Neil Young, Death Cab for Cutie, Everest on the bill at Reno Events Center

Musical legend Neil Young will be making his way to the Reno Events Center on Nov. 1 to play a show with Death Cab for Cutie and Everest. This is a great opportunity to see a rock and roll legend in a great venue in the Biggest Little City.

Even if you aren’t too familiar with Young, you’ve definitely heard his music – he is a prolific writer, and his work has been covered by bands in nearly every genre.

Raised in Canada, he first became well known as a guitarist and occasional vocalist for the band Buffalo Springfield. After the band’s breakup, Young became a solo performer. However, he also has spent more than 30 years performing with the super-group Crosby Stills Nash & Young, as well as with the band Crazy Horse. He recorded an album with the Seattle grunge band Pearl Jam in 1995.

Besides his work as a musician, he has also been active in film. Young has produced and/or performed in such concert films as Rust Never Sleeps (1979), Year of the Horse (1997) and many more. He has also been involved with non-musical films, including Neil Young: Human Highway (1982) and Made in Heaven (1987).

Death Cab for Cutie is an American indie rock band formed in Bellingham, Wash. in 1997. It began as a solo project of Ben Gibbard, now the band’s vocalist. The band has five studio albums, with several singles on the Billboard charts.
