Looking for a fun, local, and unique show to see in 2011? Look no further than "Hard Core Logo: Live" which will be playing live at the RIckshaw Theater for 2 weeks.

The show is about a has-been punk rocker, Joe Dick, who had his 15 minutes of fame when he was the front man for a Vancouver rock group called "Hard Core Logo". Currently living in East Vancouver and without any prospects, Dick decides to get the group back together for one last, ill-fated tour.

Michael Scholar, Jr., the force behind The Black Rider, adapts this cult classic into a punk-ass piece of music theatre, featuring original music by D.O.A.’s Joe Keithley

Note: The show does contain coarse language and may not be suitable for all audiences.
