Almost carrying out what many a chorus has threatened to do, crossover electronic star Deadmau5 nearly set a New York City club on fire Saturday. Check his tweeted reaction below. 

In what was a headline writer’s wet dream, the Canadian DJ — real name Joel Zimmerman — let off an air horn, which in turn let off a huge spark, nearly torching club Provocateur, an oh-so-cool joint in New York’s oh-so-sexy Meatpacking District.
