Jairus Khan (DJ, hacker, electronic musician, designer, copyright nerd, professional web lord, recovering goth) played this weekend to about 2000 people in Montreal at a festival called Kinetik. When he realized he was going to be sharing the bill with two bands he’d criticisized for their racsim and sexism, he decided – rather than cancel his performance – to use the last five minutes of his set to play a PSA he made, calling out those two bands for what they were doing. Here is that PSA. It’s amazing, and has started a fantastic conversation in the scene.
