We assembled the best of the year in pictures from live events throughout Southern California last year as seen through the lenses of our staff photographers and reviewers.
From The Rolling Stones to Steven Adler to Peter Frampton, from Moby and KAABOO Fest to The Cure in Pasadena — with many others in between — here are some of the memorable moments captured in photos from last year.
