The Riot Before: Record Release Party Thursday 6/10/10 at Strange Matter

by | Jun 9, 2010 | MUSIC

Strange Matter, formerly known as 929, The Nanci Raygun, and Twisters, is once again hosting great shows and putting out great food and drinks (including a solid beer selection), and tomorrow night will be no exception. Richmond punk rock band The Riot Before is celebrating the release of their second LP, entitled “Rebellion,” and will be playing a full set with support from loud-rockers Worn in Red and fellow punk group The Great Explainer.

The Riot Before, whose members you’ve probably sat next to at one bar or another in Richmond, has been around since 2004, and has been likened to such bands as The Gaslight Anthem, Small Brown Bike, and Against Me! They also released a music video for their track “We Are Wild Stallions” in mid 2009.

The show kicks off at 9 PM, with a $5 entry fee. Merch will be available towards the back of the bar.
