Deadmau5 Almost Sets Himself on Fire

Deadmau5 came close to making the “dead” part of his name all that more authentic during a set at a club called Provocateur in the Meatpacking District of New York on Friday night.

According to the New York Post, Deadmau5 somehow caused a spark with an air horn that nearly caused a fire.  As he was in the middle of it, Deadmau5 would have set himself alight, too.

At least that’s the story tweeted from inside the club.  There’s a chance that it’s all an exaggeration, too.
