Just Another Monday Evening

Click here to see and hear:  The Black Mountain Symphony

Granted, the citywide  Hudson Music Fest that just took place this past weekend was good chi for the town.  But you don’t need a Fest to feast on good live music in Hudson. It takes place all the time, and at every price range (including free), particularly at Club Helsinki, where  I happened upon the Black Mountain Symphony on an eerily quiet Monday evening a  full day after the end of the three day event. (The band was playing during the club’s regularly scheduled “local and free of charge”  Monday Showcase, which presents consistently gifted professionals gratis to the community every week.)  Black Mountain’s sophisticated sound struck a chord with me;  how wonderful it is to be able to just happen upon so polished a band on a supposed “off” night. (Check out Ellen Thurston’s This Week in Hudson for her own take on the music scene, and Helsinki favorites.)  It’s moments like these that  you really do marvel at how uniquely fortunate this town is (becoming). My apologies:  The clip here is abruptly truncated  and certainly rough–I’m just starting to get used to the video recording function on my new I Phone.  Things will improve in time.  –Scott Baldinger
