Rave Culture The Alteration and Decline of a Philadelphia Music Scene


Rave Culture The Alteration and Decline of a Philadelphia Music Scene by Tammy Anderson

Exposing the forces behind the decline of the rave scene in Philadelphia and elsewhere


Anderson clearly has a passion for the subject matter and a keen focus on the 'decline
of rave culture which is to be commended. There is a need for in

-depth considerations of post-rave club cultures as embedded in global, national, local and virtual spaces. The thoroughness of Anderson's empirical work, and her engagement with the data is useful and gives voice to young (and not so young!) people and culture. -Karenza Moore, Lancaster University
