Extraordinary Popular Delusions 

When: Mon., Dec. 17, 8:30 p.m. 2012

What: Keyboardist Jim Baker, drummer Steve Hunt, double bassist and electric guitarist Brian Sandstrom, and reedist Mars Williams are all veterans with decades of experience. Between them they’ve played jazz of every stripe at the Lighthouse Tavern and the Green Mill, funky circus music at the Folk & Roots Festival, and pastel 80s pop with the Psychedelic Furs. But since 2005 they’ve convened weekly as Extraordinary Popular Delusions to play a set of totally free improvisation. In one evening they might touch on rip-snorting fire music, spacy electronics, or delicate, arrhythmic timbral explorations—half the fun is seeing them disappear down a stylistic rabbit hole, then come out the other end sounding like something from a different genre, decade, or planet. Because this year Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve both fall on Mondays—the night of the weekly EPD gig at the Beat Kitchen—this is the band’s last show of 2012. —Bill Meyer
