As a frequenter of Nellie's, though it's a bit of a drive from DeKalb, the venue is pretty much just a larger version of Otto's. The crowds are usually pretty awesome, the security staff is competent, and it's just a good-feeling place (that has a Metra station right next to it).

Yeah ive been there too but the distance is the issue and was the best part of the ottos gig. Smallish and close.

What, did they finally realize what everyone was saying in that "How the hell is Gwar gonna fit in here?"

Thank you DeKalb county board for imposing archaic "obscenity laws" that GWAR hasn't come across in nearly 15 years (according to the band).

It's because the city has a huge beef with Otto's and is basically trying to take them out them any chance they get, which is weird seeing as how Otto's (despite not be my first choice in DeKalb to see a show [The House]} is definitely one of the nicer large bars in town and isn't filled with super-bros.

I still say Otto's isn't that much smaller than the Canopy Club in Urbana and they fit fine down there.
