In Memoriam: Chris Schorb, a.k.a. DJ Christ Sinister

Chris Schorb (DJ Christ Sinister) was a founding member of Knowmatic Tribe Soundsystem and Galaxie NYC, a pioneer of Buffalo’s underground electronic music scene, and loved by all for his outrageous sense of humor and unique outlook on life. He died peacefully at home on December 1, 2012, after a nearly seven-year battle against a brain tumor, which never slowed him down or broke his spirit.

A memorial service will take place on Friday, December 21, 6pm, at the Ukranian Cultural Center Dnipro (562 Genesee Street), followed by a massive party celebrating Chris’s life, featuring members of Knowmatic Tribe Soundsystem (DJ Marcos, Xotec, Godmorgen, 3PO) as well as several guest DJs from New York City (members of Populette, Throne of Blood Records, Acidtest DJs, etc.) All are welcome.
