A Picture of Everett Verner

Growing up without a lot of musical influence around his home, Everett found himself easily pulled in by the grunge and alternative rock movements of the mid 90’s. Impatient and tired of only having corporate radio at his disposal he relished the hours tracking down anything from Weezer B-sides to making sure he could get his hands on complete collections of influential musicians that he’d never heard on the radio as he stumbled from everything between Townes Van Zandt to Aslan. This was perpetuated by the occasional music video (back when those were a thing) that would catch his eyes and ears, namely the first time he sat puzzled watching Radiohead’s "Karma Police" video. In college, Everett hosted a radio show for a couple years that spurned his interest forward into the older analog music of the 60s and 70s as well.

Currently, Everett spends his time working for a non-profit organization and seeing bands that come through town. His favorite recent albums are Sisyphus' self-titled debut, Wild Moccasin's 88 92, and Run the Jewels 2 self titled debut. Everett has been a member of the Bragg Jam Music Festival for 5 years, currently serving as President, and loves spending time at other festivals around the country in his spare time.

SXSW Day Five – March 16th

We started out our final day at an outdoor free event by the river that was in honor of the recently passed Levon Helm, though you wouldn’t know it unless you asked what the water jugs were for when you got through security. I’ve never been hassled so much by security. They made me throw […]

SXSW Day Four – March 15th

We spent all afternoon of day four coordinating Acoustic Alley sessions. The logistical nightmare of getting 16 very busy musicians’ schedules to align appropriately during the busiest music week of the year wore us out come five o’clock. We went to happy hour at Chapala Taqueria in East Austin, pounded 2 dollar margs, and reveled […]

SXSW Day Three – March 14th

SXSW Day 3 started out with us taking a trip off the beaten path. As we mentioned in our preview, there are over 2,000 official SXSW bands playing official showcases, and probably about that many free unofficial shows for more independent labels, venues, and bands. We started out with a trip to the Community Records […]
