Concert Rapture

Can you guess at which fey indy rock icon's concert this was taken?

He's a seminal favorite of mine, going back to my 16th birthday when I was given my first LP of his former band.

That album made me truly love guitar, and for the first time I felt that lyrics had been written about the honest particulars of my life.

I think this is one of the most beautiful and intimate photos I've ever seen of the communal mob bliss and adulation that descends on a crowd during a particularly memorable rock concert.

Imagine looking out from the stage and seeing those expressions on the faces of the people there to see you perform? What would that do to your head?
