Joey Casio is a one-man electronic punk band who has been a vital part of the Olympia music scene since he was teenager. He has trekked around the U.S. many times with his tattered suitcase of drum machines and synthesizers, effortlessly moving between the basement and the dance club, tossing beats and poems to a wide variety of ecstatic audiences. His music draws from the intertwined histories of DIY punk and post-disco DJ culture to create something wholly new for this unsteady era. Joey, who once lived across the street from the Dub Narcotic Studio, now lives in Oakland, California.
