By now, your belt buckle should be on it’s last notch thanks to the generous portions of Lenny Epstein’s TV Desserts, which have featured the likes of Simon Borer of Entire Cities, and Nich Worby. In case you’re new to the whole idea, TV Desserts is a part of the Apple Crisp Video Club, and it consists of intimate performances in interesting places such as city buses, parks, and on top of wind turbines. Today’s gluttonous feast of TV Desserts has a beer battered, deep fried, candy-coated centre named Everest, a Los Angeles-based band who opened for Neil Young at the K-Rock Centre. Lenny and the gang caught up with Everest during pre-concert setup inside the KRC. He writes:
This shoot was a great time. Everest now holds the distinction of being the first non-Canadian band filmed by the music video club. We got to tell them about Kingston and what was going on here and they gave us a chance to see the inside of the K-Rock Centre, a small (big for Kingston though) new downtown arena and tell us about Echo Park. We shot the song on the floor of the rink while the stage crew was setting up for the Neil Young show in the background.
The production team for this video was lucky enough to receive, from the band, backstage passes to the concert which was awesome fun and totally impressive. These dudes in Everest deserve all the success that comes their way.
Thus far, when TV Desserts throws new talent into their mixing bowl, you never know what you’ll see or hear. In this case, episode 11 provides an excellent glimpse into the setup required at the K-Rock Centre before a concert, and most notably, it shows off Everest’s amazing performance, as well as their generousity.
