Windjammer Festival @ Pier 6 Pavilion - 8/29/15

On a hot late-summer afternoon on Saturday, a group of Baltimore bands of various genres, both veterans of the scene and relative newcomers, came together at Pier Six Pavilion. Organized to raise money for the Living Classroom Foundation’s Believe in Music program, which supports music education in Baltimore, the Windjammer Festival served as not only a celebration of the city but also as a chance for the musicians to give back to the community and to help enable the next generation to follow after them. The sold-to-capacity venue cheered as Dan Deacon spoke sincerely and eloquently in the middle of his set to the importance of being able to learn music as a means of self-expression, and it was clear throughout the day that the other performers on the bill shared his sentiments.
