Against Me!

With its classic Butch Vig-produced 2007 album “New Wave,” Against Me! stepped up as one of the best throwback, fist-in-the air, riff-and-roar punk bands in 20-some years. With its latest album, “Transgender Dysphoria Blues,” the Florida quartet arguably steps out as one of the most daring, socially challenging punk bands of all time. The record chronicles frontwoman Laura Jane Grace’s transformation from the former Tom Gabel in surprisingly frank and universal ways. During their riveting SXSW shows two weeks ago, though, Grace & Co. proved that surprisingly little else has changed. Laura Stevenson of the punk collective Bomb the Music Industry and Michigan trio Cheap Girls open. Chris Riemenschneider
