immolation

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?
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.

How much are tickets for this show?
$20.

What time does the MDF documentary begin?
7:30 pm

What time do bands begin?
8:30 pm

Will this show sell out?
Yes.

Can I use my Ottobar season pass?
No. These passes won't be accepted at the pre-fest party.
