This Saturday, L.A.-based band Everest — deemed “Dylanesque punk” by USA Today — will play a free show for KCRW at One Colorado in Old Pasadena, Calif. KCRW’s own DJ Chris Douridas will open and close the show, which runs from 3:30 – 9:30 p.m. Get parking info and directions here.
Everest’s frontman Russell Pollard recently chatted with spinner.com about the band’s sophomore album On Approach, revealing that its popular feisty opener “Let Go,” was originally the odd man out.
“It started off as a riff Jason [Soda] came up with and over time we kept tweaking it and it kept morphing,” he says. “We then added a second drum kit and the song developed into what it is now. It’s become our favorite to play live … for me especially, since I get to return to my roots as a drummer and play alongside Davey [Latter], while singing.”
