Tomorrow marks the beginning of San Francisco’s Treasure Island Festival. The festival, broken into two days, will feature electronic and dance music on Saturday and indie rock on Sunday. Saturday will also feature the newly added silent disco, which for those unfamiliar is a dance party that has everyone wearing headphones listening to the same DJ.

One of Saturday’s most exciting performers is Deamau5 (pronounced: Dead-Mouse). Born, Joel Thomas Zimmerman, Deadmau5 is a hard hitting techno DJ that beats the beat with club anthems. His growing fame even had him nominated for a Grammy in 2009. Beyond his music, he’s famous for wearing a giant “mouse” hat while he performs which projects multiple images off the mask.
