Joey Maloney at SXSW and in the paper

Joey Maloney has been one of my favorite photographers of rock since even before he joined LAist.

i’d see his beautiful LA rock scene pix on Flickr back in the day and i was all i wonder if hed shoot pics for us for free

yeah right.

but then one day i got the courage to ask and he was crazy enough to say yes and it was a match made in heaven

so imagine my surprise when this morning i see his work at my favorite rock festival

on the pages of my local paper.

at sxsw

this is something i sure could get used to!

Great job Joey!!
