Popular band ‘Everclear’ to perform at Alfred University

The Alfred University Student Activities Board has announced a November concert featuring the nationally known band, “Everclear.” The group will perform on Friday, Nov. 20 at AU’s McLane Center beginning at 9 p.m. Doors will open at 8.

The band is best known for hits such as “Santa Monica,” “Father of Mine,” and “Wonderful,” all from the 2009 album, “In a Different Light.”

The concert is open to the public. Tickets are available for $15 a person at Giovanni’s Pizza in Hornell; The Music Alley, Wellsville; the AU Bookstore, Powell Campus Center; and online at (search “everclear”). Alfred University and Alfred State students can purchase discounted tickets at the Alfred University’s Powell Campus Center and Alfred State College’s Orvis Center.

Everclear captured the hearts of Gen-Xers and rock fans everywhere 15 years ago, and hit number one on Billboard’s Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart with original versions of “Santa Monica” and their Top 30 Capitol Records album “Sparkle and Fade.”

The next phase of Everclear begins as lead singer/songwriter Art Alexakis gears up for a unique, new, organic look, by remaking some of his older classics mixed with some “newer” talent.
