Deadmau5 not dead, but not well either

Anyone who has ever worn a big costume will tell you they're bloody hot inside. Bad enough if you're just outdoors trying to tempt kids into a Wimpy Bar, but really not a good idea if you're going to be bouncing round a small nightclub stage in the height of a fetid Washington DC summer.

Nobody warned Deadmau5 before he went onstage last night at the 9:30 Club. Wearing the enormous mouse head.

Some collapsing and vomiting later, he was whisked off to hospital. The next nine dates have been axed on medical advice.

Perhaps, Mr. D, you might want to think about going with facepainting next time?
