In the late '80s and early '90s, rave exploded, becoming a force that still reverberates today. Chelsea Louise Berlin was there, and she tells its story through her personal collection of bright, incredible flyers, invitations, posters, and membership cards. Through these indelible artifacts, reminiscences, and quotes, she captures a world of warehouse takeovers, trippy lightshows, Ecstasy, and nonstop dancing--all from the last unplugged youth subculture of modern times.
