Mickey Avalon and guests bring the heat to Sacramento

Rap artists brought down the stage at Ace of Spades on Second Saturday.

K-Ottic (Kenny Giacomini) took to the stage with special guests rapper Quen and singer Sunnie Williams.

Originally from Virgina, K-Ottic became a Sactown native when he attended high school at Bear River High School.

Lyrically, K-Ottic lacked a natural continuous flow, but had decent beats to engage the crowd.

Although K-Ottic has some work to do in polishing his sound, the crowd was supportive and enjoyed his performance.

Female vocalist Sunnie came out for the song "One Time."

The song was a creative blend of K-Ottic rapping and Sunnie singing on the chorus. Even thought K-Ottic didn’t do too much to get the crowd hyped up, the crowd enjoyed his set.

Next up was a trio that changed the energy with their collective and engaging sound.

Rock & Rhyme brought something that is rarely seen in the music scene right now.

Composed of drummer Justin Barnes, deejay Matt Cali and emcee Nick Wilrich, this group brought a funky sound to the stage.

With the DJ spinning hits ranging from electro to rap, the drums brought in a rock feel to the show. The only down side to their performance was there was no originality to their songs. It would have been cool to see them perform original songs, and get a feeling of what their creative side was like.

The final opener was a Livermore native and rapper, Dirt.

Not to be confused with Dirt Nasty, Dirt had a strong presence on stage. With just a DJ in the background, he made his personable lyrics strong with an intense stage energy.

Finally, it was time for the headlining act, Mickey Avalon, to hit the stage.

Avalon received a huge fan base after the release of the single "Jane Fonda" from his 2006 self-titled debut album.

Most know him for his outrageous lyrics based on his heavily rough lifestyle of drugs and prostitution.

As Avalon proceeded to the stage, the song "Hey Mickey" was playing loudly as the crowd danced and cheered for him to take the stage.

Known for a female entourage, Mickey proceeded to the stage with a military-style hat and a blonde model that acted as a prop on stage.

With his gritty lyrics and flamboyant presence, the audience enjoyed his always-memorable performance.
