The Athens, Georgia, music scene of the early 1980s was quite the show. Among the best, most original bands was Pylon, blending post-punk and new wave into an angular, danceable party — not unlike the B-52s but with more edge and artfulness. This is a tribute group featuring original lead singer Vanessa Briscoe Hay surrounded by folks who know how to capture the essential spirit of Michael Stipe’s favorite band. They’ll be joined by local indie veterans, Positive No and V.E. for what will certainly be a fun and memorable night. It was last time. 8 p.m. $12. strangematterrva.com.
