If gritty garage rock is your proverbial cup of F-you, you should check out In the Red Records recording artist Cheap Time. The group serves up brilliantly combative takes on the time-honored four-four on its latest release, “Wallpaper Music.” Gleefully obstinate, the Nashville-based assault system fronted by Jeffrey Novak mixes Velvet Underground’s sleazy soul, the spunky combativeness of Jay Retard and classic ’60s garage to make the old sound new again. Along for the show are kindred Richmond spirits Hot Dolphin, Gunboat and Banshee Beat, playing Sunday, Sept. 22, at Strange Matter. Doors open for the 18-and-older show at 9 p.m. Admission is $8. strangematterrva.com.
