Innsbrook After Hours continues its 31st year with Third Eye Blind at 6 p.m. Although often lumped into the post-grunge category, Third Eye Blind sported a brighter sound than many of their late-’90s peers, taking as much influence from classic pop/rock traditions as the angst-ridden music that dominated the decade. The group scored its first hit in 1997, and after taking a break during the early 2000s, the band returned in 2009 with its fourth studio album, “Ursa Major.” Tickets start at $15. Gates open at 5 p.m. All proceeds from the concert series benefit the National Constitution Plaque Initiative and the Innsbrook Foundation. Rain or shine. For tickets and more information, call the IAH Hotline at 423-1779 or visit http://www.innsbrookafterhours.com
