This event is all ages

We're pleased to have the guy himself, DARWIN DEEZ back at Strange Matter for round #3 this Fall! Darwin and friends are an infectious indie-pop act from Chapel Hill, now based in Brooklyn who "one member at a time grew from a solo performance project to a full-on four-piece force for peace!" Incorporating dancing and crowd interaction is what double D does best and this is sure to be a night of all smiles just like the prior two. If you aren't familiar we suggest digging into his deep catalog both on Lucky Number and self-released! Just announced, he'll be supported by Philly's amazing JOY AGAIN!

“Anna Wintour, Jimmy Iovine, Barack Obama. What do these people all have in common? They all fly on airplanes. There are 102,465 airline flights per day, and if we can become the first band synonymous with air travel, nothing can stop us.”
-Joy Again

Joy Again is a Philadelphia based 5-piece founded in 2015. The band, whose founding members met in boarding school, has released debut singles on Mom + Pop (U.S.) and Lucky Number (U.K.). Their latest effort, “EP” (which can be heard at https://joyagain.bandcamp.com), was released on Never Grow Up Records in early 2017, followed by a supporting East Coast U.S./Canadian tour.

They have performed alongside acts like Car Seat Headrest, Hinds, Daywave, and Hoops, making festival appearances at 35 Denton, Savannah Stopover, and SXSW.

Their unadulterated sound and seemingly effortless command of melody and vivid storytelling have charmed both the internet underground and media outlets NME and FADER, among others.

Their association with Engineer/Producer Caleb Laven (Frank Ocean's Blonde & Endless) and visual artist AXIÖM Lë FØU has helped drive their creative vision and propel their artistic output beyond the underground.
But make no mistake, Joy Again’s distinct balance of genre-hopping and purity is all their own.

They are currently playing shows and crafting their first full-length release.
