Next Mosh’s 100 best concert shots of 2018

It was quite a huge year for local rock and metal concert goers, with tours both big and small, a few fests, and plenty of exclusive one-off shows making their way to the Tri-state area in 2018.

We wanted to take a moment to celebrate some of our best live photos snapped this year, with extensive gig coverage made possible courtesy of Alex Basovskiy, CRIOS, Dhruv Kumar, Dominick Bianco, Dylan Lappin, Gabriela Jeronimo, Haley Preininger, Jonathan Arevalo, Lina Glasir, Mathieu Bredeau, Matteo Palermo, Rodrigo Fredes, Wayne Herrschaft, and myself.

Needless to say, huge thanks to the bands, record labels, publicists, venues, and promoters for their kind hospitality year after year.

Here are some (100 to be exact) of our favorite concert shots of 2018 in chronological order…
