review

Ok so the venue was really cool. I guess it filled up to about 2500-3000 people by the time they went on... which wasn't until 9:50, btw..... cocks.

But I had sidled down to about center and toward the back where it wasn't too crowded. It was standing room only GA.

The opening act was intense. They were noise based, atmospheric and loud as hell. Lots of feedback, rhythmic pulsing and throbbing. I was pretty into it until the last song they did which was to discordant and squealy for my ears.

A Place to Bury Strangers



But Jane's Addiction ...after about a half hour wait, finally came on, and did Up the Beach. And then right into Ocean Size.... both sounded great. These guys have not lost a beat in 27 years since they released it. Navaro has a few more tattoos.... but they sounded tight and practiced.

it took me about 5 songs to realize that they were doing the album in order. That hada very satisfying effect. If you've listened to an album over and over.... you begin to tie them together song by song.... so when you hear Ted, just admit it (the song that has 'nothing's shocking' in it) you expect to hear 'Standing in the Shower thinking' right after. and last night, you DID. Cool.

They pulled out the kettle drums for Jane says, as you can tell if you clicked the above.. so THAT was AWESOME. It started a little thin, but they got into it pretty quickly. I think the only minor bummer was that they omitted "Thank You Boys" or maybe I just missed it? it's a 45 second song... It might just not be do-able live. It has organs and snapping fingers and what not. But there WERE crowd surfers a couple times, so I think that evens things out.

So, before you know it, they're through the whole album. But right out of Pigs in Zen, they went into 'Been Caught Stealing' and everyone started dancing. REally smoking hot version of that. I hope I can find it, I didn't do video of that because I was dancing. Got right sweated up doing that song.... and then Perry said thanks, and walked off.






BUT WAIT!




There's MORE!


What song would you hope to hear as an encore? me? 3 Days. That's 14 minutes long, has great drums, cool lyrics, and I like the live versions I've heard better than the studio. So I'm telling that to my neighbor in the crowd, and he's like... yeah... but I'd like to hear 'Stop!'

That's a good one too.


Well, they did both. IN THAT ORDER.

we high fived

For the encores, these girls came out in lingerie and danced on the speakers.... and then two of them got hooked up to harnesses and were hoisted up to swing from the rigs. I'm pretty sure they were hanging by their pierced backs. you can see it pretty clearly......

check it out:



awesome awesome awesome.

five thumbs up.

I'd really like to go to the one in Philly tonight. I'm amazed that it's not sold out.

Jim, were you using your phone, or your camera?

Cuz the audio was pretty awesome. Video, was good, too, but, dayum, the audio sounded like it came from the board.

I'm glad you had a good time, classic. Maybe I'll go see them one of these days.


We got tickets to see Colin Hay in November at the Birchmere, a fairly small venue in Alexandria. It's going to be awesome. He's a small venue kind of guy. He's perhaps my new favorite musician.
