Monica McGivern's Top Ten Memorable Concert Photos in Broward and Palm Beach Counties

At every show or concert, there is a clicking camera that counts. It's that one that those onstage should take notice of over the scores of bopping iPhones in the crowd. Photographer and New Times freelancer Monica McGivern's lens is that special one. It captures life as it's happening and reveals something about that time and place that others couldn't.

The Michigan-bred, yoga-trained McGivern has found her home in Palm Beach Gardens. Though she's a regular face in the Broward and Palm Beach county cultural landscape, she more recently started shooting events in Miami, getting to know a whole new group of active scene-starters.

"Inspired by the light," she says, "literally flowing through the Imagesound office I had been hired by the business to photograph," and in order "to grow both professionally and personally," she launched a new project called Solo in Miami. McGivern sat down with various folks who, she states, "helped introduce an aspect of the 'Magic City's' magic" to her. Conceptualized shoots with 21 people and still counting have resulted in her first solo exhibition. In photographing these people, she's documented a growing arts community in Miami.

What follow are her pics for the top 10 most memorable mostly Miami-musician shows she's shot in Broward or Palm Beach counties. Enjoy the eye candy.
