GIANT MOUSE ATTACK!
Last night, I headed over to the Kool Haus for the third night in a row to see Deadmau5. Now, I’m used to seeing all kinds of different crowds – Thursday I was there for Taste Of Chaos and saw a lot of emo kids, Friday for Decadence it was definitely a mixed bag as Vanessa mentioned but lord, when my friend Mary and I walked into the Kool Haus yesterday, we were shocked to see so many bros in attendance! We even witnessed two bros having a good time, humping each other enthusiastically “as a joke”. Right.
Anyway, crowd aside, the show was pretty good. The Whip and Late Of The Pier, who both hail from the UK, served the crowd some electro/rock music to warm them up – but the crowd wasn’t feelin’ it. While I was shooting Late Of The Pier, people were clearly getting impatient and starting to chant “Deadmau5, Deadmau5!”.
I admit it was a bit of a strange mix, and the openers probably should have been DJs instead of bands, but it’s not hard to show a little bit of respect, ya know?
Around 1:30am, the man with the giant mouse head himself came out on stage to the deafening shouts of excitement and clapping from the crowd. Deadmau5’s prog-house beats had everyone in the club dancing up a storm. While I may not be too familiar with his tunes, I can say he definitely ripped it, and the crowd seemed to agree.
