With a peak at 29,000 feet above sea level, Mount Everest in Nepal is one of the world’s tallest mountains.  The musicians who comprise the Nevada City rock band Mount Whateverest have been to similar heights.  Their music is a noisy collision of sugar-coated pop, space-jazz interludes and giant, classic rock riffs.  Chanted school yard choruses combine with thumping glam rhythms to create the kind of day-glow rock and roll not heard since T. Rex roamed the Earth.  Armed with distortion boxes, lasers and lots of extra oxygen, Mount Whateverest are so high, they’re breaking through into the bottom of something else entirely.

Mount Whateverest

Gwendolyn and Lucy Giles  of Dog Party have been making music around Northern California for a couple of years.  When they’re not juggling school, sports, pets, life, or tearing up the hill at Squaw Valley USA, they are busy writing, recording, and playing some of the freshest, most exciting fun rock n roll around!  Every minute is a party when P.A.R.T.Y.!!! is playing…we dare you not to tap your feet, challenge you not to sing along on the second listen, and will be in awe if you are NOT in the mood to P.A.R.T.Y. along with Dog Party and their amazing, positive brand of rock!

Dog Party

 

 

Persist To Rise is a solid formation of four great friends driven to play original music.  Our sound is pulled together by four musically motivated minds, a drive to deliver fresh and original material.  We live for music and want to share it with you.

Persist to Rise

 

One of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the vibrant Nevada County music scene is the noise-rock power trio, TV Stones. While still a relatively young band, they’ve already garnered a reputation as a live band that’s not to be missed.

NEO will present a Rock Concert on Friday, January 18, 2013 at the Miners Foundry in Nevada City.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7:00 p.m.  The line up includes The Hot Dark, Opposition, Persist to Rise, Wishing Stick, and Rat Stomp.  Tickets are $8.00 in Advance and $10.00 at the Door.

NEO got started during the summer of 2008 with one adult and two youth because there was nothing to do. We know there aren’t many places open past 7pm that youth can go to here in Nevada County and we wanted to change that. NEO is committed to inspiring the community to create and support more youth friendly areas and drug free activities.
