On the heels of the release of their seventh full-length album, Shape Shift With Me, Laura Jane Grace, self proclaimed “True Trans Soul Rebel” and front woman of the punk rock outfit Against Me!, kicked the shit out of Irving Plaza with Bad Religion on the SECOND night of being sold out in New York City. Clearly the big apple needed a dose of punk rock and both bands fed it to their faces for many die hards were coming back for seconds. The crowd surfed and moshed their way through a couple of monster sets with Grace joining Bad Religion on “Television.” It was the perfect storm, and no one left the Plaza looking the same as when they came in.
