Sheer Mag





A Fundraiser for the Philadelphia Student Union w/Sheer Mag, Bad Canoes & More at PhilaMOCA May 6

Will McAndrew (of R5 Productions) is curating a fundraiser show at PhilaMOCA to support the Philadelphia Student Union in its mission of banding students together to "demand a high quality education in the Philadelphia public school system." It's a tried and true method; there’s no better way to empower young people and bolster a youth movement than through the magical power of rock 'n' roll music. Guitarmony shred-rock titans Sheer Mag will be headlining the event, busting out riffs that they would never teach you in school. Dark Thoughts will also be performing in support of the students with their angsty, accelerated Ramones swagger, building heavy parallels in sound and objective to Rock 'n' Roll High School. Hopefully all buildings will be left intact. Bad Canoes, which features the unparalleled vocal stylings of Marissa Paternoster from Screaming Females, are also pitching in by bringing their outlandish, no-wave meets Slits-inspired rock 'n' roll to the stage. With songs that range in subject from bangin’ radio stations to meeting babes at the mall, each tune is delivered with a raw ferocity and jarring rejection of musical standards. On this lineup, they’re like that one disruptive kid in class who can always get the whole room going: disorderly and chaotic, but a welcome departure from the status quo. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $12, All Ages. - Bryce Woodcock





New Sheer Mag EP Available for Streaming & Purchase and New Music Video: "Nobody's Baby"

Yasss - what a nice surpise! Here's a new EP, III (Wilsuns RC/Static Shock Records), from garage-punks and former Deli Philly Artist of the Year, Sheer Mag. Starting tomorrow, the band will be spending most of its spring into summer on the road with stops at Coachella and Primavera Sound - DANG. And you can catch them back in town again on Tuesday, April 12 at DIY space Vox Populi, because that's how Philly rolls. You can also check out Sheer Mag's new music video for the track "Nobody's Baby," which was directed by Nancy Shirley.

New Track: "Can't Stop Fighting" - Sheer Mag

Sheer Mag have a new single, which they recently shared, entitled "Can't Stop Fighting." The song tackles the subject of violence and degredation directed towards women, and calls out those who idly standby, allowing it to happen. It's a battle cry that draws the line, waging war against a growing concern happening throughout the world.

Stay for the Long Haul w/Sheer Mag at Second Empire Aug. 5

With riffs that heat up in short explosive dashes meeting up with that rough-and-tumble backend and those vocals that ache and roar in a passionately committed display, that’s what Sheer Mag does. Tonight, as they prepare for a slate of tour dates, they’re at Second Empire, ready to unleash a tenacious, unrelenting brand of garage rock that rips, wails and stays with you for the long haul. A trio of Toronto-based punk bands are also on the docket, including the hardcore blitz of Mocoso, the garage-punk of Tonkapuma, and VCR, whom released a new EP 3D last week. Austin Latin-punk hybrid Detestados round out a lineup that’ll certainly curb that midweek attitude and gear you toward the week’s end. Second Empire, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more information.), 7pm, $8-$10, All Ages (Photo by Rob Menzer) - Michael Colavita
