Check out my interview with the wonderful Tyson Galloway !

We’re gonna chat about balancing priorities (like being a professional musician AND a dad AND a husband AND a music teacher), making music as a means of being well, teaching music, and being a man who is invested in learning about feminism.

    Deviants and the Odd Man Out are a three-piece, ear-influenced grunge band who writes original songs, plays locally often, and loves to have fun and get their message out. 

    Their brand new album, “Sink or Swim”, is officially being released June 2, but you can buy it starting NOW. Contact the band via social media to get a copy!

    From Gareth Vieira’s interview with Zoey on Dispatches From a Small Town: “If we can even show 1, 2, 3 people it’s okay to be who you are and that you can do normal things, maybe we can have some influence on the next generation behind us. Honestly, at the end of the day, we just love playing music.”

Searching For a Former Clarity” by Against Me!

againstme-1403195391.jpg

“One fan wanted to know which older Against Me! songs referenced Grace’s wish to transition before she did. She said, “‘Searching for a Former Clarity’ with the line, ‘Confessing childhood secrets of dressing up in women’s clothes. Compulsions I never knew the reasons to.’ Both ‘The Disco Before the Breakdown’ and ‘Tonight We’re Gonna Give It 35%’ are about gender dysphoria. ‘Pretty Girls,’ pretty much all of [Against Me!’s 2005 album] Searching for a Former Clarity is about it, I guess, except for the obvious anti-war songs. At the time, the band was facing intense scrutiny from the punk scene about the politics of what label we were or weren’t on. That album was me saying, ‘I don’t even care about these things. Do you really want to know how it feels on the inside right now and what I’m really thinking about?'” – Rolling Stone

 

I’m a Transvest-lite” by NOFX

“We have a song on the album called I’m a Transvest-lite where I talk about crossdressing and how I secretly did it when I was a teenager. And now I’m open about it.

After this record, pretty much all my secrets are out there, so I’ve lost all pride and shame, which are two things no one really should have.”  – Fat Mike via CBC
