Dave Navarro Returns to Erotica LA

LOS ANGELES - Dave Navarro returns to Erotica LA for his third annual appearance on Saturday, June 7 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The former Jane's Addiction and Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist will celebrate his 41st birthday at Erotica LA, meeting and greeting his fans and industry friends. His appearance begins early with an interview by the AVN Live crew and ends at the Sexopolis After Party.

Navarro will join Joanna Angel, Tera Patrick and Evan Seinfield to judge POWER 106 FM's "Show Your Ink" Tattoo contest, hosted by radio personality David 'Tattoo' Gonzolez. In addition, Navarro will give away an autographed bass guitar and present at the F.A.M.E. Awards.

"We love Dave," said Bonnie Shapiro, spokesperson for Erotica LA. "The crowds go crazy over him. He's cool, talented, and dynamic.  He's gone from mainstream to adult and back again. For Dave, it's about lifestyle, and we're thrilled he loves coming to ELA."

Most recently, Navarro co-hosted Playboy TV's Red Carpet Show for the 2008 AVN Adult Movie Awards Show broadcast on Showtime. Last year, he debuted the hour-long, weekly "Spread Entertainment" program online.

Navarro said he was attracted to doing a show on the Internet because of the lack of censorship. "I want to use the Internet to support artists and see things that are out there that other corporate structures aren't allowing us to see," he said. "With satellite TV, the Internet, magazines, there are so many options, and it seems we're only seeing the same five things."

Erotica LA runs Friday, June 6 through Sunday, June 8 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.  Advance tickets are on sale through Ticketweb.com, and fans receive a $5 discount for booking early. Tickets are also available on site.
