The Bad Plus

For the past 21 years, The Bad Plus have played a four-night run over the holidays at The Dakota in Minneapolis; the pandemic makes that annual tradition impossible for the 2020 holiday season.

However, the band — Reid Anderson, Orrin Evans & Dave King — did record a pair of exceptional sets, featuring first-class visuals and sound, for a virtual performance at the Big Ears Festival October 2020. The filming took place at the historic Bijou Theatre in Knoxville, TN.

We're pleased to offer both sets streaming back-to-back between X-mas and New Year's Day — making certain that you have your good fill of The Bad Plus this holiday season.
