Monday, June 13, 2011 was the start of Street Music Week, an annual event started by Spokesman-Review columnist Doug Clark, an avid musician and performer, to raise money for Second Harvest, the regional food bank in Spokane. Musicians are invited to come downtown from noon to one p.m. June 13-17 and collect tips for the food bank. Special guests this week will include Mayor Mary Verner on Wednesday, City Council president Joe Shogan on Thursday, and Peter Rivera, of Rare Earth fame, Friday. Rivera will sing "Celebrate" and "Get Ready", his two major hits.
