Virgin Mobile FreeFest 2011 hits and misses [Pictures]
After a week of stormy weather and a forecast that put the chance of rain on Saturday at 30 percent, Virgin Mobile FreeFest went off mainly without a hitch. The free show featured performances by rock band The Black Keys, Canadian DJ Deamau5, the R&B singer Cee-Lo Green, the art-rock band TV on the Radio and singer-songwriter Patti Smith -- on three stages. Here's our guide to the hits and misses of this year's FreeFest.

Miss: Mud( Josh Sisk, Baltimore Sun / September 10, 2011 )
It wasn't Glastonbury, but there was plenty of mud. Don't blame organizers -- blame this apocalyptic weather we've been having. It grew especially grimy in the dance forest, and by the West stage, around the Ferris wheel, which was soggy by 11 a.m. The thousands of Deadmau5 fans that stood waiting for their hero did not help. Still, it could have been worse.
