Rochelle Hart is AMAZING- Go see her perform tonite!!! 04.Jun.2005 17:04

Allen Wrench

I saw Rochelle Hart (aka RO DEEZY) perform at the PCLF benefit at Nocturnal in November, and again last weekend at the PSU hip hop summit- and was absolutely astounded. I'm going to this show based on her presence alone!
It seems to be a rare thing when someone can fuse political awarness with performance poetry and not come off totally didactic, or worse, cliched and tired. I'm not an art critic, but I've see Rochelle do it her way and succeed beyond expectation. She's got the power!
GO SEE HER PERFORM!
