The latest in a growing line of big acts booked at The Armory in downtown Minneapolis has been revealed.
Deadmau5 will play the recently-renovated venue on Friday, Aug. 17, with tickets going on sale this Friday at noon.
If you're not familiar with Deadmau5, he is Joel Zimmerman, a Canadian DJ/producer known for his progressive house and electronic music, and whose stage costume is the stuff of nightmares (see above picture).
Expect a frenetic set and a frenzied crowd as Zimmerman dons his trademark illuminated mouse head in the confines of The Armory.
