Here at BrooklynVegan we are proud to regularly feature the work of lots of talented contributing photographers. These hard-working folks cover shows, festivals, parades, and other events in NY, Austin, Chicago, throughout the rest of the country, and in Europe, too. As we recap our favorite albums, overlooked albums, new bands, metal, emo, and punk of 2016, we also wanted to look back on our most memorable visual moments of the year. Check out the gallery above for some of the best photos we've posted this year, like the late, great Sharon Jones (RIP), Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar, St. Vincent, Tame Impala, Gwar, Mitski, Joyce Manor, Ty Segall, Joanna Newsom, Mac DeMarco, PJ Harvey, Gorilla Biscuits, The Strokes, and scenes from Afropunk Fesival, the NYC Pride March, Primavera Sound, and more.
