Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! is embarking on a short acoustic solo tour, and she’ll be stopping by Milkboy tonight to play some new material. Against Me! is releasing their new record, Transgender Dysphoria Blues sometime this year, which explores a lot of the struggles Grace (formerly Tom Gabel) went through as a transgender woman. To preview the album, Grace will be making the True Trans 7″ available on tour. Check out a performance of the new track “True Trans Soul Rebel” below.
Rhymesayers hip hop duo Atmosphere are playing a show at Festival Pier tonight as part of their Kickin’ Up Dust tour with reggae-dub rockers Slightly Stoopid.

Atmosphere recently released a new track called “Bob Seger” – take a listen below. You can find tickets and more information here.
