DJ Shadow Kicked Off the Decks at Mansion Miami, Just Like Dennis Ferrer

The show must go on, even in times of grief. And DJ Shadow was prepared to do just that this past Friday at Mansion, the day America lost 20 innocent school children and six brave educators following the horrific tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.

"The challenge for any 'entertainer' working on this tragic day is to find a place to compartmentalize the sorrow in order to carry on," Shadow (AKA Josh Davis) tweeted before the gig.

"That said," he added, "tonight's set in Miami WILL proceed as planned."

However, his set didn't proceed as planned. It was cut short by promoters.

UPDATE Mansion Miami is offering its "most sincere apologies to DJ Shadow and fans for his set being cut short."

UPDATE #2 DJ Shadow just released his "Infamous" Mansion set, asking: "Too hard? Too future? Or just too raw?"
