“TO LIVE AND SHAVE IN L.A. is an experimental music collective founded in 1993 by avant-garde composer/producer Tom Smith (formerly of Washington, DC groups Peach of Immortality and Pussy Galore) and Miami Beach musician/producer Frank “Rat Bastard” Falestra. The group’s primary aesthetic assertion posits that “genre is obsolete”. Although often categorized as purveyors of noise music, TLASILA have been noted to pursue an unorthodox approach, “construct(ing) songs around an overwhelming plethora of sonic detail, challenging the listener to engage with a surfeit of information,”deliberately blurring “the line between harsh metal-on-metal noise and abstract musique concrète” Smith’s lyrics “distance” the group “from any potential peers,” “scanning like (they) came from some previously unearthed hermetic treatise.” They’ll be accompanied by NEW TING TING LOFT from Richmond, Virginia, playing an aggressive blend of improvised music with a 20 year history of troubled and adventurous aesthetics. filling out the bill will be OOZING MEAT, NYC/RVA act FUK U / IDIOT and soundscapes provided by DJ RAT WARD!
