Eve 6 Is Actually Playing at Night Shift Brewing This Weekend

It's not another concert hoax. The '90s heroes have a free show at Everett Village Fest.

Yesterday, our dreams were dashed when the MBTA quickly denounced rumors that Adele would serenade passersby at the Quincy Center Station. But this morning brings a whole new, differently exciting announcement: Eve 6 is playing a set outside Night Shift on Saturday.

From the brewery’s newsletter:

This Saturday, a series of awesome musical acts will take the stage right in our front yard for Everett’s Village Fest. The day will be capped off by a set from late-90s rock titans Eve 6, and we’ve been counting down the hours till we get to raise a glass and sing along to “Inside Out” and “Here’s to the Night”. We’re open special hours – 3pm-9pm – and we’ll be pouring in the Taproom and the Annex, plus a few outdoor bars so you can enjoy the sun. In addition to all the great live music, there will be lawn games, a veritable fleet of food trucks, and booths run by our neighbors Short Path Distillery, Bone Up Brewing Company, and Down the Road Brewery. Come get your fest on in the Fermentation District! #HeresToTheNightShift

Village Fest is in its second year: The block party is hosted by the city and Mayor Carlo DeMaria, alongside Wynn Resorts and Everett company Teddie Peanut Butter. The city is psyched about the headlining act, DeMaria says in a statement to Boston.

Village Fest was created to showcase the great businesses and culture that exist in the City. I want to thank Wynn resorts for sponsoring our lead band. We are incredibly excited to have secured EVE 6 and their pop-punk music for this event, which will also feature local favorites the Gravel Project, Daemon Chilli, Analog Heart, Rebecca Zama, Herland Brothers, and Pete Kilpatrick Band… This is a celebration of [Everett] and we invite people from all over to join us for an afternoon and evening of great music, food, drinks and fun.

Coming up this Saturday, Village Fest brings an outdoor stage, just to the right of Night Shift’s stellar patio, which blocks off part of Santilli Highway from at 3-9 p.m. There’s live music all day, with Eve 6 actually headlining. Fermentation District neighbors Short Path Distillery and Bone Up Brewing, as well as Down the Road Brewery and Polar Seltzer, are also pouring and partying. There will be a fleet of food trucks, and lawn games.

The City of Everett confirmed the show on Facebook on August 31 (in a post that doesn’t allow embedding). Eve 6 shared the city’s post on September 5. Somehow, the news stayed quiet until today. We have now Liked Eve 6 on Facebook.

“We were all pretty surprised when the city of Everett was able to secure Eve 6 as the headlining band for Village Fest this weekend,” says Night Shift marketing manager Janine Pohorely. “Nostalgia instantly took over and brought us all right back to high school. Pretty stoked to hear ‘Here’s to the Night’ (Shift—hah!) live!”

Eve 6 says the free Everett set is “(probably) [their] last show of the year,” so don’t miss it.
