GamVille (Hosted by the Wiyos) 

Nightlife Highlights

January 29. The way the Wiyos bring honking, shuffling, jiving, high-octane, washboard-fueled energy to old-time Americana has won them diehard fans not only among 1960s-generation folkies (Bob Dylan tapped them for his 2009 tour), but with fringe-dwelling hipsters as well. For "GamVille," the band—now featuring erstwhile-Hunger Mountain Boy Teddy Weber and area mainstay Sauerkraut Seth Travins—brings to Club Helsinki a vaudeville-esque revue of handpicked guests and surprises. High hokum 'n' hilarity, guaranteed. (Olabelle rolls through January 14; Iris Dement croons January 30.) 9pm. $15. Hudson. (518) 828-4800.

Speaking of...

  • CD Review: Christine Spero's "Spero Plays Nyro"

    Why and how dare she devote an entire album to songs by Laura Nyro when we can just listen to the originals on Spotify? I'll tell you why. Because Christine Spero fully inhabits these songs, uncovers hidden nuances, and with her stunning ensemble—including drummer Peter O'Brien, bassist Scott Petito, saxophonist Elliot Spero, and Christine's own magic hands on the ivories.
