Against Me!/Tim Barry/Fea

When: Sun., June 26, 8 p.m. and Mon., June 27, 8 p.m. 2016

Several albums into a storied career, Against Me! has only gotten more in touch with what makes them love punk rock, and doubly as willing to burn the establishment to the ground. Openly transgender frontwoman Laura Jane Grace literally did just that at a recent show in North Carolina — after the now-famous “bathroom bill” was passed making it illegal for transgender people to use public facilities comfortably, she set fire to her birth certificate on stage in front of hundreds of fans. As much as their music is designed to make a statement, however, it’s also easy to see that no one embraces the fun of punk quite like Against Me! does. The sold out Grog Shop crowd will be jumping, finger pointing, and push-pitting their way through back to back nights of hits like “I Was A Teenage Anarchist,” “We Laugh at Danger and Break All The Rules” and “True Trans Soul Rebel.” (Shively)

Price: $22.50-$25
