According to Hot Topic and a bunch of Hot Topic-y bands, The Rave is haunted
“You can smell the spirits.”
Nothing strikes fear into the hearts of men (and women) quite like Hot Topic, and nothing strikes fear into the hearts of men (and women) who shop at Hot Topic quite like The Rave. In a recent Hot Topic video entitled “Paranormal Rocktivity,” numerous emo/crabcore/emo-crabcore bands are asked about their spookiest encounters while on the road, and Milwaukee’s very own Rave comes up time and time again.
