FEB 27: CAPITOL RECORDS CONTEST
For College Radio Only EP
Capitol Records' website is having an Everclear contest, with prizes including copies of
Everclear's For College Radio Only EP, the "Everything to Everyone" single, and glow-in-the-dark posters and t-shirts. They're calling it the
I Will Buy You a New Life contest.
Basically, they want you to write down what you'd buy if money were no object, in less than two paragraphs. And do so
by May 15, 1998.
Of course, if you'd rather buy copies of those discs, you can still find them at
Southland CD. But that kind of takes the
fun out of it!
FEB 27: FAN CLUB PASSES
If you're a member of the Everclear Fan Club,
and have a fan club pass, you'll be able to use it all of the shows on the US tour.
This is contrary to an earlier report, and to what it says on the Everclear Fan Club page.
FEB 27: EVERCLEAR IN LAUNCH MAGAZINE
Everclear is featured heavily in the current
issue of the multimedia magazine Launch.
Launch is available on CD-Rom, and includes an interview and some video clips of
