Together now for more than a decade, bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson and drummer David King -- otherwise known as the Bad Plus -- are famed for their fearless mix of improvisational jazz with an indie-rock ethos. They're also known for their adventurous reworkings of pop, classical and even country tunes ranging from Ornette Coleman to Black Sabbath to Nirvana. Their most recent album, Never Stop, consists of entirely new originals and covers a range of musical styles from swing to '80s techno. Learn More
There is a parking garage literally RIGHT next to the venue. I don't recall the cost sadly (average for the area I think), but I will say it was very well guarded and if you do us it, remember to take your ticket with you as it is your key for elevator use! Also Parking technically begins on the 3rd level.Dirty Bourbon River Show travel • Aug 19 2014 star this tip starred
