Thursday, March 5th – Animal Collective DJ Set
Ottobar, 2549 N. Charles St. at 8:00 PM – $15

Seeing Animal Collective at Ottobar (unless your a friend or family member) is pretty much out of the realm of possibility these days so you will have to settle for a DJ set. Enjoy 1/2 of the famous Baltimore group, while Deakin and Geologist give you some super sweet and sweaty dance tunes. Get your ticket now because it could sell out.

More info here.

Friday, March 6th – Baltimore Rap Round Robin w/ Height Keech / Eze Jackson / Passalacqua / DI / Symantyx / Drew Scott / Clear Channel / Vans_Westly
The Crown, 1910 N. Charles St. at 9:00 PM – $6

This is a pretty killer lineup including one of my favorite Baltimore rappers, Eze Jackson. Get there on time and stay all night. I’m sure The Crown will have some sort of very cheap and very boozy drink special.

More info here.

Saturday, March 7th – Known Ghost / Arab Spring / DaikonDaikon / Pelvis Presley
Hosteling International – Baltimore, 17 W. Mulberry St. at 9:00 PM – donation 

This is a rad idea. The local chapter of Hosteling International is hosting a show on Saturday night featuring some local acts including Arab Spring. Bring donation money so this can keep happening.
