Guest List: Nicole Kibert (elawgrrl) - 2013 Favorites

Nicole Kibert is a freelance photographer based in Atlanta, GA (formerly of Tampa, FL) working under the moniker of elawgrrl. Nicole specializes in live music photography. She's been a regular contributor to publications such as Suburban Apologist and Creative Loafing and has made special contributions to a variety of high profile papers, websites, and zines.  Her images have also appeared in gallerys and as album artwork. She's clearly uninspired and not at all focused on the music, (wink, sigh) given she's also been a college radio music director, writer/reviewer, and show promoter.

In all candor I went ahead and kind of stole from Nicole's bio to introduce her.  Many of you probably are well acquainted with her amazing photography, if not with her personally.  You can and should view her work on her site http://elawgrrl.com/

It probably doesn't surprise you that Nicole likes a lot of great bands, their albums and their shows, most of which we are fortunate enough to get to see through her eyes via her art.

Here are her favorite albums from 2013. Thanks Nicole!
