Thursday, June 2, 2011, there will be a Spring Garden Music House Concert (3321 Spring Garden Street, Philadelphia, PA): 7:30 arrival/doors, and the performances start at 8pm SHARP - please come on time since it's on the 3rd floor, and we'll be hesitant to come downstairs for latecomers once the performances commence.

The New Residents at the house, who have just moved from Portland OR:

Heather Vergotis, Mark Kaylor, and Kelvin Pittman on saxophone, percussion, and saxophone respectively

Asimina Chremos, dance, Philadelphia

Jack Wright, alto and soprano saxes, Easton PA

I believe admission is free.

Hi, I can't listen to music here. Could you describe the music? Never heard of a sax-drums-sax band before.

Man, I wish I could be there.

Deathalicous: I would call it "PDX Free Improv". But that's just me.

So.... Jazz?

No, the kind of improv that is free enough that it isn't jazz any more. Usually atonal, it doesn't swing, etc. But I could be wrong here, I have never heard any of these folks play the same thing twice.

So... background music for 1970s educational films about science?

Think interesting traffic sound while on an acid flashback. Or babies possessed by Kafka in a humorous mode, his mouth full of marbles and marshmallows. Covers of the incidental music in horror films. Chopped and screwed North Indian devotional music. Musical weirdness without a plan, without costumes, and without amps.

Deathalicious: "Never heard of a sax-drums-sax band before."

There's some Argentinian band that does that, so I'm told, but I cannot successfully Google them into being, nor can I get anyone I know who has experienced said band to remember their moniker.

(I think it's sax solo, drum solo, sax solo, actually. Really, I recommend chancing this just to experience Carol Genetti, who I can only describe as more terrifying and exquisite than Diamanda Galas, which is the only ballpark comparison I can make. She's fucking amazing,, no hyperbole.)

Okay, it's jazz, with emphasis, use an unusual accent.
