This was the first time I saw Against Me! in concert and regret not seeing them sooner. The Paradise Rock Club in Boston is a gem to see a show–occupancy limit is under 1000 and there are two levels, so the view is close to the stage. I was lucky to find a spot behind the sound board, and they rocked hard the whole set.
They did a bunch of great songs from their catalog, “Pints Of Guinness Make You Strong” is an amazing song to hear and see live, as is “Teenage Anarchist” and “Transgender Dysphoria Blues”. They even did a two song tribute to Tom Petty, which was a nice change of pace.
The pix below kind of suck –I’m not a photographer and it’s a shitty camera phone, but figured someone else who was there might enjoy seeing these shots—-or someone who didn’t get to go. If you are a fan of rock, you need to check these guys out, so worth it…….

Once or twice a year, we release an extended mixtape, or a “jukebox” as we call it. The jukebox usually consists of 200 songs, usually clocking in at around 12-14 hours.
We call it a jukebox since it has a variety of styles from retro to new, well-known and up and coming, and rock, hip-hop/R&B and other.
This is the fifth jukebox we’ve done, and it’s so new we haven’t given it a proper name yet so stayed tuned…….
