When last we wrote about Otis Mitchem, the gregarious and good-hearted Zodiac bouncer had just had a burger named after him next door at the Green Line Grill. That was four years ago, but Otis is still very much Otis. These days, he’s the gregarious and good-hearted bartender at Bar-K. This Friday, the local music scene will be throwing an Otisfest birthday celebration at the Triple Nickel. The event will also be a reunion show for local punk outfits Murder Hat and Stab Crew, who are both feverishly relearning their old material as you read this. Also sharing the bill are local legends The Nobodys and accordion terrorist Chris Mandile. So exactly which birthday are we talking about here? “I lie about my age, so you can say whatever,” says Otis. “I used to go with 29 and holding, but now I just refuse to answer.”
