Mother Fletcher

April 8. Mother Fletcher is Hudson’s biggest local draw, and amusingly calls its music “Ameri-ska-na”: a quirky, high-hopping, danceable brew that, yes, takes ska as its jumping-off point, and adds rock, hip-hop, reggae, and gypsy folk. The band’s self-titled debut utilizes the standard guitar/bass/drums set-up but also sports fiddle, conga, horns, and harmonium, and was recorded at Catskill’s Old Soul Studios under the expert ears of Kenny Siegal (Johnny Society). Past performances have seen the group paired with local drag diva Musty Chiffon—perhaps she’ll grace us with a surprise appearance at this Club Helsinki date? Never rule anything out when it comes to these guys. (Spottiswoode and His Enemies return April 8; Club D’Elf with John Medeski groove in April 9.) 9pm. $12. Hudson. (518) 828-4800; www.helsinkihudson.com.

  • Follow that Spark: Brooklyn Designer Turns Farm Visit into Book that Gives Back

    In August, Brooklyn-based digital designer Michelle Layne Lawson read an article on Chronogram's website about Tomorrow, Tomorrow, a 150-acre farm animal sanctuary in Columbia County that was struggling to raise funds to stay afloat. Within a few days, Lawson was on her way up to Hudson to visit the farm. And what began as casual cute animal pics turned into a coffee table book that is being sold to raise funds for the sanctuary and a renewed sense of creative vocation. Don't mind us, we're just sobbing over here.
