Meet new Vegas band Trevor Jones and the Joneses

Leslie Ventura

Your drummer has to cancel last minute, you can’t hear anything through the monitor and you smashed a finger two nights before your show. What’s a musician to do? Drink whiskey, of course.

That actually wasn’t a cure-all for Trevor—of new local band Trevor and the Joneses—at his band’s Neon Venus show this past Saturday. But liquor did help the lead singer ease into his flippant, psychedelic-punk persona. And Vegas could use some more of that. The set started out slow—the small Downtown art theater’s 50-seat venue stayed shy of 15 heads most of the night—but after a short intermission to numb the wound, Jones returned with newfound moxie. His Lou Reed-meets-Pete Shelley impression in full-force, original song “Sneak,” Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s “666 Conducer” and The Mighty Lemon Drops’ “Inside Out” showed off some definite potential.
