Our Favorite Concert Photos of 2013

From the big shows to the small shows, we took a ton of photos this year. Here are our favorites.

Our Favorite Concert Photos of 2013

2013 was a great year for CHARGED.fm in terms of concert coverage. We had the opportunity to go to and cover an absolutely enormous number of bands that probably tops over 120 groups or so. From the big festivals like Lollapalooza and Newport Folk Festival to the smaller ones like 4 Knots Fest and NYC PopFest and everything in between, we got to witness more great moments than we could count.

Thankfully, our cameras were at the ready for many of these moments, and my favorite concert moment of 2013 had to be the one I captured about: Matt Berninger of The National standing amid the packed crowd at Lollapalooza last August. This was my first time seeing The National perform. They were everything I could have hoped for and more, and that was before Berninger started using all of the stage. He wandered over to the speakers, climbed over obstacles, all while performing with that gravelly voice of his. Finally, during their closer "Terrible Love," he made his way through the barriers and into the crowd where he continued the song while crawling among the mass of people. Then he stood up as if he had conquered the world, which is almost exactly what it looked like. It was the perfect conclusions to an epic set, and I was so happy I was able to capture it.

Check out the rest of our favorite photos from this year in concerts below, and as always, we'll try to do even better next year. And a slight warning: there are A LOT of photos here.
