If we’re catching a gig in Baltimore, we like to do so at Ottobar. It’s not a particularly storied venue; Ottobar has only been around since 1997, so it’s a relatively new spot. But it’s quickly built an enviable reputation as the best small(ish) space for live music in town, by dint of booking acts that range from the utterly indie to some powerful big names like KRS-One, Animal Collective and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. It helps, of course, that the sightlines are excellent, the sound system is rocking and the beer is pretty cheap.
