Tonight we have an amazing activist, named TIM ELLIS, dropping by our PLAYDEAD CULT studio space to tell us all about an organization he’s heavily involved in, called LEADNOW. In addition to explaining how this org is a powerful tool for creating positive change, Tim also chats about his past, growing up outside one of America’s rust-belt cities, being radicalized into Neo-Nazism, and being saved by Toronto’s rave scene. He has since become an accomplished advocate for liberal democracy. His story is VERY INSPIRING and he matches his words with a fantastic and fun selection of tunes.
Our host, GOBS, is in support with an eclectic selection of ELECTRONIC goodness, including NEW MUSIC from CONRAD SUBS, DEEKLINE & FIRESTAR SOUNDSYSTEM, DRUMMACHINEMIKE, PURITY RING, a DOUBLE-SHOT of GRIMES, COVID-19 inspired songs from BLARE THE SYREN and SILVERTOOTH SLIM, plus we drop some ARCADE FIRE off VINYL.
