Against Me!, Frameworks, Rough Francis

When: Thu., Sept. 29, 7:30 p.m. 2016

DIY ethics and an anarchic spirit have been the driving force behind Gainesville, Fla., punks Against Me! for nearly two decades. Some saw their controversial rise through independent labels into the majors as hypocritical, and the move even incited a backlash among the fan base. After singer Laura Jane Grace (formerly Thomas Gabel) came out as transgender in 2012, the band released Transgender Dysphoria Blues in 2014 on their own label, restoring much of its punk cred. This year, the band released its seventh studio album, the hulking Shape Shift With Me. Against Me! play Thursday, September 29, at the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington, with support from Frameworks and locals Rough Francis.

Price: $18/20
