The Shanghai live music scene really started to pick up in 2005, and thankfully occasional Shanghaiist contributor Brad Ferguson was there to document it with his camera. He has chosen his 12 favorite concert photos and posted them over at his website dedicated to the Shanghai underground music scene, Shanghai Streets. You can also view the pics at his Flickr site. It’s an impressive collection, especially considering Brad only got started with concert photography a few months ago. To the right is a collage of the 361 live music photos Brad uploaded to Flickr last year. The amount of red in the image shows how much a boon to the scene Live Bar has been. Shanghaiist thinks the collage would make a nice cover for the 2006 concert photo calendar Brad should put out.
