The Ottobar rocks nightly with local and national bands ranging from hard-core, punk, and art rock to rockabilly, acoustic, and all ages shows. Nights without a booked band reach entertainment heights with special events, DJ dance parties, performance art, and karaoke.
Depressing, banal vignettes doubtlessly culled from the personal Life Experiences of writer/director Michael Bowen and occasional City Paper contributors Todd Evans and John Ellsberry punctuate the latest installment of the annoyingly lowercase djs, a blatant Yacht Rock ripoff once again proving director Bowen can never stoop low or pander aggressively enough. Following the lives of several reprehensible members of a mythic Underground DJ “scene,” featuring thinly disguised versions of actual Baltimore inhabitants Laura Webster (probably blackmailed into performing), Jason Dove (of Jason Dove Diaries “fame”), Nicolette Le Faye (whoever that is), and a so-called “special appearance” by Jason Willet (which we assume means before noon and working a full-time job), and insufficiently obscured from the reality of Our Baltimore, djs 4: “Audi 5000” glamorizes the nihilistic antics of drug-addled, sexually deviant, self-absorbed imbeciles, providing dangerous role models for the further destruction of the moral and intellectual fiber of Our Fair City, Our Nation’s Youth, and ultimately Our Nation. If you are not prepared to have your intellect vastly underestimated, tonight’s venue, the Ottobar (coincidentally co-owned by Mr. Bowen) will provide access to a variety of vulgar, low-priced intoxicants, all the better with which to drink oneself into a stupor before and during tonight’s screening, which we will avoid at all costs, staying safely at home with a bottle of pre-war Latvian Honey Liqueur while our manservant monitors the so-called entertainment via reports from many of the jaded, narcissistic participants’ accounts on “Twitter,” whatever that is.
