Adult audiences

If unholy guitar machinations aren’t your bag but cold-hearted electro-goth stylings are – then you should drive up to Baltimore to see Detroit’s finest electro-clash band Adult playing at the Ottobar.

This husband and wife duo have been crafting some of the world’s best off-beat and down-right jilted dance music for the last 7 years. Recently upgraded to a trio, they’re new album “Gimme Trouble” is a perfect blend of DIY electronics and punk attitude mixed with a dash of Siouxsie Sioux.

I’ve seen Adult twice, once at a festival in Spain and once at the Ottobar, both shows were crazy – manic dance-parties set to Jack Vulpine’s bizarre pulse-beats and Nicola Kuperus pseudo-fascist vocals. Adult are definitely worth the drive and the $15 sheckels admission.
