MUSIC: Scotty Mac & the Rockin’ Bonnevilles @ Club Helsinki, Hudson. The JB Scott’s Reunion has come and gone, but reunion fever is still in the air. Now it’s the Rockin’ Bonnevilles’ turn to step back into the spotlight after a four-year hiatus, led by Scotty Mac’s rootsy guitar work, Ted Hennessy’s honking harp and twangin’ vocals with the versatile rhythm section of bassist Johnny Ellis and the newest Bonneville, drummer Pete Vumbacco (taking over for Chad Ploss, who is now with the Audiostars). 8pm. FREE.

The Romanian mixed media artist – who will be featured in a solo show in August in one of the DownStreet Art galleries – speaks about his socially engaged artwork: installations, documentary photographs and video and public performances that examine the multi-layered impact of globalization on local communities. 5pm. FREE.
