Damn right I did. The generic term "party" does not even come close to describing them. I'm talking about those big, messy, one-off events that were everywhere in the early-mid 90s.
My fondest late-night memory is the first time I danced until dawn. It was the summer of 1994, at a production called Sputnik IV, held in the Poughkeepsie Civic Center. Technically not NYC, but I know there were lots of NY kids there. It was huge, maybe 3000 people, with dozens of DJs, laser shows, & screens showing primitive computer animations. My favorite part though, was the small second dance floor set up in the concession area. No fancy lights, just groovy people and acid house. When I walked out in the early morning drizzle, a sweaty mess with pupils the size of teacups, I knew I would never be the same.
How about you guys? Got any memories of those wild events? For a few years it was the thing to do...
