Melissa Auf Der Maur (Hole/Smashing Pumpkins) hosts the Habitat for Humanity Fundraising Event at Hudson's Club Helsinki. Special guests include Meshell Ndegeocello, Tommy Stinson, and Melora Creager. Following a cabaret style format, there will be a rotating cast of players and special guests, including NYC Subway Girl Cathy Crier, playing original and cover songs. The concert benefits Columbia County Habitat, and its innovative project, the Columbia Passive Townhouses, the first affordable housing to be built in New York according to Passive House design and construction standards, which reduces the owners' energy consumption and costs by 90 percent.
