September calendar

We've got a soft spot for ASTRONAUTALIS from seeing him play in random Main St bars, clubs and houses (even one where Andy worked in a part of his freestyle so a friend could propose marriage) back in the day to following his rise through today. We are stoked to have his incredible skills on our stage backed with a full band this time through! He will be bringing his friend SARAH JAFFE from Texas and cohort TRANSIT from Canada on his first RVA appearance in years! In continuing to stack his current tour with maximum friends, Andy has added STAGE to the bill!

ASTRONAUTALIS will be playing on Thursday, September 18th at ye olde Smatter.

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.
