Chris Boarts Larson Photo Column—What Happens Next?
What Happens Next? was a hardcore band from the Bay Area know for their energetic antics on stage that would regularly find all members in the air at once. Craig and Robert barely ever kept their feet on the ground, Devon was air-bound non-stop, and Max is one of the few drummers who I’ve ever known to fly in the air mid beat! What Happens Next? was a breed of their own that travelled the world and made it part of their mission to go to the far corners of the earth!
Looking at photos of them makes me not just miss them as a band and as individuals—but it also makes me miss the no-holds-barred, energetic hardcore posi-fun shows! This photo captures the insanity pretty accurately with what—I assume—was a full beer dousing both me and my camera. I don’t miss the beer in my camera but I do long for the hardcore punk explosion!
