Mickey Avalon, The Sexbots 

When: Thu., July 11, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $20
Mickey Avalon's bio reads like a West Coast reboot of a Lou Reed song. The alleged ex-model/ex-junkie/ex-hooker/current rapper is noted for getting booed off the stage during a 2007 Red Hot Chili Peppers tour, but a few years ago after hearing his catchiest song, "Jane Fonda," I went to check out one of his shows. It was a mind-blowing, campy atrocity of glam rap featuring a bed on stage, "sexy" backup dancers climbing a chain-link fence backdrop, and, unfortunately, a lot of songs less catchy than the hit. I figured I wouldn't be hearing much from him again, but recently his new single "Girlfriend" has gathered some attention. I wouldn't necessarily recommend going to Dante's to listen to a sleazy ex-model from LA rap about his dick, but this is Mickey Avalon, and his shtick is bigger than yours. BREE MCKENNA
