In I-can't-believe-he's-that-old news, Everclear's Art Alexakis celebrated his 50th birthday this year. Fifty. That sort of blew our mind at New Times and made us feel, well, inspired. This year alone, Everclear released its eighth studio record, Invisible Stars, in June, and spent the better part of summer touring alongside Sugar Ray, Lit, Gin Blossoms, and Marcy Playground on the "Summerland Tour." "I've been through a lot," Alexakis recently said in an interview with New Times sister publication Dallas Observer. "There is more of a sense of humor on the album... I've been on a roller coaster for a while now, and that gives you a different perspective." Now the band's back on the road, proving that 50 is the new 20 and that even those eligible for AARP benefits can still rock the tits off intimate rock 'n' roll venues.
