Top 10 Concert Photos From 2011

 Boys Noize concert fans @ Music Box Hollywood (Justin Gill)

Top 10 Lists come out of the woodwork every year’s end, and I’m making no exception.  Here’s a list of some of my most memorable concert photos I’ve shot this year, either for aesthetic or iconic reasons.

I’m kicking off this list with the above photo, shot during Boys Noize set at The Music Box in Hollywood.  I’m including it here as it not only makes a good “lead” for a blog article about concert photos, but also because it showcases the raw energy emanating from the packed house that evening, and the fan wearing the Boys Noize shirt adds just a little bit of context :)


Valient Thorr @ Congress Theater

Valient Thorr live concert at Congress Theater Chicago

I was especially excited to catch Valient Thorr open for Motörhead at Congress Theater. These guys play what can be described as anywhere between thrash and punk for people who like nerdy metal. People like me.

And they didn’t disappoint with all their token power stances while busting out wailing guitar riffs, either. All in all, this band made for great photos to accompany a heavy rockin’ sound.
