Grimy Goods’ Best Concert Photography of 2012 – Part One

A part of loving and understanding the greatness of music is not just pigeonholing yourself into one genre, but discovering and appreciating the creativity and craft of various musical styles. The photographers at Grimy Goods cover everything; from world music, electro and blues — to punk, garage, hip-hop and so much more — the Grimy Goods photographers have covered close to 200 shows in 2012. I can’t tell you how proud and thankful I am to have such a dedicated and brilliant team of photographers. Some of them have been with Grimy Goods since its early years and watching them perfect their skills behind a lens has been so moving and inspirational. Whether it’s fast and chaotic, or slow and sensual — music unites us all and is truly an unforgettable experience when you see a band/musician bring their sounds to life on stage.

Below are the first half of Grimy Goods Best Concert Photography of 2012. The shows are ordered from present to the past and we kick off with December 2012. Stay tuned for Part Two of Grimy Goods Best Concert Photography of 2012.
