Passenger and 403s

I am setting up Passenger on my dev box and I am running into an issue
getting the ServerName on a vHost to work. The code below allows
localhost to work as planned. However when I try to pull up the app
using the ServerName "livewiredmusic.local" I always get a 403.

Also, I installed the Passenger Pref Pane just to see if that would
work, but I get the same 403 using the code it generates. FYI I
followed Ryan Bates screencast...

I gave the app's public dir 777 at one point as well and still got the
403.

This is my httpd.conf:

NameVirtualHost *:80
<VirtualHost *:80>
   ServerName livewiredmusic.local
   DocumentRoot /Users/elliott/Documents/***/WebSites/
LiveWiredMusic.org/LiveWiredMusic/public
   <Directory "/Users/elliott/Documents/***/WebSites/
LiveWiredMusic.org/LiveWiredMusic/public">
       Order allow,deny
       Allow from all
   </Directory>
</VirtualHost>

Then in /etc/hosts I added:
127.0.0.1 livewiredmusic.local

Thanks for the help!

Any insight on this guys?

So... The fix was this.

I know very little about networking,DNS and IP protocol variants, for
whatever reason setting my server name to bind to 127.0.0.1 in /etc/
hosts was not working.

Instead either
fe80::1%lo0 livewiredmusic.local
::1 livewiredmusic.local

worked fine.
