Harnessing the powerful combination of guitars and daddy issues, songwriter Art Alexakis led the alternative-rock band Everclear to massive success in the 1990s. He penned hits like "Santa Monica" and "Father of Mine," and fronted the band with heavy riffs and personal, relatable lyrics. If you haven't kept up with the band, you might be surprised to hear they are still rocking and rolling, with a new album on the way and a dedicated fan base still celebrating their work. This fall, Alexakis is taking to the road for a national solo tour, and this week he offers an intimate and relaxed evening of stories and songs when he hits the stage on Thursday, Nov. 20, at City Winery, 1030 Main St., Napa. 8pm. $25Ð$30. 707.260.1600.
