Even though he’s been detained in a Mexican jail for several days, California dubstep producer/DJ 6Blocc (Raoul Gonzalez) was slated to play Electric Tea Garden Thurs. June 21. All indicators pointed to Gonzalez flying back to the US on Monday (allegedly after having authorities investigate his passport), but further complications have delayed his return, and 6Blocc won’t be performing in Seattle after all. The text message below reposted by LoDubs promoter Jon AD elaborates on the matter:
NOTICE: DUE TO UNALTERABLE CIRCUMSTANCES, 6BLOCC WILL BE UNABLE TO BE REPATRIATED TO THE U.S.A. IN TIME FOR THIS SHOW. THIS EVENT WILL NOW SERVE AS A BENEFIT FOR 6BLOCC, WITH PROCEEDS GOING TO COVER HIS SIZABLE LEGAL AND PERSONAL EXPENSES RELATED TO HIS MONTH'S DETENTION ...IN MEXICO.
