The Bad Plus

Not your everyday avant-garde-jazz-punk-classical-garage trio, the Bad Plus return for their annual extended Christmas visit to the Dakota, their sleigh undoubtedly packed with deliriously twisted baubles to be meted out over the first three eves of their residency. That could mean deconstructed covers of anyone from Nirvana to Ornette Coleman to Roger Miller, plus equally quirky originals. But the spectacular gift, the Plus's equivalent of the Red Ryder BB Gun, is reserved only for Sunday: the run through Igor Stravinsky's groundbreaking The Rite of Spring. The aim of Ethan Iverson, Dave King, and Reid Anderson usually is unerringly true, so there's little chance they'll shoot their eyes out. (Photo by Cameron Wittig)
