It's been a hell of a year for Against Me! singer Laura Jane Grace. After surviving the inevitable slings and barbs (and parental disowning) that came along with the public acknowledgment of her decision to live as a woman, a crowd surfing fan at last night's Against Me! show in North Carolina knocked out several of the front woman's teeth.
According to a fan post on the band's Facebook page, "[a] crowd surfer knocked a mic stand into her face, shattered teeth, she slammed her guitar on the ground, walked off stage, show abruptly ended, mid-song. other than that…it was amazing!"
Laura Jane herself took to Twitter to make sure that everyone understands it was an accident:
"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…" reads the first of several Tweets about the incident.
"I'm gonna start a kickstarter to get a diamond grill like Kanye," she added.
To add insult to injury, today just happens to be her birthday.
Below, watch the band perform the incendiary track Turn Those Clapping Hands Into Angry Balled Fists just before the incident. Also, take a second to wish Laura Jane Grace a happy birthday on Twitter.
