Montauk's locally owned Whalebone Creative and the popular nightlife website The Jumpoff.com invited Rapper Mickey Avalon out to Montauk this weekend. His sweaty performance, along with Chanel West Coast's, kicked off the grand opening of The Washout, a new bar in town.
The Whalebone Creative team was especially excited to host the event, because of Mickey's close friendship with surf legend Andy Irons. The evening started with a pre-party hosted at The Whalebone Creative store. After grabbing fresh WhaleBone gear, the crew took off to the show.
In addition to his performance the opening show was rapper Chanel West Coast, aka the chick on MTV's Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory. As you can guess these guys can party hard. All we can say is that we hope there will be another event hosted by them soon!
