Is the underground rave scene dead?
    #6191120 - 10/20/06 03:41 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

I often think back to my high school days during 98'-00' and reminisce about all of the raves I went to. I lived outside of Detroit so there was quite a scene here at that time. Getting a stack of
fliers at every rave, with nothing more than a phone number to call on the night of the party. Intentionally obscure directions to an isolated empty warehouse in the industrial sprawl of Detroit,
yet somehow always full of people. My first two acid trips were a result of frequenting raves.

Although I didn't really appreciate them at the time, I realize now how unique the experience and atmosphere was at these parties(spare the random asshole you might run into). Is there anything left
of this once thriving culture, or has the flame burned out?

Yes.

That scene is kinda dead I find..... A lot of parties are just being held at big venues lately... at least here in Toronto.
Back in 95 we used to line up outside cityhall and take GETTO ass school busses to a party in an old warehouse at an undesclosed location.... dirty dirty old schools vibes.... i miss that :-(

I went to a Detroit trance / DnB party in 96 at an old warehouse under the ambassador bridge... I think it was called 'Love' ... awesome vibe.. they opened the whole side wall up when the sun came
up..

Some friends went to one there. I want to say it was in 98 and it was a duo of DJ's known as Skylab 2000.

dead? yes.

sure, there are still the rare parties here and there, but certainly not like there used to. I used to go to up detroit (I was involved in the chicago scene) and remember how there was two different
parties every friday night and then two or three different parties on saturday night...every week of the year. hundreds of people at each and every event. And they were all relatively decent events.

Today, what is there? nothing.

sure, there are events every so often (once a month or every other month) but they cater to all clueless kids from the suburbs who think the rave is still relevent.

yup, remember all those run down warehouses on the southside? my favorite venue was this abandoned church. you had to climb through a hole in this chain-link fence and walk up a plywood ramp someone
put down. very small place - maybe 300 people would show up. and the main room had the letters F A I T H painted on the floor. I guess it was the church recreation room from the 1960s, but long since unused.
just an old, dead building brought back to life.

and then there was the route and dolton and harvey and the rainbow.

Haha, good ol "under the bridge" I was there quite a few times way back, also extremely underage. I don't think they ever had an official name for that building, just reffered to as under the bridge.

I miss the packard plant too. Good times there with black boogers the next morning after a long night.

Slowly, they are throwing a few parties in a old warehouse theatre here on the eastside, by Eastern market. But rave is dead.

I'm still in the Detroit scene here, but most shows are thrown at clubs, or lofts.

Dead? no
Greatly diminished? yes

In Toronto, there are still the odd illegal/breakin/warehouse party type things, its stronger during the summer when the weather is nicer, its just a matter of knowing the right people.

There are also still the odd raves which do the whole 'map-point' thing. I remeber going to some party way out in the boonies, held under a highway overpass, had to do the whole map-point/treck
through the bushes / dodge the cops kind of thing, was loads of fun.

I'd also say that '99.999999%' of what is advertised as a 'rave' these days, is more 'Legally sanctioned, corporately sponsored, all night dance events'

yep, here in michigan, we at least got a chance to apply for a 4am permit, which helps, but we still fight with athorites about the no dance or live music after 2am law.

Maybe people just don't through them anymore. Talk to some bands and barrow their equipment and set up a stage area for them to play in an large abandoned area/building you know of (I know of a good place for a rave and I'm pretty lame so those on this site that are not as lame as me should know of some even better spots). Get some DJs to play later into the night and just call up your group of friends and have them call their friends and so on and so forth.

I've never actually been to a rave but with the lack of shit to do in this town I just might through one myself. No ones got the balls anymore to be the seemingly normal person that randomly starts a three hundred person party somewhere, most likely because its illegal but that didn't stop anyone before. But then again I'm just talking out of my ass cause with the lack of raves under my belt I can't bitch about not being able to go to a party I've never been to.

This is where the "Rave Act" comes into play, and litterally, at least I know around here, the reason they don't just "do it" and throw the parties anymore is because of prosocution, promoters are
scared. The promoters will be charged with the same charges as running a drug house, each pill, can be counted against them. It gets ugly with the law and this subject.

I <3 Toronto, and think people here are really lucky when it comes to electronic music.

We have great spots like Footwork, which while they only go till 3-4am or so - book some really great talent, and really - its nice being able to goto a club, see a headliner at around midnight/1am
and head home by 3-4am and not be a zombie for the week after.

Then, even though I personnaly *hate* the venue, there is The Guverment, which runs into the wee hours of the morning - which books loads of headliners and is rammed to the tits pretty much every
weekend.

Then, there are the more 'underground' venues like Sudburry'99 which sort of bring back the old warehouse vibe and runs till 5/6am or even later at times.

Then, theres venues like Sonic, whos doors dont even open untill 1am, and if you want a club where you can be dancing untill 10am - or sometimes well into the afternoon depending on how well the party
is going off, thats the place to be.

Then, there is the sketch-fest of Comfort Zone, doors open 6am sunday and run till 3am monday.

Toss in loads of top-40/mainstream clubs to keep the people who like that stuff happy.

Then, during the summer - a pretty active and great outdoor party scene with frequent events on the beach or other outdoor areas if you know where to look.

But, main stream, hiphop, electronica, techno, house, trance, from clubs that close down at 2:30am after last call, to ones that can run into the middle of the afternoon of the day after ---
Torontonians are pretty spoiled IMO :smile:

Bah - if we're lucky in Austin a good DJ comes through to a club once or twice a month. The sound systems can be a little substandard and $10-15 for one DJ is a bit much. The atmosphere is completely
different from Houston raves in 98. Almost everyone is young and dressed to the 9s like ravers. I don't ever buy shit at parties anymore, sell shit at parties anymore, or even take shit at parties
anymore. Even the massives that were going on till about 2002 in Texas were pretty fun.

I just wish I had gotten into parties more when I was like a freshman in highschool instead of a senior. I too feel like a took a really great scene for granted - often simply as a way to get fucked
up or make money. Youth IS wasted on the young though.

I <3 Toronto, and think people here are really lucky when it comes to electronic music.

We have great spots like Footwork, which while they only go till 3-4am or so - book some really great talent, and really - its nice being able to goto a club, see a headliner at around midnight/1am
and head home by 3-4am and not be a zombie for the week after.

Then, even though I personnaly *hate* the venue, there is The Guverment, which runs into the wee hours of the morning - which books loads of headliners and is rammed to the tits pretty much every
weekend.

Then, there are the more 'underground' venues like Sudburry'99 which sort of bring back the old warehouse vibe and runs till 5/6am or even later at times.

Then, theres venues like Sonic, whos doors dont even open untill 1am, and if you want a club where you can be dancing untill 10am - or sometimes well into the afternoon depending on how well the
party
is going off, thats the place to be.

Then, there is the sketch-fest of Comfort Zone, doors open 6am sunday and run till 3am monday.

Toss in loads of top-40/mainstream clubs to keep the people who like that stuff happy.

Then, during the summer - a pretty active and great outdoor party scene with frequent events on the beach or other outdoor areas if you know where to look.

But, main stream, hiphop, electronica, techno, house, trance, from clubs that close down at 2:30am after last call, to ones that can run into the middle of the afternoon of the day after ---
Torontonians are pretty spoiled IMO :smile:




That's a pretty accurate depiction of Toronto Nite Life ! Couldn't have said it better myself !
I love the Footwork vibe cause it's a small venue that packs an awesome party !! Reminds me of Loaded @ systems.... just a tad smaller

The chicago scene is still around and thriving, if youre in the know you can find about 2 little loft parties now and again.

there are some bigger parties that are more rave style going on by one certain production crew, as well as a few other sattellite events now and again.

Really its just a question of people getting venues and then running them till the cops wont let it go on anymore...

i'd say the arizona underground rave scene is thriving. kick ass parties nearly every weekend for the past couple years at least. i think i've been to 25 of them now... and always an amazing time!

here are some pics from various parties i've been to in the last year or so. some warehouses, some desert parties...











you'll find a lot of cool, friendly and interesting people...










and we get some good music too... mars plays here every christmas night at mary x-mas:





and the last party i went to a few weeks ago featured christopher lawrence:




i love az raves! :heart: :mushroom2: :thumbup:

I dont consider loft parties the same as raves. I know plenty of loft parties, but its different. there were loft parties before the rave...

