Drum Dungeon Bio - CARLA AZAR
The band Autolux formed in 2000 in Los Angeles, California. Azar met Eugene Goreshter while scoring Nobel Prize winner Dario Fo's play Accidental Death of an Anarchist. Azar met Greg Edwards when Ednaswap toured with Edwards' former band Failure and Local H. In August 2000, Autolux made their debut, playing two shows at the Silverlake Lounge. On March 1, 2001, the band released a self-produced EP entitled Demonstration. It contained five songs recorded on an 8 track in their rehearsal space.

After impressing legendary producer T-Bone Burnett during a performance, Autolux signed to DMZ, a small label created by Burnett and the Coen Brothers.

In 2002, Azar and Josh Klinghoffer supported Vincent Gallo's as his tour band in support of his record When. Besides drums, Azar also played guitar and mellotron on the tour.

Azar has also contributed drums to a number of other artist's records, including T-Bone Burnett's 2005 album The True False Identity and John Frusciante's 2005 album Curtains.

In January 2008, Azar entered the studio along with Polly Jean Harvey, John Parish, Eric Drew Feldman and Giovanni Ferrario, to provide drums on the follow-up to Harvey and Parish's 1996 collaboration "Dance Hall At Louse Point".
Carla Azar is a musician and a member of the band Autolux. Azar is a multi-instrumentalist but is known primarily for playing the drums. She also plays glockenspiel, xylophone, mellotron, piano, and bass guitar.

In May 2002, Azar fell from a stage after Autolux had opened for Elvis Costello. Her elbow was shattered, and she was told she would "probably never play drums again." However, due to an experimental surgery involving 8 titanium screws [photo at right], she made a full and complete recovery.
