Throughout the concert, MC Lisa Lust flamboyantly urged the crowd of several dozen youths to scream and applaud for their peers. For almost two hours, the small performance room in Street-Level’s Chicago headquarters became a sweaty fest of passionate student-produced music and poetry."  Click to see the full article
