Life Of Agony’s Mina Caputo To Perform With Against Me! At 2017 ‘Alternative Press Music Awards’


Transgender vocalists Mina Caputo (Life Of Agony) and Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!) will be performing together for the first time at the upcoming Alternative Press Music Awards (aka the ‘Journeys Alternative Press Music Awards fueled by Monster Energy‘.) That event will now be held at the Keybank State Theater in Cleveland, OH on July 17th. Grace will also be presented with the Icon Award during the the awards show. Caputo will apparently be joining Against Me! for a performance during the show and commented:

“Songwriters like Laura 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.”
