Live Bands

Everclear, Vertical Horizon, Fastball

When: Sat., May 13, 7:30 p.m. 2017

Not all retro tours are created equal, and Saturday night’s show is a case in point. In headliner Everclear, you have a band with enough strong pop-rock hits (“Santa Monica,” “Everything to Everyone,” etc.) to knock out a solid set, even if they slip in new tunes that few of us know. In opener Fastball, you have a criminally underappreciated Austin band that had a couple of hits (“The Way,” “Out of My Head”); I think they’ll be the best set of the night. And in middle band Vertical Horizon, well, you have plenty of time to get a beer after Fastball before Everclear starts.
