Virgin Mobile Festival: The Morning-After Roundup
"Crushcrushcrush!!!" (Sarah L. Voisin/TWP)
Malitz and I went to Baltimore last weekend, and all you got was this lousy story. (Well that and all these blog posts.)
Some more critical reportage from the front lines...
The Baltimore Sun's Rashod D. Ollison and Sam Sessa (correctly) call it for Kanye after going retro-crazy on Day 1.
Sessa also ponders the festival's booking philosophy - and argues that there should be a small stage for Baltimore bands. (Producer Fritz wondered yesterday why there wasn't a K-Swift memorial.)
USA Today offers a charticle that names Jack Johnson as one of the musical highlights. Huh.
Melissa Ruggieri of the Richmond Times-Dispatch wasn't down with Lil Wayne's "sophomoric ramblings" - but she just lurved the Silver Beats and Sharon Jones.
Sonny Bunch of the Washington Times says Bloc Party "killed."
And finally, one of the photo editors at Eparsa is drooling over Duffy's red dress.
