Favorite live music photos of 2017

As December winds down, I'm done shooting concerts in 2017.  Throughout the year, I've seen a number of acts live in both rooms large and small. Now I'm sharing my favorite images taken between January and December. Over the course of the year, I captured photos like these for Impose Magazine, Brooklyn Vegan, The Photo Ladies, PopGun Presents, and for my own website

For more of my favorite photos taken in 2017, portraits are available in this gallery.
