Micah Davis, known by his stage name Masego, was one of two headliners at Bruin Bash 2019.

Phones were held up high on the floor level of Pauley Pavilion as students captured videos and photographs of the performances.

Masego was accompanied on stage by musicians and a backup singer.

Masego’s unique blend of genres and mellow style had students raising their hands and swaying back and forth in time with the music during some of his songs.

Self-described as a trap, house, and jazz musician, Masego brought a mix of electronic and live music to the stage.

At several points during his set, Masego picked up a saxophone to play key melodies in his songs, adding variety to his performance.

In the time between Masego and rapper DaBaby’s sets, the lights in Pauley were all turned on while security and Bruin Bash staff instructed the audience to move back from the railing at the front of the floor for safety and to reduce crowding.

DaBaby, the other headliner for Bruin Bash 2019, encouraged the audience to use their built-in flashes on their phones as concert lights early on in his performance.

The rapper’s songs had the crowd both on the floor and in the stands moving to the music.

DaBaby’s performance was filled with his own energy as he interacted and danced with the audience.

DaBaby commented to the audience that Bruin Bash staff had instructed him not to enter the audience floor or to throw water on them.

Mosh pits filled with enthusiastic students broke out at several points on the floor level during DaBaby’s set.

The rapper’s legal name is Jonathan Lyndale Kirk and he hails from Charlotte, North Carolina.
