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.

    Portland legends at a legendary Portland venue, I want to go to this so bad. I promise to be right up front at The Crystal rocking out to “Heroin Girl” if I win these tickets.

  18. Dawn f on September 29, 2021 at 6:18 pm

    • David on September 29, 2021 at 10:16 pm

      They were pretty big when I moved here in the early 90’s, but I like them a lot more now than I did then!

  21. Erika on September 30, 2021 at 12:48 am

    As a teen I skipped school and waited in line for hours for a chance to be an extra in the Wonderful video only to find out I wasnt old enough 🙁 I was lucky enough to see Everclear in concert after that but it would be awesome to take a trip back to the year 2000

  22. Madison Wilcox on September 30, 2021 at 1:59 pm

    Wow – this would be an incredible concert!!

  23. Sadie on September 30, 2021 at 3:26 pm

    This sounds so fun! Yes please 🙂

  24. Heidi on September 30, 2021 at 3:48 pm

    No better place to see this band than in Portland! I’d love to take my daughter to this epic show.

  25. Carol on September 30, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    I need to flash back to the 1990s now.

  26. Hunter M on September 30, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    Can’t wait for this show! Two of my favorite bands

  27. MELISSA on October 1, 2021 at 11:20 am

    gettin nostalgic over here! Loved Everclear so much, i can see it now, the smiley faced CD and packing my portable player to hop on the bus and jam all day between class.

  28. Stuart Morrice on October 1, 2021 at 3:44 pm

    I wish I could go back. Yeah back in time.

  29. Mike S. on October 1, 2021 at 5:02 pm

    I recently reconnected with an old friend and I would sure love to win these tickets and take her to Everclear. We used to listen to the “Sparkle And Fade” CD together back in the day, plus free tickets leaves extra cash for food and drinks at Lola’s Room before the concert.

  30. Jayne Fletcher on October 2, 2021 at 7:34 pm

    I need a night out to get my mind off the tragic events that have happened to my family because of COVID-19. I love this band and need some music to reignite my soul!!

  31. Tina on October 3, 2021 at 11:24 am

    Would love to see Everclear!

  32. Christine Skorjanc on October 3, 2021 at 4:24 pm

    Portland Local and seeing them live !!
    Yes This would be great

  33. Missy Miedema on October 5, 2021 at 12:41 pm

    The sone “Wonderful” by Everclear literallly got me through my teenage years. I still play this song for friends when I try to explain the hardest times of my life. Seeing it live would mean so much!

  34. Mariah on October 5, 2021 at 12:45 pm

    Ooh pick me!🤩 this would be so fun! I love Everclear!

  35. Janie on October 5, 2021 at 1:17 pm

    With my big black boots and an old suitcase, I do believe I’m just a teenage dirtbag looking for my place… at the Crystal Ballroom!

  36. Jessie on October 5, 2021 at 1:32 pm

    Hell yes to Everclear! One of my first CDs! My sister and I would have a blast at this show

  37. Lorea Weckert on October 5, 2021 at 3:10 pm

    One of my first CD’s! Would love to go back to that era!🤞😀🍺🎵

  38. Dannette Cara on October 5, 2021 at 3:14 pm

    Last time I saw this band in Portland, OR it was the late 1990’s. I would love to see them again!! Such a great sound from local artists!

  39. Molli Taylor on October 6, 2021 at 6:02 am

    wow i was a huge fan of everclear back in the day! take me back to zimas and making out in the back staircase please!

  40. Arianne Kimberly Belt on October 6, 2021 at 10:47 am

    Yes!!!! Growing up here: this would be such a treat & enjoyable experience for me-as I last saw them before I moved away in 1997 to finish my studies in another state. Now moving back home (2017) after many years in the Southwest: this show will be another exciting example of why I am a Proud Portland Native only w/goals of becoming that “Volvo Driving Soccer Mom”⚽️
    This music will NEVER die!!
    This group is on of many in the colorful Soundtrack to my life!!!!

  41. Sheena on October 6, 2021 at 4:26 pm

    Oh yessssssssssss. This concert is going to be so fun. Please pick me!

  42. Brian on October 7, 2021 at 2:27 pm

    Would love to see these guys here in Portland!

  43. Ed on October 8, 2021 at 3:19 pm

    They never disappoint! Sounds like a great evening.

  44. Maya on October 11, 2021 at 10:36 am

    My partner and I have been practicing our 90s rock singing for the past 30 years and it would be an honor to bust it out live with a hometown band!

  45. Ashley H. on October 12, 2021 at 1:25 pm

    This would bring back some memories! I’d love to take my husband for his birthday.

  46. Joshua Chang on October 12, 2021 at 2:07 pm

    Welcome home! Art came to my store this one time and I was like every other fan boy and froze in my tracks. This won’t happen again!

  47. Samantha on October 12, 2021 at 11:07 pm

  52. Lena Bainbridge on October 14, 2021 at 7:55 pm

    Would love to attend because their alternative style speaks to me during the autumn season, I was just listening to them the other day!

  53. Glenn on October 15, 2021 at 1:18 am

    Well if it ain’t too late, pick me! What a great Saturday night in Portland.

  54. NJ on October 16, 2021 at 4:43 pm

    Was just going through their songs sharing with my girlfriend. She didn’t say that Everclear was the headliner!! Make my year, it has been a hard one for many, but also for us. We just can’t afford tickets.

  55. Christy on October 17, 2021 at 7:17 am

    Everclear! My 8th grade self would be so proud of me if I got to see them live!!! 🖤🖤🖤

  56. Erica on October 17, 2021 at 11:29 am

    WOot!

  57. Cassandra on October 18, 2021 at 10:06 am

  58. Jackie on October 18, 2021 at 5:19 pm

    I would love to take my friend to see Everclear as it is his birthday weekend and this way I won’t have to buy him a gift.

  59. Whitney on October 19, 2021 at 12:40 pm
