Howard Fishman performs on Friday night. The New York Times said, "Howard Fishman has a fondness for old things and a knack for restoring them"--a description which, in a city where most people are fond of old things and appreciate skillful restoration, is a compelling recommendation.
On Sunday night, after you've doled out the candy and hung up the costume, you can reward yourself with the whimsy, imagination, and intelligence of Tin Hat. The New Yorker says of Tin Hat, "Their haunting and strangely familiar music . . . is a soundtrack for the kind of puzzling dream that leaves you sitting awake in the middle of the night."
Friday's performance begins at 9 p.m.; Sunday's at 8 p.m. Order tickets at the Club Helsinki website.
