Club Candids: Red Hot Robot Two Year Anniversary Party

If you're in the arts, good luck trying to make a dollar. With any experience, you'll learn the real currency of the creative world is relevancy. But without dollars or bank accounts, how can one tell their net worth?

One indicator is having enough demand for your goods (whatever that may be) to stay alive. Another sign is to be a direct influence on other people's art.

Red Hot Robot, Central Phoenix's ever popular independently owned designer toy gallery and all around "cultureshop" can boast both these merits and did just that at their "Double Happiness" 2nd Anniversary Party. On Saturday, June 6th, the little shop birthday-partied their brains out and announced the release of hip-hop collective, Obey the Altar Native's album RED HOT ROBOT - a project directly influenced by the store.

With a slew of culture enthusiasts mingling to the beats by DJ Anthony Hart (here's your slideshow), the night was a sure indicator of more good things to come.
