The 20 Best Concert Photos of 2011

The number of good shows and exciting, inspiring, heartbreaking moments in the Dallas music scene this year were, to put it SO very mildly...numerous. It probably can go with out saying. Except we're going to say it. We're going to talk about it. Hard. Dude, we're, like, already talking about it so hard.

Anyway, a few weeks ago we combed through the many, many good slide shows of the year in music, including Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, Britney Spears, Kid Rock, Willie Nelson and sweet fancy Moses, so much more. We narrowed it down to 50, and now, for this fancy blog we run, we're picking our favorite 20 shots. Below, in no particular order: the top 20 shots of 2011.
