In music trends, everything old is new again.

Bands of the early 2000s made 1980s synth-pop cool. Now, ‘90s alternative rock is back in fashion. Who better to celebrate this trend than the originators of alternative rock, Jane’s Addiction?

Founding band members Perry Ferrell (vocals), Dave Navarro (guitar) and Steve Perkins (drums) — along with new bassist Chris Chaney — will fill Jackson Hall at the Mondavi Center at 8:30 p.m. Saturday with powerhouse, atmospheric rock. Expect everything from classics like “Been Caught Stealin’ ” and “Jane Says,” to the band’s latest, “The Great Escape Artist.”

History may credit Nirvana as the creators of alternative rock, but it’s Jane’s Addiction who set it off. In the mid-‘80s, this L.A. band freed kids from cheesy hair metal with its own unique riff on hard rock, punk rock, indie and Brit-pop. Jane’s Addiction paved the way for bands like Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden.

They were innovators not only in sound, but in spreading that sound to the world. Front man Ferrell kicked off the first alternative rock festival, Lollapalooza, in 1991. Soon after, MTV traded in glam metal videos for grunge.

After releasing two classic albums — “Nothing’s Shocking” and “Ritual de lo Habitual” — the band went through trying times. Navarro and original bassist Eric Avery sobered up and refused to participate in the band’s party lifestyle. Like a troubled long-term relationship, the band was off and on for years.

Since 2010, Jane’s Addiction has reformed and revitalized. Even though the band members are in their 50s and Navarro is a television personality, the music still rocks. Jane’s Addiction influenced countless bands and yet no band sounds quit like it. Like the band’s latest single, its music is an irresistible force.

Tickets are $49.50-$59.50, are available online at www.mondaviarts.org or at the box office, 530-754-2787.
