The Mountain Goats at Club Helsinki

April 17. The vehicle of singer-songwriter John Darnielle, the Mountain Goats make just the kind of brainy modern indie folk pop that warms the desk chairs of bookish, fortysomething introverts across the nation. A fave of fellow Carolinian Stephen Colbert (the band has appeared on The Colbert Report) and a one-time headliner at Carnegie Hall, Darnielle brings the Goats moniker to our region this month for an inviting solo performance in the cozy quarters of Club Helsinki. So literate listeners should move fast to trade those desk chairs for supper club seats at this glorious night of winsome wordplay. With Erin McKeown. (The Budos Band jams April 11; Omar Sosa plays April 25.) 8pm. $25, $35. Hudson. (518) 828-4800;

Speaking of...
