Our Pick: Electric Daisy Carnival 2009 w/ Thievery Corporation, Paul Oakenfold, ATB, Fedde Le Grand, Eddie Halliwell, Aly & Fila, Vello Virkhaus, STS9, Shiny Toy Guns, Boys Noize, Fake Blood, Shinichi Osawa, Le Castle Vania, Computer Club, Foamo, C-Town, Dieselboy, The Upbeats, Evl Intent, Ewun, Infiltrata, Mayhem, Demo, Spktrm, Hazen, Subflo, Deco, Messinian, Dino, Question Mark @ L.A. Memorial Coliseum

Tonight Detroit-based soul singer Aretha Franklin, otherwise known as the "Queen of Soul," will be headlining the Hollywood Bowl. As always, local multi-instrumentalist/producer extraordinaire Jon Brion (LAist Interview, #2, Review) is poised to jam with friends at the Largo at the Coronet. If you're into classic guitars used by legendary musicians (Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, among others), then head on out to Guitar Center in Hollywood to catch the Guitar Center Legends Collection & Vintage Road Show—open to the public for a mere two days. And, lastly, San Franciscan indie rockers Papercuts will be performing at the Echo with none other than Port O'Brien and Sam Champion guitarist Sean Bones (LAist Interview) in tow. But we strongly suggest heading over to the Coliseum in Downtown to catch the 19th annual Electric Daisy Festival—the largest dance festival in North America, which could feature up to "200,000 dancing feet". LAist favorites Thievery Corporation are slated to headline day one.
