OK Go’s Damian Kulash is one committed musician-activist. Not only does he keep up to speed on important issues like net neutrality, he’s also deeply concerned for New Orleans residents still struggling to put their lives back together after Hurricane Katrina.
Damian is a veteran of FMC’s Artist Activism Camp, which brings together musicians to talk about the best ways to engage in positive social change. These yearly events culminate in an all-star benefit concert for NOLA musicians like Al "Carnival Time" Johnson, who lost everything in the storm.
OK Go and Big Easy brass band Bonerama recently released an iTunes-only EP, called You’re Not Alone, which benefits the same cause. But Damian hasn’t stopped there. Last week, he wrote a moving article for the Huffington Post about his experiences in New Orleans. Check it out here.
