Editor’s Note: Our ears are still ringing from the sounds of Boston rock. On Friday night at T.T. The Bear’s Place, pile-driving animal-rock trio Zip-Tie Handcuffs blasted their way to glory, winning the 2015 Rock And Roll Rumble, fending off spirited sets from melodic rock powerhouse the Static Dynamic and dirty pop genre-benders Nemes. Photographer Derek Kouyoumjian was on hand to capture the sights for Vanyaland, as well as snap a few of guest band the Gravel Pit and the faces and scenes that made this year’s Rumble finale one hell of a party. Congrats to Zip-Tie Handcuffs, and to all the bands that played the Rumble this year. Photos below are by order of appearance.
