Janelle Monae (By: Paige K. Parsons)

Editor's note: Paige K. Parsons is easily one of the best photographers in the Bay, period. Every year she never ceases to amaze us with the shots she gets, always capturing some of the greatest shots from any live shows. She photographs everything, from some of the smallest local bands beginning their rise to the headliners of the major music festivals. And like every year, her photos were amazing in 2018. We're happy to share with you what she considers some of her best from this year, and we're certain 2019 will bring plenty more great shots.
