As the very first artist to be signed to MySpace Records, a case could be made that Mickey Avalon
is a “pioneer” of sorts; a case could also be made that building a career on bad tattoos and songs like “My Dick” isn’t very progressive at all. But after a tumultuous year which saw the Hollywood-nightclub rapper fall out with his closest friends and get booed off the stage (twice) opening for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, we should maybe try to be nice to the guy. Thrill to his tales of drugs and prostitutes on Saturday, Dec. 11, at Chrome Lotus. 501 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. 8:30pm. $30. No phone.
