The Cales

Before the Internet, zines — the abbreviated name for self-published, do-it-yourself magazines — were how you found out about music, culture and art in the underground. They continue to be a vital component in breaking new writers, musicians and artists into broader audiences. On Tuesday, June 10, Strange Matter is host to a benefit for Richmond Zine Fest, the annual October event that hosts zine-makers from around the world in our humble Southern abode. On tap are Richmond groups Mensroom, New Turks, the Cales and Flesh Control, as well as a screening of the Floridian 1988 psycho-punk splatter comedy, “Twisted Views,” directed by Charles Pinion. The night of subterrestrial delights begins at 8 p.m. Admission is a suggested donation of $5-$10. strangematterrva.com.
