We last spoke with the Pimps of Joytime when they opened up for Trombone Shorty at The Fillmore and embarked upon the West Coast leg of their Janxta Funk tour. Kicking off 2013 with a New Year’s Eve performance at the SnowGlobe Music Festival and steadily touring since then, The Pimps of Joytime came back through the Bay Area this past weekend to sell out a two-night residency at The Independent with featured act Vokab Kompany.

Debuting unreleased tracks off of their highly anticipated third album due out this fall, the Pimps kept the crowd rowdy with their unique brand of janxta funk and their stage presence seemed elevated by the new material. Playing what they referred to post-show as their “best Bay Area performances to date,” the Pimps embraced the crowd’s energy and enthusiasm, channeling it into a back-to-back party no one wanted to end.
