Videos featuring Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” became a meme starting in February of this year, which in internet time is practically a lifetime ago. So if you’re ready to start enjoying it ironically or even nostalgically, EDM musician Baauer will perform in Iowa State’s Great Hall of the Memorial Union, 2229 Lincoln Way, Ames on Oct 20.
Baauer (real name Harry Rodrigues) saw “Harlem Shake” debut on top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart and stay there for five weeks due to YouTube success.
Tickets are $20 and are on sale now through Midwestix.
More than a dozen “Harlem Shake” videos were made in Des Moines. Here’s the one with the most views:
