Against Me! and Laura Jane Grace Hit 'Late Night'

Against Me! and Laura Jane Grace Hit 'Late Night'
Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace released her brand new memoir Tranny: Confessions of Punk Rock's Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout only days ago, a book we called a cathartic, well-written and satisfying confession. Last night (November 16), Grace and the band made a return appearance to Late Night With Seth Meyers to talk about the book and to perform as musical guests.

Before tearing their way through Shape Shift with Me cut "333," Grace spoke with Meyers about journal writing and her plans to burn her notes, the strangest venues the band have played in, and why she chose the "tranny" slur as the title of her memoir.

"I hate that word, I definitely don't identify with that word, I don't like hearing it used for other people," Grace explained. "It's almost mentally taxing to look at my book in ways, but it captures a lot of what the book is about. And a lot of what the book is about is internalized transphobia and self-hate and that's an experience that I had and I went through."

She continued: "There's a certain amount of reclamation … of saying the thing about yourself that you fear the most, or you hate the most before anyone else can say it. But again, don't judge a book by its cover, just read the book and hopefully you'll see why it fits."
