Laura Jane Grace

Laura Jane Grace — the Against Me! leader who was known as Tom Gabel before announcing her decision to change genders last month — has already started playing shows as a woman. And the weekend before last, she showed up at the Las Vegas festival Punk Rock Bowling, opening for Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba by playing a surprise solo acoustic set. Below, check out a video of her belting the living shit out of the Against Me! song “Walking Is Still Honest.” Thanks to Michael_ for the tip.

If you haven’t already seen it, the Rolling Stone article about Gabel’s decision to become Grace is now online in full, and it’s both a powerful and an informative read. I definitely learned a few things reading it.

  1. Awesome. Great crowd too, surprisingly coordinated on the background vox.

  2. READ the rolling stone story about this, it’s really really fascinating…really needs to become a book and movie. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/the-secret-life-of-transgender-rocker-tom-gabel-20120531

  3. Is anyone buying this bullsh*t? This is publicity stunt if I’ve ever seen one. Tom Gabel, is quite a good joker.
