Grand Fiasco, with Brother Bagman 

Friday, December 19, at the Grand Emporium.

As Old Man Winter hovers over the Midwest like the thick haze of smoke hanging over the audience during a Phish set break, it's time to remember that even the roving tribes of the jam-band jet set have an off season. Always ready, willing and able to satiate the Kansas City masses, area improv-rock artists Grand Fiasco and Brother Bagman have built a dedicated local following by applying the jam model in miniature to KC. Although Grand Fiasco seems content with the niche it has carved -- the afterparties of national shows breezing through town usually end up wherever these guys are playing -- Brother Bagman is looking for more. With its debut album, Notorious B.A.G., complete, the upstart quartet is not-so-quietly preparing to venture into the wider world come spring thaw.
