Ahead of the new Against Me! album, singer Laura Jane Grace (formerly Tom Gabel) headed out on a solo tour that wraps up in NYC tonight (8/16) at Bowery Ballroom (tickets).

The tour first hit NYC last night (8/15) for a sold out show at Knitting Factory Brooklyn. Both last night's show and tonight's show were/are being opened by another transgender punk singer, Mina Caputo (formerly Keith Caputo of Life of Agony), and Allison Weiss. Pictures and a video from last night's show are in this post.

To preview the new Against Me! album and this tour, the band released a two-track free EP on their website. It's no longer available to download, but take a listen to the powerful closing track, "True Trans Soul Rebel," along with more pictures and the video from the Knitting Factory show, below...
