September calendar

By now, you should all know that a Strange Matter & VINYL CONFLICT RECORD STORE gig ain't nothin' to fuck with, and this September we are bringing one of our favorite punk acts to town, Slaughter And The Dogs! Going hard since '76, these UK punks sound as killer as ever and Richmond is very lucky to get to witness one of their only East coast gigs. The lineup on this one came together about as ridiculously as it possibly could with reunions from the sorely-missed SOUTHSIDE STRANGLERS, THE EUROTICS and a very rare appearance by CLOAK/DAGGER. If you know the backstory on these bands, you know this is quite the special occasion and we couldn't be more pleased to bring it your way! CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS!

Slaughter And The Dogs, SOUTHSIDE STRANGLERS, CLOAK/DAGGER & THE EUROTICS will be playing on Tuesday, September 23rd at ye olde Smatter. CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS!

STRANGE MATTER T-SHIRTS EXIST! Thanks to our good buddy Will Towles for this badass artwork. Pick one up at the bar for $12.50!

Many thanks to our pal Armistead Spottswoode over at WCVE's Midnight Frights for producing this cool little spot extolling our many virtues. All you dingleberries on iPhones (or any dingleberries who can't see the embedded video) should click here.
