Instrumental music fills Twist

from the Tennessean...

Instrumental music fills Twist


Headlining a heady double bill at Twist Art Gallery on Saturday is Raleigh, N.C.'s, Savage Knights, an instrumental ensemble known for its deep grooves, tight writing and improv skills. The group's influences include everything from krautrock, free jazz and metal to punk, 20th century classical music and Ethiopian pop.

Rounding out the bill is the Hudson-Maddox Complex, a local duo steeped in free jazz and prog-rock. The group features Joseph Hudson on electric piano and accordion and Dave Maddox on saxophone.

Twist is at 73 Arcade, between Fourth and Fifth Avenue North downtown. The suggested donation for the event, which takes place from noon to 3 p.m., is $5. For more information, contact David Maddox at For gallery directions, call Twist Art Gallery at 1-888-535-5286.
