Deadmau5 - Sonos Studio - 10/19/12
The show's visual references ranged from old school Nintendo to deep space, and the LED lights weren't even turned up all the way, so as not to blind the dancing crowd. Zimmerman donned his signature mau5head a few times, but it seemed to be too hot inside for him to wear it for long. As such, it was a rare treat to see his concentrated facial expressions as he button pushed and knob-turned a wholly excellent set that ended with standout single "The Veldt."
Photos of the show were on Instagram within an hour after it ended. It's hard to keep something so epic a secret for long.
Personal Bias: My mom came along to this show, and she danced her buns off.
Overheard in The Crowd: "I love the part of the song where it gets really big and loud and dramatic and then suddenly something happens and everyone goes wild dancing." "Yeah, I think you're talking about 'the drop.'"
Random Notebook Dump: Space invader neck tattoo hardcore.
