The Best Live Photos Of 2014

The past 12 months have been a total trip and while we could share our stories and a few super embarrassing moments, we’d be better off by just saying “we get around”. Take that as you will, but it really is the perfect description for a year that provoked us to hit the open road – leaving Toronto behind for the music scenes in New York, Detroit, Chicago, Nashville, Austin, Portland, and Los Angeles. It’s nothing compared to what we have planned for the new year, but it did allow our team of photographers to snap stills of more than 300 artists. They covered everyone from Kings Of Leon to Montreal’s TOPS and did so in environments such as theatres, parks, basements, and even bookstores. With that, we present to you The Best Live Photos Of 2014.

For more visuals, keep tabs on Joel Pilotte, Jeff Filman, Sean Wilkin, Julia Marcello, Josh MahoneyDylan JohnsonJen Schenkel, and Amanda Fotes.
