Mysteriously, Hip Hop Wes found himself with backstage - AND ONSTAGE - access at this year's Rock the Bells festival in NYC (Saturday July 28, 2007). Here are some of the photos he took....

Ends up he didn't have a great view for Rage - so no pics of them, but there are a few more shots of the crowd and the artists you see above - @ his Flickr. More Rock the Bells in this week's Hip Hop post too.
