Punk icon and activist Laura Jane Grace is coming to the Turf Club 4/7 with her band The Devouring Mothers. LJG is best known as the singer, songwriter, guitarist and founder for the punk rock band Against Me!. Grace is bringing her new project, The Devouring Mothers to the Turf Club for what is sure to be an unforgettable show.
Opening for LJG are Control Top and Mercy Union There are few tickets still available HERE.
Laura Jane Grace and The Devouring Mothers released their first LP Bought to Rot November 9, 2018. Featuring songs like “The Airplane Song”, “Manic Depression”, and “Apocalypse Now (& Later)”, the album features a new side of songwriting from Grace.
“Although it’s a step away from Against Me!’s sonic blueprint, there’s still a kinetic punk energy that vibrates throughout. These compositions are looser, stripped, but with a melodic pop immediacy pushing to the fore. The seeds of this project were initially sown when Grace, Hudson and Willard introduced the band on a small run of dates in 2016 that included Grace delivering impassioned readings of journal entries between stripped-down Against Me! songs, most of which were featured in her critically acclaimed memoir Tranny: Confessions Of Punk Rock’s Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout.” — BloodshotRecords.com.
Having recently seen Grace preform an acoustic show at SXSW, I would suggest NOT sleeping on this show. Grace is an excellent singer/songwriter and performer. The show at the Turf Club should be an awesome time.
