Native American Elder from Viral Protest Clip Was in a Skrillex Video

By now, you’ve probably seen the viral encounter that took place between Native American elder Nathan Phillips & students from Covington Catholic High School when an anti-abortion rally converged with an Indigenous Peoples March last week in Washington D.C.

However, this was not the first time Phillips’ face was seen by millions. As it turns out, the Native American protestor also starred a music video for Skrillex back in 2012 for his single “Make It Bun Dem” featuring Damian Marley. You can watch the video HERE!

New Vegas Superclub to Open w/ Cardi B, Above & Beyond and Kaskade on the Bill

The Las Vegas nightlife landscape is already stacked, but a brand new club will arrive this year. The Palms Casino Resort has announced the grand opening of a superclub called KAOS as part of its $690 million renovation.

KAOS will consist of a 73,000 sq ft dayclub and a 29,000 sq ft nightclub. For comparison, Sin City mainstay OMNIA Nightclub clocks in at 75,000 square feet. As far as programming is concerned, KAOS’ management has locked down exclusive residencies with Skrillex, Kaskade, G-Eazy, Above & Beyond and Cardi B. For the latter artist, the partnership will mark her Las Vegas nightclub residency debut.

DJ Killed For Playing ‘Boring Music’

A DJ in Uganda was reportedly killed last week for playing ‘boring music’. During his set, a mob of partygoers got angry, killing the DJ inside the venue.

The victim, Jerry Okirwoth was DJing at a dance club in the Nebbi District of Northern Uganda. He attended Parombo Secondary School and was a part-time DJ. The Nebbi Resident District Commissioner William Bob Labeja blamed the venue’s management for the incident for failing to protect Okirwoth.

As the head of security in the district, I will no longer allow any disco operators to conduct their businesses in the sub-county and anybody who defies the directive will be prosecuted. All disco halls in all sub-counties must be closed because they are causing insecurity and redundancy among the youth.

This is just the most recent incident involving revelers attacking DJs. A similar situation occurred in 2014 when three Zimbabwean men assaulted a DJ for playing “boring music,” they were charged for murder.
