Nothing about Friday night's party at Revolution, presented in part by South Florida rave-scene stalwarts Culture, is forward-looking. Take the party's deliciously '90s-trip-tastic flyer: It boasts, near the top, that it's "at the old Edge building with the old Edge hours!" For everyone under, oh, 27 years old, the Edge was what Revolution was called two venues ago (there was an in-between stint as the Chili Pepper). It remains legendary among old-school heads as the cradle of South Florida's golden-era underground party scene, where you could catch legends like Plastikman before they blew up further.
