NSFW YouTube Freak Phenom Tonetta Comes to L.A. ... Sorta

He's been called "the savior of lo-fi music." He's been called "a pure artist." He's been called a combination of "repulsion and intrigue." Yeah, we're pretty sure Toronto-based YouTube star Tonetta has been called a lot of things -- famous as he is for lip-syncing and gyrating to his own perverse songs whilst wearing panties and wigs -- but we're stoked that the freak is coming to Los Angeles. Actually, his music and artwork (seen above) are -- Friday at Showcave --- but the exact whereabouts of the man himself on that night shall remain unknown. We'll let his record label, Black Tent Press, explain:

"Tony Jeffrey, known to you as Tonetta has encouraged that the live deployment of his musical persona be carried out by hand chosen international members of the musical community. The LA based band is lead by Brooks Nielson and Brian Stewart of the Growlers."

So he won't be there, but that might be a good thing. Tonetta's essence is enough, as you'll probably gather from the videos below. Check out five totally NSFW, totally awesome Tonetta insta-classics:
