Survival Research Laboratories in Los Angeles, December 22

Pioneering machine performance group Survival Research Laboratories are holding a rare full-scale performance in Los Angeles on December 22. If you're not familiar with SRL, the video above gives a short, sharp taste of their 34 years of robotic mayhem and black comedy. "Each performance consists of a unique set of ritualized interactions between machines, robots, and special effects devices, employed in developing themes of socio-political satire. Humans are present only as audience or operators." Survival Research Laboratories

    Their ’05 show in Los Angeles completely flabbergasted me. It kills me that I’ll have to miss this one. SO MUCH LOUD.

    1:42 to 2:02 is from a Seattle show they did in the early 90s. I was there!

  5. This performance is part of the Extreme Futurist Festival please credit the festival in the text if you can, i know the organizers went to a hell of a lot of trouble to book these guys and the rest of the festival is a must-see for happy mutants.
