Summerland Tour brings Everclear, Eve 6, Soul Asylum, Spacehog

Most of the other 30-plus stops for the Summerland Tour come with a price tag of at least $25. Not the case when a four-pack of '90s icons come barreling into St. Pete on Saturday. VIP tickets start at just under $30 (with meet-and-greet packages going all the way up $250), but who needs extra luxury when you can print out your free ticket and just waltz into Vinoy Park, where Summerland Tour founders Everclear will dig through a 20-year-old catalog, while Eve 6 resurrects hits like Inside Out and Soul Asylum show why they've remained a force in Midwestern alt-rock since their debut album dropped in 1984. The cherry on top is the inclusion of NYC Brit-rockers Spacehog, who will play songs from a brand new album, last year's As It Is on Earth, while surely pleasing fans with hits like In the Meantime. Doors for the show open at 2 p.m. so bring some protection for a long day in the sun. Free (VIP tickets $29.75 and up) at Ticketfly.com.
