L@te Noise

When: Fri., March 12, 7:30 p.m. 2010

On a stage overflowing with neon cabin-fever hallucinations plays a band of unspeakable horrors, beasts, and animated furniture. Oozing out into the audience, it's an absolutely enveloping experience. Caroliner's overwhelming spectacle is matched by its sound: skillet-lickin' old-time music from the 19th century, by way of 20th-century electroacoustic composition and punk rock. Banjos, analog synths, and grindcore blast-beats are all stirred into its sonic stew. Playing since 1983, it is a progenitor and leader of the Bay Area's costumed noise scene, far surpassing its followers in the absurd scope of its endeavors. Caroliner Rainbow Deep Grey Mind Blushing Out a Pattern performs at the BerkeleyArt Museum's L@TE series (2626 Bancroft Way, Berkeley) on Friday, Mar. 12. 6 p.m., free with museum admission, $5 after 5 p.m. BAMPFA.berkeley.edu/about/LATE
