One year in concert photos

The walking sticks, an awesome poppy local band in DC.

Springtime Carnivore is Gretta Morgan's awesome new project. You may recognize her from The Hush Sound

Lady Lamb. This one is all about the writing.

Walk The Moon. Their last single was "Shut up and Dance with Me." That's an apt description.

Tei Shei. It's always great to see musicians like this in tiny intimate venues before they blow up. Which she will.

Priests. This one time we went to a punk rock show.

Surfer Blood. Saw them twice this year. Just stop here and go listen to "Take it Easy."

Body Language. Because why not?

Samantha Fish. Because I like mild hyperbole, I'm going to call her the New Queen of Blues. But seriously, she's awesome.

Rhye. Yes, they're playing in an old synagogue.

Courtney Barnett. Writing is great. So is the Australian accent.

Neko case would go here but Lincoln Theater forbids photography and is very aggressive about it.

Spoon!

One of my new favorites this year. They're called San Cisco.

Metric!

And The New Pornographers. Again.

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.

Of Monsters and Men.

The Fratellis. Their live show is captivating, and everyone in the audience knows all the words.

Mr. Buddy Guy. But you already knew that, right?

MS MR. A few years ago I saw them open for Two Door Cinema Club in Chicago, and haven't missed a show since.

Parov Stelar, an electric swing band playing in the US for the first time.

Natalie Prass. Again, one I'm happy to see early in her rise to world domination while I can still make it to the front.

The Arcs. You know the guy from The Black Keys? This is his other band.

Grand total: 28 shows.
