Perfectible Worlds; Relationships: A Ten Year Bond

People with obsessions are the obsession for photographer Sage Sohier. In Perfectible Worlds (opening this weekend at Center for Photography at Woodstock), Sohier turns his lens on folks with what are essentially strange hobbies: a Revolutionary War re-enactor dressed in full British Redcoat garb; a boy who has built a scale model of Kandahar, Afghanistan on the floor of his bedroom; a Texas family comprised of Tae Kwon Do medalists. His photographs are filled with life, depicting the subjects in their natural habitats, knee-deep in their unique universes.

Also opening this weekend is Relationships: A Ten Year Bond, an exhibition of prints from CPW’s permanent collection organized by students at SUNY New Paltz. Pictured is Unbraiding, New York City (1996), by Angela Cappetta.

Perfectible Worlds and Relationships: A Ten Year Bond open this Saturday (Sept. 2) at the Center for Photography at Woodstock (59 Tinker St., Woodstock). An opening reception with artist talk by Sage Sohier will take place on Sept. 9 from 5 to 7 PM. Both shows will remain on display through Oct. 22. For more information, call (845) 679-9957.

 29th Annual Capital District Scottish Games

Attention lads and lassies: It’s that time o’ the year again, as the clans gather this weekend for the annual Scottish Games at the Altamont Fairgrounds. There will be competitive piping, drumming, athletics, bands and more. So it’s time to press your kilts.

On Saturday, look for the Northeastern U.S. Pipe and Drum Championships, Celtic Canine Capers (see their Web site for a pooch picture), the Bonniest Knees Contest, and music by, among others, the Brigadoons. On Sunday, there will be the Braeman Highland Dancers, “amateur athletics” (we’re thinking log tossing) and music by many artists, including the McKrells.

Hold on their, boys: Aren’t the McKrells Irish? For God’s sake, don’t anyone let Sean Connery hear about this.

The 29th Annual Capital District Scottish Games will be held Saturday and Sunday (Sept. 2-3) at the Altamont Fairgrounds (Route 146, Altamont). Admission is $15 Saturday, $10 Sunday; hours are 9 AM-6 PM Saturday and 11 AM-7 PM Sunday. For more info, please visit

Mariah Carey

When this show was announced several months back, it seemed improbable that it would come to pass, considering the star’s history of meltdowns and freak-outs. But it’s almost showtime, and the Pepsi hasn’t announced a cancellation yet, so it looks like this is actually going to happen: The one and only Mariah Carey will take the stage tomorrow (Friday) night, as part of her Adventures of Mimi tour. Good timing, too: The pop diva (this term was practically invented for Ms. Carey) is riding a wave of popularity and success she hasn’t experienced since long before she dropped the Glitter bomb five years back—her latest disc, The Emancipation of Mimi, has sold close to 10 million copies worldwide, a number that harkens back to her commercial heyday of the early and mid-’90s, and she’s poised to shatter the Beatles’ long-held record of 20 No. 1 singles. (Carey’s currently at 18.) She’s without a doubt the world’s biggest recording artist, and here’s a rare opportunity to catch her live in concert. Go.

Mariah Carey will perform tomorrow (Friday, Sept. 1) at the Pepsi Arena (51 S. Pearl St., Albany). Sean Paul will open. Tickets for the 8 PM show range from $19.50 to $125. For tickets or more information, call (800) 30-EVENT.
