SUPER ART FIGHT RETURNS TO THE OTTOBAR WITH JAPANESE PUNK ROCKERS PEELANDER-Z Four years, over 60 live events, and faces melted up and down the east coast - since their inception in June 2008, Super Art Fight has proven to be one of the most unpredictable, hilarious and jaw-dropping events in live entertainment, and on Friday night, September 21st, 2012, they return to Baltimore’s Ottobar! Self-described as “The Greatest Live Art Competition in the Known Universe”, Super Art Fight mixes some of the nation’s greatest artistic talent from the worlds of graphic novels, apparel design, illustration, tattooing and webcomics and puts a unique spotlight on them, allowing them to become over the top, ridiculous characters. This fusion of improv art, creative competition and pro-wrestling style storytelling is a truly unique art form and no two shows are alike. Each artist is given a starting topic to draw, and 25 minutes to out do their opponent, but every five minutes, a wrench is thrown in the gears, as the crowd-sourced “WHEEL OF DEATH” provides new topics for each artist. At the end of the bout, the live audience chooses the victor via their cheers and applause, battle of the bands style. On Friday night, September 21st, the Ottobar will be home to four bouts, featuring some of Super Art Fight’s most beloved talents, such as defending Super Art Fight Champion Brandon J. Carr, the villainous TEAM IMPACT, the fashionable Team Sexyfulness and the creative creature herself - Stompadon! All bouts are hosted and commentated upon by Marty Day and Ross Nover. If that wasn’t enough, that evening Super Art Fight will be host to not one, but two musical acts - the amazing openers, NOISY ZEN, providing some of the weirdest and most fun rock covers you’ve ever heard, and headliners, PEELANDER-Z, a Japanese action-comic punk rock band! Last time Super Art Fight and Peelander-Z combined forces, the Ottobar came dangerously close to capacity, so we highly recommend getting tickets in advance! Tickets for Super Art Fight’s return to the Ottobar are on sale NOW at MissionTix.com for just $15. The show card is currently being announced at SuperArtFight.com, and attendees are encouraged to submit topics for the “WHEEL OF DEATH” on SuperArtFight.com prior to showtime. The Ottobar is located at 2549 N. Howard Street in Baltimore, Maryland, zip 21218. All show talent is available for press inquiries, and the official show poster is attached to this email.

This week (and the next) is all about comics baby! Starting the weekend off we have the Baltimore Comic-con! In my opinion this is one of the few remaining ‘comics only’ conventions that can still bring the big names and crowds. You can learn more and find tix @ www.baltimorecomiccon.com. After you are done perusing the in and outs of BCC2012, you should head over to The OttoBar (also in Baltimore) to check out the Sci-Fi themed Metal show, Metal Quest. And a lil copy/paste here:
