The show, which will be streamed live on Twitch, will include a Street Fighter 2 tournament and costume contest. Garden Grove will also be serving a Street Fighter-themed beer, Hundred Hop Slap.

Anyone who can produce music this soulful and with such sharp lyrics deserves recognition: the fact that Ivy chooses to make the album freely available is a testament not just to her character, but also how much the music deserves to be heard. Rich Hims
