Sheer Mag on the Right Path at Golden Tea House Aug. 18

Sheer Mag on the Right Path at Golden Tea House Aug. 18

They haven’t released their debut 7" yet, which is scheduled to arrive next month, but Sheer Mag is a band that appears on the right path. Having caught our attention with a garage-rock vibe that assembles itself around vocals dripping with strong-willed attitude and guitar riffs that reinforce that emotion, the female-fronted group produces a sound that is equals parts catchy riff and groove-fueled yet still possesses that raw indulgent sensibility. It's grit with a purpose. Tonight, at Golden Tea House, they’ll be joined on the lineup by fellow emo/punk-pop hybrid The Spirit of the Beehive, who will also be coincidently releasing new material this fall. In the meantime, “Tulsa, OK” is an excellent teaser of a lo-fi power-pop explosion. Singer-songwriter Liam Betson (Titus Andronicus), who released a folky, penetrating album The Cover of Hunter, will also be joining the bill with New York rockers LVL UP. Golden Tea House, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info), 8pm, $5-$7, All Ages - Michael Colavita
