Sounds Like San Diego: January 11

Rosemary Bystrak

FM 94/9 has been presenting their About the Music series for years now, and they almost always prove to be bands that go on to hugely successful careers, which generally means seeing them in the relatively small Belly Up is an extra-special treat.

Add to that the fact that the shows are always a bargain and won't break the bank. To kick off the 2011 series, Everest returns to the Belly Up with a headlining show. I've had the good fortune of seeing this band a few times now, and while their recorded music is fantastic, their live performance is really where this band of seasoned musicians shines. Its not always a bad thing to get a song stuck in your head, especially if its a good one, so if you catch yourself singing "Let Go," I'm happy to say the rest of their songs are equally infectious.
