I've been extra busy lately so only managed to get to see a couple of bands perform during the Neon Reverb music festival. They were the final acts on two different nights at two different venues....
Local "fuzz rock" band Candy Warpop played at the iconic Aruba Showroom on Las Vegas Boulevard. This band have upped the ante each time I've seen them, and they put on an intense, riveting performance. If you haven't been able to see them live, they have now released a music video 'Smilefucker' produced by Ryen McPherson.
I also got to see "band, belief system and business" Yacht perform at the outdoor all-ages venue 'The Junkyard' on Saturday night. Their sound was revisionist electro-pop accompanied by some energetic po-go dancing. Audience members were invited to stay and converse with the band afterwards about their creative ideology and any other topics of choice presumably.
