History

Formation

Autolux formed in 2000 in Los Angeles, California. Goreshter and Azar met while scoring Nobel Prize winner Dario Fo's play Accidental Death of an Anarchist. Azar met Edwards when her former band, Ednaswap, toured with Edwards' former band Failure.[3] In August of 2000, Autolux made their debut, playing two shows at the Silverlake Lounge. On March 1st, 2001, the band released a self-produced EP entitled Demonstration. It contained five songs recorded on an 8 track in their rehearsal space.[4] Nickname: Location within Los Angeles County in the state of California Coordinates: State California County Los Angeles County Incorporated April 4, 1850 Government  - Type Mayor-Council  - Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa  - City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo  - Governing body City Council Area  - City  498. ...
