This November, Everclear and Wheatus will head out on a handful of West Coast tour dates.

These gigs will be a carryover of sorts to the Summerland tour, which recently found those two alt/rock acts sharing the stage with Living Colour and Hoobastank.

Said Everclear main man Art Alexakis of this upcoming quick trek with Wheatus: “Even though it’s been only 3 years, it seems like forever since Everclear toured the West Coast. I love the energy and passion of playing in the place where it all started for us almost 30 years ago, and bringing our friends Wheatus with us is going to make it even more special, especially for anyone who loves ‘90s alt rock.”

And Wheatus’ Brendan Brown:

“We don’t get to tour the West Coast too often, so it’s a miracle to finally do this with a band that perfectly exemplifies my daydreams of the place. Thanks to Everclear for making it happen; we couldn’t be more stoked.”

Wheatus, of course, is responsible for “Teenage Dirtbag,” the smash-hit 2000 single that was an inescapable piece of alt/pop with an infectious refrain and signature high-pitch vocals from Brown. The band re-recorded the song in early 2020 to commemorate its 20th anniversary, but here’s the original:

And as for Everclear, Alexakis is the figurehead, the consistent member of the group who was front and center for the band’s breakthrough in the mid 1990s, continuing on for the decades to come.

Everclear’s most recent studio album was 2015’s Black is the New Black, while the band’s commercial peak began with 1995’s Sparkle & Fade, led by “Santa Monica”:

Its follow-up, 1997’s So Much for the Afterglow:, had ubiquitous ’90s FM radio standards such as “Father of Mine”:

All this to say: Expect a ton of singalongs at these shows.
