On September 28, 2013, many poets around the world will make their voices heard. To declare the change they'd like to see most in the U.S. and throughout the international community, events are being staged worldwide as part of 100 Thousand Poets for Change. This night of poetry and activism in Chicago asks the questions: What is freedom of expression? Is surveillance dangerous? Who chooses the information our government can access and censor?

They've been promoting their new CD with a tour, and have been getting a lot of buzz -- with coverage in The Wall Street Journal, Paste Magazine, WBGO (88.3FM in Newark, NJ), and other media outlets. No BS! also released RVA All Day last month; check it out! Check out the Borderbend media gallery for "Charles Mingus at 90," a year-long celebration of Charles Mingus' life and legacy that happened last year.
