Grimy Goods’ Best Concert Photos of 2011

Oops we did it again … the esteemed photographers of Grimy Goods shot an abundance of rad concerts and festivals in 2011 crossing various genres. From indie, hip hop, metal, electro and more — our photogs were out covering an average of three-to-five shows a week. Frankly, I don’t think any other Los Angeles indie music blog covered more ground than us. Whether they were world-renowned acts such as Metallica or lesser know up-and-comers such as Keep Shelly In Athens, Grimy Goods covered all sorts of musicians.

Check out some of our best live concert photos from 2011! A big thanks to all of our extremely talented and badass photographers. You guys are seriously the shit. ♥

    Solid. I went to about 50% of those shows. Wei Shi is extremely talented. All the Grimy Gods photogs are. But Ive always enjoyed her photos. They jump out at you.

    Grimy Goods is at the top all LA music blogs. We love what you do for the scene and for music fans that can’t afford to fuel their habit of going to concerts. Kudos to all the great photographers. Thanks for capturing a year of great music.
