Welcome to Strange Matter! Richmond, Virginia's home for the best in underground music, art, and culture, VEGAN FRIENDLY/CARNIVORE APPROVED eats, and the city's best classic arcade. Follow the links above or below to browse our menu or calendar of events, learn more about the space or the city, find tickets to our upcoming shows and more.
After a sellout gig with the almighty Menzingers this Summer, one of our favorite touring indie/pop/punk acts are coming back for more on the Monday night before Christmas and they'll be giving away FREE records (no joke!)! Anybody who buys a ticket in advance will get a tour exclusive 7" that you can redeem from the band at their merch table that very night! LEMURIA will
be touring alongside up-and-coming Austin power-poppers PRINCE (not that Prince!) and 2 newer locals including
CROSS EYED (members of Hold Tight!, Springtime and Family Cat) and VICTORY PARTY!
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.
Be sure to tune in to your Community Idea Station every Saturday at midnight for Midnight Frights.
