This is it, the final installment of our Review in Photography: Best of 2013, and of course we saved the best for last. These are some my favorite photos of the year and some of my favorite concert moments ever. It’s been a remarkable year for live music.

Artists I never thought I would see live have reunited and have proved to be better than ever. Some of the up-and-coming acts I’ve seen this year have quickly become some of my favorites, and have released some brilliant albums this year.

Most importantly in my hometown of Chicago, the DIY music scene is experiencing a renaissance. With new independent labels popping up all the time and putting out brilliant local music, Chicago is truly an amazing place to be a musician and a music lover. I’ll spare you the rest of my musings on this years music scene and save that for another time, here’s the stuff you came here for:
