v. to create intricate hand motions, improvising involved, while both hands are grabbing glow sticks. This art form is extremely popular at technology college parties where 90% of the people are Asian. Can be done at a rave (see above), or dance, club, party, etc. where techno (maybe trance) is played. Can be done with strings for the twirling effect. The basic configuration consists of a bent over figure-eight, meant to drive people on x out of their f'ing minds. (Also popular at CTY dances. lol...) Highly respected form of urban dance.
"Dude, you should see Devin rave... he owns the dance floor with those sticks."

"Yeah, well, Dave can kick his raving ass with his glow sticks."

"Jeannie owns them both. She's got raving style."

"Do you rave? Can you teach me how to rave?"

The greatest party ever, though comes with consequences, bringing in many substance abuse deaths primarily exdussy and Roofies, but still fun as hell.

Basically , a crazy house party . Invite all your friends , and have them invite their friends , and their friends , too . Its not a good rave unless you dont know half of the people there . These things should be huge . Sometimes , people may "rave - hop" which is going to and from multiple raves a night .
Anna : I want to have a rave , but i don't have enough friends :(
Bobby : I'll bring all my friends !
Anna : Alright dude , this is gonna be crazy !

1. A primitive and non-descript word used to connotate the blossoming mass interest in the undeground scene of electronic music, drugs, and parties. The word came to full-flower in the late 1990's, but took a turn for the worst in the early 2000's. By then, a wave of drug overdoses, emergencies, and public fear cast the word into mainstream television use as more and more reporters, entirely disconnected with the culture, beat it to death in the daily news. This ignorance was greatly exemplified by adding a hypen and the word "party" to "rave", which was totally unnecessary, but kept the aging, elderly people who vote good and scared, until they had almost completely eliminated any event that ran over a single day.

2. Directly after the word "rave" was thrown on the trash heap of words that cool people no longer said, it remained unused for a period of several years. A re-surfacing of the word eventually took place, with it now being used as a symbolic word, tinged with sarcasm, to mean, roughly, "beat," or "beaten to death." The new use is characterized by a completely lack of enthusiasm.
1. Tom Brokaw- "Do you know what your child is up to? Many go to all-night rave-parties and take ecxtasy, a drug known to cause brain damage in rats."

Raves are also known as Radical Audio Video Experiences due to the varied lighting effects as well as projected visualizers that go to the music.
In order to keep the fact that you frequent the rave scene every night you casually refer to them as radical audio visual experiences to coworkers. Their interest piqued they eventually join you and become addicted to E.
