Power Trip at The Ritz

In Music
HEAVY PEACE: Power Trip & Sheer Mag both bring progressive politics (and fun) to heavy music.

HEAVY PEACE: Power Trip & Sheer Mag both bring progressive politics (and fun) to heavy music.

A dream tour for anyone who likes heavy music but doesn’t care for the machismo, Power Trip and Sheer Mag are for the people. While the metal genre can be a little cliquey and alienating, the Texas thrashers in Power Trip are refreshingly fun and inclusive—and they still tear through riffs like wet tissue. Then there’s supporting act Sheer Mag, who swipe the DNA of ’70s hard rock and give it back to the outcasts. On standout track “Suffer Me,” frontwoman Tina Halladay whoops and hollers through a garage-glam sneer over the top of raspy, harmonizing lead guitars.
