No word on whether Assemblywoman Fiona Ma will be there
San Francisco police are asking all you ravers to leave your pacifiers at home and stay away from Treasure Island this weekend, where an illegal rave is reportedly being planned.

Officer Albie Esparza tells us that a parent tipped off SFPD, saying that kids are planning to attend this rave on Yerba Buena Island Saturday night. However, police have not been able to confirm this. "We tried contacting promoters to see if anyone knows about it -- but nobody does," Esparza says.

In any event, SFPD is going to be prepared just in case; cops, including the California Highway and the Coast Guard, will be swarming the island come Saturday to make sure this party doesn't happen.

Here's what SFPD has to say about it:
PUBLIC ADVISORY: "Project X" event scheduled for Yerba Buena Island on Sat, 8/18/12, is NON-PERMITTED & ILLEGAL. SFPD has notified California Highway Patrol & US Coast Guard of this event. Check points will be established & entry onto the island on that date will be limited. Trespassing, vandalism & other related crimes associated with an event of this nature will be enforced.
And if enough of you go anyway? "We will have to shut it down somehow," Esparza told us. 

Well, a party isn't really a party until the cops show up, right?

As some one who loves electronic music and raves I think it is stupid that the police would get involved, it's stupid over protective parents and dumb ass kids who don't know how to keep their mouths shut that ruin it for every one else. Also we would get permits if you would give them to us but since the passage of the RAVE Act we can't get legit venues to let us perform for all ages. Can any one tell me what happend to kids being kids?

"people still go to raves?" Yes. Were you... Were you unaware? Did you not know people still enjoy partying? Oh well, yes, they do. Going out and dancing to music is still a thing people do. Just so you know.

Dear rave babies - Like parties? Then don't tell your parents about undergrounds. Seems like a no-brainer. Kids these days.
