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!
One of the most gratifying aspects of life is when things come full circle. Good writers often include examples of this karmic turn around in their media be it through visual gags, narrative, or character development.
It was with special pleasure, then, that 710 Visuals accepted an offer to perform at the Womb Room, the same venue where we’d originally witnessed liquid light art in action and been inspired to invest our time and energy into the medium ourselves.
