All are invited to an opening reception from 5:30 to 7:30 pm on Friday, January 5.Van Emden, who paints images from her surroundings, is specifically inspired by strong light raking across surfaces and through space. The artist says, I am drawn to the drama and the sense of volume created by the stark contrast between light and dark, whether across a childs face, a still life or an urban scene.The Bonsack Gallery is a not-for-profit educational gallery on the campus of John Burroughs School, 755 South Price Road, St. Louis, MO, 63124.

He is one of a misty-eyed gentlefolk seeking prosperity in a soul, in the soul. Hes a wanderer of the highest regard, with hazy matter, loosely based on his waking hours, conditions, remarks and interactions, all that he finds suitable to chronicle in his ledger and diary. He made a record entitled Feathers & Fishhooks, three years ago and the men, or man, that he introduced us to were of the fluttery variety. They found that they were utterly consumed by their wanderings, by the ifs, the white noise and the unseen phantoms whispering it all breathy and hot into their ears. Baxter, who calls Nashville home, is a keen observer not just of a non-thing thing like the human condition, but more so an observer of how he reacts to that non-thing thing called the human condition and just how people relate to one another. He appreciates the nuances of those who fail one another, or those who mean to let each other down. He appreciates even more those who intend to be sweet, those who will remain, holding a hand warm or cold and falling into surreal rhythm together. Imaginary Man, his second long-player, is an exquisite new exploration of the disorienting qualities of real life and what they drive us to conjure in our sleep, when were lucky enough to get it, when we allow our days to be through. Its a mellow current of open water, touching muddy banks, carving out a sensation of desire and great hunger. People must be more. He must be more, better and kinder. Love must touch more and be more visible. People need people and they need beauty and mercy in abundance. It all needs to be there and Baxter finds this tumbling course a fascinating one.

After 17 years together, and a decade-long tradition with Jazz St. Louis, The Bad Plus announced a major change in the bands infrastructure last spring. Longtime pianist Ethan Iverson will be leaving the group, with Philadelphia native Orrin Evans joining the band in 2018. With Iversons final engagement set for December 2017, bassist Reid Anderson and drummer David King will debut the NEW version of The Bad Plus, with Evans, at the Bistro! With the new lineup, the band continues their long-standing tradition of being a leaderless trio with a committed belief in what theyve dubbed avant-garde populism the idea that serious music can be as engaging and accessible as it is forward-thinking and provocative.
Style: modern jazz

Madrid-based garage rockers Hinds started as a duo of Carlotta Cosials and Ana García Perrote. Shortly before releasing their first single Demo in 2014 the duo became a four piece, with close friend, ex guitar player and singer Ade Martín on bass and one of their first fans, Amber Grimbergen on drums. During the rest of the year and throughout 2015 they embarked on their first world tour, playing everywhere from Thailand, Vietnam and Australia to the United States to the worldwide festival circuit, including SXSW (in which they played 16 concerts in just 4 days), Glastonbury and Burgerama. They have received very positive reviews in Pitchfork, Pigeons and Planes, Gorilla vs. Bear, Paste, SPIN, Entertainment Weekly and NME. Their debut album, Leave Me Alone, made its way into the world on Friday, January 8, 2016 via Mom + Pop Music. Fresh off their release, Hinds is receiving praise for their work. This great garage-rock crew from Madrid folds decades of naïf-rock history into its craftily shambling tunes, said Rolling Stone. Pitchfork suggests its [Carlotta] Cosials and [Ana] Perrotes shared vocal responsibilities, which fit perfectly together that truly set Hinds apart. Entertainment Weekly calls Hinds
the years buzziest indie breakout, while SPIN asks Whether seeing Hinds live, or listening to their debut album, Leave Me Alone, one question always comes to mind: Can I join?
