Antho and I went out to the lovely Beauty Bar in Downtown Las Vegas recently to do visuals with the badass band Candy Warpop. Jonas on bass, Amy on vocals, Josh on guitar and Anisa on drums, these guys always put on a great show and we’re always happy to throw some extra-sensory fun into the mix! They’re all multitalented and ambitious individuals, so it’s incredibly inspiring to work with them.
It was an excellent evening as always! The show was well received and we had a lot of fun!
Candy Warpop, in case you’ve been orbiting Pluto and haven’t heard of them, are a badass group of musicians who craft some glorious angst anthems. With Anisa on drums, Josh on guitar, Jonas on bass and Amy on vocals, they combine their individual talents into a passionate performance every time they do a show. We’ve actually done a show with them before, back in the early days of 710 Visuals!
Trust no one who dislikes the song White Rabbit.
It’s fun seeing these old videos as it really demonstrates how far we’ve come since then!
This show was at the Double Down Saloon, which is renowned throughout Vegas for their ass-juice and punk-rock aesthetic. The show went really well and we had a great time!

Getting set up~
Oh, that Pabst blue ribbon, a beacon of comfortingly reasonable malty goodness to hipsters everywhere.
For the start of the show, the guys draped themselves in sheets so as to blend in with the psychedelia going on around them. Much obliged, fellas!
A shame to hide Josh’s stupendeous mane, though.
Security and the other bands were really cool with letting us do our thing and giving us space to set up.
I enjoy the decorations inside the place. Toga party!
