Songs and Stories: An Evening with Art Alexakis and More
Art Alexakis, the charismatic frontman of the multi-platinum rock band Everclear, brings an intimate, collaborative acoustic show to McGlohon Theater. Art has invited three of his friends to join him on stage - fellow platinum artists Chris Collingwood (Fountains of Wayne), Max Collins (Eve 6) and John Wozniak (Marcy Playground). The Songs and Stories tour will deliver a one-of-a kind opportunity for each frontman to perform stripped down versions of their band’s hits, deep tracks, and new songs - and the stories behind all of them. The four men, collectively performing together for the very first time, will share the stage on multiple occasions during the show. The 2+ hour performance will be capped off by an interactive encore, allowing fans a unique opportunity for Q&A, special requests, and ‘come what may’ banter.

McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square seats 730 and has become a showplace for live performances.
Uptown’s only historic theater, McGlohon Theater was originally the First Baptist Church sanctuary. The venue was carefully restored and opened in 1980. With its stained glass windows and Byzantine dome, this historically designated space makes each event a memorable experience. McGlohon Theater features the orchestra (stage) level and the balcony level.
The theater is named in honor of the late, legendary jazz pianist Loonis McGlohon of Charlotte.
