July Calendar

RADIOACTIVITY is a continuation of The Novice, Jeff Burke's band while living in Japan. Jeff has since moved back to Texas, and out of respect to the Japanese lineup of the band, has changed the name to RADIOACTIVITY. Some of these songs are re-purposed Novice tracks, while others are brand new. Jeff is one of the most distinctive songwriters in the punk rock underground, and these songs will sound instantly familiar to any fans of The Marked Men or Potential Johns. Band members include Jeff Burke, Mark Ryan, and Gregory Rutherford, whose credits read like an all-star lineup of Texas punk and garage rock royalty, including members of The Marked Men, Mind Spiders, Bad Sports, Wax Museums, The Reds, VIDEO, and The Novice. We're excited to bring them through with the help of VINYL CONFLICT RECORD STORE on their first Richmond gig alongside an all-star cast of some of our favorite locals, CLOAK/DAGGER, SUNDIALS and CHERRY PITS!! CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS!

RADIOACTIVITY, CLOAK/DAGGER, SUNDIALS & CHERRY PITS will be at Strange Matter on Sunday, August 2nd!
