March Calendar

After seeing Portland's WITCH MOUNTAIN in the fall with Nik Turner's Hawkwind, we thought we'd seen the last of them for some time. At the peak of their musical career, longtime vocalist Uta Plotkin quit the band and they were unsure what step was next. Out of nowhere, we found out they got a new east-coast based singer in 19 year old Kayla Dixon. We've watched the rehearsal videos, read the interview and are officially stoked to see what they bring to the table with this solidified new lineup. They'll be playing alongside RVA's newest doom merchants, SLOWING (ex/current-The Catalyst, Crater, Soft Time, SYA), who fuse country influences and amazing clean vocals ala Across Tundras, U.S. Christmas and other southern leaning doom crews. Rounding out the lineup will be fellow heavyweights in Charlottesville's BELDAM on their first appearance on the Strange Matter stage!

WITCH MOUNTAIN, SLOWING & BELDAM will be at Strange Matter tonight Wednesday, March 25th!

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!
