Tomorrow, Huntington Beach will host a 9-hour electronic dance party. Last week, the city filed a restraining order hoping to stop the festival known as Wet Electric.


Officials were worried that the party could get dangerous and out of hand, especially after the rioting which followed a recent surf competition there. But an Orange County Superior Court Judge said the party could go on.

Joining us now to talk to us about the electronic music scene is Steve Knopper, a contributing editor to Rolling Stone Magazine.
