DJ Dog Dick.[/caption] We're glad to see DJ Dog Dick come back to Baltimore, where he used to live and perform some of the crazier shows we've seen. With Dog Dick bringing us the weirdo avant-pop of LP The Life Stains, tonight's gig at the Crown should be no exception. UMBC's Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture presents Jem Cohen, who will discuss his video series on the Occupy Wall Street movement in New York that kicked off in 2011. Cohen had this to say of his work, Gravity Hill Newsreels: Occupy Wall Street, per the event's Facebook page: "In regards to Occupy Wall Street, when friends asked me where the newsreels were, I decided to plunge in and make some myself. We knew there'd eventually be many documentaries made about the phenomenon and that there were already short advocacy pieces in support of the movement (as well as YouTube slams against it). My own interest lay elsewhere: in a kind of reporting based on direct observation that expresses solidarity without propaganda, while leaving room for experimentation and lyricism." From the Short List: "98 Rock's Noise In The Basement brings local bands to the Ottobar. North Carolina rockers Awkward Friends stop at the Charm City Art Space as they travel up and down the East Coast. Baltimore prog metal band Balor's Eye plays the Metro Gallery with Fallujah and Cognitive."
