In 2002, hip-hop group Little Brother released their debut album entitled "The Listening". The core theme of the album was developed around their effort to engage their listeners, who would otherwise not really pay much attention to the lyrics or message behind a song.
In 2013, this particular showcase is embarking on a similar effort, packed into one simple question:
"If you had a room full of people willing to listen to you, what would you say?"
This is a open mic/poetry showcase, inviting all with the gift of lyricism to share.
Tell a story. Sing a song.
