By Exclaim! StaffTom Gabel of Against Me! dropped by the Exclaim! Offices to perform on our Lower Deck just before he had to rejoin the rest of the members of Against Me! and perform at the Mod Club. He played an intimate and rousing rendition of "Because of the Shame," off of latest Against Me! album White Crosses, which you can watch above.
Below, Gabel discusses his intimate encounter with Marilyn Manson, his love of Canada and answers some questions about Against Me! and his solo career. All of this is back-dropped by his performance of "Teenage Anarchist."
