Sound and vision are the watchwords for the arts happenings in New Haven this week. There are highly watchable bands such as the modernist-art act Chain & The Gang and local trip-hop duo Mission Zero. There are intriguing gallery shows, such as Creative Arts Workshop’s annual window installation and a new exhibit of Winfred Rembert’s tooled leather scenes at the Kehler Liddell Gallery. There’s the blowing (and popping) of bubbles. There’s a reading of Anne Frank’s diaries. There are photographs of Music Haven. Vision and sound. Sound and vision.

Blue and yellow stage light raked over Joe Cabral’s face as he stepped up to the microphone, his saxophone hanging from his neck like a great, symbolic pendant.
“Every time we take a drink, y’all take a drink!” he announced, lifting a shot of tequila into the air to raucous applause and cheers from a sweaty audience, gathered at the base of the stage like devotees to a prophet.

Matthew Feiner brought his Brompton Bike to New Haven’s Union Station. It wasn’t to take the 5:02 train to Grand Central. Or the 5:10 to Old Saybrook. Or the even the 5:33 to Boston.
No. He had a fair to get to.
