead guitarist James Bowman, drummer Warren Oakes and bassist Andrew Seward. Combining punk, folk and country, the vagabond group added to their perpetual tour of live shows with their flagship full-length album Reinventing Axl Rose in 2002 and received 4.5 out of 5 stars by AllMusic for it.

Since their debut album, Against Me! has released five albums and improved their Billboard 200 placement with each subsequent release. In 2012, Grace dropped her birth name (Thomas James Gabel) and publicly came out as transgender, laying the foundation for their 2014 LP Transgender Dysphoria Blues, which reached No. 23 on the Billboard 200.

This Thursday, Grace and the Against Me! crew will take Slim’s on a journey through nearly 20 years of socially conscious punk, folk and country. Tickets are already sold out, but one lucky person can win a pair of tickets by registering their full name and email below.

Contest ends this Thursday at 3 p.m.
