Marcus J. Moore leads this week’s arts section with his profile of Demont “Peekaso” Pinter, a visual artist who’s Raheem DeVaughn‘s art director and an on-stage fixture on the city’s hip-hop and R&B circuits. Trey Graham raves about the production of Leonard Bernstein‘s Candide currently on stage at Shakespeare Theatre Company. Film critic Tricia Olszewski has kind words for The Fighter and The King’s Speech. David Dunlap reviews Daft Punk‘s much-anticipated soundtrack for TRON: Legacy, while Ramon Ramirez picks apart Diddy’s new Last Train to Paris. And for this week’s One Track Mind column, I talk to local brat-punkers Maybe, Baby about its new song “All I’ve Got.”
