Against Me! returned to St. Louis on Thursday, September 19, 2013 with Off With Their Heads and Hop Along for a sweaty show at the Firebird. The Florida band's latest EP is titled True Trans -- a reference to singer Laura Jane Grace's recent coming-out as a woman.

Last night's crowd sang along with all three bands on the bill, and Off With Their Heads dealt with a smoking amplifier during its set. For those wondering, the singing voice of Against Me! singer Laura Jane Grace (born Thomas James Gabel) hasn't changed a bit since her newly assumed gender, reports photographer Jason Stoff. (Over here, you can see the full Against Me! St. Louis photo gallery, too.)
