The gritty New Jersey comes to Chicago in October on its extensive U.S. tour. The rock group that draws influence from Springsteen and the Replacements will release its fifth studio album Get Hurt, described by singer Brian Fallon as "completely different than anything we had ever done before." So tropical disco then? Do you remember when you were young and wanted to set the world on fire? If not, Against Me!'s punk rock music will certainly remind you of angstier days when nothing mattered and you were always right. The band's powerful latest, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, deals with singer Laura Jane Grace's, well, just what the title says.
