  • Mickey Factz
    Age: 23
    Where do you live? My heart resides in the City itself, so everyone and everywhere I go is either a neighbor or my neighborhood.
    What's your style of music? Innovative, groundbreaking, life-changing, awe-inspiring, uplifting
    Site of your first NYC performance: Wow, that's a great question. We were just talking about this the other night. If I'm not mistaken, it was a club that is now called Touch. I only did two songs that night.
    Favorite venues to hear live music: S.O.B.'s, Highline Ballroom, Hammerstein Ballroom, Madison Square Garden 
    Best band in NYC right now: Mickey Factz and the Red Pills, without a doubt. They are the future's past.
    What can we expect at your CMJ show? High energy and a rush of adrenaline like never before.
    Do you catch any flack for wearing your glasses as an MC? Are they for style, or are they prescribed? They are prescribed, but since I am Mickey Factz, they are also stylish. I don't catch flack at all for 'em. They emphasize my look.

    Mickey Factz plays Webster Hall on October 23 and BLVD on October 24. Hear his music at
