Joining no wave goddess Lydia Lunch and Sonic Youth co-founder Kim Gordon atop the holier-than-thou perch of avant-garde brutarians is Carla Bozulich, a vanguard on a deconstructionist mission for the last two-odd decades. Throughout her trailblazing arc, Bozulich has sliced and diced alt-industrial with Ethyl Meatplow and art-cow-punk with Geraldine Fibbers, dabbled in free-improv experimentalism with Wilco’s Nels Cline in Scarnella and Evangelista and has even covered an entire Willie Nelson record note for note. This year’s Boy (under her own name) is smoky and haunted noise-blues doom, and tonight, Bozulich’s worn, hoarse-throated bark will gloriously fill LPR. Ace twang-guitar jammer William Tyler opens.
