The second half of this year was a series of intimate shows in tiny venues and I loved it. Here are some of the best nights I was lucky enough to immortalize.
Even though I only attended around 30 shows during the first half of 2017, most of them were very intense and fun. It wasn't easy, but here's a list of the 5 best gigs + photos to prove it.
1. The Bronx + Against Me! @ La Maroquinerie, Paris - June 1st
2. Newmoon + PUP @ L'Espace B, Paris - January 29th
3. Parkway Drive @ Groezrock Festival - April 30th
4. Union Jack + Doe + Jeff Rosenstock @ Le Klub, Paris - May 17th
5. Birds In Row + Angel Du$t + Touché Amoré @ La Maroquinerie, Paris - February 13th
2015 has not been the easiest year, especially for us live music fans, but it has brought me awesome concert memories and so many great opportunities. It has been the year of my first Groezrock, the year of my first tour, I got the chance to travel abroad (even stateside!) for shows and to shoot some big headliners/some of my favourite bands. I was not easy to come down to only 10 shots because of how emotional this year has been, but I think I finally managed to do it.

Last week, I headed out on my first tour with Above The North. It was challenging but also so rewarding, and I couldn't have asked for a better band for this first tour. They would keep blowing my mind every night whether it was in front of 5 persons or a packed room, in a 350-cap venue or a bar's basement. Keep Above The North's name in mind because you're far from done hearing about them.
You can find a full gallery of their week on the road below.
