Laura Jane Grace plays a show at Four Seasons Total Landscaping
One of the most iconic images of Donald Trump’s downfall last November was his attorney and incredible melting human, Rudy Guiliani, being given the news that every TV network in America – including Fox News – had called the election for Joe Biden in the car park of Four Seasons Total Landscaping in Philadelphia. It was a booking cock-up that would live in hilarious infamy – how does one accidentally secure a garden centre next to a dildo shop instead of a hotel with a similar name? – and give the administration the send-off it deserved.
“I’ve played Giants Stadium. I’ve played Wembley. Sang onstage with Cyndi Lauper. Written songs with Weezer. Been onstage with Joan Jett. None of that compares to this,” she told the audience. “I’m 40 years old and I can draw a bigger crowd than Rudy, and I have more Twitter followers than Donald fucking Trump, which isn’t fucking so bad for a transgender high school dropout.
“It’s been fun both imagining how this is all going to play out and then also just like imagining Four Seasons as a company, thinking about the strife and the drama that must go on internally,” Laura added. “There’s probably like the one side of the company, or the friends of the company, who are like, ‘You all lost your way, man! You used to be about cutting grass.’”
The 17-song set featured a mix of Against Me! and solo songs, as well as a crowdsurfing cardboard Rudy. Watch clips from one of the least likely gigs ever below…
