Aesop Rock rocks

Hip-hop master and Definitive Jux recording artist Aesop Rock will hold it down Tuesday at the Ottobar.

The wordsmith will appear in support of his much-anticipated new solo effort, Bazooka Tooth. And though he's billed with other so-called underground artists, including MR. Lif, Murs, S.A. Smash and DJ Fakts One, the ultra-talented Aesop won't be up-and-coming for long.

Catch the Def Jux kingpin before he steps out of the shadows and into the national spotlight.

Doors open at 9 p.m., and the show is scheduled to start at 10 p.m. Tickets are $13.

The Ottobar is at 2549 N. Howard St. For more information, call 410-662-0069 or visit www.theottobar.com.

Glam rock at Recher

Glam rock guru Bret Michaels will strut his stuff tonight at the Recher Theatre. The Pittsburgh native, who recently released a new album, Songs of Life, on his own Poor Boy Records label, will take the stage after the Rob Byer Band plays a set.

Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show will begin around 8 p.m. Tickets are $25.

The Recher Theatre is at 512 York Road. For more information, call 410-337-7178 or visit www.rechertheatre.com.

Veteran Fleshtones

Rock show veterans and workhorse act the Fleshtones will break it down for the young 'uns tomorrow at the Mojo Room and Lounge.

The Brooklyn-based quartet, a fixture on the small-club circuit for more than 25 years, will headline the 9 p.m. event after rockers the Things set it off.

Doors open around 8 p.m. Call the club for cover charge information.

The Mojo Room and Lounge is at 4825 Belair Road. For more information, call 410-325-7427 or visit www.mojo balto.com.

Rap at the Ottobar

Raekwon will hit the Ottobar Saturday. The New York rapper and member of the influential hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan hasn't released a solo album in almost four years, but he can still tear it up on the mike.

C-Rayz Walz and People Under the Stairs will also throw down at this show, which is scheduled to start around 9 p.m. Tickets are $16.

The Ottobar is at 2549 N. Howard St. For more information, call 410-662-0069 or visit www.theottobar.com.

Sonar's sounds

Drum 'n' bass powerhouse DJ Zinc will spin tomorrow at Sonar. Zinc has been a force in the scene for more than a decade and is one of the creative minds behind British electronic music label True Playaz.

He'll take the decks late, after a few sets from Sebastian and MC Armanni. The cover charge is $10 before 10 p.m. and $15 after.

Sonar is at 407 E. Saratoga St. For more information, call 410-327-8333 or visit www .sonar.us.
