Los Angeles' largest music event, HARD Summer Music Festival, is coming back bigger than ever for its 7th year on August 2nd and 3rd. Last year's HARD Summer, which took place at the Los Angeles State Historic Park, saw over 70,000 fans come out to see the cream of the electronic and hip-hop music crop perform, including Bassnectar, Baauer, Empire of the Sun, Knife Party, 2 Chainz, Zedd, Duck Sauce, and Justice.
Webster Hall held their weekly 'brite nites' event this weekend with Trap heavyweight, Baauer, in the building. 24-year-old Baauer, notorious for his 'Harlem Shake' breakthrough track, proved to the New York crowd exactly what he can bring to the table. Supporting artist, Ryan Hemsworth, eased the crowd into heavy trap music while playing melodic tunes right before Baauer got on stage. Then when Baauer took over the stage, it was all game over. Standing shoulder-to-shoulder with what seemed like an infinite number of trap heads, Baauer blew away all expectations.
Currently on tour, Trap star Baauer is making a pit-stop at Webster Hall this Saturday for their weekly 'brite nites' event. You won't want to miss catching Baauer when he's on the road, with Ryan Hemsworth and CZ as the supporting artists for this show.
Expect a traptastic night with these fellows as they're guarunteed to bring their A-Game to the New York crowd.
You can still purchase tickets here and the age for this event is for those 19 & older.
24 year old Baauer and 22 year old RL Grime are on the forefront of changing the trap game. This past summer, the two of them teamed up to headline a tour across America together, known as the Infinite Daps Tour. Joining in on the tour were Ryan Hemsworth and Jim-E-Stack as the supporting artists.
Between the four of them, there was nothing off limits in their new documentary, Infinite Daps, which was filmed during their tour. The documentary gives an insider's view on behind-the-scenes coverage of their daily lives as the biggest producers of their time. RL Grime and the rest of the cast fondly calls Baauer by his real name, Harry, and the four friends are shown go-karting together on their down time.

Kanye West's first solo tour in five years is coming to Washington D.C. this Thursday, and if you like Yeezus, you'd best head over to the Verizon Center and catch him while he's around. Floor is General Admission (standing, no seats), and tickets are still available here. The show starts at 7:30, so get there early.

This week's Mute Thursday at Lima Lounge will host dubstep/garage artist Kastle. His bass-heavy music have earned him a considerable amount of buzz: among other things, the track "Stay Forever" from his eponymous EP reached iTunes Top 10 Best Electronic Songs of 2012. Thursday night's set is part of his first North American live tour, on the heels of his highly anticipated debut album, KASTLE, which dropped on April 23rd. Doors are at 10PM, and tickets are available here.
You could hear the bass from down the street. As night fell over the Hudson River, a mass of costume-clad fans appeared along the Westside highway, walking against traffic and towards the emanating pounding beats. For anyone in the area, it was clear that their destination was Pier 94, the monstrous venue transformed for the weekend into the Pier of Fear. Premiering for the first night of a doubleheader Halloweekend as Manhattan's very own bass mecca, the pier set the bar high with an impressive lineup featuring Knife Party, Tommy Trash and Kill the Noise, and supporting acts Destructo, Baauer, and Style of Eye to set stage for the madness of the weekend to come.
