- Aspired Man
Watching the doors line up early at XS in Encore Las Vegas watching guys get turned away with hundreds in their hands and even seeing groups of attractive girls overlooked without hesitation, one has to ask themselves why the hell this guy Deadmau5 gets so much fanfare. Is his music that amazing, does he perform any special show that blows people away, what is all the hype about? I’ve seen him on tv and heard Ghosts’n Stuff a few times but was his show deserving of this. I talked to some girls who told me that they were told by a promoter that they had to go to Tryst last night (one of Wynn’s other night clubs) just to get a ticket into see Deadmau5.
Ok, lets get real about this. After going into the show at XS, thanks to my VIP host friend, I realized that people didn’t know much about this guy. When he came on the fire-code busting crowd went crazy and again when his better known stuff went on such as Ghosts’n Stuff, but otherwise it was just a normal DJ show where the DJ wore a giant mouse head. I couldn’t and still cant figure it out. These DJ’s go up there moved around a bit, they talk on the mike sparingly and they have the lights blasting while they pump their fists, but in the end this is pre-recorded music which a crafty kid made in his basement then synced it up with an amusing light-show. How was this drawing bigger crowds than Jay-Z or Flo Rida who have created hit after hit. It had to be the music, the drug inspiring trans that this accelerated electronic beat put through your body while being surrounded by hot 22 year old’s drew the big money guys who were willing to drop 10k on a table which in turn brings in more hot 22 year olds with shorter skirts who’s only idea of having fun is to sit and be seen at a better table than other hot 22 year olds and the cycle repeats itself, leadng to an amazing party.
In my opinion Deadmau5 is worth going to see once, its something that is memorable and exciting however you will quickly get over it once you realize you cant move, drink or make it to the bathroom unless you are willing to spend 5k on a table. Just avoid the fist pump if possible, it is very sheepish.
