Immolation at Gramercy Theatre, 2013 (more by Greg Cristman)
We've been talking a lot about the absolutely loaded 2014 Maryland Deathfest lineup this year. It's going to be a doozy, but if 50+ bands isn't enough, MDF has announced an official pre-fest party at Ottobar on Wednesday, May 21 with performances by Immolation, Misery Index, Black Breath and Noisem. Tickets just went on sale.
There will also be a screening of Welcome to Deathfest, the 45-minute long documentary covering the rise of the monolithic Maryland festival that's become the gold standard in American heavy metal events.
Here's some info about the pre-fest show straight from MDF--note, MDF passes don't work for the show, and take a taxi!:
Where is the Ottobar?Full MDF lineup below and flyer below...
2549 N Howard St, Baltimore, MD 21218. If you are staying at a hotel in the downtown area near any of the other MDF venues, please note that the Ottobar is not walking distance from those venues. A taxi would be your best bet to reach the Ottobar.
