    yes, i like to rave.

    i am very healthy in my daily life in terms of eating, exercising, etc., but sometimes I've just gotta go to a rave, take some E, and dance all night. ive had some of the greatest nights of my life while rolling at raves, but its hard to meet other gay guys that do the same.

    of course while at the raves, there are plenty of gay dudes, but when im rolling, i get a lot more observational with the hot guys, and not very interactive. so im wondering if there are any ravers in southern california (or elsewhere).

    Do you have to do E at Raves? Are these the parties with shirtless guys and half naked women? I've never been to one... They looking iteresting but I'm afraid of the E.

    I used to rave all the time back when I was a teenager. I've only been to a few in the past couple of years though. Last one I went to was in Atlanta...was called Solidarity II. OMG is all I can say lol...they had like 3 bands outside playing music..on the inside, they had about 10 different rooms, each with different kinds of music in it. The place was packed out with all kinds of people, young and old. People were trippin, rollin, smokin, you name it. Lights, music, people...it was great. Haven't been in a while, think those days are over now.

    I was a raver kid, but 10 years ago! lol, I don't know if the true rave scene exist anymore, but one thing for sure, it was great training to become a gay circuit boy. Most of the so-called raves I hear about nowadays are more like very organized dance parties at either big clubs or here in SF at the Bill Graham. Oh, and we have the Love Parade in September, same weekend as Folsom St Fair. icon_eek.gif

    no, im not talking about circuit parties... and no you don't HAVE to do E... but it sure makes it a helluva lot more fun

    there may be some truth in the "true rave scene" not existing... but it all depends on your definition. i really missed out on its peak in the late 90's in california, but there is still some great parties now, either in massive organized event style or in the mountains/desert/warehouse style.

    recently ive been to monster massive (halloween at LA Sports Arena) and Nocturnal Wonderland (downtown LA). Nocturnal Wonderland with Chemical Brothers was one of the greatest events/moments/feeling of my life... the music, the visuals, the people, the vibe, surrounded by downtown towers... just amazing

    Hey Hunter!

    Raving Dude here in San Francisco! I have been raving since 1997.Parties have played a major role in transforming me into the creative fun person I am today.Before the parties I was kinda shy but after my first party I was hooked.

    I went to few L.A parties and there are alot of hot guys there. I thinking about checking it out again.

    The parties here in San francisco are getting better. The guys here are either way candy-ridiculous are just bi. The scene here is about House music.

    Fellow raver here ~ been interested in the scene for about 10 years now, but only started to party about 2 1/2 years ago - and I love it.

    This thread is quite old...but who cares!
