My thoughts on Virgin Mobile Festival
I'm really looking forward to covering this fall's Virgin Mobile Festival.
Promoter Seth Hurwitz, who booked the bands for the two-day extravaganza at Pimlico, took a different approach with the lineup this year.
He's betting that two full days of engaging acts like Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, KT Tunstall (pictured) and Gogol Bordello will bring more people than one or two big headliners.
I think it's a good strategy.
Pimlico holds 60,000 people, give or take.
Last year, the Police -- one of the hottest touring acts out there -- couldn't fill the place.
All of these smaller (but still formidable) bands just might.
