Former high school classmates Israel Rico and Karen Faye have teamed up for their first joint show, “Mexica Rock Cruzes y Cositas.” Rico’s Chicano pop art takes iconic cartoons and posters and gives them whimsical makeovers — Jimi Hendrix turns into a calavera with flaming electric guitar and Speed Racer turns into a Speed Cholo with a teardrop tattoo. For her part, relative newcomer Faye (whose artwork is also permanently displayed at Johnny’s Mexican Restaurant) will feature her 3D paintings and crosses on canvas combining religious overtones and references to SA history. Free, 6-9pm Fri, IAMA Coffee House, 1627 Broadway, (210) 669-4277, — Jessica Elizarraras
