Photos: Return to the raver parking lot at Caffeine Music & Arts Festival 2012

With another Caffeine Music & Arts Festival on the books for 2012, take a look back at last night's parking-lot scene outside the 1STBANK Center with the folks who traveled from far (Texas) and near (the Springs) for the all-night annual party put on by Triad Dragons. This motley crew drove down from Wyoming for the party with a mixed group of veterans and rookies to the rave scene. "This is our last hurrah before we graduate." This was her first show, not his, and they were both very excited for it. You can sense nervousness in people who've never experienced a rave, but the anxiety is paired with excitement. Here we have a promotor from Texas who raved about the scene in Lubbock and how it's blowing up.
