comment

To Live and Shave in L.A. is an experimental music collective based in Germany that incorporates aggressive noise, avant-garde, and post-punk textures. Founded in the early 90's by composer Tom Smith and producer Frank Falestra, TLASILA released its debut album, "30-Minuten M#nnercreme," in 1994 with the help of oscillator player Ben Wolcott, and has since made dozens of releases featuring various sound artists. TLASILA creates haunting and violent electronic soundscapes using elements of heavy dub, musique concrete, and psychedelia. The music feels improvisational while an underlying pulse keeps the listener tied in, like watching an accident about to happen but not being able to look away.

To Live and Shave in L.A. will perform Tuesday, June 26, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $10. bugjar.com; toliveandshaveinla.com.
