It's no surprise that Everest is signed to the Neil Young-owned Vapor Records-seeing them live could quite possibly be the closest re-creation ever of Rust Never Sleeps . And their live show is exactly the way one should experience Everest: With their memorable harmonies-something most bands don't pull off-and an incredible all-around chemistry, it shouldn't be a surprise that Everest's lineup reads like a veritable Who's Who of Los Angeles bands, with current and former members of Great Northern, Sebadoh, Folk Implosion, Earlimart, the Watson Twins, Alaska! and others. And now they're finally coming to town. And for free. Forget the headliner-this time, the opener's the one worth showing up for.
