Top 12 from Stephen and Graham

Stephen Houldsworth and Graham Matthews take to the city streets almost daily, bringing enthusiasm to every pocket of St. Louis culture. The duo documents music through candid photo and video, bringing modest equipment to painstakingly capture the times. Both Stephen and Graham have made performing rewarding for many artists through their constant support and contributions.

Houldsworth carries a tiny point-and-shoot which allows him to venture through beer soaked mosh pits and crowded basements with little prejudice. We asked Stephen for his top twelve caps of 2012, and he thankfully obliged. Here goes:

Awakening. Melanympha Meatbeat at mushmaus. (12/15/12)

Dali Rama. Prince Rama at Art Dimensions. (3/21/12)

Dance Dance Dance. Googolplexia with MSIF at RFT Music Showcase. (6/2/12)
