While his career spans almost a decade, Mickey Avalon is not a household name . . . yet. Popular in the party circuit, Avalon crafts intricate rhymes that usually result in double entendres potent enough to make the hardest rapper blush. Laced with allusions to an ostensibly confusing upbringing, Avalon takes a no-holds-barred approach to his lyrics. He is frank, refreshing and the first person you would invite to your party the minute your parents left town. Since house parties are a thing of the past, however, you can catch Avalon live in support of his new album, Loaded, at The...

When one is attending a Mickey Avalon show, scantily clad stage dancers and even scantilier-clad audience members are to be expected. His show are essentially a hybrid of a filthy, yet somehow glamorous Hollywood nightclub, Las Vegas and a college house party. That's exactly what took place June 15 at the Knitting Factory, when the glam rapper took the stage in his standard skinny jeans, cut-off tank and leather jacket, topped with the same captain's hat he donned at his December 2011 performance at China Blue. Avalon quickly ditched the hat and jacket, and left his grommet belt hanging undone. The quirky...

Sometimes we all need to say hello to our hedonistic side and delight in some debauchery. The occasionally appalling and always-fun hip-hop of Mickey Avalon, who will play the Knitting Factory Friday, June 15, can provide just the right release. Avalon's stop at the Knit won't be his first visit to the City of Trees--he's rocked his low-slung skinny jeans on that stage a few times and gave a mini-performance at China Blue's Christmas-themed party in December 2011. Avalon has transformed personal tragedy into triumph and gained notoriety in the past few years with songs featured in films such as the The Hangover....
