A vision of the future on the past and present.
On Saturday, the 6th Street Viaduct got some major love with a big-ass farewell shindig on the bridge itself in the form of the 6h Street Bridge Festival. Most of you were there so The Militant will spare the big explanation. But it was hosted by Los Angeles City Councilman Jose Huizar (who never sounded more amp'ed up, and had some cool live music performances, culminating with a free concert set by Los Angeles' very own WAR. The bridge will be closed on the first week of 2016, so make your last visits now!

The bridge was immortalized in art.
Lowrider heaven. Just to let you know you're in The Eastside.
Los Angeles' contribution to funk music, the band WAR, playing all of their hits (though they skipped "The World is a Ghetto").
LED lighting and a smartphone-bearing crowd. What could look more early 21st Century than this?
Fireworks end the night. But the bridge will remain for the rest of the year.
