Electric Daisy Carnival is finally getting its spot on the East Coast. Prior to the big throwdown June 8-10 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, EDC will make a stop in New York City on May 19-20. A venue hasn’t been officially revealed yet, but it can’t be Yankee Stadium—the Bronx Bombers are home that weekend. Citi Field, home of the Mets, is a possibility. Bamboozle, the Skrillex-headlined festival the same weekend, was at the Meadowlands last year but is departing East Rutherford, N.J., to go south to Asbury Park. Hmm. … Manufactured Superstars lit up the Internet in the past week. And not in the good way, like you’d want. They provided the beats for the Paris Hilton spoken-word ramblefest “Drunk Text.” At least now you won’t have to hear “Stars Are Blind” every time she waltzes into whatever club at which you happen to be partying.
