8 p.m., The Village. $20 adv., $25 d.o.s.
No matter how many times I see the proper pronunciation, I can't read Deadmau5
anyway but “dead-mao-five.” Probably because I don't do “leet,” a mostly web language that substitutes numbers and characters for letters. That Joel Zimmerman, the Canadian DJ behind Deadmau5, does should come as no surprise. He's the latest superstar in electro-house, a dance subset built on four to the floor beats and endless blips and bleeps. He comes to the Village after just being named the sixth best DJ in the world in DJ Mag's influential Top 100 poll. Look out for crazy visuals, not the least of which will be Zimmerman rocking a deranged, cartoon-style mouse head throughout the show. Gotta think there'll be some kids calling in sick on Wednesday.
