Everclear will play every song from their 1997 landmark album “So Much for the Afterglow” for its show Friday at The Republik in celebration of the 20th anniversary of that record.
Fastball’s lead singer Tony Scalzo, center, who was born in Honolulu, along with guitarist/vocalist Miles Zuniga, left, and drummer Joey Shuffield have performed with the band since it formed 1994. This marks the band’s first show in the islands since 1999.

Vertical Horizon catapulted to the top of the charts with the release of their first single, “Everything You Want.” Today, singer/guitarist Matt Scannell, center, is the only original member of the band. He says the direction of its last album, 2013’s “Echoes from the Underground,” was influenced by Joy Division, New Order and Depeche Mode, and takes on an electronic sound.
