Over the weekend some 70,000 people turned out for Hard's Day of the Dead electro fest, at L.A. State Historic Park. The stacked lineup included Calvin Harris, Gaslamp Killer, Boys Noize, The Bloody Beetroots and Baauer. It was largely a success, with a few hiccups.

Finger light shows

We've written about "gloving" before -- where dudes wearing finger-lit gloves wave their hands around -- and it can be cool to a point. But the massive LED screens surrounding the stages were a pretty sweet spectacle, and it's hard to imagine how some guy impersonating a magician could be more entertaining. -Mary Grace Cerni

Not dressing for the weather

We fully understand and even respect the impulse to be naked (except for some sequins) and call it a costume. But to roll out of the house into the chilly November night and then complain about how cold you are all night is kinda dopey. -Katie Bain
