raves in nola??greenspun.com : LUSENET : North Carolina Raves : One Thread
hey, i just moved down here in new orleans, and was wondering what happened to the rave scene, it seems the freebass society has dissappeared, is there anyone else down here who throws raves??

The reason why you haven't heard of any freebass parties is because there are no more =( State Palace, the home for all New Orleans ravers, has been shut down by the dea and new orleans police. Donnie (one of the guys who was part of freebass) is now throughing FUDGE, a weekly at the House of Blues. It's on Sat night 18+..and plus it's only 15 bucks, a couple of weekends ago ltj bukem spun and this past saturday night julius papp spun...definately a change for new olreans...but it's for the better b/c it's been outta control for the past 2 years. If you want anymore info on the NOLA scene, check out WWW.Discoproductions.com oh yea..check out our forum...never a dull moment on the web peacey weace ~yvette~

I wish we could bring more and more people in to the rave culture. I'm from Pensacola, Florida and the only thing we have is Bedlems, other than the groove, but the groove has nothing on Bedlems. On Friday nights Angel, Sekay Medina, Shorty, all break out with jungle beats. Bedlems is nothing like what it used to be! I've yet made it to New Orleans to go to the St. Palace. I wanted to go to Zoolu 8 this weekend Febuary 9th, 2002, but from here in P'Cola things are not looking so good. I word of the wise all of the ravers,and DJ's success is what were achieving each and every production thrown. One day people will realize that it takes dedication to commit yourself to the lifestyles that we all live within the rave scence. I can't wait to make it to the State Palace, in New Orleans. Be safe if you're out tonight, do what you love to do most. Hang out with all your friends. Peace Out Maria Hawsey P'Cola Florida

I haven't been to a rave in 2yrs. and was wondering when the next rave will be in New Orleans. I miss the scene so much. It is music that combines every other type of music and that is what brings us all together. It is so awesome that all ravers know and respect the concept of PLUR. for those of you that don't know what it means is ( Peace, Love, Understanding, and Respect )! Some one throw me a line if anyone knows something happening in New Orleans or Mobile.

If you go to nola stop by Ampersands on satrday night this place kicks ass. They always have good djays spining. But it is mostly house other than the all house thing there is no better place in the city then here.

Ravemedia is the most cluttered fucked up website out there and ampersands is gay

You missed a very cool, liberating,awesome time for some of us.But sadly we are torn down by the rulers of the earth.I will always carry PLUR with me,and hope for what once was. Sorry you missed it.....

Hi, I just moved here and I loved the Memphis rave scene. I was so supprised to find that there weren't any down here outside of dance clubs with mediocre dj's. Where is my Irene, AK4000 and D:Fuse when I need my fix? Where do I find the inside track or am I restricted to pop parties at club 735?

There still are parties. I saw Dieselboy a couple months ago and there is supposedly a big party on Mardi Gras for three days. Baby Anne and Icey are at the house of blues on Sat Feb 8. They are huge in the Florida underground scene. I've seen Baby Anne at least 14 or 15 times. She tears it up. As for Icey, he just tags along now. He used to be cool but now he kinda sucks.

let me tell you, ampersands is awesome! definetely go on a sat. but you have to stay until like at least 5 cuz it doesnt start bumping until 3am...dont pass it up...its the most fun ive been to in a while and the setup is just so unique

Just to let you guys know, you got it all wrong...if you really wanna have fun the party is all in Ybor City down around the Tampa Bay area. I have been a raver for a while and that is where I go when I need my fix. There is also a little club called Outerlimits that is awesome in Bradenton. Ybor has a lot of clubs to choose from and you can walk the streets and listen to most of the music before you choose where to go...I used to live in P'cola and then moved to Bradenton/Sarasota area that's how I know...I am living in Germany right now and it is awesome, but as for places in Florida Ybor is the place to be...

i went to zoolu allstars this year.my first party in 4 years! it was smaller but still off the chain.i wasnt too disapointed.it was still the best time i had since the last party i went to.if everyone would stop expecting it to be like it was from 94-2000,and just embrace its eveloution and its inevitable,yet slow,comeback then the rave community will live on forever.hey, this chineese dude took some pictures at the party of me and my friends.he said they were for some website where all kinds of party pictures were available to look at.the problem is,i was so twisted at the time that i forgot the web address.does anyone have a clue?if so e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. -rave on
