Mickey Avalon, Andre Legacy

When: Sat., May 5 2012

MICKEY AVALON His mean streets CV reads like a Lifetime movie developed by Lou Reed — drug dealer, junkie, prostitute. But don’t expect Mickey Avalon to drop real danger amid his poppy trash rap. Instead, the ambisexual glam rapper mixes drug-addled debauchery with Radio Disney, in a cocktail that’s more Lil’ Kim than Eminem. Still, his slippery sexuality is a nice ’n’ sleazy antidote to the lazy machismo of gangsta, and his eagerness to entertain is endearing in a love-me/fuck-me way. With second-tier bubblegum glam rockers like The Sweet and Slade as spiritual forbears, Mickey Avalon is one hell of a good time Charlie. A guilty pleasure, if only there was something to feel guilty about. (Pat Moran)
