Hudson’s Gateway for Music and Art Lovers

A few blocks from Warren Street, the main shopping drag in Hudson, there’s an 1880s industrial factory that’s been reclaimed by a musician and a filmmaker for a rapidly growing nonprofit multidisciplinary arts center. Just the space alone, with its sheer scale and mix of raw architecture and stunning decoration, is a draw, but with a broad range of programming like experimental film screenings, unconventional art events, and community gatherings, Basilica Hudson draws crowds. And their antifestival, Basilica SoundScape, on September 13th, offers families a chance to get in on the action.

Celebrating its fourth year, Basilica SoundScape is a ticketed weekend of carefully curated new music, visual art, and literature. There are film screenings, experimental sound concerts, suites of paintings, and The Book Table, featuring elegantly designed novel and poetry paperbacks. It runs September 11th-12th, and on Sunday the 13th, they throw open the doors. Beginning at 11a, there’s a Sunday Brunch serving up wholly flavorful, locally sourced, and beautifully presented dishes like tempura, bi bim bop, and salted caramel ice cream with gingered pear from Alimentary Kitchen’s pop-up kitchen. There’s also a Truck Food Court and beer from Lagunitas Brewing Company.

All day, people can peruse a mini Basilica Farm & Flea, that wildly successful Thanksgiving weekend shopping showcase of regional makers, farmers, and vintage collectors. And the large-scale paintings of contemporary artist, Dan Colen, made on site at the Basilica, as well as an exhibition in Basilica’s Back Gallery, will be on display.

It’s the perfect gateway for families to experience the arts, culture, and talents of Hudson’s sustainable community.

Basilica SoundScape family-friendly day at Basilica Hudson, 110 S. Front St in Hudson, Sunday, September 13th, 11a-4p, free and open to the public. Food available for $3-5 per drink or side, and up to $15 per entrée. Marketplace prices vary per booth.
