Sheer Terror, Poison Idea, Longknife, Bigfoot Accelerator, Fought Alone

DAVE CANTOR
8 pm, Saturday July 12 | $15.
Star Theater
13 NW 6th Ave.
 

[GNARLY CROSSOVER] Sheer Terror, an ’80s NYC crossover act, opens Just Can’t Hate Enough with a pissed-off declamation against skinhead culture, with lyrics lamenting being a working-class mope. Disconnect aside, the band throws down a metallic gambit akin to Cro-Mags. A lack of consistent recording, though, accounts for the ensemble’s relative anonymity. Just Can’t, Sheer Terror’s first long-player after a few self-released tapes, didn’t show up until 1990, about a half-decade into its career. The troupe’s latest, 2013’s Kaos for Kristin, serves as a benefit for a friend’s family, offering a handful of Sham 69 covers. It’s an admirable move from a band of tough guys.
