This weekend, deadmau5 was performing at a gig in Columbia, Maryland. This didn’t go completely smoothly, however. Mid-show, his sound cut off and the visuals locked into place. The tech folks managed to get it up and running, but it did it again a short time after that.
A video a fan captured of the fiasco shows how the musician otherwise known as Joel Zimmerman reacted. In the video, he says, “What the f-ck, I can’t believe that actually happened. This sucks! This is literally every technical musician’s worst f-cking nightmare.”
He then joked, “But I’ve learned to embrace such f-ck ups.” That’s when fans started chanting out his name over and over, showing their support.
“I wish this was like a CD player and I could just start it over. Did my f-cking board die, dude? My mic works, that’s good. Maybe I can sing,” he quipped before launching into song.
