Mars Hill, Guantanamo, Is There Anywhere Everclear Won’t Play?

posted by on May 14 at 10:00 AM

In our last installment of “As If You Didn’t Have Enough Reasons to Hate Everclear,” the Portland-based ex-junkie/wife-beating/alt-rockers played Seattle’s #1 homophobic, misogynist breeder church, Mars Hill. In this installment, they’re playing at hot above-the-international-law torture resort GITMO. It’s unclear whether this is as part of the military’s hilarious music as torture practice:

EVERCLEAR have added two special dates to their Spring/Summer tour: a May 26 Memorial Day concert at the U.S. Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and a July 6 performance at the Marine Corps base at Kaneohe Bay, Oahu. “These two are important to the band,” says singer and guitarist ART ALEXAKIS of the multi-platinum EVERCLEAR. “There are folks in uniform all over the world, and at home, looking out for us—and to play for them is an honor. Not a bad way to spend the holiday weekends, not at all.”

Everclear's "Santa Monica" is the true story of a Guantanamo Bay prisoner guard.
