Music Scene: Nov. 9–15
“I am still living with your ghost. Lonely and dreaming of the West Coast.”
— Lyrics from “Santa Monica” on the album “Sparkle and Fade”
Stop dreaming. Everclear and guests Eve 6 and the Namesake will play at 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12, at Mesa Theater and Lounge, 538 Main St. Doors will open at 7 p.m.
“I don’t want to be your downtime. I don’t want to be your stupid game.”
According to the biography at iTunes, “Everclear’s Northwestern grunge-punk style was hardly revolutionary when the band rose to popularity in 1995. The trio’s hook-ridden songs and Art Alexakis’ “us against them” lyrics were taken to heart by bored Gen-X teens.”
“With my big black boots and an old suitcase, I do believe I’ll find myself a new place.”
Everclear’s second album “Sparkle and Fade” was released in 1995 and featured “Santa Monica” and “Heroin Girl.” That album eventually rose to platinum status.
“So Much for the Afterglow” followed in 1997 and went double-platinum, particularly due to the success of the modern rock hits “Everything to Everyone,” “I Will Buy You a New Life” and “Father of Mine.”
“I don’t want to be the bad guy, I don’t wanna do your sleepwalk dance anymore.”
Everclear’s first album of new material in six years, “Invisible Stars,” was released this past summer.
“I just want to see some palm trees, I will try and shake away this disease.”
Members of the band Eve 6, touring with Everclear, weren’t of even legal drinking age when they were presented with their first platinum record, according to the bio at eve6.com.
“Thus, life came hard and fast at the members of SoCal pop-punk trio, whose meteoric success in the late ‘90s and early millennium ingrained their anthemic radio hits into the fabric of the lives of a whole generation,” the website says.
Eve 6’s self-titled album released in 1998 attained platinum success with hit singles “Inside Out” and “Leech.” “Inside Out” reached No. 1 on the Modern Rock charts and crossed into Top 40 radio.
