Michael Tullberg’s “In Seventh Heaven” riot article now up on Insomniac.com!
What’s up?? Just wanted to let you guys know that “DFTS” author Michael Tullberg is now writing retro reviews of classic raves for Insomniac, and that his first piece is now up on their web site! It’s the story of the notorious 1996/97 “In Seventh Heaven” New Years Eve riot in downtown Los Angeles, which is also featured in the pages of DANCEFLOOR THUNDERSTORM. Here’s the link:
We’ll let you guys read the article for yourself, but suffice it to say that it wasn’t a pretty evening that night. It involved bogus synthetic drugs, numerous hospitalizations, and the LAPD coming in and shutting the party down with all the subtlety of a rhino charging. A bunch of Michael’s images are also featured, along with some video which shows ravers fleeing for their safety down the street from cops in riot gear.
More articles are to come, from events that didn’t end in such cataclysmic violence. Stay tuned.
