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.
