SHOW REVIEW: Dirt Nasty & Mickey Avalon in Detroit (with video)

Rappers Mickey Avalon and Dirt Nasty have a long history with each other. Upon moving to Los Angeles, Mickey was befriended by ex-MTV VJ Simon Rex who encouraged Avalon to rap and ended up collaborating with him. The two began passing out demos to Hollywood clubs and soon developed a following among fans of the Santa Cruz nightclub scene. The rest is music history as Simon adopted the name Dirt Nasty and him and Mickey soon created careers out of performing catchy rap tunes.
The two recently released the free downloadable EP Married To The Game and are currently on tour to support it, along with their solo work. The duo recently made a stop in Detroit and MCB was there to capture all the action.
St. Andrews Hall was packed on a Tuesday night with much anticipation of the reunited Dirt Nasty and Mickey Avalon for their Married To The Game 2016 tour. The show opened with a short but high energy set by local rapper/producer AJAX. St. Andrews was literally vibrating from the bass coming from the speakers. The vibrating would continue throughout the entire evening.
Dirt Nasty was up next and opened with "Fuck Me, I'm Famous" off his album Nasty As I Wanna Be. Dirt let it be known that he was in awe of the packed house and expressed his love for Detroit throughout the set. At one point he requested a Mexican female from the audience to come up on stage as he needed one for his ode to a Latino lover entitled "Cracker Ass Fantastic". A girl ended up being pulled on stage, but it turned out she was Arabic. Dirt told her to just say she was Mexican and joked about her being Albanian.
Dirt performed songs of his two full length albums as well as some material off his new album Dirty Nasty Sux which was just released this week. During his set Dirt brought up the fact he was smelling marijuana. As he was asking where it was coming from, an audience member through a joint on stage which Dirt took a hit from. Dirt Nasty was having a blast on stage and mixed his comedic talents with his ability to rap and put on a well received show. Dirt had much communication with the audience and requested to borrow a large gold chain from an audience member and wore it for his popular song "1980". Dirt Nasty finished his 35 minute set with the song, but would return later on in the show.

                                       Dirt Nasty performs "Fuck Me, I'm Famous" LIVE
Next up was "Mr. Right" himself- Mickey Avalon. Mickey opened his set with "Waiting To Die" off his self titled debut album. During the song he was joined by his stage dancer who strutted around the stage showing off her assets as well as moves to match. She stayed on stage to entice the crowd even further as Mickey went into his next song "Mr. Right". Mickey performed songs off his two full length albums, his "I Get Even" EP as well as non album tracks "Bitter Sweet Surprise" and "Red Light District".
Mickey's set had some technical difficulties involving his backing tracks and at one point had to restart his song "I Get Even" because of them. He apologized for some of the errors and kept the party going. Mickey's dancer had several outfit changes during his set. One included a ski mask and whip during "I'm Hot" and a cheerleader outfit during "Fuckin Em All".

                                               Mickey Avalon performs "I'm Hot" LIVE
50 minutes into his own set Mickey brought out Dirt Nasty on stage to perform the song "What Do You Say?" with him. The two collaborated on the song for The Hangover Soundtrack in 2009. Dirt Nasty would stay on stage for the rest of the set and the duo performed songs of their new Married To The Game EP including "My Girlfriend", "Netflix and Chill", and "Do It All Over". Dirt would stick around and act as a hype man as Mickey performed more solo tracks including "Jane Fonda" and "Tight Blue Jeans". Breasts were exposed by a female audience member who was on top of her companions shoulders at the request of Dirt Nasty before Mickey began the song "Stoke Me". 
Dirt asked the audience "What is the one song you wanna here?" before closing out the evening with their song "My Dick". They invited the ladies in the audience to join them on stage and a dozen of them obliged. They danced and gyrated against Mickey, Dirt, and each other as they sang along to the lyrics. As the song ended they quickly approached Dirt Nasty for selfies which he was gracious to do with them.

