Against Me! @ Wonderland Ballroom [Sunday Dec. 4th]

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

I am hungover and sort of miserable after last night's awesome Subways' show, so this show preview is going to be short. Against Me! are perhaps the best punk band in America right now; they are more or less our generation's version of The Clash. Their new album, Seaching For A Former Clarity, is full of gravely-voiced, sing-along punk anthems that attack scene politics and the administration running this country. Tonight's show starts at 6:30 p.m.

Audio: "From Her Lips to God's Ears (The Energizer)"

I totally didn't like the new Against Me! initially, but as I've listened to it more, it's grown on me.

As far as being this generation's Clash, I can see what you mean, but I think we'll have to give them a few more years before deciding if it's accurate. AM!, like The Clash, have ventured into new territory on each record, as far as musically, though the politics aren't as diverse, and AM! is more suited to an intimate club setting whereas The Clash playing huge shows made more sense.
