Bio

LA*Jesus has pagan roots. Actually, he was given birth in the form of a Halloween costume! Inspired by the enthusiastic response from folks he encountered, the wearer of said costume, Nate Euhus, continued making public appearances as his theistic alter ego. Before long he found himself part of the onstage menagerie of characters flanking indie-rock superstars The Flaming Lips on their 2003 tour. These experiences-of-a-lifetime were capped off by a cameo appearance in The Fearless Freaks, a documentary film about the band.

Seeking to expand upon his new persona and, at the same time, satisfy a growing desire for a new means of artistic expression, Nate added the letters "DJ" to the front of his holy moniker in 2005 and started spinning music both ecstatic and introspective. A copy of his first mix CD, "Stranger To The Sun, You've Seen The Light!", successfully made its way to Blackalicious emcee Gift Of Gab, who was so captivated by this genre-crossing aural adventure that he made an inspiring late-night phone call to the unsuspecting super-fan, offering his props and thanks for being included in the mix.

He can be found several nights a week at his adopted home base, 694 Wine & Spirits in Chicago, Il.
