I wanna be a rockstar...

I stumbled through my door wednesday night from my first of what I assume to be many Mickey Avalon concerts, and had a tuna melt as a precaution to my inevitable hangover. I found Mickey to be surprisingly sexy; his tattooed torso is androgynous in a way that is reminiscent of old prince music videos. The glitter, glamour and girls smoking cigarettes on stage make his performance clearly about more than just music. His raunchy play-school rhymes had the audience wet between the legs, and the little girls screaming for reasons they’re yet to understand. The entire scene was mesmerizing if nothing else. Mickey Avalon is a true testament to todays entertainment industry, and embodies the rock-star we would all love to be if only life were that short. The PRICKS opened for Mickey as their first show with RVCA. They were welcomed with open arms as the crowd peaked at only 9 p.m. I have been to more PRICKS shows than I can count and they never fail to entertain me. I can say with confidence that this was their best performance to date. For those of you who think you know you don't like their music; you clearly haven’t been to a show recently. Their overall aggressive tone has been brought down a few decimals making Mike Brophys ingenious lyrics all the more powerful. These boys have been hard at work for a long time, and they continue to churn out hit-worthy songs. They possess the energy of constantly teetering on the brink of stardom. Click on PRICKS to listen to songs and check out show dates: become a part of the movement!! xoxo
