Over the weekend my BFF came to my house to inform me that Everclear will be playing at this year's State Fair in Great Falls and I was so excited I almost slapped the poor girl right in her face.

'The Summerland Tour 2014' is part of the concert line up at this year's Montana State Fair. It includes Everclear, Soul Asylum, Eve 6 and Spacehog. (I met Eve 6 once, they were dicks.)

Everclear are best known for their hits including "I Will Buy You A New Life" and "Father Of Mine" but in my opinion, their best songs are the deep tracks. 'Sparkle & Fade' is still one of my favorite albums of all time. I've been a fan of Everclear since their first album 'World Of Noise' and this will mark my 14th time seeing them. Although the line up has changed numerous times over the years, the heart and soul of the band, Art Alexakis, still remains and is currently touring with a very solid 5 member band.

The State Fair is July 25-August 2 in Great Falls, other acts performing include Tesla, Restless Heart, David Nail with Maggie Rose and Jake Own with Old Dominion.
