The mouse-helmet DJ is no stranger to the retail game, having debuted his aptly-titled pop-up in New York City to coincide with the debut of his ‘a lot of shows in a row’ tour.
This time, the pop-up moves to Los Angeles which celebrated Deadmau5's four-night, sold out series of performances at downtown LA’s The Shrine.
The two-day LA edition (April 28-29) promised to be bigger and bolder for fans, with exclusive, limited-run Ron English deadmau5 gadgets, prints, and posters, as well as vinyl copies of deadmau5’s recent album W:/2016ALBUM/.
There was also an interactive component where fans were able to test out the mau5’s new Wearhaus headphones, nab deadmau5 x Kid Dangerous collab clothes, Kef Speakers, while being mesmerized by Nanoleaf modular lighting panels.

Spotlight: Dynamite Entertainment Is Slated To Release ‘Undisputed Street Fighter’ Art Book This Fall
Last year, Dynamite Entertainment kicked off its new video game inspired art book series with the lavish hardcover, The Art of Atari. This year, Dynamite is taking aim at one of the greatest fighting game franchises ever created: Capcom’s Street Fighter!
Dynamite has announced that it will publish Undisputed Street Fighter: The Art and Innovation Behind the Game-Changing Series, a new art book by writer Steve Hendershot and editor Tim Lapetino. The book is expected to be released in October of this year, and it will feature exclusive interviews with the men and women behind the Street Fighter franchise, as well as the iconic artwork, designs, and images that went into making the games.
“The Street Fighter universe is both iconic and vibrant, and I’m thrilled to be telling the story of how its games, characters, and community came to life, rewriting the rules of gaming in the process,” said Hendershot. Lapetino added that “Creating Art of Atari was a great experience in connecting with video game fans across the world. The book’s popularity showed us the hunger fans have for deep dives into their favorite classic games beyond just nostalgia. We want to tell the stories behind the games. Art of Atari was the launchpad for this series, and we’re excited to dig deeper into the creativity, design, and stories that power the beloved Street Fighter franchise this time.”
The line-up reflects the something for everyone vibe of the city, offering a full buffet of musical choices: 2 Chainz, Blink-182, Zhu, Zed’s Dead, De La Soul, Kaskade, Mura Masa, Pretty Lights, etc.
Life is Beautiful 2017 will also present the second evolution of the popular “Crime on Canvas” art exhibit, which allows festival goers to view and purchase original artwork and rare prints by prominent local, national and international artists. The gallery will display work by Matt Skiba, Mark Ryden, Shag, Tara McPherson, Shepard Fairey, Brandon Boyd and many more.

Sheriff’s Deputy Kenneth Bryant from Hinds County, Mississippi whose wife cheated on him with the R&B singer is now suing R. Kelly.
The singer allegedly had an affair with Bryant’s wife, Asia Childress. The wife confessed to banging Kelly before marrying Bryant in July of 2012, and then again three months after the wedding when she went to an R. Kelly concert. Kelly reportedly gave chlamydia during their bump and grind. But hey at least she’ll always have something to remind her of the time spent with the iconic R&B singer.
Around the same time she got the clam, Childress convinced Bryant to uproot their lives and move to Atlanta to further her career. Bryant suspects the real reason for the move was to “foster her adulterous relationship with R. Kelly.”
From Consequence of Sound:
The lurid details of the supposed dalliance, as laid out in court documents acquired by MS News Now, have all the makings of a Lifetime movie. To start, Bryant claims Childress had a previous relationship with Kelly prior to their July 15th, 2012 wedding, but was told that it had ended. However, after Childress attended an R. Kelly concert just months later in October 2012, the two “re-commenced an intimate relationship.”
Bryant filed the complaint on April 21st against R. Kelly, and blamed the singer for the deterioration of his marriage “beyond repair.” He seeks damages for “emotional, psychological, and financial loss” as the result of Kelly seducing his wife.
