George
April 20, 2014 April 21, 2014

The Strombo Show will run the gamut this Sunday night, keeping the spirit of radio alive.

We'll be ranging over three hours of commercial-free music to honour both old and new. George Stroumboulopoulos will be joined by the lead singer-songwriter of the punk rock group Against Me!, Laura Jane Grace. We'll be welcoming her for an intimate conversation and an acoustic performance in the broom closet.

Her band recently delivered one of their most cohesive albums to date: Transgender Dysphoria Blues. One of this year's critical favourites, it explores transformation, the loss of a close friend and the perspectives of motherhood. And it offers anthems of liberation aplenty.

Since introducing herself as Laura Jane Grace in Rolling Stone magazine two years ago, Grace and her band have spent most of their time performing these songs on tour, and Grace has been undergoing hormone therapy. We're very excited to have her join us for the evening, spinning records and performing a few of her songs. (She also joined George in the red chair for an interview on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight.)

As always, we'll be tipping our hats to those ground-breakers and game-changers with a Nod to the Gods, spinning the best new tracks on the Magnificent Seven, paying tribute to Tom Waits on Ten with Tom and we'll send you into the collective horizontal with the Big Lie Down.

Get on in here! Join the collective.
