These includes photos I took in March at South By Southwest in Austin and at four big festivals this summer in Chicago: Intonation, Pitchfork, Lollapalooza and the Touch & Go/Hideout Block Party. And there are lots of photos from Chicago’s concert venues, including Schubas, the Hideout, the Empty Bottle, Metro, the Double Door and others. It’s been a blast taking all of these photos this year. I bought a Canon Digital Rebel XT in Feburary, and since then, I’ve shot more than 20,000 photos!

As a bonus, here’s a slideshow of the Go! Team’s Ninja dancing during the band’s concert this summer at Lollapalooza.
