As 2014 comes to a close, I have been reviewing my year in concert photography. It was a great year for music (you can check out my top 10 album list here), which also resulted in a great year for touring. I am lucky to live in Los Angeles, where you can catch live music every night of the week. My fiancé and I try to go to as many shows as possible, including both Punk Rock Bowling in Vegas and Riot Fest in Chicago.
I shot my first show in January and wrapped up my last gallery this past week. Throughout the year, I was able to photograph Off With Their Heads with The Menzingers, MxPx, The Lawrence Arms and Nothington, Propagandhi, The Flatliners, and War On Women, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes with Bad Cop/Bad Cop (a band I shot multiple times over the year), The Bombpops (another band I shot multiple times), Good Riddance with Direct Hit!, Joyce Manor, The Vandals’ Fourth of July eve show AND their Christmas Formal, and the Cyber Tracks Christmas Show (featuring the Implants, Counterpunch, and Ten Foot Pole), just to name a few. The ultimate highlight of my year was shooting the Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival in Las Vegas, which included the Descendents, NOFX, Against Me!, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, Masked Intruder, The Generators, Cerebral Ballzy, Devil’s Brigade, Face To Face, Good Riddance, and OFF!.
Narrowing down all of those shots proved to be a difficult task, but you can check out my gallery below. Hopefully these photos make you smile and realize what an awesome year it has been. See you in 2015!
