Art Alexakis On The Everclear Show You Get When You Aren’t Getting An Everclear Show

Art Alexakis is touring Australia and while it is a solo and acoustic show, Art says it is pretty much nearly all Everclear.

Art tells Noise11.com, “I put out a solo record in 2019 and I’ll play a song or two off that but fans are already hitting me up for songs like ‘The Crowbar’. There’s a couple of songs I won’t play. Even through I wrote them on acoustic guitar they sound better as a band. I think most of the songs sound pretty good. There will be some deeper songs too. And at the end of every show I come out and sit down. Out bass player is teching for me on tour and he goes out with the wireless mic to the crowd and lets people ask questions or requests. I either do it or I’m a smart ass. We call it the surly jukebox. ‘You really want to put that dime in there?’”.

Everclear were BIG in Australia and still pull good crowds. “On our last two tours down there, we did 17 shows and out of the 17, 13 were sell-outs and the others were over 80s%. We still do really well down there because we go there a lot. The country loves Rock and Roll and you are loyal”.
