Dark Dark Dark 

Nightlife Highlights

October 8. Thanks to its Brechtian songs and moody, Eastern European flair, Minneapolis quintet Dark Dark Dark gets tossed into the same ragtag gypsy/cabaret-punk bag that houses too many gimmicky acts. Which just ain’t right. One of today’s most haunting underground folk acts, the band conjures deep and, er, dark sounds via acoustic bass, piano, trumpet, clarinet, soft drums, and the monochromatic voices of accordionist Nona Marie Invie and banjoist Marshall Lacount, and is miles above the hackneyed “Fiddler on the Roof” outtakes of most similarly inspired peers. The group often takes part in ambitious performance art projects, so who knows what this Club Helsinki show will bring. Emily Wells opens. (The Magnetic Fields return October 25; the John Spencer Blues Explosion erupts November 2.) 8pm. $10. Hudson. (518) 828-4800; Helsinkihudson.com.
