Back in early August I had the privilege of interviewing a bunch of cigarette smoking, horse owing, smart, snotty, wise-cracking, kids on the cusp of graduating. Good stuff. Well, soon after I stopped by Mao Livehouse for a show organized by said kids and well, yes, they have much to learn, there’s something beguiling in seeing high schoolers lay it all bare on stage.

High school kids deserve their moment in the sun too – check out more from Watermelon Can and 95th Factory below.
