Baauer Turns Our Music High

May 24, 2016

Harry Bauer Rodrigues, a.k.a. Baauer, has been producing dance music since the tender age of 13, but it wasn’t until 2012 that this colossal trap artist officially exploded onto the dance music circuit with his debut on LuckyMe Records. His infectious, 808 infused production style first reached the masses with his three-track, 12-inch LuckyMe EP, entitled Dum Dum, and only continued to gain footing with thunderous, crunk hip-hop releases like “Infinite Daps” with RL Grime, and remixes of Flosstradamus’ “Rollup” and What So Not and RL Grime’s “Tell Me.” On top of this already exceptionally stellar musical resume, the brightest moment in Baauer’s career thus far came in 2013 when his viral track “Harlem Shake” debuted at number one on the Billboard charts and was later awarded Dance Song of the Year and EDM Song of the Year at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards. His collaboration with legendary hip-hop acts Just Blaze and Jay Z, “Higher,” followed suit, making for a monumental year for Baauer. Since then, Baauer has only furthered his musical exploits with 2014’s five-track EP, ß, and most recently, the release of his full length studio album, Aa.

Baauer will grace the stage at EOS Lounge on Friday, June 3rd for an intimate and bass heavy performance. Tier 1 tickets for this 21+ event are already sold out, but Tier 2 and 3 tickets can be purchased here! And be sure to head to our Facebook event page to RSVP and check out details for the show.

Alumni Weekend 2016 BBQ

March 29, 2016

Santa Barbara’s annual, highly anticipated adult playground, a.k.a. the Alumni BBQ at EOS Lounge, is back in full force for UCSB’s 2016 Alumni weekend celebration on Saturday, April 30th. Complete with an outdoor stage showcasing nonstop world renowned musical talent, live art from local artists Chadillac Green, Gone Gallery and Martin Leyhe, specialty cocktails, BBQ-style drinking games like corn hole, beer pong, life sized Connect 4 and Jenga, eye wear demos by Fello Eyewear, and food provided by Mony’s Mexican food truck and 805 Boba, EOS is once again transforming its outdoor patio into a full fledged festivity under the sun.

This year’s outdoor gathering will coax Santa Barbara’s beautiful party people to move their feet and shake their hips to the musical stylings of globally beloved acts Just Blaze, Cut Snake and Wuki as well as local sets from alumni residents Tyler Robinson, T-Fresh, Convex, Don P, The One Timers and Zeek Beats. While hip hop’s Just Blaze has left a permanent mark in the music world by lending his refined production talents to huge names like Jay-Z, Eminem, Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, Rick Ross and Baauer, Cut Snake chooses to bring a different kind of heat with their unabashed, fuck-all attitude that translates to their lush, atmospheric and deep-leaning sound suited for any and every environment. Wuki, on the other hand, uses his trademarked genre-blending musical perspective influenced by the sounds of Detroit ghettotech and Chicago footwork scenes to seamlessly deliver booty, breaks, electro, and house into hard-hitting club-shakers.

Those who caught wind of the initial launch of this year’s Alumni BBQ lineup announcement have been anticipating the irreplaceably uplifting and beloved stylings of Pumpkin at this year’s gathering, however, due to inexplicably tragic events, Pumpkin, a.k.a. Nicholas Alvarado, unexpectedly passed away on Saturday, March 26th. With his passing, our community has experienced a loss of epic proportions, as Nicholas radiated as a highly influential champion of music, passion and a collective, conscious togetherness. Pumpkin’s music emanated with the unfathomably intense power of bringing everyone together in a fervor of true bliss and both outward and inward acceptance. Those who had the pleasure of experiencing his brilliant, exuberant energy firsthand carry with them the permanent blessing of his insurmountably splendent influences for the rest of their lives.

We will pay tribute to the truly inspirational life of Nicholas Alvarado at this year’s Alumni BBQ to honor the loss of our dear friend.

Tickets for Music is Love and RedEye Presents 2016’s Alumni BBQ at EOS Lounge Saturday, April 30th from 2:00 to 8:30 pm can be purchased here, and be sure to grab tickets for the BBQ’s Pre Party on Thursday, April 28th featuring Sleepy Tom and Dr. Fresch.
