Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Mouse-eared EDM mascot Joel Zimmerman (a.k.a. Deadmau5) celebrates Halloween with an outdoor, contactless version of his annual Day of the Deadmau5 shows. Taking up residence at the Chicago Drive-in at SeatGeek Stadium for two consecutive nights at the end of October, Zimmerman will perform "unhooked," ditching his 21-foot-tall cubic DJ booth, but retaining the retina-searing visuals and booming sound production that characterize his live sets.

While you can expect plenty of bass-dropping tunes at this socially-distanced event, Deadmau5's latest single, "Pomegranate," finds the producer embracing disco-tinged electro-pop with the help of the Neptunes (Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo). It's the first taste of a yet-to-be-announced new record, so don't be surprised if Zimmerman debuts a few more tracks during his set.

Each ticket for the Day of the Deadmau5 concerts admits a car with four passengers—and don't forget your masks, because you'll be required to wear one outside of your vehicle.
