The Bad Plus playing New Year’s run @ Village Vanguard & other dates

by Andrew Frisicano

The Bad Plus

The Bad Plus will be playing a six-show run at the Village Vanguard to end the year (and start the next). The band plays two sets a night from Tuesday, December 29th to Sunday, January 3rd. Their New Year’s eve show is a bit different – a $125 ticket (which includes a $25 drink minimum) covers both sets. NYE will also be broadcast on WBGO (88.3 FM) on Toast of the Nation (as part of NPR’s Live at the Village Vanguard series). Tickets are on sale.

TBP pianist Ethan Iverson checks in regularly on his Do the Math blog – his own year-end lists have included so far a rundown of Classic Crime Stories, “Recent Improvisations (and) In Praise of the Independent Label,” and “11 Canonical AAM Performances”.

It looks like the band will keep a fairly busy in 2010 too – they’re scheduled into February with shows (including one on February 8th at Pomona, NJ’s Stockton PAC). Videos and all tour dates are below…
