Very humbled to host Riding Easy Records’ and Portland, Oregon’s blunt scythe of “street-doom,” R.I.P.! These riff merchants are coming to rock RVA to it’s core! The newest LP on RER closes the casket on the trends and exhumes the notion that doom isn’t about how slow and de-tuned you can play, but about fear, death, leather and playing as heavy as possible!! They’ll be joined by fellow road-dawgs PLAQUE MARKS, a killer punk-driven noise rock act from Philly featuring current and ex members of Creepoid, Fight Amp, Ecstatic Vision and Powder Room who last played town opening for the mighty Unsane, also here at Strange Matter! Also playing will be a pair of local noise-punks with PRAYER GROUP (ex/current-Gifts From Enola, Burn/Ward, New Turks) and SWATHE (current/ex Slump, Stake, Captie, Claim Culture). This is surely one of the underground sleeper hits of the summer!!
