As part of the Berkeley Art Museum's eclectic performance series "L@TE: Friday Nights @ BAM/PFA," a trio of noise- or distortion-oriented musicians takes the...well, there isn't exactly a stage, but they'll be playing in Gallery B, where Thom Faulders' interactive sculpture installation, known as the BAMscape, resides.

The BAM calendar bills the Fri/11 show, titled "Summer Sounds," as featuring "a lineup of old-school rock 'n' roll bands nurtured in our backyard." First up are Sic Alps, who've received accolades of late. Formerly of noise rock pioneers Harry Pussy, guitarist Bill Orcutt -- perhaps the headliner of the night -- recently put out a solo record. Rounding out the evening are the Baths, a group signed to the verdant Woodsist label who have yet to release their debut record.
