Editor’s Note: This year, we asked our bloggers to name their Top 10 shows of 2019 or choose their Top 10 photos of the year. We will run them over the course of mid-December as our Best of the Year posts.
Choosing my favorite photos is always a difficult task. I narrowed it down to shows I shot specifically for Parklife for this blog post.

Thrash metal overlords GWAR sieged Rams Head Live as the command center for the band’s Use Your Collusion Tour recently. Katherine Gaines got pictures of all of the guts and glory you would expect from a heavy metal “alien invasion.”

Gwar stormed 9:30 Club recently, touring in support of their latest album, The Blood of Gods. Ben Eisendrath braved the torrent of thrash metal madness to capture some pictures of the mayhem!

This year has been a music filled year for me. I have managed to make it to over 80 shows in 2018 and some of these shows I had the pleasure of reviewing for Parklife DC. As I wrap up my concert calendar for this year, I started reflecting on my most memorable shows for 2018. I focused on shows that I felt were excited to photograph or the performance left an impression on me. In most cases, the shows in my Top 10 were the first time seeing the band perform and consequently, winning me over as a new fan. Listed in chronological order, my Top 10 will take you through 2018 and hopefully remind you of some great musical memories as well!

GWAR rocked the Baltimore Soundstage this past Friday as devoted fans crowded the front of the stage to take part in the theatrics! It was definitely a fun way to spend a Friday evening! Despite the passing of lead singer and front man, Dave Brockie in 2014, GWAR has carried on. This creative band continues to gather a devote fan base who come to their shows for not only the music, but to enjoy the show… the messy show!
