Like many of his teammates in Towson's 27-24 stunning loss to Maine in the Colonial Athletic Association opener for both teams Saturday night, Sam Hurwitz had an unsteady performance. The junior kicker converted all three of his extra-point attempts and easily nailed a 25-yard field goal in the first quarter. But he also had a 45-yard try that went outside the right upright in the fourth quarter that preceded the Black Bears' eventual game-winning touchdown. Hurwitz, who has connected on four of six field goals this season, converted a career-long 39-yard field goal in the Tigers' 31-20 victory over North Carolina Central on Sept.

This year, when A-list acts like Taylor Swift and Phish were penciling in their summer tours, they planned stops not in Baltimore, or even Washington, but at the woodsy Merriweather Post Pavilion. So did the organizers of the Virgin Mobile Free- Fest - one of the summer's hottest festivals. Sleepy, suburban Columbia is once again a go-to stop for live music. And it's quite the turnaround for the nearly 42-year-old amphitheater, which only five years ago was written off as obsolete. "This season - without Virgin Fest - is one of the best in memory," said Howard County Executive Ken Ulman.

Rock bands Weezer, Blink-182 and Franz Ferdinand and hip-hop group Public Enemy will headline a downsized Virgin Mobile Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion, organizers announced Tuesday. The festival, formerly a two-day affair held at the sprawling Pimlico Race Course, has been scaled back to one day, Aug. 30, and moved to the smaller Columbia amphitheater. But in a surprising change of course for the four-year-old event, this year's festival will be free, officials said. "In a time of economic challenges and daily sacrifices, we wanted to throw a fantastic party so people could let loose and have a great time - on us," Richard Branson, founder and president of Virgin Group, said in a statement.

When the Virgin Mobile Festival returns to Pimlico Race Course this summer, it will bring two full days of A-list artists from a wide range of musical genres. The lineup, which organizers are expected to announce today, includes legendary rockers Bob Dylan, Chuck Berry and Iggy Pop & The Stooges, as well as hip-hop stars Lil Wayne and Lupe Fiasco and indie rockers Cat Power and Wilco, along with roughly 30 other acts. "We didn't have a blockbuster headliner like we had with The Police last year," said promoter Seth Hurwitz, chairman of IMP, which booked the festival.

When Virgin Group founder and CEO Richard Branson announced this year's Virgin Festival lineup, he had high expectations. "This year, if we don't sell out the two days, I'd be very surprised," he said in March. Well, it didn't sell out the 120,000 two-day capacity. But about 74,000 people turned out for the second year of the festival, which featured The Police, Smashing Pumpkins, the Beastie Boys and nearly 40 other acts at Pimlico Race Course. Promoters and city officials say they are pleased.

Quinn Koches of Optimus Prime & the Autobots, plucked a brief solo on his bass guitar. And Alexandra Woodruff rocked on the drums with Here Comes Treble. In all, about 75 youngsters were working on their rock 'n' roll moves as part of the DayJams summer camp. "What these kids do here is real singing mixed evenly with guttural screaming," said Tobias Hurwitz, a guitarist who is the camp director.
