Something new, but who knows if its a variant or not. Its called ''Meowington Hax'

No sir, I've always had a music collection that is culturally relevant and respectable amongst my peers and elders. If you disagree, you must be younger and listen to dubstep or OFTGWHASTOOMANYCAPS.

So, It's been awhile since I've been to a Palladium show but will be down there for the Z-Trip one tomorrow. PARKING? I don't mind walking 1/4 mile or so and I'll be getting down there around 5ish. Any suggestions or will I be stuck with a $20 parking tab?

Park on Las Palmas south of Sunset. Its a doozy.

Just get there early before they hit "capacity" on the floor. Even though you can clearly see a ton of space available (NINFarewell)

On the bright side if you're into teenagers, you'll have plenty to gawk at.

set times for deadmau5: 8/25: Doors 8:30pm, Zedd 8:45, Tommy Lee & DJ Aero 9:45pm, Excision 10:50pm, deadmau5 12am

Who's Excision? Any good?

All of the bitching on facebook about "ALL THOSE RULES" is fucking hilarious

As for parking, Las Palmas works (it's a bit of walk though, no?), so does El Centro. Anything South/East of there should be pretty easy. Just be aware of a lot of one-hour and two-hour parking until 8pm. If you get there early enough you can valet for $3 or $5 at Dillon's depending on the time, just buy a $3 beer inside and get your ticket validated.

Went last minute, held out until about 1030, got 2 tickets for $50. Sometimes cheesy, bro, party music on a thursday night after a really long treading week is just what is needed. Started both pits for Excision. Deadmau5 kids hated us for that. Sorry if you can't agree with this, I had fun and I'm not really into Deadmau5. I also don't care if you think i have shitty taste in music for attending this. I wonder how many people from the board will be there in secret this weekend, its ok though guys you can live a little. Meeting up with board members in person i feel like everyone has a "confession" about who they will see live but not post about on the boards.

TOTALLY COOL STORY BRO!!! OMG!

I enjoyed Ex at Coachella. I was pretty excited to see him but 12th Planet's set outshined Ex's so I felt a little let down. Deadmau5's live show seems a bit underrated on the board. I'm not a huge fan of his music but I am far from hating him. Glad you had fun, wish I could be there.

I completely agree with this post. I can't figure out where the hate for Deadmau5 started on this board, but his new setup is flat out brilliant. The visuals are seriously some of the best I've seen. He has $750,000 dollars in led screens for christ sake!! And to be able see him in a small round venue like the Palladium makes so you can have a great spot no matter where you stand. Think about it, he just played in front of 40,000 people at Lolla and now you LA folks can see him with about 1,500 people. He doesn't go on til midnight so those is no excuse for those of you who work in the evening. Go see this show!! He'll probably be main stage next year with this setup so this gives you a chance to get a great spot and see what it's all about.
Have any of you ever gone back and watched the Daft Punk setup from 06? It kinda looks archaic now. It was groundbreaking and amazing but I'll take Deadmau5's visuals over DP's any day. Maybe they haven't toured again because of the pressure to come up with something as amazing as Deadmau5, Amon tobin's new set up, or plastikman's visuals so they are hesitant to come back. Don't get me wrong, musically Daft Punk is a different beast, but I am not ashamed to profess my love for the Mau5.
Everybody on here loves Daft Punk but hates Deadmau5. It makes no sense. Give the fiver another chance this weekend!! You won't regret it.

Daft Punk has been putting out quality jams since the mid 90's, please dont compare them to Deadmau5.

Ive watched the Mau5 progress and become more and more popular by the second. People hate on whats popular.... but lets face it. He has pre-recorded sets that are basically choreographed to his 750,000 dollars worth of LED screens. It gets old after youve seen it a few times.

I dig The Fiver.

He gets a bad rap because of his awful, underage following, and of course, the Mau5-heads. It's a terrible crowd that most, understandably, cannot stand to be around.

Musically he isn't brilliant by any means, but there are certainly worse options out there, i.e. Skrilly Vanilly.

Like I said, I'm not comparing him to Daft Punk musically. However, this new setup is much more of a "live" setup than the last tour. He was manipulating and mixing a lot last night. Just sayin

DeadmauFive is hated because of his arrogance and his fans. There are the few tracks I like from him but as a whole he's nothing too special and people act like he's the greatest thing in the fuckin world. Since music is the main thing I go out for I want to hear great music, something Deadmaus can't provide in my opinion.

