WAIT WAIT . . . DON’T WAIT One week from today (May 8), NPR’s ridiculously entertaining news-quiz show Wait Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me will come to the main stage at Proctors (432 State St., Schenectady) for an 8 PM live taping. Host Peter Sagal, judge-scorekeeper-announcer Carl Kasell and three as-yet-unnamed panelists will all be there; you can read my interview with Sagal in next week’s issue. If you want to be there, however, it would behoove you to buy tickets as soon as possible, because, I am informed by those who would know, tickets are going fast. Tickets range from $20 to $33; for more info call the Proctors box office at 346-6204.

THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN EVERYDAY If there’s one place that that never seems to close—except for the major major holidays—it is the New York State Museum. Well, the museum will be closed Saturday (May 3) for “preventive maintenance electrical work requiring a power shutdown.” So do something else on Saturday; the NYSM will reopen Sunday (May 4) at 9:30 AM. Then you and yours can mosey on down to the Empire State Plaza in beautiful downtown Albany to check out the terrific Focus on Nature X exhibit reviewed in this week’s issue by Nadine Wasserman.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY Capital Community Voices will celebrate their 25th anniversary this Saturday (May 3) with a 7:30 PM “25 years of musical memories” concert at Columbia High School (Luther Road, East Greenbush). Under the direction of Julie Panke, and accompanied by a trio, the chorus will sing a variety of pops favorites. The post-concert reception will include a “slide show of photos and memorabilia” documentary the group’s history. Tickets are $8 general admission and $6 for seniors and students.

ODDS AND ENDS Today (Thursday, May 1) at 5 PM, Schenectady County Community College will host a discussion with New York Times political reporter Michael Powell in their Stockade Room. Powell put in years covering Rudy and Hillary for various papers, so he should have plenty to say. Admission is free. . . . Gallery on the Hudson, located at 90 Broad St. in Schuylerville, is holding a “Grand Re-opening Reception” Saturday (May 3) from 4 to 8 PM. Renovations have doubled the gallery’s size to “over 2000 square feet of exhibit space.” The opening show will feature works by eight regional artists. The gallery phone number is 258-0048. . . . When the Mendelssohn Club of Albany present their annual spring concert at the Egg (Empire State Plaza, Albany) on May 16, they’ll be singing, in part, for the kitties and puppies. A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to the Mohawk and Hudson River Humane Society. The Mendelssohn concerts always feature a special guest—this time it’s Sarah Pedinotti and band—and usually sell out well in advance. Call 473-1845 for ticket info. . . . “Heavy” tickets sales have prompted Schenectady Light Opera Company (826 State St., Schenectady) to extend their production of Cole Porter’s Anything Goes another weekend. The additional performances are May 17 at 8 PM and May 18 at 2 PM. For more info, call (877) 350-7378.
