Before hitting the road this fall behind recent album Hole in My Head, Laura Jane Grace and her Mississippi Medicals band stopped by NPR to perform a Tiny Desk concert.

Grace and the Mississippi Medicals — comprised of her wife Paris Campbell Grace on backing vocals, Drive-By Truckers bassist Matt Patton, and Ergs drummer Mikey Erg — keep spirits high through their 15 minutes at the desk.

Their five-song set includes Hole in My Head cuts "I'm Not a Cop" and "Supernatural Possession," and recent single "All F—ed Out." A pair of Against! Me favourites in "Pints of Guinness Make You Strong" and "Black Me Out" are also worked in.
