STRANGE MATTER is proud to welcome TEXTBEAK, a dark electronic/industrial veteran artist who has spent time in RVA but is now based out of Cleveland. In addition to running Hexx9, releasing music through tons of labels, he's accompanied a who's who of the goth scene and it's a pleasure to have them back in RVA. They're touring with SEARMANAS, the solo moniker of electronic producer Niabi Aquena formerly of VA, she's now based in NYC and brings her dark electronic and industrial sounds back to her former home. Locally they'll be joined by MURDERIZER, aka Kleo Latham, a two decade Richmond resident serving up her recent music project,. True to form, the beats, bass, ethereal vocals, and improvisation impregnate the project. This eclectic and misanthropic night will be completed with one more act TBA very soon!
