A blog about Hudson, New York

Counting Our Blessings

Hudson’s own Melissa Auf der Maur, formerly of  the Smashing Pumpkins and now doing her own brand of ethereal modern rock, played at Club Helsinki last night.  It was a special experience not only because it was opportunity to hear a terrific musician giving a crack performance with a superlative back-up band. It was also a chance to savor all of the features of the club itself: great acoustics and sound system in a gorgeous and comfortable space, good food served expeditiously, a staff that handles the crush of a sold out show with grace, and an audience as responsive as it is well behaved.  Moments like these and you can’t help but think that, for all the tumult and uncertainty in the town, someone up there must likes us. –Scott Baldinger
