Tonights Slam U semifinals at Playhouse Square pit poetry-spewing teens against one another. For the past two months, local kids have been boning up on their rhymes at workshops and practice slams. They take the stage in front of a crowd tonight, reciting original hip-hop-inspired poems. Judges and audience members vote for the best. When it all shakes loose, the victors head to next weeks finals (and the slam nationals after that).
