DS Exclusive: 2014 – A Year in Concert Pictures (milhouse)

2015 is nearly upon us, and as visions of upcoming concerts dance through my mind, I reflect on the year that has passed. I think about the concerts I was able to attend, and those that slipped through the cracks. The new friends made, the old friends re-acquainted, the massive heaps of beer, bruises and cuts, hangovers, lost voices, and of course the photos – without which many memories may have gone by the gutter. My photos are like my children, and having to choose favorites just seems so unfair, but there are clearly some standouts.

The year’s first show featured a Dying Scene favorite, Chuck Ragan, with some other incredible moments over the year including joining Bum City Saints for a studio session in February, the annual trip to Las Vegas for Punk Rock Bowling in May, Pirates Press‘ 10th Anniversary shows in October, interviewing Blood or Whiskey in November, and more that I’m sure I’m leaving out. To my surprise and delight, I was able to see one of my all-time favorite bands, Cock Sparrer, four times this year, as well as having the opportunity to present Colin with a framed concert print of himself. Outstanding! Swingin’ Utters, La Plebe, Lagwagon, and others were among many bands whom I would get to see multiple times over the course of 2014.

I have narrowed down my collection to 30 of my favorite shots that I took during 2014, and some of the winners include Nihilist Cunt, Bishops Green, Anti-Nowhere League, Cock Sparrer (of course), Bum City Saints, Street Dogs, Laura Jane Grace, The Adicts, Angelic Upstarts, Total Chaos, and more. Have a look at a year in concert pictures below. Above shot not included in the 30 is PPR owner Skippy stage-diving at an after-party Cock Sparrer show – epic.

Big thanks to Skippy of PPR, Ian of Chapter Eleven, Jay from DS, Alberto from La Plebe, and everyone else who helped make this year amazing!!

The group is gearing up to release a new 10″ that is set to be released early 2015, and has published a new track available to stream. It’s entitled “Blå Linjen Blues” (Blue Line Blues) and you can check it out below.

DS Photo Gallery: Cock Sparrer at Pirates Press Records’ 10th Anniversary ‘Rock The Ship’ Party

The time had arrived and the rain had subsided just in time for Cock Sparrer to take the stage at Pirates Press‘ 10th Anniversary ‘Rock The Ship’ party. The English quintet is one of my all-time favorite bands and in addition to their longevity, influence, and musicality, the mates are a true stand-up bunch of guys. If memory serves correctly, the set began with the iconic sirens of ‘Riot Squad’. Classics like ‘Argy Bargy’, ‘Watch Your Back’, ‘I Got Your Number’, ‘England Belongs to Me’, and many more would be featured, and I knew it was going to be an amazing set. Cock Sparrer hasn’t released new material in quite some time, but that doesn’t stop anyone from getting giddy as a little schoolgirl in preparation to see them.

One thing that is clearly evident is that the guys are having the time of their lives on stage. Smiles abound as Darryl and Mick and Steve all dance and gallop around while pausing for cameras and even touching on some choreographed dance moves. It was really a treat to see, and Cock Sparrer shows no signs of slowing down. After my three songs in the photo pit, I chose to live out one of my dreams and go side stage with the streetpunk legends. Of course the set rounded out with the obligatory ‘We’re Comin’ Back’, which they always end their set with, and they always stay true to their promise.

The night wasn’t over though, as after a little chat and liquid rejuvenation we were off to Bottom of The Hill for the after-party show with Downtown Struts, Workin’ Stiffs, and a *Special Guest*.

Check out all the shots from Cock Sparrer’s set at ‘Rock The Ship’ below.

Thanks again to all the Pirates Press crew for everything you do!
