2008: Local Music’s Year In Pictures

by

zacfireThe new multi-million-dollar light ball is hoisted over Times Square and ready to drop. Dick Clark has been pulled out of mothballs, Ryan Seacrest has been pulled out of his NAMBLA meeting American Idol and Carson Daly has been pulled out of the DBAG3000 Carson Daly Generator. The fireworks are primed in Jordan Valley Park and local shows are gearing up everywhere to rock out one last time. Yes, everyone, it’s time to welcome in 2009… but not before we look back at 2008. We made a point at TheFourFour.com to get around to as many shows as we could with camera(s) in tow to capture Springfield Music’s best in action, and we were lucky enough to have some of you follow our lead by taking your own shots and posting them to our public Flickr page. What follows after the link is, in our opinion, a collection of some of the best and most interesting photos of the year. Take a look and see what you think. If you like what you see, check out the Four Four Flickr page and the Four Four public Flickr group for a whole lot more.
