Alternative rockers from the 1990s are gradually morphing into “classic rock” icons before our very eyes. Of course, none of these musicians is doing anything particularly radical by way of transforming themselves and hopping demographic descriptive borders. Rather, simply by dint of surviving, bands like Eve 6 are finding themselves viewed as elder statesmen of ’90s alt-rock and arena-pop.
Having a strong new album – as Eve 6 does in “Speak in Code” – doesn’t hurt. In fact, “Code” marks the first time that Eve 6 founders Max Collins, Jon Siebels and Tony Fagenson have released new music since going on hiatus way back in 2004.
Eve 6 will highlight the “Speak in Code” material and hits from yesteryear – quite probably, the likes of “Here’s to the Night” and “Inside Out” among them – with a concert at 8 p.m. Saturday in the Bear’s Den at the Seneca Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls. Tickets start at $55 (box office, Ticketmaster).
