Raves and Drugs


In the early 90’s, Raves were underground parties that took place at makeshift clubs, usually in warehouses.  The DJ would spin techno music that evolved into several different styles, such as Jungle, Trance, Drum n Bass, and Dub Step.  I remember how it changed a lot of kids’ styles, who went from wearing old, baggy Goodwill-copped pants and torn hoodies to designer clothes.  Quickly the skater and hardcore look was abandoned for the designer-thug look and people could easily spend a thousand dollars on an outfit.  Of course, it helped to pay for all that gear if you sold drugs, so Raves also helped turn many kids into serious druggies.  Before Raves came around, it was all about weed, 40’s, and shrooms.  But after hitting a few Raves, Ecstasy, Heroin, and Cocaine became easier to find.  In Leech Mob: A Novel about a Connecticut Gang, you get to read about Kelly’s first experience at a Rave.  This is the straw that breaks the camel’s back and, after the cops raid the joint, Kelly is hauled off in cuffs.
