Loudspeakers carry voices in Spanish and English into the streets. Activists brandishing walkie-talkies converse with their unseen comrades. Megaphones and video monitors bring still other voices and faces to a startled crowd. The setting could be the epicenter of a guerrilla combat zone. Or maybe it's just one of those avant-garde art-happenings we haven't seen much of for a decade or two.

Beneath a backdrop of photographs of industrial areas, five actors stand on a gray, sparse stage telling their stories of living and working in Southeast Los Angeles. Their stories are about the Southeast area when it teemed with jobs for those willing to put in long, hard hours at the industrial plants in South Gate, Vernon, Maywood, Santa Fe Springs and Commerce. Their stories tell of the devastation when many of the plants closed in the late 1970s, leaving thousands jobless.

At first, George Gallardo and Joe Pineda "mad-dogged" each other, silently staring each other down as if looks could kill. They already knew each other from years on the streets of Pomona, where George's homeboys had shot at Joe's homeboys and Joe's homeboys had shot at George's. But after a week of working side-by-side at the R & R Custom Detailing shop, these two teen-age members of warring gangs have discovered that they can live in peace, at least for a few hours a day.

In terms of creativity and excitement, no museum in San Diego touches the exuberance of a Centro Cultural de la Raza art opening, one of which will be sprung on San Diego tonight at this museum-in-a-water-tank opposite the Naval Hospital in Balboa Park. Chicano comedian-turned actor Cheech Marin ("Born in East L.A.") will do a comic riff. Ruben Guevara and the Con Safos band from East Los Angeles will play Chicano rhythm and blues.
