Live: Everest, Houston

Everest performs an acoustic in-store at Cactus Music in Houston.

We caught a special in-store performance at Houston’s Cactus Music and Video May 14 by Everest, the great L.A. rock band currently touring in support of their new album On Approach.  This was an acoustic performance, so the short set focused on the band’s roots rock like “East Illinois” and “Tall Buildings.”  It would have been cool to hear the plugged-in-with-drums version of “Let Go,” the nifty first single from the new album – which I’m sure Everest performed later that night at House of Blues (opening for Minus The Bear).  I have had a chance to hear On Approach, and it’s excellent – on only their second album (and first for a major label), Everest has hit its stride and rocks as confidently as Wilco or the Jayhawks in their prime.
