The ’80s were a great time for just picking up trash and beating on it if you wanted to start a band. Because that tended to infuriate both instrumental virtuosos in the “straight” music world and just ordinary people who took pains to heap scorn on everything they condemned as “not art,” the practice carried with it a certain youthful allure. Decades later, most of those scandalized professionals and boojwah scolds have either died, retired or otherwise fucked off, and now Midwest metal murderers Boy Dirt Car plague Los Angeles for the first time in 33 years. Original member Darren Brown is here in full effect with his partner Julie; also on the bill is Richard Skott — no slouch himself when it comes to banging on shit — of ’80s Michigan noise merchants Hunting Lodge, and local noise chancer Nu Sire.

Boy Dirt Car plays with Richard Scott (Hunting Lodge) and Nu Sire at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 2 at Coaxial.
