    Looks like Fiona's putting the bill on hold to develop a task force to "create a Task Force with the stakeholders and the community to develop "Best Practices" for Raves and other EDM Events."

    Most likely just bullshitting to get people to cancel the planned protest at her own NYE event.

    As stated above, The Weekly is kind of hating that one of the last musical underground ''scenes'' in this city is going to stadiums and arenas. so of course, they will try to put their bad light on it, and think this is the right path. The other problem is, if it was just all warehouse parties and whatnot, those would get too popular and then have to expand. So they are actually not going in the right direction. The thing is, you can see how the promoters have really been putting alot of these artists in venues around town more and more, with other talent that could have just been at EDC, Nocturnal, TAO etc etc. If they banned the big events, who is stop stop somebody putting something on 2 or 3 nights at the palladium and having multiple acts? They cant....

    USC president urges students not to attend raves

    The educator cites the dangers of the illegal drug Ecstasy, which is commonly associated with the electronic music dance parties.

    By Rong-Gong Lin II, Los Angeles Times

    January 27, 2011

    The president of USC is warning students not to attend raves, saying use of the illegal drug Ecstasy at the massive dance parties "can create a ripple effect of dangers that lead to catastrophic consequences."

    "I wish to warn you about a specific danger that has become increasingly prevalent in the city of Los Angeles: raves. Occasionally, these are held close to our campuses, often at the Coliseum or the Shrine, and they present serious risks to all who attend," USC President C.L. Max Nikias wrote in the letter sent by e-mail Wednesday to USC students. The letter was first reported by the Neon Tommy website.

    Nikias said Ecstasy is common at raves and can produce paranoia, panic attacks and hallucinations. "Therefore, with the collective support of the university's senior administration — and as the father of two USC students — I strongly discourage your participation at rave events," he wrote.

    Coliseum managers declined to comment on the letter.

    The warning came just three weeks after Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Sports Arena officials declared the Together as One rave, which attracted 45,000 people on New Year's Eve, a success. Seventeen patients were transported from the Sports Arena to hospitals, a drop from the previous year, when 34 were transported.

    "It was a good event. It went great," Patrick Lynch, the venues' general manager, said previously of the New Year's Eve rave. Lynch said the addition of onsite medical staff helped reduce the number of patients taken to hospitals.

    But Los Angeles police and county emergency medical services officials said the number of hospital transports was still significant. The 17 patients taken to nine hospitals between 6 p.m. and 2:30 a.m. "is a lot for the local hospitals to absorb," said Cathy Chidester, director of the county emergency medical services agency.

    Chidester said her agency continues to treat raves as mass-casualty incidents to prevent hospitals nearest the Coliseum from being overwhelmed by severely drug-intoxicated patients, who require extensive resources and staffing.

    Patients from the New Year's Eve rave were transferred to hospitals as far away as Harbor-UCLA Medical Center near Torrance, 13 miles from the Sports Arena.

    Raves are big business for the Coliseum and Sports Arena, making up about 28% of their revenue. The publicly owned venues have been struggling financially recently; from July 1 to Nov. 30, their income was $1 million below their target of $2.3 million.

    Some commissioners have suggested that raves' burden on law enforcement and hospitals is similar to that imposed by traditional rock concerts. Police officials disagreed.

    "Since I've been in South Bureau, I haven't had to police a traditional type of rock concert in 25 years, probably," said Los Angeles Police Department Cmdr. Bob Green. Raves are the primary events police must oversee, he said.

    There were 12 felony arrests and 22 misdemeanor arrests at the New Year's Eve rave, mostly related to drugs or false identification. Sixty officers patrolled the inside of the Sports Arena, while 286 officers patrolled the exterior.

    Green said crowding was a problem: Some attendees waited as long as 90 minutes to enter, putting pressure on screeners to work faster at the expense of thoroughness.

    The letter from USC's president was released a week before the Coliseum Commission will meet. The commission — a joint state, county and city panel — could discuss whether to bring back the Electric Daisy Carnival rave in June. A 15-year-old girl, Sasha Rodriguez, overdosed on Ecstasy at that event last year, fell into a coma and later died.

    The letter also came about two months after an 18-year-old USC freshman who had been partying at a rave at the Shrine Auditorium fell six stories from his dorm room. The student, who appeared to have consumed alcohol, marijuana and Ecstasy, suffered multiple broken bones and internal injuries and was hospitalized in critical condition.

    Pasquale Rotella, founder of Insomniac Inc., which put on the Electric Daisy Carnival, released a statement in response to Nikias' letter:

    "The president's advice to the students is surprising.... Insomniac's events aim to cultivate and enrich the human mind and spirit through the arts."

    The state of California has asked USC if it is interested in buying the land on which the Coliseum and Sports Arena sit, USC officials said in December. The sale would help the state with its budget problems. Negotiations were expected to take several months.

    The next meeting of the Coliseum Commission will be Feb. 2 at 2:30 p.m. at the commission meeting room near Gate 33-A on the eastern edge of the Coliseum. An agenda for that meeting has not yet been posted.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    The 18-20 year olds have to do something on NYE, not many options out there. I think EDC will be a lot less crowded due to the 18+ rule. I have been to an 18+ event that was crowded yet.

    You know what I do miss is having massives at different venues. Yes I do understand it's gotten so big it has to be done in huge arenas now. It was just awesome anticipating the next venue. One of my favorite edc's was at the queen Mary fairgrounds. 02, 03 maybe?? I remember you could dance on the beach. You had the long beach skyline in front of you. At some point in the night they had a boat do a lit up water show ala bellagio but much smaller scale.

    ha that sounds pretty cool. I would love to throw a party in front of the Bellagio, btw. When I was there last year tripping out on the fountains I just kept thinking about how rad it would be if it were synced to better music. But yes, I do agree with you - I really miss massives at different venues as well! Indian reservations, water parks, ski resorts, **brand new, all grass, virgin location** - those were fun times.

    Exactly. Another great party I slightly remember lol was jujubeats @ santas village in the mountains.

    I also remember I think it was called Atlantis back in like 2002. What they did for this party is they split it up into three venues. It was at the Orion / q topia / carnival. I remember they rented a bunch of school buses to carry you off to the different locations in dt LA. I look back now and wonder if that would ever be possible today. It was a shitload of kande kidz rollin and fryin balls on a school bus at 4am haha.

    Also how sweet it is @ lake perris was pretty epic. So epic in fact they banned raves from ever happening there again
