w00t! I just checked out The Bad Plus's website, and noticed that they're going to be playing the Dakota December 27th-29th. I'm so there. I saw them play their tour kickoff concert at the Guthrie last spring, and man, were they amazing. If you haven't heard TBP, you really ought to - they're a jazz (sort of) trio, comprised of Dave King on drums, Reid Anderson on bass and Ethan Iverson on the piano. To call this music jazz isn't exactly appropriate, though. It's a mix of jazz, funk, rock, alternative, and the kitchen sink.

I'm going to be ordering tickets soon, so if any of you would like to come along, lemme know. They're doing two shows each night...7:00 and 9:00. The 7:00 tickets are \$35 and the 9:00 tickets are \$30. I'll probably go to one of the 9:00 shows.
