Bettye Lavette plays Club Helsinki

January 11. After 50 years in front of the mike, Detroit-raised R&B vocalist Bettye LaVette finally began getting her mass-audience due with a series of 2000s “comeback” albums. Perhaps the best known of these is 2010’s Interpretations: The British Rock Songbook, which includes her soulful covers of the Beatles, the Who, Pink Floyd, and the Rolling Stones. But by the time of its release, the firecracker diva, who here pays a hot visit to Club Helsinki, was already a legend among Northern soul collectors, thanks to her scorching 1960s singles on essential genre labels like LuPine, Atlantic, Calla, SSS International, Atco, and Silver Fox. (Martin Sexton sings January 10; Beth Orton plays February 7.) 9pm. $45, $50. Hudson. (518) 828-4800.
