MAR 25: 9:30 CLUB SHOW MOVED TO APRIL 22ND
The 9:30 Club has moved the announced April 21st show to the following night.
All tickets to the April 21st show will be honored at the show on the 22nd.
There may be some confusion here, granted that most Everclear schedules had listed
two shows at the 9:30 Club. However, the second show was never officially announced
by the venue. Because of this, we've noted the first show
as being "cancelled", even though that isn't entirely accurate.

MAR 13: EVERCLEAR ON ROCKLINE
Everclear appeared on the syndicated show Rockline this past Monday. Here's a modest
summary of what they talked about:
Art feels that the title "Slow Motion Daydream" describes the current mood and climate of
the country. He floated many potential titles to the album during the recording process, but
once the line was written (as a lyric in "Sunshine (That Acid Summer)"), it stuck.
Art alluded to the rumors about this being the last Everclear record. He said that there
hasn't been a definite decision one way or the other. On a good day, he feels like they
could make Everclear records forever; on a bad day, six albums sounds like a good number.
At the end of supporting this record, they'll see how they feel.
Art designed the artwork to the album to be reminiscent of the artwork on Led Zeppelin's
Presence where the "black object" is visible in every scene. They used a bunch of
vintage photographs from the Oregon Historical Society and added the spiral to each one.
Art said that they would love to put together a live album, a DVD, and/or a covers
album. The band has wanted to release the covers record for the last few years, and would
love to have it out as a Christmas release. But it's all up to Capitol.
Art talked about the Deadbeat Dad bill that was going through Congress in early 2000.
(Art spoke to Congress in support of it.) It looked like it was going to get passed, since it
seemed to have bi-partisan support. But after the elections of 2000, it was tabled without
a vote, and dropped out of consideration. He said the supporters are hoping to resubmit it at
Art's deal with Artemis Records for Popularity Recordings has ended. Art said he was
unhappy with their support for Flipp's album, so he didn't renew the deal. He retained the
rights to Popularity Recordings, but doesn't intend to restart it until he has time to
give it his full support. He is still planning to put out the Colorfinger and World of Noise
re-releases at some point in the near future.
The press release regarding Everclear's involvement in the Arena Football League was false.
Everclear was approached about working with them, and declined. For some unknown reason,
the AFL decided to announce Everclear's involvement anyway. The band will not be playing
any AFL functions.
MAR 12: MUSIC MIDTOWN
Everclear has been announced as part of the lineup for this year's Music Midtown Festival
in Atlanta, Georgia.
One note about this show - Music Midtown stopped offering one-day passes last year, which
means that if you want to see Everclear, you'll have to buy the standard three-day pass. That
may not be a big deal, though, since the festival features more than a hundred bands over

MAR 11: US TOUR
The tour dates for Everclear's Spring Tour are slowly coming out.
The openers for many shows on the tour will be The Exies
and Authority Zero. (There
are conflicting reports as to which dates Authority Zero will play. We'll try and update
the info once we hear something concrete.)
