Unfortunately in Baltimore, one of the requirements for this category is longevity--club nights in Baltimore fade and fail with depressing regularity. We were also looking for nights that are consistent--every week, month, etc., something we can count on. (Sorry, Tax Lo.) It's amazing how this limits the pool. But, even if we opened it wide, Deep Sugar would still take this one home. It is one thing to impress Baltimore with touring talent, but it's another to do it with Baltimore talent. For the past four years, house diva Ultra Naté and her more-eclectic-than-you'd-think crew of native DJs has been holding down Fridays late night at 1722, finally outgrowing it this summer and moving down south to the cavernous Paradox. And, in a time when house music, a staple of our city's music culture, seems to be always in a state of wane, to have Deep Sugar not only keeping it alive, but growing, is a very big deal.
