A promoter decided to make the most of a canceled Datsik show and give all proceeds for a good cause.
In Iowa City, the promoter for a show that ostensibly was supposed to be on Datsik’s Ninja Nation tour held a very different type of event. They put on a show anyway at Blue Moose Tap House with all proceeds going to the University of Iowa Rape Advocacy Program.
Booking manager Lucas Froeschner explained to KCRG TV that after reading the accusations he had to do something. "Instead of talking online we could do something to change it so hopefully this helps,” he said.
Blind Studios Lighting owner Eric Baker donated his lights and time to the event
"People don't really put in the effort to making the changes it's all a slap on the wrist or they say they're sorry and that's it," said Baker to KCRG TV.
Datsik has been accused of raping and sexually assaulting multiple women, often giving them drugs and alcohol until they were barely coherent. Since the accusations were made public, other women have shared their own alleged horrifying Datsik experience. He has since been dropped from his label, booking agency, PR and canceled all of his tour dates. He also was kicked out his duo Ephwurd.
