"Damthesnes" at TAG Night Tomorrow

Jack Wright
Wilbo Wright's experimental music series at Joe's Mill Hill Saloon, sponsored by Trenton Avant Garde Inc., continues tomorrow night, Wednesday, Aug. 5, with sax/bass/drums trio Jack Wright (pictured at left), Todd Capp and Andrew Lafkas, plus the Trenton premiere of Wilbo's improvisational instrumental opera, "Damthesnes" (pronounced "damn these knees").

The trio carves out a distinctive place in the free jazz tradition. "Damthesnes" involves a truckload of instruments played by two people, Wilbo and Eric Haltmeier (Wilbo's the one on the right in the photo below). The story unfolds entirely in the music. As Wilbo points out, "no words, no singing and no bad acting." Wilbo performed this at the Black Box's Music of Invention series in Asbury Park a couple years ago. You can read about it in this Atlanticville article.

The show is 8:30 to midnight. Admission is $5 at the door. The Mill Hill Saloon is located at 300 S. Broad St. at the corner of Broad and Market in Trenton, 609-394-7222. (From the Shore, take I-195 to the end, follow the signs for Rt. 29 N. and get off at the Market St. exit in downtown Trenton. You'll see Joe's ahead on the right.)
