Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace was hit in the face with a microphone at a gig this week, knocking out a couple of teeth.

The transgender punk singer, formerly known as Tom Gabel, shattered her front teeth after a microphone was accidentally kicked into her mouth by a fan at the gig at the Soapbox Lounge in Wilmington, North Carolina on Wednesday (November 7).

According to Punknews.org, the incident occurred when a group of fans stormed the stage with one accidentally knocking the microphone into her face. Laura Jane Grace reportedly then threw her guitar at the rowdy group, with one fan commenting that he hoped "the guy is feeling every bit of it in hospital this morning".

Responding to the incident on Twitter, Laura Jane Grace seemed relatively unfazed by the whole in episode, writing: "For those asking, last night my mic was kicked into my face and it shattered a couple of teeth. It was an accident, but still really hurt. I'm also pretty upset about the idea of reconstructive dental surgery."

The singer then joked that she was considering the possibilities of getting a new grill, adding:



In May, Grace played her first gig as a woman in San Diego, where she debuted tracks from the band's forthcoming album 'Transgender Dysphoria Blues'. The singer is currently undergoing the transition from man to woman and is taking hormones and undergoing electrolysis treatments.
