Best Concert Crowd Photos of 2013

Who says L.A. crowds suck? Well actually, it’s kind of true. Los Angeles is known for some of the weakest crowds. People are just too cool these days to dance, jump and even clap for the bands they adore — but it’s a different story at the majority of the shows Grimy Goods cover. Yes, we have an affinity towards punk, garage and rock ‘n’ blues — and anything else that makes your body shake. Take a look below at our best concert crowd photos of 2013.

Thanks to our bold team of photographers for getting up in the thick of it. You don’t even know how many kicks in the head and bruises these guys endure all for capturing that live show moment that brought you the most happiness. Rock on.
