2 Live Crew Plays White Room on Friday, November 20
Downtown-type promoters love booking 2 Live Crew. (It hasn't been too long since they played the Vagabond, and there were those shows at the old Studio A before that.) This always creates a magical mash-up of a crowd that falls along a very, very wide irony spectrum. The thing is, no matter what kind of stupid outfits people may wear to a 2 Live Crew show downtown, or how openly they express their enthusiasm, underneath it all pretty much everyone loves the Crew. While other people grew up on a childhood memories full of some kind of sugary pop music, if you grew up in Miami, your childhood memories are full of cousins' backyard parties with a rental DJ playing "Pop That Coochie."
