Sheer Mag Are Headed to San Antonio to Remind Us of What Real Rock 'N' Roll Is

There's not a whisper of anything “indie” about Philadelphia band Sheer Mag. Which is a good thing.

There are some danceable pop moments to the music, but the real star are its riffs — so stanky and bluesy they make you want to slap someone. There's also a taste of both punk and '70s rock in the songwriting, which adds a touch of nostalgia without making the band sound dated.

Add in the soulful, attitude-drenched vocals of Christina Halladay and you've got the whole rock package.

Catch Sheer Mag in San Antonio at its newly announced Paper Tiger gig on Friday, September 27.

Tickets ($5-$10) go on sale Friday, June 21 and can be purchased here. Get our top picks for the best events in San Antonio every Thursday morning. Sign up for our Events Newsletter.
