AUG 27: CHEAP TRICK APPEARANCE

Art will be performing a few songs with Cheap Trick tomorrow night (Sat., Aug. 28) in Rockford, IL.

The show is Cheap Trick's 25th Anniversary bash and is scheduled to include guest appearances from other musicians.


AUG 11: THE TRUTH ABOUT AUSTIN

RollingStone.com's recent story about files being charged against members of Everclear was about half-accurate. Yes, those events transpired. The police even went to the venue that night. But the police determined that night that the woman had not been harmed, and no charges were filed.

These charges may exist. But, if they do, neither Art nor Brian has yet been contacted by anyone in Austin.

EVERCLEAR: AUSTIN, TEXAS INCIDENT

Because there have been numerous conflicting statements in the media and on the Internet regarding the incident which occurred during Everclear's July 31st performance at the Music Hall in Austin, Texas, the band feels compelled to issue the following account of the incident.

During Everclear's performance, audience members were repeatedly throwing objects up on stage. Lead singer, Art Alexakis, had been hit twice by such objects and warned the crowd against continuing this behavior. Shortly thereafter, Art was hit in the face by a glass full of liquid which was again thrown from the audience. Art was hurt and, accordingly, Everclear stopped playing and left the stage. A few minutes later security walked backstage and informed the band that a young woman had identified herself as the person who had thrown the glass (apparently, the audience had identified her as the thrower and had convinced her to confess so that the show would continue). As the band returned to the stage to resume the performance, security brought the woman in question out of the audience in order to eject her from the premises. As she neared the stage area, she started screaming, cursing and spitting at Art and the band. A member of the band's touring crew, agitated by this woman's behavior, poured water on her. She grabbed his leg and tried to pull him off the stage. He pulled his leg free, pushing her away. Security ejected the woman from the venue and she later called the local police. The police interviewed witnesses, including the band, and told the band that they had determined that no injury had occurred to the woman and that there had been no wrong doing on Everclear's behalf. The police sent everyone home. The band is not aware of any criminal charges having been filed against them.
