Portland rap promoter and professional MC Idris Oferrall, better known as “StarChile,” is hosting a benefit for Trail Blazers’ DJ O.G. One (David Jackson) at Holocene on May 7. Jackson, who has been the Trail Blazers’ in-house DJ for nine NBA seasons, has not yet been able to resume his role with the team following major complications from cancer surgery on March 14. He has instead needed assistance with medical expenses while unable to work, which you can read more about on his GoFundMe page, here.
The benefit, presented by Holocene and XRAY.FM, will feature an impressive lineup of local artists with whom Jackson has built relationships over the years.
