Brandon Flowers' Mustache, Awesome Pastries, and Lounging With The Freaks.

Baltimore was a blast and the Virgin Festival was a ball. Lots of fun stuff to do, reasonable lines for food and drinks, fantastic sound system, and I met tons of really cool folks.

Highlights of the day for me included a guy in a Skeletor costume doing a song & dance routine to Tom Jones' "Delilah" in the "Freak Lounge", spending some time with Wolfmother and Scissor Sisters for work (Ana Matronic couldn't be sweeter...), a stage filled with little kids dancing and rocking-out as VHS Or Beta DJ'd, and finding out our food discount tickets were being accepted for free beer instead.

Oh yeah, the bands all for the most part sounded amazing.

The Who were scary looking but sounded great.

Brandon Flowers' mustache looks ridiculous.

I am SO over Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.

Vaccaro's Italian Pastry Shop in Baltimore's Little Italy rules.

Wolfmother is one of the fiercest live bands in the world.
