Book signing at the smart bar, Toronto, 1998 .
I always thought it sweet that ravers would ask each other to sign notebooks. “Sign My Book!!!”, was often yelled over the music and you couldn’t really refuse. I usually just signed “Thanks for being a part of TRIBE, AlexD” because this is something I really meant. Others would draw complete artworks, self portraits, drop tags, maps to other groups of friends in the venue, or even complex drawings of the event itself. It was a way to memorialize the vibe of the event but also a way to it take the rave home later to enjoy again while listening to the latest rave cassette tapes.
