Industrial robot monster fight troupe Survival Research Labs (SRL) is 30 years old, which officially means that there are death machines out there old enough to have kids who are obsessed with Twilight. SRL, run by designer/artist Mark Pauline, has put on so many glorious, firey, illegal shows over the years that they've permanently earned a place in all of our hearts as the people who fuck shit up with machines made of jet scraps and meat. When you go to one of their live shows, you can stand mere feet away from giant, remote-controlled robots attacking each other like a punk industrial version of a Godzilla movie.
