Eldren's Josh Lee: Musicians rally around violinist detained by ICE

When the members of local experimental rock band Eldren gathered themselves and their gear together for a June 4 show at Aspen's Belly Up, they quickly noticed one person was missing: Josh Lee, the group's violinist, vocalist and electric guitarist. And then they received a call. From inside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center in Aurora, Lee told them he had been detained and could face deportation to his childhood home of South Korea.
