Presented by the Yarra Libraries and the Ewing Trust, Techno Shuffle: Rave Culture and the Melbourne Underground is a FREE event at the Fitzroy Town Hall Reading Room, 201 Napier St, Fitzroy on Wed 30 Jan 2019 from 6.30pm to 7.30pm. Though FREE, you need to REGISTER to attend.

Techno Shuffle by Paul Fleckney
is one man's quest for belonging, through rave. Fleckney is a writer, educator and researcher and teaches urban planning at the University of Melbourne.

A rave enthusiast, when Fleckney realised he could be a part of a subculture that transformed the lives of thousands of young Melbournians, he went about and produced Techno Shuffle, a new book that traces rave's evolution from tiny underground clubs to vast events that sparkled with creativity. Meet the personalities and places that shaped a subculture, and learn about the bitter rivalries, the internet and a city on the move that ultimately broke it down.

Unfolding against a backdrop of Post-war migration, gay and lesbian rights, the AIDS crisis, Australian drinking culture, the Melbourne gangland killings and the global ascendancy of dance music; come the '90s, rave teaches the value of freedom, community and respect. Read the first chapter here. Bookings are essential, though you don't need to bring a ticket with you to the event.
