Recapping Saturday's show

janine wilsonSaturday's taping of Baltimore Unsigned at The 8x10 in support of the Mammojam Music Festival was a smashing success, I'd say.

About 125 people showed up and listened to stirring sets by Billy Coulter and crew, Janine Wilson (pictured) and the Grilled Lincolns.

We also heard from breast cancer survivors, people who screen for breast cancer and friends and family of breast cancer victims.

It was an afternoon of touching stories and sweet, sweet rock 'n' roll.

Thanks again to everyone who came out for the show.

Mammojam is one of the most exciting things going in Baltimore right now. It's steadily expanded each year to include additional events, each of which catering to a unique and deserving audience, all while the economy that supports charities was floundering.

And Trombone Shorty at the 8x10 last year was the best show I saw in 2008.
