The 20 Best Dallas Concert Photos of the Year (So Far, Anyway)

Here we are at the midway point of the year, or something. The heat's at blow-torch temperatures, The Rapture's well on the way (not the 2012 one), and DOMA's gonna rear it's wicked head soon.

In honor of this half-year-ish thing, we'd like to share with you our favorite concert shots of 2011 so far. Between Slash's smoldering looks and New Kids on the Block in the shadows of their diminishing fame, it was a damn tough decision to pick from the archives of our crackpot/genius photographers.

Let's get to it, in no particular rank or order mind you (they're all too damn good):
