Deadmau5 Almost Serves Up the Meatpacking District Well-done

The meatpacking district was almost served up well-done last Friday night when Deadmau5 lit up an air horn at club Provocateur during his new song "The Veldt," causing a flame that nearly lit himself and the crowd on fire. After the set, he tweeted, "Omg I actually lived through that . . . Nearly blew up myself and a Buncha people in the booth. Pyros a b*tch.”

The trendy Canadian DJ, born Joel Zimmerman, is known for his thumpy house music and wearing a gigantic mouse bobble-head often adorned with multi-colored lights. No word on if the bulbous head had anything to do with the incident. The crowd was said to consist of over 300 attendees including Hilary Rhoda, Ciara, and Yo Yo Ma.

Deadmau5 Hits NYC Tomorrow

Possibly the most iconic and recognizable producer of our time, deadmau5 has built a serious public persona. Fortunately, that's not all he has been cultivating as one of the premier house producers in the past decade. Working with some of the biggest names out there, deadmau5 has enjoyed a prolific and varied career at the forefront of EDM. There's not much more I can or should say about him. If you're into house or EDM in general, you already know and love the mau5. Here's a video of his live performance at Joonbug's New Year's Eve 2012 event. As you can see, this show is not so much optional as it is obligatory.

Lucky for us, deadmau5 is coming to NYC tomorrow, May 4th for a show at Provocateur over on Hudson Street. Go here for more details!

Parker Plays Hardball at Provocateur

People are talking about The Social Network. And, it seems to have made its mark at Provocateur. It was just another night when Sean Parker, past President of Facebook made his arrival at the super-strict downtown nightclub. Door goddess, Sheena Tesora, didn't want to let the girls he was with in. Why? Because they were too short. No one in the line was surprised. Provocateur is known for its ultra selective door and it's known around town that they do have a height requirement for the ladies. Parker, in a monotone rage, promised to erase Tesora from Facebook.
