Nightlife Highlights: The Suitcase Junket 

click to enlarge suitcasejunket.jpg

June 3. From Northampton, Massachusetts, to Club Helsinki comes dumpster-diving indie folk/blues artist Matt Lorenz—aka the Suitcase Junket. Lorenz began writing his own dark story-songs in 2004 on an acoustic guitar he pulled out of the trash. His live style is something to behold: Accompanying himself with a ramshackle percussion setup that literally includes a box of bones, he sings into his guitar pickups and retro ribbon microphone and pairs lonesome howling and occasional harmonic overtone vocals on bleak ballads and distorted, White Stripes-y eruptions. (Brazilian Girls breeze by June 25; Woods waft in June 30.) 9pm. $15. Hudson. (518) 828-4800.
