Naughty and nasty
Let’s begin with the story of Mickey Avalon: A tough childhood, a musical salvation and a return with a brand new album, Loaded, which takes listeners on a journey through the seedy streets of Hollyweird via sleek electro-synth beats, playful rhymes and straight-up rock. Do you enjoy excess and explosive sexual energy? Avalon provides. You’ve also got Dirt Nasty, former MTV VJ and dialed-in rap artist. This gig happens at the Mateel Community Center. Advance tickets are $28, show starts at 8 p.m., all ages.
Here’s a thing happening at the Jambalaya: the Mudshow, a monthly revue of “the absolute finest in local circus performance and smokin' hot live blues and surf rock from the Bonky Bonky Band.” If you like a main dish consisting of feats of strength, dexterity and “sheer stupidity” with a side of live music, this seems like a fine option. The poster says, “Absolutely no laptops. Guaranteed.” Cover is $10, doors at 9 p.m., show at 10 p.m., 21-and-over.
