BAAUER, ARAABMUZIK
9 p.m. Juanita's. $20.


Sometimes, for reasons that are unknown even to their creators, certain songs will just explode in popularity. One minute, a song is just a song, another in a long line of millions, and the next, it's suddenly that song, that ubiquitous-bordering-on-inescapable nugget that's all anybody's talking about.

Brooklyn DJ Baauer probably never could've imagined the response he'd get from "Harlem Shake," a little "electro-trap" ditty he released back in 2012 via Diplo's Mad Decent label. Yeah, you and anybody else who got on the web or turned on a TV in the last year knows about that one, in which one person is dancing in a mask while the others are oblivious, then when the bass drops they suddenly all go crazy. Or something. It was definitely a "Today" show-level meme. Of course, he's done much more than just "Harlem Shake."

Also performing: dexterous Rhode Island producer AraabMuzik.
