Your Opportunity to Experience "The Electro-Rave Scene" Circa 1993

Posted By on Wed, Sep 18, 2013 at 4:39 PM

The early nineties were a strange time for us all, but while I was trying to be cool, checking out indie rock and punk bands at the DPC, there was an entire rave scene that I was aware of, but blissfully unexposed to. Thankfully, two U of A students at the time had the wisdom to document the happenings, and someone else was kind enough to put it on YouTube now.

If you don't end up watching all 8 1/2 minutes, be sure to at least check out the wisdom of the guy at the 4:36 mark when he answers the question "What do you think rave and techno is?":

"It's a wave of the future, and you can't be a wimp when you're riding the future. When you're surfing the edge of the future, you can't be a wimp. You can't stand back."

Also, there are many whistles. Far too many whistles.
