In its heyday in the early 1980s, Fishbone was the best live band in the world. Ask anyone who saw the band back then and they’ll tell you: Fishbone was a freaky fun force of nature. The group should have been huge, but like Richmond’s own Good Guys or Washington’s Bad Brains, it was too black in a white man’s rock world. During that time, a bunch of black musicians playing high-energy music to white audiences confused people. Anyway, that was then and this is now, and former Fishbone singer and saxophonist Angelo Moore is still an amazing performer. His new album, “Sacrifice,” is a righteous blend of funky soul and I have no doubt he’ll put on a show you don’t want to miss. Angelo Moore plays on Thursday, Dec. 19, at Strange Matter with Rebelmatic, Prop Anon and Kid Is Qual. Doors open at 9 p.m. Admission is $10 in advance and $12 at the door.
