Reading & Leeds 2015: Against Me! feel right at home on the Reading main stage

“We stand against all the things that punk rock should stand against.”

Gender Is Over.

That’s the message Laura Jane Grace has chosen to wear as she takes to the Reading main stage. And while in no way should the significance of what her, and Against Me!’s, presence on the biggest platform in British rock music be even slightly ignored, it’s a statement that works on more than one level.

Against Me! aren’t only important because of their frontwoman. They’re important because they’re a really, really, really good band. And today, they’re not going to miss out on the opportunity to show it. From opener ‘True Trans Soul Rebel’ onwards, they’re a blistering, challenging force.

“We stand against all the things that punk rock should stand against,” Grace exclaims. Above anyone else who’ll play Reading this weekend, from her, you believe it.
