Sheer Mag

From the event description:

Sheer Mag’s dizzying rise initiated in 2014, when the Philadelphia band self-released the first of three seven-inches and started playing the Northeastern DIY circuit. Ironically, the music stood apart because it sounded so familiar. Indebted to ‘70s arena rock, power-pop and proto-metal, Sheer Mag’s songs reminded a lot of us of the music we grew up with, but maybe couldn’t relate to because it was big, brash and unapologetically macho. Sheer Mag reclaimed some of that energy without perpetuating the toxicity.

When: Saturday, Sept. 21, 8 p.m.-Sunday, Sept. 22, 1:30 a.m.
Where: The Ritz, 400 S. First St.
Admission: $13-$15
