“The music is made first, and the interviews or photos to keep it alive come later as a necessary evil, I suppose.” -Jack White

Event: The Eric Andre Show at FYF 2012
Photographer: Cap Blackard
What Cap Says: “The Octomom didn’t know what hit her. Another unsuspecting pseudo-celebrity caught in the wake of Eric Andre’s surreal physical comedy. If you haven’t seen The Eric Andre Show on [adult swim], you need to take care of that.”

Event: Pearl Jam at Made In America 2012
Photographer: Michael Zonenashvili
What Michael Says: “As I said, I’m not the biggest Pearl Jam fan, but standing near Eddie Vedder was awesome in itself. And for photography? Even the rain couldn’t mess up his hair.”

Event: Odd Future at Santa Cruz’s the Catalyst
Photographer: Ted Maider
What Ted Says: “It’s amazing to see Tyler, the Creator this calm. Normally, he’s a swag-spaz on stage, yet here he is playing it totally cool, rocking that Supreme hat (Say “Hi” to Lil’ Jav Nunez for me).”

cos byrne vincent 25 Top Photos of the Month (September)

Event: St. Vincent and David Byrne at the Chicago Theater
Photographer: Heather Kaplan
What Heather Says: ”An amazing performance, made even better by the fact that David Byrne encouraged the audience to take photos and videos of the show. As I was sitting in the third row, this made my assignment very easy!”

peter gabriel united center roffman 2012 39 Top Photos of the Month (September)

Event: Peter Gabriel at Chicago’s United Center
Photographer: Michael Roffman
What Michael Says: “I was surrounded by a bunch of professionals, and they all had these Imperial-styled lenses. My camera looks like Peter Parker’s on a bad day, though this made maneuvering easy. This shot happened because I kept tracing Gabriel back and forth, snapping like wild. He looks like Terry O’Quinn IRL.”

swans jeremy larson 2012 6 Top Photos of the Month (September)

Event: Swans at Milwaukee’s Shank Hall
Photographer: Jeremy D. Larson
What Jeremy Says: “Swans played in a tiny venue, it looked like a small-town VFW club. Gira got down on his knees and just clawed at his guitar, mouth open. I very much wish I didn’t have the urge to take a picture of him and just got to watch him transcend.”

ty segall hi res e1348943997516 Top Photos of the Month (September)

Event: Ty Segall at Chicago’s Logan Square Auditorium
Photographer: Jeremy D. Larson
What Jeremy Says: “Ugh — I was in the middle of a mosh pit for most of this show and a big beer spilled all over my lens. It was a great show, but I got a large bruise on my thigh and a sticky 28mm now, so enjoy this photo x 10.”
