Hometown: Baltimore

Current members: Stevie Diamond, lead singer; Matt Gabbs, lead guitarist; Brian Mattes, bass player; Buck, drums; Shane Wiggins, rhythm guitar.

Founded in: Spring 2004

Style: Rock and punk

Influenced by: New York Dolls, Dead Boys, Chuck Berry, Iggy Pop and the Stooges

Notable: The band got together because they were bored with watching live acts.

Quotable: Stevie Diamond on what rich preppies listen to: "I don't think they'd dig us. They probably drop their bank rolls on the ground and listen to the change roll around. Or they listen to Phish -- or some awful band like that."

Check out Fishnet Stalkers tomorrow at the Ottobar. Doors open at 9 p.m. Tickets are $3. The Ottobar is at 2549 N. Howard St. For more information, call 410-662-0069 or visit www.theottobar.com.
