Feeling the Heat During V Fest Baltimore

Whew! It was over 100 degrees on Saturday, August 4, the first day of the Virgin Festival's return for its sophomore two-day run at Pimlico Race Course.

Two photographers and I had a fun time soaking in (pun intended) all the fest's attractions and stellar musicians: Amy Winehouse, Bad Brains, Modest Mouse, Cheap Trick, Ben Harper, Incubus, Wu-Tang Clan, The Beastie Boys and thirty-five more. Oh, yeah, The Police and Smashing Pumpkins, too. Here is a link to my review of the UK-based event for GLIDE magazine (www.glidemagazine.com).