Third Man Records Presents: AUDIO SOCIAL DISSENT 2016

Wednesday, February 24th 2016
Marble Bar, Detroit


Wolf Eyes are the rabid beasts of Trip Metal & have been plowing thru new tunnels of the underworld since 1997. Born in the dead, dread-filled haunted hills of Michigan, Nate Young, John Olson and James Baljo temper pure audio stunn of homemade post-nuclear terror & claustrophobic atmospheres to produce a shattered and confusing horrorvision since Bo Diddley dropped the duct taped warhead on all humans in 2024.. Wolf Eyes is total music/trip mental: equally at home within but also apart from the worlds of electronic music, street shadows,and musique concrete among others. A discography of over 150 releases, relentless touring, and endless creativity ranging from visual art to creating new instruments has served to make Wolf Eyes a lone primal planet adrift and dribbling in a universe of hunted enemies.

Timmy's Organism-  Fronting some of the most original, compelling and unpredictable bands (not only in Detroit, but the world) for over two decades, Tim Lampinen's work with the Epileptix, Clone Defects, and Human Eye has always held a rapturous cult following. Yet his work with his current trio, Timmy's Organism, presents Lampinen (aka Timmy Vulgar) along with bassist Jeff Giant and drummer Blake Hill, ready for their close-up. With Heartless Heathen the group touches on their artistic and spiritual forbears of Captain Beefheart and Destroy All Monsters, while amply ramping up the slop culture rapture of classic punk 'n' roll like Chrome, Crime, and the Damned as well as contemporaries like Thee Oh Sees. There's a reason why Lampinen won a Kresge Grant for his work with his bandshe creates music that borders on art, live shows that border on theater. It's high time the rest of the world takes notice. Are you ready?

Video- There's no band that can lay claim to being the true best in the business, except VIDEO.

GIVEAWAY: "Three Condoms for Sarah" by local author Eric Wojciechowski

I gave you the skinny on this book as soon as I was finished reading it. Now, Goodreads is giving away THREE copies of the book, so you can find out for yourself — go visit Goodreads for details.

by Eric Wojciechowski

When a betamale decides it isn't worth it anymore to stay in the dating scene but can't help giving it one last attempt with a woman who is “different” than the rest.

It might be a true story.
Probably not.
It's a Gospel.
A Gospel of a Feminarchy.


David Anshire sits on the crown of the Statue of Liberty, brought there in a failed effort to find Sarah Montgomery. Years before, he placed a scathing personal ad that brought him to her attention. Both, disillusioned with the relationship bubble, set out to explore an alternative.

Now, law enforcement is coming to get him, to yank him off the head of the Statue. David reconsiders letting his feelings for Sarah get in the way of being more logical and bides his time waiting, hoping that she'll call him, to explain herself, before the police officer negotiating with him loses his patience.

Somewhere in the city, the fire that consumed David's apartment is being extinguished. Somewhere else, the authorities are investigating a riot that broke out in a well to do neighborhood. The all-male participants are having abandonment issues. Sarah is gone and David is going to be a major news story. Again.

Moogfest is Your Pre-Movement Destination

Just a week before Movement storms back into Hart Plaza with a slew of electronic artists and DJs, Moogfest 2016 will take place in Durham, North Carolina May 19 -22. Like Movement, Moogfest 2016 features some of the best electronic artists that ever set finger to knob. Gary Numan will be performing 3 nights and other legendary artists include Laurie Anderson and The Orb will also perform. The list of artists is very expansive and just added some new tremendous acts this week like Grimes and Miike Snow.


In addition to the many electronic artists that will there will be lectures of electronic music and future technology and theory with some of the leaders in innovative thought and education. There will also be exciting art on display and film previews.

To get an early preview of what you will be hearing Moogfest is offering  “Translational Drifts: Volume 2,” a free digital EP series featuring Moogfest artists - past, present and future. Calling on five contemporary Moogfest artists to remix covers of tracks by seminal electronic musicians, Volume 2 spotlights the sonic collaboration and creative cross-pollination that is central to Moogfest’s diverse lineup.

And lastly for some local flavor, several Michigan artists such as Heathered Pearls, Adult., and Kyle Hall are taking part at Moogfest. For an electronic music nerd such as myself, Moogfest is a bucketlist destination that cannot be missed.

