How far would you travel in one night for a band? What about 300-plus miles, more than six hours of driving and an infinite amount of snowflakes to navigate? You could repeat the band’s first album 12 times in that span, but that pace and intensity is part of the Tokyo Police Club appeal, making a road trip like that worthwhile.

Fans from all over New York experience Lady Gaga give one of her unforgettable "Monster Ball" tour performances.

A teenager casually took his seat before the Lady Gaga show, wearing a long-sleeve, button-up plaid shirt. He looked like any other high school boy.

A SU photojournalism senior shares the heartache, rage and raw emotions that have enveloped her past two years since her 18-year-old brother died.
