Last Thursday, Tom Malenski, a well-loved and long time fixture in the Baltimore punk scene, was senselessly murdered after a show in the city.
Malenski, an employee of the bar in the 2500 block of N. Howard St., was attending a concert on his night off when he helped a co-worker break up a fight and removed a patron, according to police and the bar’s owner. As he led the patron from the bar, Malenski was attacked by Heath, police said. According to charging documents, Malenski was stabbed in the neck. The other victim, a 33-year-old bar employee, suffered a laceration to his face.
Police said Malenski died at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center at 2:28 a.m. Friday.
Tom was a incredibly warm and welcoming face in what can be a very cold city, and his death is a huge loss to the community. Tom’s family is collecting donations for medical and funeral expenses. Every little bit helps.
Please donate if you can.
Not that I have seen.
