Mickey Avalon LIVE at Monks in Missoula
Monks is bringing yet another rad show to downtown Missoula this fall. LA's own, Mickey Avalon, will be hooking up a live show at Monks Friday November 4th.
Be prepared for a lyrical mastermind spit some real truth into the mic. With songs that range from dark and deep, to Mickey's famous song about his "friend below the belt."
According to the official event page:
With a childhood rough enough to guarantee him rock star success, by the time he was out of his teenage years -- at least according to the few details he's given -- Mickey Avalon had sold pot (with his mother), been addicted to heroin and dope, worked as a graffiti artist in L.A., converted to Orthodox Judaism (his parents were both non-practicing Jews, and his paternal grandparents were survivors of Auschwitz), got married and had a daughter, prostituted himself for drug money, watched his father die, and found his sister's dead body. All of this gave ample material for his rhymes, which he started writing after his pal, the former MTV VJ Simon Rex, encouraged him to compose his own songs.
Show is 18+, with tickets $18 in advance and $20 at the door.
Tickets are available online and at Rockin Rudy's.
