Las Vegas mayor Carolyn Goodman officially proclaimed January 2, 2012 as "deadmau5 Day" because that's when the electro/house DJ from Canada launches his residency at Wynn Las Vegas. (He plays at XS Nightclub during New Year's Eve weekend.)
Jesse Waits, co-owner and managing partner of XS and Tryst nightclubs, says the recognition of Deadmau5 has to do with the masses trooping to Vegas for not just gambling and all-day-long dabauchery, but also electronic dance music. He says, "The following for deadmau5 is phenomenal, and I applaud Mayor Goodman for recognizing both his remarkable persona alongside his ability to drive visitor traffic from fans traveling across the globe to experience his live sets."
To celebrate January 2 in style, we say: Make your own Deadmau5 Head! Here's how.
