The latest BrooklynVegan Red Bull Sound Select show happened Friday night at Asbury Park’s Stone Pony (9/4). Against Me! headlined and they were awesome as always. Laura Jane Grace, new-ish drummer Atom Willard (of Rocket From the Crypt and Angels & Airwaves fame) and the whole band are seasoned professionals, so tight and barely pausing between songs. The Transgender Dysphoria Blues stuff is almost two years old now, but it still sounds fresh, and we got no lack of old favorites either. Plus, they played a cover of The Replacements’ “Androgynous” which Laura Jane Grace said she wanted to do because she saw Joan Jett cover the song at that venue ten years ago. (Laura and Joan also recently covered that song together with Miley Cyrus.) The place was packed and there was hardly a moment where the majority of the crowd wasn’t going insane.

Before Against Me! it was rapper Cakes Da Killa. We weren’t sure how putting Cakes before Against Me! would go over, and Cakes seemed a bit worried about it too, but we shouldn’t have worried. He almost stole the show. Cakes knows how to work a crowd and his humor and talent speak for themselves. The full room was cheering him and his dancers on through the whole set, and some even danced. At the end he even jumped into the crowd to finish a song. Catch Cakes again this month at Knitting Factory with Rome Fortune (another $3 RBSS show).

Opening the night was powerful punk trio Big Eyes, who (like at our April BV-RBSS shows with The Menzingers) were impossibly tight. Catch them again five times in the next month.

Against Me!

Thanks to all the bands, Red Bull, The Stone Pony, and everyone who came out. Hopefully you grabbed one of the free limited edition posters on your way out.
