25 Favorite Photos From Viva PHX
Up On the Sun's resident photographers were plenty busy during Viva PHX this past weekend, as were their camera. While everyone else in attendance at the downtown Phoenix music festival was busy witnessing the performances of the 70 or so bands and artists, our shutterbug staff -- including Jim Louvau, Melissa Fossum, Jeff Moses, Jessica Obert, and Benjamin Leatherman - were watching the action through their respective viewfinders and snapping away.

Much of what they shot was awash with color, encapsulated the energy of a particular artist, or simply captured a moment in time. Here are 25 of our favorite Viva PHX photographs that they produced.
Benjamin Leatherman John Schmersal of Vertical Scratchers at Hard Rock Cafe. Jeff Moses The Bad Cactus Brass Band outside of Hotel San Carlos. Melissa Fossum Rob Crow of Pinback. Melissa Fossum Jesse Rutherford of The Neightbourhood at the Central Avenue Stage.
