The music rave-fest known as the Electric Daisy Carnival draws some of the biggest electronica names, from Crystal Method to DJ Paul Oakenfold.  But it produced two deaths and hospitalized others for drugs, alcohol, and heat exhaustion in Los Angeles and other cities.  So why is Oscar Goodman welcoming it with open arms?  And what precautions will we take when it comes to Las Vegas this weekend?  The CityLife entertainment editor weighs in on the Carnival's big acts and big risks.

The Oakland Raiders are proposing a lease for a new $1.9 billion domed stadium in Las Vegas that would have the team pay $1 a year in rent.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Raiders Executive Vice President Dan Ventrelle called documents presented Thursday to the Las Vegas Stadium Authority a starting point for negotiations.

The 117-page proposal would cover the team's use of the stadium, luxury box seats, concession sales, merchandise and parking.

It also addresses stadium naming rights, advertising and broadcast rights.

A site hasn't been picked for the 65,000-seat stadium.

It would be owned by the authority, with Las Vegas hotel room tax revenues paying $750 million toward construction, the team paying $500 million, and the family of casino magnate Sheldon Adelson contributing $650 million.
