    No Trivia: The future of Baltimore club is getting sampled in a crappy J. Lo song
    -A tragic optimism has taken over the Baltimore club scene these past couple of years. Everybody is finally getting pretty damned realistic about the possibility of a local producer or DJ blowing up properly and "making it," which is to say, we're all...
