Whether you loved or hated the art at Coachella 2013 — the giant snail, mechanical praying mantis, ever-changing shade structure and high-flying balloons — I think we can all agree that nothing quite approached the weirdness of giant, inflatable dog poo.
I almost made the connection multiple times this week:
• “This ‘Harlem Shake’ song sounds like something you’d hear in the Sahara Tent at the Do LaB.”
• “Wouldn’t it be crazy if someone played the ‘Harlem Shake’ at Coachella?”
• “Oh, Baauer is on Mad Decent.”
• “Azealia Banks has a ‘Harlem Shake’ remix?There’s a Coachella connection!”
Stompede dancers do the Harlem Shake on Friday in Rancho Mirage.
But I was missing the biggest Coachella connection of all.
