Against Me! to Play Cannery Ballroom Oct. 20 with Bleached & The Dirty Nil


Fresh off a run of arena dates supporting Green Day (during which we snuck to Memphis to catch an amazingly intimate off-day show), and currently in the midst of a lengthy international tour, seminal punk outfit Against Me! show no signs of slowing down, following the release of their fantastic seventh full-length, Shape Shift With Me, last fall.

As we noted ahead of their recent Memphis date, the band haven’t played Music City proper since both a headlining and co-headling show in 2014, and, while we also got a chance to see them at Forecastle in 2014, Bonnaroo in 2015, and Shaky Knees in 2016, we’ve been holding out for an inevitable Nashville return. Fortunately, a new run of dates leading up to their headlining spot at Gainesville’s The Fest (where they’ll play their classic Reinventing Axl Rose in its entirety), have just been announced, which’ll finally bring the group to Cannery Ballroom on Oct. 20!

Against Me! alone, one of the best and most important punk bands in the world today, are cause for excitement, but making this show even more essential is the inclusion of LA punks Bleached and Canadian alt rockers The Dirty Nil, two of our favorite up and coming acts. Tickets for what is already a likely contender for one of the best shows of the year will go on sale this Friday, May 12 at 10 a.m. CDT right here (with a pre-sale beginning a day earlier), and if you consider yourself a punk fun to any capacity, you should probably snag them.
