The Sadies Hit Hudson This Weekend

  • The Sadies

If more indie bands had the edge and scope of the Sadies, who play Club Helsinki this Friday, younger listeners might not have the impression that all so-called contemporary roots music is as hopelessly bland as that of Mumford & Sons and the Lumineers. Cofounded in 1994 by brothers Dallas and Travis Good (the sons of Canadian country singer Bruce Good), the Toronto quartet sees and capitalizes creatively on the links between ’60s surf and garage rock, ’70s and ’80s punk and hardcore, ’90s scum rock, and the country, bluegrass, and country rock the siblings were raised on.

The band’s most recent album, 2013’s Juno Award-nominated Internal Sounds (Yep Roc Records), was produced by Dallas Good with assistance from the Jayhawks’ Gary Louris. Over the years, the Sadies have collaborated with Neil Young, John Doe (X), Buffy Sainte-Marie, Neko Case, Heavy Trash, Randy Bachman (the Guess Who, Bachman-Turner Overdrive), R&B great Andre Williams, Gordon Downie (the Tragically Hip), and the Hudson Valley’s own Garth Hudson of the Band.

This vintage clip has the group tearing through the garagey “Flash”:

The Sadies will perform at Club Helsinki in Hudson, New York, on March 20 at 9pm. Tickets are $18. For more information, call (518) 828-4800 or visit http://helsinkihudson.com/.
