July 23. In the time since she was profiled in the November 2014 issue of Chronogram, singer-songwriter, performance artist, public speaker, and author Amanda Palmer has added another occupation to her resume: mother. In 2015, she and her husband, writer Neil Gaiman, announced the birth of a son, Anthony. Recently, the three relocated to Hudson, whose celebrated multiarts venue Basilica Hudson will host this evening by the chanteuse and her father, choral singer Jack Palmer, in support of their forthcoming album, You Got Me Singing. A full-on family affair, the release was recorded by the pair while Amanda was pregnant. "I knew that from my post at the mixing desk and the mike, this music was being heard in the womb," she says. "We wanted it to sound like the connective tissue between three generations." With Thor and Friends, featuring Swans percussionist Thor Harris. 7pm. $15, $20. Hudson. (518) 822-1050;

    Early on, the band, which this month plays Club Helsinki for the first time, won the patronage of Talking Heads main man David Byrne, who appeared on their 2008 single "I'm Losing Myself" (the group covered the Heads' "Cross Eyed and Painless" for a 2007 AIDS benefit album). The foursome's danceable cocktail makes a fine tonic for the winter blues.
