Friday: Malenski Family Fundraiser

Oct. 23

It's been more than a year since Tom Malenski, a bouncer at the Ottobar, was fatally stabbed outside the rock club. If you've been by the Ottobar in the time since then, you know that the staff, which is much more like a family, certainly hasn't forgotten—pictures of Malenski and other homages still hang behind both bars. So it's no surprise they would make the effort to help the Malenski family out. And holy shit, what an awesome way to do it. Members of War On Women, Iron Cross, Misery Index, Pig Destroyer, Dag Nasty, Swiz, and Jesuseater will play punk-rock favorites, which you can then attempt to sing with them. It's not often you can donate to a great cause AND be punk as fuck. 9 p.m., The Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St., (410) 662-0069,, $5 suggested donation.
