[ROCK UNDERDOGS] Despite promising chops, Everest hasn’t quite been able to make the big leap to widespread acclaim. The super-quintet, comprising members from Earlimart, Slydell, Sebadoh and Folk Implosion, have the stylizing of My Morning Jacket and Wilco: A band that twists comfortably among psych-rock, indie, classic rock and alt-country and somehow brings it all back around to sound like it fits together in some divine, music-of-the-gods fashion. And yet, Everest has largely remained a supporting act throughout its six-year career. Though the group closed out 2012 opening for Neil Young and Crazy Horse, it’s high time the band took center stage as a headliner. Word to the wise: Take in this show before the rest of the world’s ears catch on and you’re paying $50 to seem ’em in an arena.
