Sweatshop Union

When: Mon., March 14 2011

Lyrics about money, fast cars and hos don't get laid over Sweatshop Union's beats. This "hip-hop collective" would much rather speak to world issues and ethical struggles. And guess what? They don't suck — rather the opposite. Melding old-school rap sampling with dope electronic beats and a laid-back rhyme style, these award-winners out of British Columbia have produced five albums and toured the world. They just dropped a record called The Bill Murray EP, which they're sure to draw on tonight at their 9 o'clock all-ages show at the Black Sheep (2106 E. Platte Ave., blacksheeprocks.com). Tickets are $10. — Claire Jencks
