PORTLAND, Ore. - Everclear has agreed to perform a concert during the 2009 Kells Irish Festival, said the owners of Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub in Oregon.

"We feel very fortunate to have a great band like Everclear headline this year's festival," co-owner Lucille McAleese said in a statement. "The fact that Everclear's singer, guitarist and songwriter Art Alexakis lives in Portland will help draw a big, local crowd, as well as fans from around the region."

The March 15 concert is part of the five-day Kells 2009 Irish Festival in Portland, McAleese said.

The band's hits include "Santa Monica," "Everything to Everyone," "I Will Buy You a New Life," "Father of Mine" and "Wonderful."
