Coachella 2013: Baauer’s Set Highlighted By “Harlem Shake,” Obviously

We get it. Everyone’s tired of Baauer‘s “Harlem Shake.” The thing had the viral gusto of 1,000 PSYs planking on 1,000 goats screaming like 1,000 humans. But dammit, when the actual, real song was played in person at Coachella’s packed Sahara tent on Saturday afternoon (April 20) and thousands of people flailed in a synchronized blast of chaos, it was a scene. Baauer is by no means the most skilled DJ of the festival, or the one with the biggest bass drops or best curation (love that he spun some 2 Chainz just before the rapper’s set, though), but the young guy gets results, with nary a DJ pyramid or LED mask in sight.
