Earlier this year, up-and-coming producer Baauer broke through to the mainstream with his first single, “Harlem Shake”, which became an internet sensation after the YouTube meme went viral. The dance track and corresponding meme had worldwide appeal, catapulting Baauer to international fame. It’s also rumored that the track saved the Diplo-lead Mad Decent label, as it charted for five consecutive weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. Baauer’s “Infinite Daps” tour alongside the equally capable RL Grime hits Mr. Smalls on Tuesday, July 16 courtesy of our friends at Opus One and Obvious, who have a reputation for bringing quality, bass-heavy music to Pittsburgh.
To learn more about the individual artists, head on over to our event page. Also, make sure to check out this solid b2b Boiler Room set from the pair.
Joining RL and Baauer on the tour is Jim-E Stack, who played a recent Obvious party at Belvederes, and Ryan Hemsworth, a member of the WEDIDIT collective alongside artists like Shlohmo, Ground Is Lava and D33J. He’s even managed to impress Pitchfork, who gave his latest EP a 7.9. All in all, this show is packed to the brim with the quality talent you have come to trust from the Obvious crew, and just because it’s on a Tuesday, doesn’t mean it can’t be a banger.
