Everclear entertains pony fans

 

Everclear hit the stage on Sept. 11 at the peak of Boulevarding. The band rocked out until just before the crowd made their way to Ford Stadium to watch the utter decimation of the UAB Blazers in a stunning 28-7 victory.

 

Everclear made history for themselves in the early to mid nineties, spanning almost a decade with well-known songs and chart topping hits. Their two most well-known songs are “Father of Mine” and “Wonderful,” both of which are memorable songs from many Mustangs’ late elementary and early middle-school years, making Everclear a welcome blast from the past.

 

The band interacted well with the crowd and made the most of their college surroundings. The lead singer of the band, Art Alexakis, said of one woman in the crowd, “Shout out to the girl in the front! You’re parents would be so proud, guys older than your dad just saw your panties.” 

 

Alexakis kept the crowd entertained for the rest of his time on stage with snappy quips about the audience, most notably regarding the seemingly endless array of white dresses and cowboy boots.

 

Everclear hits the road again soon; their next show will be in Dewey Beach Del., at Bottle & Cork on Sept. 27.
