Considering Everclear has written and recorded some truly iconic ’90s alt-rock hits, it would be all too easy these days for the band to be a victim of its past successes, relegated to performing as a glorified jukebox, existing to satisfy the nostalgic cravings of Gen Xers everywhere. But singer-guitarist Art Alexakis isn’t about to start phoning it in now. Everclear continues to tour extensively, and while it’s a virtual surety that no Everclear gig is complete without a rendition of “Santa Monica” and “Father of Mine,” lately the band has found that exploring the full range of past material – especially the “deep cuts” – not only gives fans a rare treat, it also injects new life into the band’s live dynamic.
“By mixing it up and digging into the catalogue, it still makes it fun and relevant for us, and I think for the fans as well,” says Alexakis. ” It’s still important to play the hits, but by playing those other songs as well, it makes it all seem more vibrant and real. Even though I recorded some of those songs 20 years ago, I haven’t played them in a long time, so it’s like reinventing the wheel. I’m having more fun now than I have in years. I think all of us are.”
Formed by Alexakis in 1991 in Portland, Oregon, Everclear has enjoyed a lengthy career spanning 11 studio releases, numerous videos, thousands of shows and accolades that include a 1998 Grammy nomination. Like a true survivor, Alexakis has soldiered on through multiple lineup changes over the years: During the “classic” era,the band also included Craig Montoya on Bass and Greg Eklund on drums; the current touring lineup features longtime members Davey French (guitar) and Freddy Herrera (bass), as well as drummer Brian Nolan (also withAmerican Hi-Fi), who has performed with Everclear on multiple past tours.
What’s not to love about these bands or the 90’s?! I’d love to see them!
Let’s be clear…that i should win these Everclear tickets. This concert will be a blast.
I want to take my best friend and relive the 90s. The Crystal Ballroom is a great venue and Lola’s Room is always my pre concert food and drink spot.
I’m just a teenage dirt bag! (Sadly not that young anymore lol)
I would love to see Everclear
We’ve never been to the Crystal ballroom for a concert and this would be so fun! Right around my partner’s birthday, so would be a great surprise!
Super fan of Everclear and I need to get out of my house! Going Covid crazy
The Crystal and amazing 90s artists. Perfect.
The 90’s, Everclear (the band or alcohol) & Crystal Ballroom? Who wouldn’t want to experience the best of the 90’s Alt-Rock bands ever!!
I LOVED THEM!!!
Huge Everclear fan and I would loooove to win tickets to their show!!!! Let’s go!!!!
This is my era… and seen members before they were big at down town venue’s. I was definitely a participant in the grunge scene. Love to see them. Single Mom needs a night out!!
Clearly a good show
This would be an awesome thing to do with my dad
I remember him listening to them all the time when he would drop me off for school
Wait! I can relive my youth while also being older and wiser?!
Still rocking still local. Love these guys
I’d love to see them! We just moved to this area and just realized they were local. Throwback to my favorite band!
Give this aging Teenage Dirtbag a chance to relive her youth. P.S. Class of 2000 rules!
Our grandson loves this band. I’d like to take him cause he cant afford tickets.
I love 90s alt rock. Pick me.
I’d love to go to this show to relive all my teen fan girl ing out!
This would be a great show & local artists coming back and showing their live to Portland…love it yes great date night out too
It would be fun to take my daughter so she can see what I was listening to at her age!
I’m from PDX and have never seen them. Hopefully this is the time.
Hearing Everclear play “Father of Mine” in person would make my year.
Because I’m just a teenage dirtbag baby 🤷🏻♀️
I love 90’s bands and would soooooo love to win these tickets! It would be so much fun. Pick me!!!!
I love Everclear and going to concerts at The Crystal Ballroom. Please pick me!
I’d be so grateful to win this because my boyfriend and I are 90s babies, grew up to this music in the background, and don’t get a lot of chances to go out due to budget constraints. A classic band for the crystal, a good night and time for sure
