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





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
