Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace to Receive APMA’s Icon Award
Against Me! frontwoman is going to receive the Icon Award at this year’s AP Music Awards. The ceremony takes place on July 17 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.
Three years ago Laura Jane Grace presented the same award to Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. “It’s really surreal!” said Grace in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Only three years ago I was handing off this statue to Joan, and now you’re telling me someone’s going to be handing me that little statue?”
Grace also said that Against Me! will perform at the awards show and hinted that an interesting collaboration might happen during their performance. She said: “I want to make something cool happen. A lot of that depends on who else is going to be there, and who could come there just because of where it is. I think our only limitations are who can be physically present.”
AP Awards 2017 have announced a list of performers that includes Grace’s Against Me!, Korn, Machine Gun Kelly, Sleeping With Sirens, Pierce The Veil and All Time Low. The list of nominees has names like the Pretty Reckless, Blink 182, Green Day, Fall Out Boy, Sum 41, Deftones, Creeper and many others.
