"Wait for it......"


CAGES will be taking a brief sojourn in order to expose the past, present, and future of themselves to others. This will occur through physical motions and intangible repetitions. Can a pattern be frozen? I guess, we'll figure it out. 
Both nights will feature Jon Mueller's DEATH BLUES (presenting a new piece based on the DEATH BLUES and HERE releases) and Olivia Block ( presenting a new work, titled "Dialogue").

The answer is "Possibly".


 CAGES will present an evening of music, with the assistance of allies, in duo, trio, and quartet configurations.
The back catalog has been mined, new material has been re-worked, and the golden anvil has been doing what it does best. 
Much like Jupiter; Further, Forward, and Upward. 
The answer is "yes, YES YOU SHOULD!"

Dressed with a hat, apron and boots, and clean hands.
