August Calendar

We feel like music is the best form of escape for all sorts of people and here at Strange Matter we try to book the most diverse calendar we can and celebrate art made by people of all walks of life. We're very excited to team up with the folks over at SOUR PRESENTS to bring you a night of queer and feminist punk and indie music headlined by the return of the amazing KITTEN FOREVER! These 10 year Minneapolis veteran fuzz-punks blew our collective minds when they opened for Babes In Toyland and arguably stole the show that night! They are coming back through with Clara from Babes In Toyland's other band ROYAL BRAT who play a similarly socially aware and ripping brand of punk. Also joining this bill will be Don Giovanni recording artists IZZY TRUE who play a more stripped down and heart-on-their-sleeve indie rock and local killers BAD MAGIC, led by one of the strongest voices in our scene Julie Karr! This show is stacked and we've just added SPORTS BRA! So, definitely don't skip over this one just because it's a Monday because it's sure to be amazing! CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS!

KITTEN FOREVER, ROYAL BRAT, IZZY TRUE, BAD MAGIC & SPORTS BRA are coming to Strange Matter on Monday, August 8th! 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!
