Saturday: Rock Baby Rock It Was Hot, Hot, Hot

Rock Baby Rock It 12 Feat. The Octanes, Los Skarnales, Jesse Dayton Continental Club July 21, 2012

See the pin-ups and hot rods of Rock Baby Rock It in our slideshow.

Hot was the operative word at Saturday's Rock Baby Rock It hot-rod show/musical extravaganza. With temperatures in the high 90s, the parking lot filled with hot-rods was like a Lawrence of Arabia death march in the afternoon heat.

So hot, we thought the makeup might literally melt off all the ladies who had dolled up for the pin-up contest to be held later in the evening. Cutesy umbrellas were everywhere.
