On tour in support of their second full-length, Homey, CHON stopped by to remind everyone why they continue to sell out venues across the country. Supported by progressive powerhouse Tera Melos, self-described “adventure rock” trio Covet, and the endlessly talented dream-folk sextet Little Tybee, CHON and friends packed out the house, leaving no room for confusion as to why each of these acts have developed dedicated cult-followings. Playing new and old material, CHON made sure to deliver by exciting a crowd-surfing, beachball-hurling mass of fans into a smiling coalescence of movement. They closed out the night with “Can’t Wait,” featuring Covet’s Yvette Young on guest guitar and vocals, and followed that with “Perfect Pillow,” which made a gratifying end to what will hopefully be one of many visits to Orlando.
