Mickey Avalon / Beauty Bar / Las Vegas / April 3 / Tickets
Mickey Avalon’s debut self-titled solo album was released Nov. 7, 2006 on Interscope/Shoot to Kill Records in association with MySpace Records. Avalon blends dark, lewd, and crizzled lyrical hooks with hip-hop beats. Avalon is friends with Antonio, who encouraged Avalon to write lyrics and perform when Mickey was broke and living on Anton’s sofa.
Avalon soon gained a following in the Los Angeles nightclub scene. He has since enjoyed a surge in popularity partly due to promotion of his music on MySpace. Avalon is a member of the trio Dyslexic Speedreaders with Simon Rex (AKA Dirt Nasty) and Andre Legacy. The group tours occasionally with Avalon’s solo act.
