You win this time, Stephen McGill… But seriously: photos to show just how much fun a July Talk show can be, in one of the city’s nicest venues. Can we go back in time so I can go to this?

Fucked Up is always fun/dangerous to shoot. Neil Van did a great job capturing the sweatiness and insanity (not to mention the crowd surfing) in these photos from their NXNE showcase.

I’m fairly confident in saying I never want to see GWAR live (because of the whole “terrifying” thing), so I’m glad I can live vicariously through photos from Dale Benvenuto.

This photo is awesome because Howlin’ Pele Almqvist should be on every concert photographer’s bucket list.

Nice photos of a band that’s fun – but not always easy – to shoot.
