Two Nights of Against Me!June 3rd, 2011
Punk music comes from all over the country (and the world, really), but in the case of Against Me!, it comes from Florida—first Naples and then Gainesville. Seventeen-year-old Tom Gabel started the band as a solo project but would perform live with others. Four years later, in 2001, Against Me! became a full band with the addition of another guitarist, a drummer and a bassist. The lineup has changed over the years, but new albums, folk-inflected punk and touring have continued, which brings Against Me! (above, playing “Ache with Me” for RollingStone.com) to Music Hall of Williamsburg on Sunday and Webster Hall next Tuesday.
