Ottobar, Baltimore, 9/24/99 gig Review

ADAM WEST at the OTTO BAR with TWIN SIX, MUD CITY MANGLERS, SILVER TONGUED DEVIL
When I saw ADAM WEST at POPEFEST this summer, they bored the heck out of me. Their songs were slow and long. The vocalist sounded like Danzig. Not my cup of tea. But Friday night, they surprised me. They picked up the tempo and the songs didn't drag on forever. But, the most memorable part of their set was the dancing accompaniment. A fan in the audience with a cowboy hat tied around his neck decided to do his own strange style of breakdancing at the beginning of the first song. He was literally, down on the floor, writhing around, flipping upside down, banging his head against a bench. The cowboy hat was crushed, and the front floor area was cleared. At the end of the song, he got up and kindly ushered half of the crowd back to the front. Later, TWIN SIX rocked, as usual. The cowboy hat never recovered.
