Against Me! to Play Toronto's Trans* Pride
Published May 22, 2014Against Me! have had a busy 2014 supporting their new Transgender Dysphoria Blues LP, but the beloved punk crew have managed to slot in another upcoming Canadian appearance. On top of the rest of the group's globe-trotting tour schedule, they'll now be appearing at Toronto's Trans* Pride event in June.
A press release confirms that the act will be performing at the Trans* Pride March Post-March Showcase at Yonge-Dundas Square on June 27, with Against Me! headlining a three-band bill. Also performing that night will be local outfits Crackpuppy and the Cliks. The show is set to start at 8:30 p.m. local time, though the actual kickoff time will be dependent on when the march winds up in the square.
You'll find the rest of Against Me!'s current schedule, which also includes an appearance at Montreal's Osheaga Festival in August, down below.
As previously reported, vocalist Laura Jane Grace is getting her own reality show called So Much More that will explore her life as a transgendered woman, as well as focusing on "other members of the trans community whose experiences are woefully underrepresented and misunderstood in the media." A premiere date has not been delivered for the program, but it's being put together for AOL Originals.
