THE CONCERT WAS UNLIKE ANY Austin Brown (center) had attended---a dance party called Dayglow where blasts of fluorescent paint rained down on crowds in downtown Austin. Black light made them shine. "If you weren't dancing, you were just standing there covered in paint," Brown said. "That doesn't sound like fun." The hunt for novelty can go awry when teens try to top each new kick with another, more intense one. But it also helps them find their path. A concertgoer since high school, Brown now studies lighting design in college.
