The L@TE: Friday Nights Program at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAM/PFA) rolls on into the month of July with three new shows.

First up on July 11th is a show from Vancover-based musician Gabriel Saloman. He is best known for his work in the band Yellow Swans, and performs with music that has been described as experimental, conceptual and freely improvised, and moves from twisted psychedelic pop to darker sonic exploration. Saloman will also be performing with duo Father Murphy (consisting of Rev. Freddie Murphy and Chiara Lee), who is best known for utilizes kabbalistic chanting, chiming bells and tiny drones on toy keyboards, thus creating a sound known as “Italian Cult Psychedelia”.

By this time, we have all heard of the term “selfies”. But on July 18th, there will a term called “Talkies”, which is actually a live monthly music and comedy show in the East Bay. Produced by host George Chen, with Kyle Mizono and Land Smith, the night kicks off with veteran comic Ron Lynch, best known for his works with Steven Wright and Louis C.K., as voice appearances on Adventure Time and Bob’s Burgers. Also featured that day is Sad Vicious (not to be confused with Sid Vicious), who with his absurd sketches that walks the line between performance art and comedy, and lines on the side of silly, has been considered as the “most hated band in San Jose”.

Finally on July 25th, is legendary local rock band A Minor Forest. The group is known for their complex arrangements, aggressive dynamics and intense live performances. Their albums on Thrill Jockey Records have been considered local classics in the “math rock” genre. The show open with the group Mansion, known for being a visually stimulating favorite among the underground warehouse circuit, with a sound known to be “sick” and “loud”.

Doors in BAM/PFA’s Gallery B opens at 5 p.m., with D.J. at 6:30. All three events begin at 7:30 p.m.
