Venue: The Danforth Music Hall

I love these photos just because of the way the lighting hits the band and how the photographer catches the mood of each picture. Each picture makes you feel closer to the band and makes everything more intimate.

Artist: Brand New
Venue: Bryce Jordan Center
City: State College, PA
Date: November 12
Photographer: Aaron Eck

There is something about these set of photos that make everything much more amazing, maybe it’s the fog or the way frontman Jesse Lacey commands the stage, but each photo tells a story, and that this is one night to remember. Aaron Eck did an amazing job on capturing this feeling.

Venue: Massey Hall 
City: Toronto 
Date: November 16
Photographer: Brendan Albert 

These photos highlight the intimacy between the band and the rest of the space. You feel like you are right there, singing every song. The black and white photography is simply breathtaking and so pleasing to the eye. Brendan captured the mood with each shot and he did that well.
