Very nice Amanda. And having met you at shows, I appreciate that you get these great shots without being a total entitled ass like some photogs from other publications I have unfortunately also met at shows.

The good thing about a BV photographer is that you never really know they are there. Amanda (and Chris) are true pros and never get in the way of a civilian's experience of a show. Good stuff Amanda! Look forward to more in 2014!

great pics, terrible bands (empire of the sun, gems)

Pics are fairly pedestrian- glorified point and shoot snapshots really. Karen O has some artistic merit, the rest not so much.

6:08 just jizzed in his pants.

I agree. Nothing special about these photos. Anyone with a decent camera could have taken them.

nothing special about these comments. anyone with a decent keyboard could have written them.

Ha! So anyone could take these pictures with a decent camera, in the same way that anyone could play guitar like Richard Thompson with a decent guitar. Yeahno.

Also, I'm glad Amanda, Dominick, Chris, Dana et. al. are there to take pictures so that I can just enjoy the experience of the show.

I have noticed that there is one guy, the same guy, that posts the same "nothing special" posts every time a thread featuring one of the photographers is made. Dude, that troll is mad stale. Give that shit up and find a new troll (maybe try a little humor next time?)
