If you want to get ahead in music, it never hurts to have a famous patron. And it definately doesn't hurt to know exactly which one you desire. A few months after forming in 2007, LA Indie Rock act Everest heard Neil Young was starting a record label and sent a demo to his management. A short time later, Young showed up at an Everest club gig during the Sundance Film Festival in Utah. Digging what he saw, Young quickly signed the band to his vapor records label and released the haunting "Ghost Notes" Lp shortly afterwards.
Since then, Everest has logged thousands of road miles opening for a who's who in Americana Rock, including My Morning Jacket and (naturally) Mr.Young. Tuesday marks the release date of their 2nd album, "On Approach" and they are celebrating it by opening for Seatle-based soft rockers Minus the Bear at Revolution. While Everest's moody, contemplative arena rock-by-way-of-the-afgan-whigs would be a relaxed interlude for nearly any other show, compared to Minus The Bear's ethereal minimalism, they might as well have AC/DC's "For Those About To Rock" cannon onstage.
So go get your mellow on Tuesday night. We (will )salute you.
