“It made me feel validated,” she said of last year’s outing. “It was like, ‘You see? This is what I do.’ ”Venus de Mars rises again

Last year's tour with Against Me! helped catapult Minneapolis' transgender rock vet out of an audit hole and refocus her 20-year career.
http://www.startribune.com/entertainment/music/298162101.html

The tour in question was with the long-celebrated Florida punk band Against Me!, which suddenly turned the rock ’n’ roll world’s eye toward transgenderism.

Against Me! singer Laura Jane Grace (formerly Tom Gabel) made a very public coming-out as transgender in a 2012 Rolling Stone article and subsequent interviews, which led up to the release of one of last year’s most powerful rock albums. When the time came to hit the road for the first time as a transgender rocker, the Against Me! frontwoman turned to Venus to open some of the shows.

“I imagine when you’re making that kind of big decision in your music career, you look to see who else has done it,” Venus said. “I think I probably rise to the top in that case.”

"The record strips away the loud guitars and heavy thrashing of All the Pretty Horses’ music for a purely raw sound. Its only instruments besides acoustic guitar are cello and violin. Against Me! singer Grace guests on the song “Take My Shoulder,” one of several older All the Pretty Horses songs reworked for the collection. The album also includes two new tunes and covers of the Roy Orbison/Nazareth hit “Love Hurts” and “5 Years” by one of Venus’ obvious heroes, David Bowie."

"Things are better now on several fronts, she happily reported.

“I’m thrilled with the attitude of young kids,” she said, describing scenes at the always all-ages Against Me! tour in which young transgender and gay fans stood side-by-side with older, brawnier fans of the band — and sometimes even with their own parents."
