Richmond's Strange Matter Is Closing The Venue Doors at the End of This Year

Richmond's DIY-esque venue, Strange Matter, an institution for nearly 10 years has announced online that they're closing their doors this year. Fans and Richmonders alike could not believe the news, myself included. I'm still processing the loss of a venue that was so diverse in genre, crowds, and staff. I shot some of my first concerts at Strange Matter, helped out with shows my team members put on at Strange Matter, and met some of my best friends in the crowds.

I want to be able to give this venue a proper goodbye, somehow - so I'm inviting you all to tell us about your time at Strange Matter. Performer or audience member, it doesn't matter we want to hear what Smatter meant to you. Fill out our form below, or send us an email at
