Regular Dying Scene readers may well be aware, I think 2014 was a pretty great year for music. If you need a refresher, here’s my “Best of 2014” list. It wasn’t only a great year for new releases, however. I consider myself lucky to live in the greater Boston area and, thus, to have the ability to catch a lot of great live music. For myriad reasons, (many of which include having the opportunity to bring my wife and daughter to shows), 2014 may be one of my favorite concert-going years yet.
Here at Dying Scene, we’ve been trying to step up our live music coverage over the last couple of years. Because 2014 was full of so many great moments, I took the liberty of condensing a stellar year into a couple dozen shots that I was lucky enough to capture. Included are shots from three different Chuck Ragan shows (at three different venues), the Lagwagon/Swingin’ Utters tour, Dave Hause and Continental upstairs at the legendary Middle East nightclub (different shows), an intimate acoustic performance from Street Dogs at the Midway Cafe, two Frank Turner shows in the same day, two Against Me! shows (the first, a headlining show that also included Big Eyes, the latter an opening slot with The Gaslight Anthem), The Business and The Attack ripping up Church on a Wednesday night, and, of course, the Summer Nationals tour, featuring The Vandals, Bad Religion and The Offspring. A pretty great year indeed; check out our gallery here and stay tuned to see what 2015 has in store!
