The Ottobar is a longstanding club in Baltimore, MD that’s been open since 1997, moving its location once in 2001. It’s hosted bands ranging from indie-pop to grind and local to international. Like some other venues that have the wherewithal, the club has gotten into livestreaming during the pandemic, but it’s been busy lately in other ways. A two-volume compilation benefiting Baltimore bands appearing on it and the Ottobar is out now on Bandcamp.
All of the tracks, including remixes, demo versions, and live cuts, are exclusive to the comp., called NO STAGEDIVING: A Stage-Free Baltimore Playlist and Ottobar Fundraiser. All of the bands’ tracks are listed in alphabetical order on the compilation, which is good for band name browsing.
If compilations aren’t your thing (or maybe even if they are), and you’d like to support the club in another way, the Ottobar has a variety of merch available too.