The scene pretty much died out completely at the end of 1999. While there are stll enthusiasts who organize old school raves they just doesn't compare to the mid 90 once.

Huge raves, famous DJ:s from all around Europe, no cops, drugs by the kilogram, sex, original music, kinship. All gone :frown:

I've been to a few contemporary Raves and they feel so washed out. Emo kids with glow sticks. The kids still love it though.

I guess you had to have been there.

Here in Portland, there's a pretty cool psytrance scene, which I consider even better than raves.

Well, I'd rather enjoy what I have now then complain about not having what-once-was.

And, you want sex and drugs by the kilo? go to the closing circuit parties at the end of pride. I swear the Dancefloor at Aria felt more like a bath house then a dance club come 11am. People fucking in the middle of the dance floor, blow jobs in corners, etc.

I remeber stumbling around in a haze, comming across a circle of people who were standing around two guys just going at it full-tilt in the middle of the dancefloor, I went back to the chill out area, flopped next to my BF, looked over to my left and a girl was going down on some guy. Walked to get a drink, and sex of all sorts (hetere and homo) were going on.

Going upto the balcony area looking over the dancefloor and seeing bodies being surfed along the crowd (yeh, body surfing at a EDM event, go figure --- the things people do when looped out on too much GHB).

fun times :P

Nice!

When it comes down to it I'd say I went to my first rave for the drugs, stayed for the sluts, and learned to love the music and dancing.

The best was stumbling into the Astroarena (big fucking public building by the Astrodome where conventions were held) bathroom, rolling my ass off (for the first time too) and also tripping on like three hits of liquid, and wondering if I was accidentally in the women's restroom. No, apparently some very hot asian sluts were asking guys to show them their dicks, presumably looking for the one that was "just right".

Later on some random fucked up girl ran up to me and started making out with me. Presumably my neon fuscia hair was flashy enough to get a bite?

I mean, how's an 18 y/o RPG/martial arts nerd not gonna go crazy for that shit?

The only raves I've been to are a few massive corporate ones like Nocturnal and EDC in LA. They were cool but not as much fun as I expected. Way too many cops and security, everything is too expensive and tightly regulated and the vibe is not there.

The thing I like about 'after-hours' clubs as opposed to normal clubs, is the sense of debauchry going on - and just the pure exessiveness of it. My 'ideal time' to show up at some clubs is at around 6:00am -- the light weights have gone home, and the people that are left are the hard heads, the people too high to go home, and then the people like me : who goto bed early, wake up at 4am and aim to be at the club for 5/6am --- there is just something about that vibe that I love SO fucken much. Its just so exessive, so un-needed --- but wow, great vibe, the tunes tend to be stellar (full on drugged-up music) -- the DJ knows that people are on their last legs so just keep pounding out the tunes that sound like a freight train to keep everyone moving.

Stumbling out of the club at 11am to a PACKED street (ie: China Town in Toronto), walking home pie-eyed knowing that the people around you have just woken up and getting their days started.

the LA rave scene isn't dead. there's atleast 2-3 parties on friday and saturdays. i just went to one last night. ghetto warehouse in the ghetto of LA. had a great time, sober.

the massive ones are fun, but yeah there's too many cops and security. it's all about the forest raves they throw out in the san fernando valley.

I often think back to my high school days during 98'-00' and reminisce about all of the raves I went to. I lived outside of Detroit so there was quite a scene here at that time. Getting a stack of
fliers at every rave, with nothing more than a phone number to call on the night of the party. Intentionally obscure directions to an isolated empty warehouse in the industrial sprawl of Detroit,
yet somehow always full of people. My first two acid trips were a result of frequenting raves.

Although I didn't really appreciate them at the time, I realize now how unique the experience and atmosphere was at these parties(spare the random asshole you might run into). Is there anything left
of this once thriving culture, or has the flame burned out?




have you been to ravelinks.com ?? they have a forum for raves in ur area..
