The first footage has emerged of Against Me! singer-guitarist Tom Gabel making her live debut as Laura Jane Grace at a concert in San Diego on Friday.

Earlier this year, Gabel revealed to Rolling Stone he was undergoing a sex change and changing his name to Laura Jane Grace, after suffering from gender dysmorphia for several years.

Against Me! played for 40 minutes in their support slot for British rockers The Cult as part of Humphreys Concerts By The Bay series. According to Rolling Stone, they played six new songs, including one called Transgender Dysphoria Blues, which is said to be the title of their forthcoming album.

Grace was apparently decked out in a loose-fitting black tank top, tight black jeans, and wearing lots of, you guessed it…black eye shadow.

The singer mentioned after the show that she was worried fans would expect to see her come on stage dressed as a fairytale character.

“I was worried that some people expected me to come out looking like Little Bo Peep or something”, she said.
