Steve's Top 5 for July 2013

Stephen Houldsworth attends more shows in Saint Louis than most, and his boundless taste takes him through a huge range of sound. Be it hardcore or noise, pop or rock, Stephen comes equipped with his point-and-shoot. The guerilla style of photography that results is a dry and honest take on the underground, independent scene in St. Louis. Once a month, Mr. Houldsworth shoots us an e-mail with his recent favorite photos.
