AGAINST ME!

TEENAGE ANARCHY AT THE CASTLE

Anarchist punk rock band Against Me! brought their highly energetic live show to the Castle Theatre in Bloomington Illinois.  The band rocked the crowd through an 18 song set that consisted of old favorites and songs from their rockin’ new album “Transgender Dysphoria Blues”.  New song “Fuckmylife666″ kicked things off and got the crowd fired up.  The night was full of crowd surfing, stage diving, fist pumping and shout alongs to the catchy melodies Against Me! is so well known for.  One of the highlights of the evening had to be the new song “True Trans Soul Rebel”.  Singer Laura Jane Grace who is gender transitioning reminded the crowd throughout the evening that everyone should be treated equally.  So true.  The old fan favorite “Don’t Lose Touch” showcased the new rhythm section of Inge Johansson on bass and Atom Willard on drums.  Laura Grace and the band ended this great night of anthemic punk rock with the catchy “Thrash Unreal” from the New Wave album, “Black Me Out” (the band’s latest music video), and “Ocean”.  The night was a perfect marriage between band and fans releasing aggressions and celebrating life with some kick ass punk rock music.  Click here for a full list of upcoming tour dates.   review & photos by Michael McMillen
