Joel Zimmerman, better known as deadmau5 (pronounced dead mouse) kicked off his highly anticipated ‘lots of shows in a row’ U.S. tour this week in support of the release of his sixth studio album, W:/2016ALBUM/. The U.S. tour just hit Oakland, and is currently making its way south through California. After not performing at an Insomniac event for about five years, deadmau5 will be doing a warehouse takeover in Los Angeles, where Insomniac Events hosts their Factory93 gigs catering to underground house and techno artists. So, once you see deadmau5 at The Shrine this weekend, this would definitely be a cool way to see a different side to his music on tour.
The highly respected music producer will also be hosting a specialty pop-up ‘lots of stuff in a store’ and a Warehouse Takeover with Insomniac Events surrounding his four-night sold-out shows at The Shrine in Los Angeles. It will feature his tour merchandise (obviously), and some of his production gadgets from previous tours.
The current tour will feature deadmau5’s new Cube 2.1 production, which is a very intricate LED display that will surely blow everyone’s mind. deadmau5 has always proven to be a production nerd when it comes to his music and his show, so fans are definitely in for a treat. His shows in Oakland also featured a brand new helmet with LED features he was programming effects into the day of the show (since he had just received the upgraded mau5 head). You can check out a behind-the-scenes video on his new stage production on his YouTube channel here.
If you’re in the Southern California area you can check out his pop-up show opening at 346 N. Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90026, on Friday April 29 through Saturday April 29 from 12:00 PM – 8:00 PM. You can view new merchandise and some of deadmau5’s gear and novelty items he’s created over the years.
