In a piece about "D.I.Y. foodies" in today's Los Angeles Times, the author catches up with the man formerly known in L.A. rave circles as Mr. Kool-Aid. Stephen Hauptführ is now a purveyor of raw vegan food. The man was, "in the late '80s," the piece states, "largely responsible for jump-starting L.A.'s rave scene through a weekly downtown acid-house dance party called Alice's House." I'm not so sure about that. (I could totally be wrong, but I don't recall hearing his name until the early '90s. Here's a piece I did about some of the earliest rave DJs and organizers on the West Coast. If anyone knows how Kool-Aid fits in feel free to speak up. I'm honestly curious for the record).
