Everlast

Former House of Pain vocalist Everlast, who with his recently released second solo album emerged as one of the true pop-music surprise stories of the year, played an impressive and fervent House of Blues show that had little in common with the untamed antics of his old band.

Former House of Pain vocalist Everlast, who with his recently released second solo album emerged as one of the true pop-music surprise stories of the year, played an impressive and fervent House of Blues show that had little in common with the untamed antics of his old band.

The bluesy 75-minute show was dominated by tracks from Everlast’s excellent rap-rock hybrid album, highlighted by such enticing numbers as new single “Ends,” the throbbing “Get Down,” with its Stevie Wonder-inspired keyboard fills, and the alt-rock hit “What’s It Like,” which spotlighted the scratching skills of DJ Truly Odd.

The singer-guitarist (born Erik Schrody) and his folky hip-hop/rock band, the White Boys, gave a performance that bore many enjoyable elements and styles usually absent at rap shows. A couple of old House of Pain tunes were thrown in for the band’s fans in the pit, among them “Jump Around,” which was updated in a nearly unrecognizable acoustic version.
