  • Soft Metals
Soft Metals want to get in your pants. Most electronic music does, but the analog seductions favored by this Los Angeles-based duo strive for love while most flounder listlessly in lust. Singer Patricia Hall’s atmospheric titillations bob and weave in and out of Ian Hicks’ organic mix of kraut rock, synth and techno-inspired sequences to create a sound worth undressing for. Soft Metals bring their sensual synthesizer seductions to Strange Matter on Wednesday, Sept. 4, with Richmond chill wave pushers Flossed in Paradise, the Mazzy Star inspirations of Negative Gemini and lo-fi, disco punk of Short Skirts setting the slyly sexual mood before they hit the stage. If you’re looking to get laid on a Wednesday night, this is the best musical option to help you get some. It’s called hump day, after all. Doors open for the 18-and-older show open at 9 p.m. and the music starts at 10. Admission is $8. strangematterrva.com.
