It has been a terrible week for Lethbridge’s music community. Two stalwart pillars of the community have passed away this week way too young.
James Nishima, best known as DJ Booda passed away suddenly Aug. 28. He will be missed by a lot of people. He inspired numerous local performers and basically kickstarted Lethbridge’s hip hop scene. In addition to being a fantastic DJ, he was not afraid to dream. He brought in a variety of high-profile acts from well-known rappers like Riff Raff, Deezuz, Madchild, Swollen Members, Moka Only, Kyprios and Snoop Dogg, just to name a few. He also brought in up-and-coming rockers like Dragonette and well-known names like 54-40, Matthew Good, Finger Eleven and Gob. In doing so, he brought a taste of the big-city excitement to our small town. And by doing so, thumbed his nose at those who would denigrate Lethbridge as Deathbridge.
