From Igor Stravinsky’s “The Rite Of Spring” to Freddie Mercury’s “We Are the Champions,” from “Smells Like Teen Spirit” to “My Funny Valentine,” The Bad Plus covers a lot of ground. The trio’s original songs ride the eccentric and oddly rhythmic lead of Dave King’s drum work, constantly reshaping the form and direction of their performances. On tour with their latest album, Inevitable Western, The Bad Plus continues their musical adventure.

$25/$30, Sunday, December 21st, doors at 4 and 7 pm; shows at 5 and 8pm, Cliff Bell’s, 2030 Park Ave., Detroit, MI 48226,
(313) 961-2543.
