On March 2nd, 2016 a Baltimore institution burned. The Book Thing, a free book store serving the city for more than 15 years, suffered a massive fire that destroyed more than 200,000 books and the roof of the building. Russell has started to rebuild and WLOY is going to help. After our initial donation of $2,000, we let him know we wanted to do more. Working with the great people at Friends Records and Peabody Heights Brewing Company, we have put together an amazing festival to raise more money! An incredible collection of local bands large and small have jumped in to help, food vendors signed on, and we are ready to blow everyone away! Join us Saturday May 28 from noon-8pm while we fill 2 stages with bands, and you with food and beverage, all to help The Book Thing!
