Other performances included:
(The Sparow really like these guys. Me - not so much)
The Union Line
(another one of my favorites)
And the highlight of all the performances last night, Mickey Avalon (he accepted the award for Best Hip Hop artist with a drink in hand so naturally he hit the stage with one as well)
Mickey Avalon had himself some big booty hos...and DAYUM that blonde has got the junk!
Other highlights from the show included:
A rad little documentary about the Orange County music scene, which was narrated by Jim Washburn and included footage and interviews with: Leo Fender, The Righteous Brothers, The Harmony Park Ballroom, the man who "added Jesus to the end of every sentence" because he was so desperate to play a show, Dennis Lluy and many more. The short piece really made me proud to be from Orange County, so suck it Los Angeles! Ok, just kidding. We cool.
"Corvette Sandy" was sort of dressed like she was ready for the prom or my 15nera. I LOVED IT!
