Candy are one of the most intriguing and ferocious rising forces in hardcore today, a band as inspired by the Stone Roses as they are by the Cro-Mags. The multi-state crew — joined by Division of Mind and Super Natural Psycho, who opened the show — recently paid a visit to Brooklyn's Saint Vitus in support of their excellent 2018 opus Good to Feel, and the metal Mecca was filled with mosh-pit fury, communal energy and electric vibes. Photographer Angela Owens was there to capture it all — check out her kinetic images from the gig below.
