What. A. Year!

This has been a great year for the P&W staff – we covered shows all around the country including California, Tennessee, Boston and Virginia. We covered some of the biggest names in music like Radiohead, Twenty One Pilots, Pearl Jam, Maxwell, Temple Of The Dog, SIA, Sufjan Stevens and many more. We also attended more festivals than ever like Bonnaroo, Lockn, Outside lands, Newport and the newest kid in the NYC fest scene, The Meadows as well as the usual suspects like Gov Ball and Northside.

The following photos are our favorite images of the year. Each contributor was asked to send in their favorites, so enjoy!


Alx Bear – This was Alx’s first year with P&W and she didn’t mess around. Covering shows on both coasts, she showed tremendous skill in getting the shot when it mattered.
