Ever lose your teeth in your dreams? Against Me!’s frontwoman Laura Jane Grace lived a nightmare at a recent gig. On Tuesday night at North Carolina’s Soapbox Lounge, a fan reportedly kicked Grace’s microphone into her mouth, shattering her front teeth (via NME).

Punknews.org points to the band’s Facebook page, where one fan, Matthew Herzog, reports:

I seriously fucking apologize on behalf of those douchebags that stormed the stage and stopped the show tonight. Please don’t think we’re all anything like those few assholes. Up until that point you guys were beyond sick. Ever since I heard the news in the summer I’d been waiting to see Laura and it was insanely surreal. I hope she’s okay and I hope you guys can still come back in the future.

Grace has also responded to the incident on her Twitter account:

Though, this traumatic experience has hardly thwarted her sense of humor:

In related news, Grace is currently working on Transgender Dysmorphia Blues, their highly-anticipated follow up to 2010’s White Crosses. Bassist Andy Seward spoke with MTV Hive at last weekend’s Fun Fun Fun Festival about the album, stating, “It just sounds fucking killer. I don’t know if ‘brutal’ is the right word, but it just sounds really fucking tough, and good.” Stream a recent performance of the album’s titular track below.
