Deadmau5

Dec. 7
8 p.m.
$50-$177
DJ, EDM

Deadmau5 specializes in straightahead progressive house, bouncy and hypnotic, punctuated by occasional experiments in trance (“Strobe”) or noise (“Survivalism”) or contrived social commentary (“The Veldt”). Yet it’s the slick impersonal crunch of his default musical template that sounds most warmly emotional, even benevolent and kindly in a ghostly, robotic way. He performs inside a big glowing, rotating cube. With Mad Zach and K?D.
