September 9. It feels perfunctory to say it, but, yes, singer-songwriter Justin Townes Earle happens to be the son of sometime local legend Steve Earle. Justin, however, is no familial coattail coaster. By far one of the most moving live solo acts you'll see, he's an influential artist in his own right, one with his own style, that, yes, happens to share some of the influences favored by his dad; his partial namesake, Townes Van Zandt, chief among them. And, as the title of his most recent album, 2014's Absent Fathers, suggests, the younger Earle is not shy about confronting his father's legacy. This return visit to Club Helsinki will no doubt be another night filled with his rootsy, introspective glory. (Dave and Phil Alvin with the Guilty Ones testify September 3; Trixie Whitley turns up September 25.) 9pm. $25, $35. Hudson.