I can honestly say I've never chosen to see or not see an artist based on their fans. I'm not there to hang out with the fans. Also, who cares if someone is arrogant? Aren't most rock stars? That bring said, if you don't care for his music I understand why you wouldn't pay to see him.

It's like seeing a drum n bass act at Respect as opposed to seeing them at a rave. Respect is going to be 10x better because the crowd itself adds a vibe to an event that plays a big part in my enjoyment. If I'm at an event surounded by 16-19 year old bro's and skanks rolling balls giving lightshows for the love of the glove it's not going to be as much fun as a show full of people who act like adults. At a rave it's expected, but at a one-off event showcasing a certain artist it's not something I want to deal with.

I had a blast on Thursday night. Palladium holds 4,000 and he just finished shows in Europe playing for more than 10x that. This was perhaps my 12th time since that afternoon Sahara set at Coachella 2008 and I think he's getting better and more playful. The sound is always fantastic there with big bottom and the audience went berserk the whole show. I don't care who comes to the show and I don't care if some of it is merely Press Play - deadmau5 makes me crazy when I get to see him live.

When I first discovered Deadmause, I had downloaded his "Goes to Vegas" mix, its got some great mixes (I love the "Complicated" track), but as the mix progresses, I find it very easy to get lost from the music and focus on something else. He brings it back at some points, but never fully kills it.

On the audience perspective, its way more fun to be around people enjoying the music not RELYING on drugs to enhance their experience and acting like dumb asses tripping over everyone and begging for water from strangers as they have stared at your water bottle like zombies for the last two songs. At least offer me a massage you rolly-polliis

Because its too hard to say - My body needs water, I'll be back in 5, Mr. Music.

I'll be heading in tonight for his set, and we'll see how he does..

I'm going to start attending Skrillex & Deadmau5 shows so I can sell piperazines to underage high school kids.

I went on Friday...had a good time. The crowd was mediocre but not as bad as I'd psyched myself into thinking they'd be. Deadmau5 wasn't overwhelming but I'd say going to this was worth it.

But geez, Deadmau5, please get some better warm up acts. Excision was intolerable.

He had Jason Bentley open over the weekend shows. So yeah, there was quality for at least 2 shows.

Does he still wear the mouse costume when he performs? I've seen him a couple times at festivals and that's really the only thing I remember. His music isn't really good or bad in my opinion, just not particularly memorable.

Went Sunday @ Midnight, got blessed with some VIP and went in. While waiting for my friend I could hear Deadmaus BOOMING from outside.

His visual setup was very impressive, also very similar setup to a certain prophetic robot stage. (Feed my trolls, feed!) He's definitely had some impressive visuals that fed my video game nostalgia, some other visuals weren't anything new for electronic music, some seemed even a little half assed.
Whatever track he was playing that had the black pyramids scanning over and over, well I felt with the booming beat going on, some armies of pink elephants would've killed it, but that's me.

Now for the hate:
Now what was with the female vocalist whom he reveals half way through her track that she's lip syncing?! As far as tracks go, I felt his mixing theory wasn't present, unless his preference is to go from one thing to another without thought of transition.

He had a trance/house track hyping up the whole Palladium for a good minute and then went to this odd dubstep stop in the music world.The mind felt more focused on the buzzing mouse animation more than the music at that point. Wish I had a better camera in to show the difference in the crowd from the trance/house to dubstep. When the dubstep came on, you saw a few single arms thrown up and lethargically praising the beat, you could see the crowd's energy being drained. The shufflers were not having it. At all.

He went back to trance/house whatever you wanna call his usual style and the booty shaking continued. The crowd was fun, and the people in the VIP area were really cool not to shove eachother out of the way, there was this one guy in a red shirt who was IN LOVE with the music the whole night. I didn't think a guy of that size could bounce so much. And thank you group of drunk girls who just wanted to rub their asses against whatever was near by. I dont think that ever offends anyone.

All in all, he was entertaining to see, I wouldn't say worth $50, maybe $30. In this economy, we must be choosy of who we throw our money at blindly.

Who has Amon Tobin tickets btw I'll pay anything for seats at the Music Box.
(Fuck Pomona)

EDIT: @ Bobert: He switched up the mouse head a few times, he had a very impressive LED one that coordinated with the visuals in the background and for the last few songs he threw on a white one (looked like an unfinished head)

And I think he or someone else popped out as a ghost ala - sheet with holes cut in it for eyes. That was fucking random. Many were confused.
