And how are you feeling? Edvard Munch’s Anxiety (1896).

TAKE A STROLL Saturday (Sept. 26) is the 50th Stockade Walkabout, in that beautiful and historic Schenectady neighborhood. Tour historic homes and churches, enjoy historic re-creations (some folks from the neighborhood will be dressed as historic personages), dig live musical entertainment and take a horse-drawn carriage ride. The fun is from 10 AM-5 PM. Call 374-0263 for ticket and price information; visit stock for photos and videos of past celebrations.

NOT SO DEPRESSING The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute’s (Williams town, Mass.) new Manton curator of prints, drawings, and photographs, Jay Clarke, will lecture this Sunday (Sept. 27) at 3 PM on the life and art of Edvard Munch. Clarke, who curated the Becoming Edvard Munch exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago, will talk on “Questioning Munch’s Madness.” She will discuss Munch’s lesser-known, more “celebratory” works in an attempt to give a more balanced—and less dark—view of the artist. For more info, visit or call (413) 458-2303.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY Congratulations to the folks who put on the Big Bamboo Room Burlesque, because this Monday’s (Sept. 28) performances at Savannah’s/Dublin Underground (1 S. Pearl St., Albany) will celebrate five years of bringing vaudeville back from the dead, one month at a time. Host Guy Smiley will introduce such wild and wonderful acts as strip-teaser Scooter Pie, the exotic Bella Vendetta, magician Jeffrey Jene, Maxine de la Obscene and, direct from L.A., Samra. Shows are at 8 and 10 PM. Admission is $5.

STRANGER THAN FICTION Stranger than strange, indeed. Just down the block from the Bing Bamboo Room shenanigans, the WWE returns to the Times Union Center on Monday evening for a live broadcast of the hit USA cable show Monday Night Raw. You know what that means: some awesome wrestling. You know what else? The special guest host for the show is the Rev. Al Sharpton. The good reverend will appear to “raise awareness for . . . his campaign to improve our schools.” Amazing, yes? Tickets are going fast, so call the TUC at 487-2000 right now for prices and availability.
