L.A. locals re-groove Television classic for charity

LAventureart_4 Justin Gage of the fine L.A. music blog Aquarium Drunkard has curated “L’Aventure,” a collection — due Tuesday as a digital compilation — on which eight hip local acts perform their own interpretations of a track from “Adventure,” the 1978 sophomore album by the pioneering New York punk band Television.

All proceeds from the suggested-donation collection benefit the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, the educational outlet in which Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers is a prime mover. The album will be available for downloading Tuesday on the Aquarium Drunkard Web site.

Performers on “L’Aventure” include the Henry Clay People (playing “Glory”), Foreign Born (“Days), the Happy Hollows (“Foxhole”), Local Natives (“Careful”), the Deadly Syndrome (“Carried Away”), Imaad Wasif with Lykke Li (“The Fire”), Dirt Dress (“Aint’ That Nothin’) and Growlers (“The Dream’s Dream”).

Last year, Aquarium Drunkard released a similar  compilation, “RAM On L.A.,” featuring locals’ interpretations of Paul McCartney’s 1971 solo album “RAM.” That set, which was released as an MP3 download, benefited No More Landmines.
