Club Helsinki, Wednesday


They’re calling this one a “mini-festival of dreampop.” Headlining will be Brooklyn duo Widowspeak, whose hazy, guitar-driven rock has been described as “somewhere in between Mazzy Star and Cris Isaak,” which isn’t as random as it seems, given that they cover “Wicked Game” in its tremolo-drenched glory. Things will get festy thanks to openers Hand Habits, whose Fender trickery is familiar to Albany audiences, and Sleepers Bells, who mumble and groove their way out of Woodstock. (Aug. 27, 8 PM, $15, 405 Columbia St., Hudson, 828-4800)
