Hmm.... you mean big parties in warehouses? Or nightclub culture in general?
If the latter, you've pegged the "start" a few decades and a couple of generations too late
Yes, I know... it's all a bit relative to when/where you grew up but it's always interesting to see how some Brits from Gen X/Gen Y consider the Acid House movement as the beginning of all club life.
Now that we've established that it's not "the movement that gave birth to it all"...
Maybe a night like Retro at Pacha would fit the bill?
That's the key point I was making - it's a UK-centric view from a certain generation...the "rave" scene gave birth to clubs as we know it in the UK....living in England in the 80 and early 90's it was life changing.
