Laura Jane Grace to Perform at the Charleston Pour House in April
Laura Jane Grace, the Emmy-Nominated artist, author, musician, and activist, will perform at the Charleston Pour House on Sunday, April 23rd at 8 pm. She’ll be joined by Weakened Friends. Tickets go on sale this Friday (2/10/23) at 10 am.
Grace is a major figure in today’s rock scene as both a solo artist and the frontwoman of Against Me!, which she founded in Naples, FL in the late 1990s. She has released four solo albums and seven records with Against Me!, and in 2012 went public with her gender transition in the pages of Rolling Stone. In her music, she continues to detail her journey all while staying true to her earlier themes of outspoken political critique – environmentalism along with personal and social liberation – with a base in American music including country and folk-rock, with a penchant for noise and anarchy.
In 2014, Grace released Transgender Dysphoria Blues that would become Against Me!’s most acclaimed album to date. Reception to the album would lead to the release of her 10-episode documentary series titled True Trans With Laura Jane Grace (AOL Studios), which went on to be nominated for a News & Documentary Emmy Award.
A few years later, Grace would release her memoir, “TRANNY: Confessions of Punk Rock’s Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout, which went on to become one of Billboard’s “100 Greatest Music Books Of All Time.” Grace has also won the “Icon Award” at the Alternative Press Music Awards in 2017.
