[ROCK] + MON., SEPT. 11
Over the past few years, Philly-based Sheer Mag has drawn praise for its vibrant, soulful rock. So much praise, in fact, that the group began to feel overhyped and didn’t sign with a record label or even start a Twitter account. It’s an endearing but unnecessary self-effacing gambit, since the band’s music is indeed hype-worthy. The latest album, Need to Feel Your Love, is upbeat rock that still has a bite. Also playing at Cattivo are dreamy, distorted San Franciscans Flesh World and Painted Eyes.
