It is incredible to be at a live rock concert and to feel the energy of the musicians and the crowd. The mood makes a massive shift from the preconcert chatter, to the post show adrenaline and exhaustion. The people leading this energy-high are the music makers themselves rocking out on stage. This comparative portrait series by Brandon Andersen documents rockers from the Vans Warped Tour before and after their shows.
It is funny to see the fairly put together pre-show look of the musicians with combed hair, a relaxed gaze and dry skin. The post-concert images document the intensity of the previous couple of hours with a sense of dishevelment and exhaustion.