Chasing that little bugger: Mardi Gras en Rouge by DC in Detroit

DC is a longtime contributor to the MCB.
She can be reached at [at]

6 February 2016
Detroit/Hamtramck, Michigan

What you need to know about the Nain Rouge is that everything bad that’s happened to you in the past 3 months is his fault. That’s because winter — and any other misfortune — is his doing, and as much as Detroiters tough it out every year, there’s no one who wouldn’t prefer to skip it and head straight to spring. That’s where the Marche du Nain Rouge comes in, chasing the little bugger back into the Detroit River on the first Sunday of Spring.

It’s easy to forget Detroit’s French roots, but you don’t even need it to enjoy a good Mardi Gras party. And that’s what we got on Saturday, 6 February, courtesy the Mardi Gras en Rouge. We don’t have to work hard to find a good reason to party, but in this case, we also got an excuse to feel good about ourselves — the party was a fundraiser for restaurant/museum/music nonprofit Gabriel Hall and one of our favorite recurring events, the Marche du Nain Rouge.

We were asked to “dress to impress, with a touch of red,” and impress we did. The smallish space was comfortably packed with good-lookers in their finery and mandatory masks, bouncing to a regular stream of live music and other entertainment, pressing the flesh, and being merrily mysterious. Soon enough, we were happily munching from the Gabriel Hall buffet, and super tasty Belle Isle Pizza who showed up with a specially-concocted spicy Nain Rouge pizza. It’s not on the menu, but legend has it, if you call and request it, they’ll make one special for you. By the time I was 3 or 4 hurricanes in, that pizza was the highlight of my night.

Oh and the Nain Rouge? Yeah, he had the nerve to show his snarly little face in the midst of our merry-making. We chased him out, but I’m afraid he’s just hiding, waiting to wreak more havoc if we aren’t vigilant. Our chance to banish him for another year is fast approaching, so prepare your battle gear and make sure to come out and make some noise with us in the Marche du Nain Rouge on March 20th.

Marche du Nain Rouge and Gabriel Hall to Throw Mardi Gras Party with Detroit Style

Detroit’s best New Orleans brass band and legendary parade of city spirit are teaming up to throw a masquerade gala that promises to bring some New Orleans heat to the winter chill.

Mardi Gras en Rouge is a masquerade gala to benefit both the Marche du Nain Rouge parade and Gabriel Hall, a restaurant and music venue planned for West Village.

“This is not only going to be a good time, it’s going to help us raise necessary funds so we can get Gabriel Hall’s doors open and share our music and culture with the city,” says Dameon Gabriel, leader of the Gabriel Hall Brass Band and co-founder of Gabriel Hall.

“A Mardi Gras party -- the music, the masks, the spectacle -- is a perfect way to usher in the Marche season,” says Marche organizer Francis Grunow. “The fundraiser will help us expand our community workshops and bring more Detroit neighborhoods into the parade.”

The party will be 8 p.m.-2 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 6, 2016. Guests are asked to dress to impress with a splash of red, and wear Mardi Gras masks. Gabriel Hall’s executive chef will offer a preview of the restaurant's offerings, serving up authentic, delicious New Orleans fare, and the bar will be stocked with Mardi Gras cocktails.

Guests can sip a hurricane, nibble some jambalaya and get down to music from O N E F R E Q and Gabriel Brass Band. Plus there will be entertainment from Lushes LaMoan, Caribbean Mardi Gras Productions, DJ Carleton Gholz and Comedian Emcee John Bell.

All tickets include admission and food. There will be a cash bar. Tickets are $50 in advance, and $60 at the door. VIP is $100 and includes admission, food, two drink tickets, reserved seating, table service, a photo opp with the Nain Rouge, and Mardi Gras swag bag. Advance tickets are available at

All proceeds will benefit Marche du Nain Rouge and Gabriel Hall. The 7th annual Marche du Nain Rouge is a Detroit rite of spring, and takes place March 20, 2016, bringing thousands of people to Midtown to show the spirit of the city. Gabriel Hall is a bar/restaurant which will host live music coming soon to West Village. Gabriel Hall also has a nonprofit branch which serves to preserve the musical Gabriel’s New Orleans and Detroit legacy as well as music outreach to local youths. Find more at and &
