RIP – BEAU VELASCO


EXPIRED: 09/26/09 – Beau Velasco, 31, co-founder of Baltimore-by-way-of-Australia electro-punk group The Death Set, died yesterday in Brooklyn. They released the album “Worldwide” in 2008 after which he supposedly stopped touring.

The track “Negative Thinking” became an emo hit and Velasco – in a transitory phase – moved to Brooklyn to paint, make jewelry, get more tattoos and record under the name VLXO. He even roadied for the band Japanther and worked in Black Ink Tattoo Gallery in Harlem in exchange for a few free tatt’s.
