Come Along for the Ride w/Sheer Mag at The Farm Jan. 3

Come Along for the Ride w/Sheer Mag at The Farm Jan. 3

“What do you want? What do you want me to do?” Christina Halladay (formerly of The Shakes) vociferates on the opening track of Sheer Mag’s debut EP 7”. And that’s not the only song where Halladay vents some frustration. On “Point Breeze,” she roars, “I want somebody to love,” and closes the track with barks of ““Aye-aye-aye-yeah!” With a rawness in her voice (probably due to all that whiskey drinking), Halladay helps create Sheer Mag’s distinctive sound: that kind of fast and loud garage rock with pop hooks. There’s much-appreciated tambourine throughout the LP and guitar riffs aplenty that are something to celebrate. While there are only four songs on 7”, that’s more than enough to get you hooked on Sheer Mag and pumped for some new material. They’ll be playing with one man punk Philly act The Holidays at The Farm on Saturday, along with Arm, Glue, Proxy, and Aseptic. It’s looking very promising for these Philly rockers, catch them at the beginning of their ride. The Farm, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7pm, $7-$10, All Ages - Emily DiCicco
