“The Art Don’t Stop”

With the help of local businesses and random pedestrians, Todd Berman will be “democratically creating” a collage Thursday, using the future of Sixth Street as a theme. Backlit and hanging in the windows of host gallery DA Arts will be recent paintings of and by neighborhood restaurant employees such as Mo from Chico’s Pizza who did an amazing portrait of … uh, Joe from Chico’s Pizza.

Thievery Corporation

Listen to the lyrics of the last two original Thievery Corporation albums, and you might think they more closely resemble something out of the Free Speech Movement than Eighteenth Street Lounge. The opening track for last year’s The Cosmic Game (Eighteenth Street) begins, “Well let’s start by/ Making it clear/ Who is the enemy.” Don’t think this is some celebrity musician facade either; last September, Thievery Corporation’s Rob Garza and Eric Hilton performed at “Operation: Ceasefire,” a free concert-rally protesting the war in Iraq.
