Sublime singer-songwriter Shawn Colvin is headed into Club Helsinki in Hudson at 9pm on Saturday, October 18. Ticket prices are $45 & $60. Also new Helsinki’s concert calendar are the Cajun band Les Amis Creoles – featuring Cedric Watson, Desiree Champagne and Ed Poulard – at 8pm on Thursday, October 16 ($18 in advance; $20 at the door), while folk guitar greats John Sebastian and Happy Traum team up for a guitarists-in-the-round show with Kinloch Nelson, Craig D’Andrea and Maycn Taylor at 8pm on Thursday, October 23 (ticket prices TBA).

King Crimson was mighty mindboggling in concert at The Egg last night, and if you can’t snag a ticket to tonight’s sold-out show, the next best thing might be to head down to the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock on Monday, October 20 where KC bandmates Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto team up with guitarist Markus Reuter for a concert as Stick Men. Tickets are $15.
