You can't see the mouse helmet on the latest album from EDM superstar Joel Zimmerman. But you can hear it. Deadmau5 brings a love of spectacle – and the humor of a natural ham – to his strobe-lit club anthems. When he cues up "Closer," will the kids know they're waving their glow sticks to the Close Encounters of the Third Kind theme?
