It’s really hard to get people to go out to see a show on a Monday. That’s the dilemma facing Strange Matter. With weekend warriors spent from checking out must-see shows by New Orleans party-starters Quinton and Miss Pussycat on Saturday and emo chameleons Sorority Noise on Sunday, how do they rally the masses to check out Japanese psych-samurais Kikagaku Moyo on Monday? Serenely inquisitive, the group finds the decorous space between notes on its third full-length release, “House in the Tall Grass.” Multilayered, sitar-seasoned mediations such as “Green Sugar,” “Melted Crystal” and “Fata Morgana” marry the courtly introspection of Japanese Gagaku with the outsider explorations of John Fahey in a forest of Norwegian woods. Well worth seeing, Kikagaku Moyo layers its watercolors Monday, Nov. 7, at Strange Matter. Joining it will be Helado Negro from Brooklyn, New York, and Richmond’s own Aspidistra. 8 p.m. $10-$12. strangematterrva.com.
