Sheer Mag, Haram, Public Acid 

When: Thu., Aug. 24, 9 p.m. 2017
Price: $13-$15

There are some wrong-headed people who will insist that there's no good protest or punk music anymore, but they don't need to look any further than Philadelphia's Sheer Mag, which offers both punk and protest in one magnificent package. In July, the band finally released its debut record, Need to Feel Your Love, which kicks off with the inviting and invigorating "Meet Me in the Street." The song is a fearless call to arms, with frontwoman Tina Halladay sneering, "When you nip at their heels they wanna come on strong/Nothing to do but keep battlin' on and on and on." From a solid, guitar-driven punk foundation, the band spices up its songs with seventies-sounding grooviness; "Suffer Me" swings with sass as Halladay sings, "You've got to let me be and keep me out of your fantasy." In a world that feels sorely lacking in love, Sheer Mag's work feels vital, and live, the band is a forceful thrill. Sheer Mag will surely help soothe what ails you. Haram and Public Acid open. —Allison Hussey
