It’s been a while since I’ve seen Jovontaes. I’ve seen them at CD Central instores, but I’m pretty sure this was my first time seeing them in a club. This way is much better.
Jovontaes threw a couple curveballs during their set, the majority of which pretty successful. In my opinion, they’re at their best when going through a long, drawn-out section before segueing into a strong riff. There were traces of Lou Reed and a bit of Black Angels. It’s not really my normal bag, but their set just proved why it’s good to switch up your bag.
To close, Jovontaes finished with their song off a new Lexington compilation tape.
I can’t remember the name of the song, nor can I locate the name of the tape online, but it was one of the best of the night. “Killer Pilz” was the best of their set. It’s enough to make me want to snag Tape Loop vol 1 later today.
