Third Eye Blind added to Clay County Fair Grandstand Lineup

Spencer, Iowa — The Clay County Fair powered by SMU announces Third Eye Blind with a special guest to be announced later as part of the SRG Concert Series at the 2024 Clay County Fair on Saturday, September 14, at 7:30 pm.

Since 1997, San Francisco’s Third Eye Blind has recorded five best-selling albums and assembled one career retrospective. Led by Stephan Jenkins, 3EB has earned worldwide success during a tumultuous group of years when the major-label recording industry was finally losing its grip on an enterprise that for decades it had dominated with steely efficiency. Nothing could have made 3EB happier!

Third Eye Blind’s 2021 album Our Bande Apart was recorded when lockdown ended, with Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast and Ryan Olson of Poliça. The band has continued to have gained artistic clarification—and, surprisingly, a fanbase that is larger, younger and more dedicated than ever.

Third Eye Blind is supporting SeaTrees on its 2024 tour, an organization that helps restore a portion of the Palos Verdes Kelp Forest. The ocean has the power to restore climate change. The latest science shows that globally, kelp forests can sequester more carbon than mangrove forests – restoring these sequoias of the sea is critical to solving climate change as 93% of all carbon in the carbon cycle is stored in our oceans (meaning just 7% is stored across our atmosphere and land biosphere.

Third Eye Blind joins KANSAS, Trace Adkins, The Mavericks, and Blues Traveler as part of the SRG Concert Series for the 2024 Clay County Fair. The fair runs September 7th – 15th.
