The Grammy-nominated rock band Everclear will swing through Japan to perform at several U.S. bases in September.

The rock group gained popularity in the mid-’90s as the Portland, Ore., group’s singles “Santa Monica,” “Heroin Girl” and “Father of Mine” got significant radio airplay.

The band’s most recent albums include “Songs from an American Movie, Vol. 1: Learning How to Smile,” released in fall 2000, and “Songs from an American Movie, Vol. 2: Good Time for a Bad Attitude,” released a few months later.

Everclear will perform at Misawa Air Base as part of the Oktober Fest events at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 24 in Hangar 949, according to a base spokesman. The performance is free.

The group will visit Sasebo Naval Base to perform Sept. 25 at Nimitz Park, a base Morale, Welfare and Recreation official said. The event is free and the performance time will be announced later.

At Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, the band will perform at the Sakura Theater on Sept. 27. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance at the Marine Corps Exchange and Club Iwakuni cash cages and the Sakura Theater. Tickets the day of the concert are $30, only at the Sakura Theater.

Iwakuni was not able to cover the cost of tickets for servicemembers because of a previous commitment of funds to the Summer Music Festival on Sept. 17, an Iwakuni MCCS spokeswoman said.

Everclear performs at Yokota Air Base at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 29 in Hangar 15, a 374th Services Division official said. Attendance is free.
