2 LIVE CREW in concert with guests KIKO
The Ozone Nightclub - 7300 King George Highway, Surrey
Thursday, March 3rd – Advance tickets $15.00 at Ticketmaster

Get ready for the big bad Miami bass sound, the original booty-rap and unforgettable x-rated party rhymes. Rock.It Boy Entertainment presents the outrageous 2 LIVE CREW EXPERIENCE (and their XXX-Rated Dancers) live in concert along with special guests KIKO on Thursday, March 3rd at The Ozone Nightclub in Surrey.

No rap group has stirred more controversy or provoked more heated debate than 2 LIVE CREW. Every decade produces an artist that rips apart the social contract and kicks convention in the you-know-what. In the fifties there was Jerry Lee Lewis, in the sixties it was the Rolling Stones, in the seventies the Sex Pistols. .

2 LIVE CREW came on the scene just a time when independent record labels, aided by new technologies, were taking huge chunks of market share from the established record moguls. The first rule they broke was the language rule, the self-imposed censorship that major labels invoked to keep pop music clean, safe and politically impotent.

The 1989 release As Nasty As They Wanna Be created such a furor that it was actually banned in Florida as obscene material, but nothing could stop the groundswell, and the charges were overturned. All around 2 LIVE CREW the dollars poured in and the battle raged as they were sued for obscenity, plagiarism and anything the guardians of morality could invent. They stirred up free speech debates and First Amendment arguments. Above all they incited dancing and partying and naughty thoughts and blazed a trail of independent business and intellectual freedom.

Stand up for something when Rock.It Boy Entertainment presents 2 LIVE CREW EXPERIENCE (and their XXX-Rated Dancers) live with special guests KIKO on Thursday, March 3rd at the Ozone Nightclub, 7300 King George Highway in Surrey (phone 604-596-8189).
