A formerly Portland-based electronic musician remains unaccounted for following the deadly fire at a warehouse venue in Oakland this past weekend.
Joseph Matlock, better known as Joey Casio, was scheduled to play Friday night at Ghostship, a performance and art space in the Fruitvale neighborhood, under the name Obsidian Blade. According to the East Bay Express, Matlock entered the venue around 11:15 p.m. About 10 minutes later, the fire broke out.
While Casio made his name as a producer in Olympia, Wash., he relocated to Portland briefly a few years ago. He performed at PDX Pop Now in 2010.
On Monday morning, officials announced they were halting the search for bodies due to hazardous conditions, and said it may take days to finish.
