The Bad Plus (Tuesday through July 21) Few groups in the greater jazz orbit sound more doggedly intrepid than the Bad Plus, which flirted with electronic textures on “Made Possible” (eOne), released last fall. The band — Reid Anderson on bass, Ethan Iverson on piano, David King on drums — has recently collaborated with sympathetic interlopers, notably the guitarist Bill Frisell. But this run, taking place on familiar footing, will simply feature the trio in all its lean, concussive glory. At 9 and 11 p.m., Village Vanguard, 178 Seventh Avenue South, at 11th Street, West Village, (212) 255-4037, villagevanguard.com; $25 cover, with a one-drink minimum. (Chinen)

Ingrid Laubrock’s Anti-House (Thursday) The saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock this year released “Strong Place” (Intakt), her fine second album with the restless unit she calls Anti-House. Here she re-engages with improvisers just as resourceful with texture as she is: the guitarist Mary Halvorson, the pianist Kris Davis, the bassist Sean Conly and the drummer Tom Rainey. At 8:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, (212) 989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; $20 cover includes one drink. (Chinen)

Sound It Out 1st Anniversary Hot House Festival (Thursday through July 21) For the last year, the Sound It Out concert series, founded by the music journalist Bradley Bambarger, has been a beacon of adventurous programming in Greenwich Village.
