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

First the opening act was canceled. Then the main act was running late, so doors opened an hour later than expected (Goldstar sent an email but we didn't see it in time). Tao was much more rock than folk - ok, but not what we hoped for. To be fair, the description did mention he likes to add rock to his folk. As a vegetarian, I could only eat one entree on the menu and it was so-so.
Music is in his blood. Fusing the folk styles of his family heritage with contemporary rock ‘n’ roll, Tao Rodriguez-Seeger ’s music breaks all barriers of traditional folk bringing a unique and distinctive sound to the table.
Born into a musical family in Poughkeepsie, New York, Tao is the eldest grandchild of folk singer Pete Seeger. Tao spent his childhood in Nicaragua where his father was a war correspondent, making documentary films about the Sandinista revolution. With little access to pop music in Nicaragua, Tao cherished his AC/DC and Metallica cassettes along with the two tapes he had of his grandfather’s music. Here began the merging of rock and folk music that would come to influence Tao in his musical career.
