Emo Kids Watch Your Back
Longtime Denver scenesters may know Zachary Helm best as the head mortician for the Denver Hearse Association, a club devoted to lovers of the casket-carrying cars. Or as an erstwhile urban explorer of the abandoned Gates factory. Maybe you’ve even spotted his black hearse driving around town – you know, the one outfitted with vampire wings and a massive cannon (that made Westword’s food critic think he was hallucinating on a blurry night last weekend).
But Helm is an expert at many of the dark arts, including internet video making. Here’s a YouTube video called Emo Assault Squadron he created on the morbid streets of Capitol Hill in 2006. –- Jared Jacang Maher
