Life Of Agony’s Mina Caputo will be performing with Against Me! during the 2017 Alternative Press Music Awards at the Keybank State Theater in Cleveland, OH on July 17. This will be the first time both transgender singers will share the stage together.
“Songwriters like Laura [Jane Grace] demonstrate how internal struggles comprise great American artists. Her artistic impact is obvious to us all. She’s been pioneering in her genre for years now, becoming a vital messenger of artistic truth, a musical raconteur, and an unbelievable humanitarian. I am extremely honored and humbled to share the stage with Laura and Against Me! at the APMAs!
I’m so excited…in a way, it vindicates my own personal struggles, for when another artist asks you to share an important moment in their own career, that’s when you recognize shift is in the air. Also, I can’t think of anyone else who is more deserving for this special Icon award. I am ecstatic for her and all of her personal and musical achievements. She deserves the world.”
